Top 5 tips for moving with ease
- Find a babysitter to take care of your kids on moving day. This is to keep them safe and avoid distractions. The movers will need your full attention and having kids around will slow you down.
- Don’t pack perishables. You risk damaging your other items. Instead, consider donating to charity homes or give the food to your family or friends.
- Pick a moving date. Weekends are busy for most movers, and the prices are generally high. Consider moving between Tuesday and Thursday when there's less traffic, and the movers less busy. The rates are low, and you can even negotiate further to get a discounted price.
- Clean the new house before moving in. It’s easier to clean without all the boxes lying around. Also, check if any repairs or renovations need to be done. Prepping the house makes settling in fast and easy.
- Label your boxes as soon as you finish packing to avoid confusion. Indicate the contents of each box and the rooms they should be placed in. This will make unpacking easier since the boxes will be right where you want them.
Why you should consider a professional moving company
Safety of your stuff
The staff of a professional moving company has the expertise and skills to deliver your household items safely to your destination. They use the right wrapping materials to protect fragile items like paintings from getting damaged during a move. Your items are insured which means you get compensation for any damage or loss during the move.
Anything can happen during a move. Moving heavy items is especially risky if you lack the proper skills and equipment. Professional movers are trained to lift and carry items of any size and safely load them into the trucks. They take precaution to ensure the safety of the team.
With professional movers, you either pay hourly if it’s a local move, or a fixed bill calculated based on what you own and the distance if it’s a long distance move. There are no hidden expenses. They will fit your items into the right truck size and transport them in one trip saving you the cost of making multiple trips if you hired a smaller truck.
You can always trust professional movers to deliver on their promises. When you sign an agreement, you can be assured that the movers will honor it and show up on moving day. Unlike your friends who have other family or work obligations, professional movers are committed to making your move a success.

Ways to find a reputable moving company
Friends and family members who have moved in the past can offer valuable information regarding which moving company offers great moving services. Also, real estate agents deal with movers on a daily basis and know the good and the bad. Shortlist a few companies from the suggestions and chose one that suits you best.
Make sure your moving company is duly licensed. If you're moving within the state, your mover should have a license from the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities. If you're moving out-of-state, check the company’s credentials with the FMCSA.
Check the reputation of your mover with the Better Business Bureau. Customers file complaints against movers who failed to deliver on their promises. Movers with numerous complaints filed against them show lack of responsibility and should be avoided. Reputable movers strive to respond to and resolve issues fast.
