TOP RESIDENTIAL MOVING TRENDS FOR 2023
Moving can be a daunting task, whether you are moving to a new city, state, or country. If you are planning to relocate soon, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest residential moving trends and professional recommendations. In this blog post, Call the Movers will explore the top residential moving trends for 2023 that you should consider.
RESIDENTIAL MOVING TREND #1: CONTACTLESS MOVING SERVICES
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a shift in the way we live our daily lives. Moving industry had to reorganize and embrace new health and safety protocols. Masks, gloves, disinfecting surfaces, and constant employee testing became a new norm. Restricted in-face meetings have limited in-home estimating as well.
Virtual moving estimating became significantly important for all types of moving: local, residential, business, and long-distance. Online estimating became increasingly popular to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus, and to save up time. Homeowners were allowed to for greater convenience and flexibility, especially for those with busy schedules.
Call the Movers highly recommends checking movers’ credibility online before signing with any moving service providers. Reliable moving companies such as Call the Movers publicly declare their licensing, and policies and have trust-worthy reviews in many different industry platforms, for example, Better Business Bureau, Home Advisor, or Google Reviews.
RESIDENTIAL MOVING TREND #2: SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
Smart home technology has been increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s no different when it comes to residential moving trends. Many people are looking for new homes that are equipped or could be equipped with the latest smart home technology, such as voice-activated assistants, smart thermostats, and automated lighting.
Growing demand for smart home technologies adds a new service to movers’ portfolios as well. More and more moving companies start offering installation services for these smart home devices, making it easier for homeowners to integrate their technology during their move.
Call the Movers remind that not each and every moving company offers these services, so better to inquire and agree on that before the actual moving date. Keep in mind, the integration of smart home technologies requires additional movers’ skills and time. So, this will add up as additional costs to your initial moving estimate.
RESIDENTIAL MOVING TREND #3: ECO-FRIENDLY MOVING
Actually, eco-friendly moving options are more necessary rather than trends nowadays. Eco-moving is likely to continue in 2023 as more customers demand environmentally responsible moving services.
More and more homeowners are inquiring about eco-friendly moving options that are kinder to the environment. Customers are eager to know what type of packing materials will be used and how they will be utilized after their residential move.
Call the Movers meets the demand for sustainable moving options to reduce carbon footprint. Our moving company offers using recycled boxes, packing materials, and reducing the amount of waste produced during the move.
By the way, have you ever heard about moving blankets or pads? Moving blankets provide excellent protection and safeguard large fragile and valuable items like furniture. Pads also prevent belongings from damage, scratches, and scuffs. And the best part – Call the Movers use these blankets because they are reusable!
RESIDENTIAL MOVING TREND #4: FULL-SERVICE, BUT PERSONALIZED MOVING
In the past, moving was a one-size-fits-all service. Today, customers seek personalized moving services that cater to their unique needs. Of course, everything is under one moving service provider, because this allows for greater convenience and less stress during the moving process.
People who plan to relocate require different services including packing, loading/unloading, transferring to storage, and as mentioned above assembling various smart gadgets or furniture. The more flexible the moving company is, the more likely it’s to meet the demand.
