If you’re getting ready to pack up one house and move to another, you might want to enlist the professional packing services in Atlanta from All My Sons Moving & Storage. Our team can pack your entire house, safely transport your valuables, and unpack at your new residence. If, however, you decide you want to take a swing at packing your items without professional help, our Atlanta movers can still save the day by providing you with all the necessary packing supplies to get the job done. These include boxes, protective packing material (bubble wrap, packing paper), and durable tape.
Packing an entire house is a big task, and you might want to ask your friends for a little assistance. How can you convince your friends to ditch their plans for a day and help you with some hard labor? We’ve got you covered with these easy ways to get your friends on board:
Ask Ahead of time
People will be more inclined to help if you give them plenty of notice. Make sure you ask at least a week or two ahead of time so your friends can clear their schedule.
Give them incentive
Let your friends know they can get the first pick of items you plan to give away or donate.
Provide snacks and drinks
Your friends will have a better attitude about helping you pack if you keep plenty of refreshments on hand. This will keep everyone energized, refreshed, and eliminates the need to leave the house.
Reward them afterwards
Once the move is over, make sure you thank your friends for their help. This can be done by hosting a dinner night at your new place, or taking your friends out for drinks at a local bar.
Use this advice from All My Sons Atlanta Movers when you want to ask your friends to help you move. If you do it right, they’ll help you each time.
