Asking Friends and Family to Help You Move


Moving is said to be one of the most stressful experiences in a person’s life, so you have to stay focused and organized to make it as painless as possible. There are many things you can do to make it easier, such as including more people into the process. So apart from enlisting the help of your top moving company Liberty Moves from Delray Beach, Florida, you should ask for some help from your family and friends. They can help you stay on the top of things, and keep everything more organized and efficient. You can create a list of tasks and let everyone pick one or more things to take care of. Here are some of the things to keep in mind if you plan to ask for their help.


Asking on time


Taking into consideration that everyone has some obligations, jobs, children, or anything else, you should ask them well in advance so that they can make plans and tell you whether they will be able to help or not. That way you will also know in advance who you can count on, and adapt your moving plans accordingly.  The earlier you ask, the better. As soon as you have the moving date, or when you find out you’re moving, even if it is several months away, let people know.


Lists, tasks and options


The secret to a well-done job is good organization – and moving checklists. It is important to list everything that needs to be done, and everything that you will need help with. If you have helpers, you have to remember that not everyone can do everything. Some simply can’t, and some are not up to it. If you introduce them with a list of tasks and give them different options, they can choose which tasks they can do most efficiently.


Staying organized and being a leader


It is important to have everything under control and to be a leader to your team of helpers. Stay on top of everything and be ready to answer their questions, as well as solve problems that will inevitably come your way. And remember not to stress about the little things. Stay focused, and everything will go smoothly.




This is a simple, but very helpful part of the moving process. Try to label everything you pack, every box, as detailed as possible. Write down what the boxes contain, whether they are fragile, and to which room they are supposed to go to. This will save you a lot of time going through the boxes and sorting everything out, and it will also help the movers because they will know where to put everything and be more efficient as well.


Taking care of your helping crew


Don’t forget to feed your team of helpers and give them something to drink. Make sure that they take breaks from time to time since this could be an exhausting process. Make them sandwiches or order a pizza, it is the easiest way, and everyone will appreciate it. Prepare enough water, and make sure you all stay hydrated, but also don’t forget to bring some beer and wine for those over 21.
