Good Communication for a Successful Move

We can’t stress enough the importance of good communication between you and our team of movers. You can help us help you by providing clear communication throughout the entire moving process. From the first phone call to the day we move your belongings, good communication will help your move go smoothly. If you’re ready to communicate with some Minneapolis professional movers, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’re going to cover some crucial communication we’re going to require.

Initial Communication

During your initial conversation with us, it will be important to hammer out a couple details. When you give us a call, make sure you have enough time to chat. We’ll need to discuss some of the particulars associated with your move. Every move is different and has different requirements, so we want to make sure we have everything in place.

Items with Special Requirements

We understand that there are some items that will need to be handled with extra care. It will need to be communicated which items are fragile. Also, if you have electronics, musical instruments, antiques or other items that need special attention, be sure to let us know. Labeling items can be helpful, but you can also tell us on the day of your move.

The Home You’re Moving To

If there are any special considerations at the home you’re moving to, you’ll want to communicate those to your movers. Make sure they know where they need to park and how to best access the building. If you’re moving to a townhome or a row home, inform your movers which home you’re in to make sure the process is seamless. Once we’ve found the home, we’ll need you to further communicate how you want things arranged.

Minneapolis Movers: 4 Things on Your Moving List to Think About Now

Are you moving in a few weeks? You have fallen in love with your new home and you have your Minneapolis movers booked, now all you have to do is start the packing process. Though moving day may seem so far away, there are some things you should start thinking about now. By beginning preparations a substantial amount of time in advance, you have a better chance of getting it all done. Don’t wait until the last minute and stress about what’s going where. Here are four things you should start thinking about now:

1. Food: Food is tricky because if you’re not careful, it can spoil. Be sure to eat up all food that could potential cause a problem. Plan to defrost your fridge the day before you move. It will be important to have a clean, dry fridge on moving day.

2. Cable/ Internet: Be sure to arrange to have your cable and Internet transferred to your new home. This is one thing that tends to slip through the cracks. While a couple days without Internet aren’t the end of the world, it sure is inconvenient.

3. Disassemble: Disassemble anything that needs to be disassembled. When your Minneapolis movers show up, they will be ready to get started right away. By having things disassembled and packed, you can ensure a timelier move.

4. Manage Fragile Items: Start collecting anything fragile and make sure you pack them separately in boxes labeled “fragile.” By taking extra considerations ahead of time to have them packed away, you’ll avoid them getting broken in the shuffle.

Movers Help Envision the Other End of Things

When you’re moving, it’s understandable you are focused on the home in which you’re currently living. You have a lot to think about. Boxes need packed and furniture needs wrapped. But, you can’t forget completely about the end location. It is easier for our team of Twin Cities movers to help if you have a plan in place. Utilize our capabilities while you have us there. It would be a shame if you had to rearrange your entire home after we left because you didn’t know where you wanted things. In this blog, we’re going to cover some simple steps you can take to have at least a basic plan in place.

Room Assignment
Go through your new home and figure out what you’re going to use each room for. Assign a name to each room because it will help you get your thoughts organized. If you have children, let them choose their rooms prior to moving day. It may be a good idea to even label each room with a sticky note, so it’s easier for the movers to place your belongings in the correct location.

It will be important to get all the furniture close to where you want it. We want to make sure the dinner table makes it to the dining room and each bed set makes it to the correct bedroom. Have a clear plan of which room you would like each piece of furniture placed in. If you want to reorganize from there, go for it. But, take advantage of our crew while you have them at your home!

Be Present
Plan on being present the day you have scheduled the movers to come. The best laid plan is only as good as the person with the plan. If we can’t communicate with you during the moving process, it will make our job harder. We want to help you to the best of our ability, but that requires your input.

How Weather Plays a Role on Moving Day

If you’re about to move, you’ve probably spent a lot of time preparing. Transferring the contents of one home to another is quite the undertaking! While you’re making all the necessary preparations to move, don’t forget to check the weather. Mother Nature can have an impact on your moving day. While the team at RJ Moving is trained to deal with all types of natural weather phenomena, it is still important to be aware of the weather forecast. If you are moving anywhere around Minnesota, like Minneapolis, professional moving services can greatly reduce the stress associated with moving. Help them help you by being prepared for adverse weather.


This is exactly what everyone wants for their move. If you have a fair day, take advantage of it. Help your movers by being prepared so they can complete your move quickly and efficiently. Have parking available and boxes packed.


Rain poses a couple of problems. First and foremost, you need to protect your items. If you’re going to be using cardboard boxes, it may be a good idea to shrink-wrap them in case of adverse weather. Any furniture will need to be covered, especially if its cloth or wood. It is common practice for us to wrap furniture in a blanket, but an added layer of plastic won’t hurt. Another concern on a rainy day is slippery conditions. Be patient with your movers and help to make their job as easy as possible.


Snow on your moving day can be a real bummer. Extra precautions and considerations will need to be made on a snowy day. Be sure to remove snow and ice from your driveway, walkways, stairs and porches before your movers arrive. Also, don’t forget about the end location. The safety of our customers and our employees is our number one priority, so be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
