Tips to help you move easier
- Pick a date that falls in the middle of the week to cut your moving costs. Avoid moving on the weekends since most movers are busy and the rates are high.
- Pack essential items in different boxes, preferably clear plastic bags that can easily be distinguished. Make sure the bag is loaded last and unloaded first so that you can easily access your items. Having necessities like toiletries, toothbrush, a change of clothes and laptop chargers will save you the headache of sifting through every box looking for your pajamas.
- Pack your items room by room. Items that belong to the kitchen should be packed together. The same applies to all the other rooms. This way, you’ll have an easy time when unpacking and arranging your items at your new house.
- Save money by using your suitcases, drawers, baskets and any other container you have lying around. You’ll spend less purchasing the boxes and save on space as well.
- Use plastic bags to store any bolts and screws. Attach them to the furniture they belong to using masking tape. This will save you searching for them in a pile of stuff.

Why you need a professional moving company
- The right equipment: Moving heavy and bulky items can only be possible if you have the right tools and equipment. Professional movers are well equipped with tools that make the work simpler. They use dollies, hoisting straps, blankets, and specially designed trucks to safely move your items from one point to another. They are experts in their work and will make sure your items are delivered on time.
- Protection for your items: Professional movers are insured which means they are responsible for your items during the moving process. They use their skills to safely pack, load and unload your items with minimal damages. In case of an accident, you are guaranteed reimbursement.
- Professionalism: A professional moving company will always honor the contract you signed. They will come prepared to deliver the services you paid for. Unlike your friends who have other obligations, professional movers will make sure you’re settled within the stipulated timeframe.
- Experience: It’s advisable to hire movers who have been in the business for a long time. The quality of service delivery is of high quality since they have experienced many challenges and devised ways of overcoming them. You can relax with the knowledge that the movers will handle your items with utmost care.
How to choose the right moving company
- References: If there’s anyone you know that has recently moved, give them a call to find out their moving experience. You can also get references by requesting the company you want to hire for the numbers of past customers. Companies with a good reputation will be recommended by a majority of people.
- Don’t rely solely on online reviews: Sometimes customers may have personal vendetta against a particular moving company and will give a biased review. Do your own research and check reputable sites like Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau. Always trust your instincts and hire a company you feel will give you better services.
- Avoid falling into the trap of moving scams: Visit the FMCSA website and search if your moving company is listed. A legit moving company should be properly licensed and issued with a USDOT Number. Make sure their trucks are clearly labeled.
