Tips to ease your move
- Source for plenty of boxes to pack your belongings. Make sure the boxes are free of any chemicals before you start using them. Start packing items that you don’t use frequently and make sure everything fits in a box before sealing it properly.
- When labeling the boxes, write a description of what’s inside and the rooms where each box should be placed. Put the labels on the sides and top of the boxes so that you can easily know the contents even when they are stacked.
- Use a small plastic bag for screws and bolts from dismantled furniture and stick the bag to its relevant piece of furniture. This will save you the headache of rummaging through the boxes looking for them.
- Make sure you have lightbulbs at your new house. Trying to locate a shop in a new place will be difficult.
- When you arrive in your new house, flatten out some card boxes to protect your floor from getting scratched when arranging furniture. Remove them once you have finished moving your furniture.

3 reasons why you need a professional moving company
- Movers are trained with techniques to pack fast while taking care of your stuff. They will load and unload your belongings and have you settled in no time. The movers have the skills to handle fragile items without breaking them.
- Protection of your belongings. Movers make sure your household items are protected by providing various coverage options. You can discuss the best option that you can afford, but they are mandated to cover $0.60 per pound per item. If you have valuable items, you may opt to purchase additional insurance cover for extra protection.
- If you are moving across the states, the cost of hiring a truck, moving equipment, paying for a motel and eating out will be very high. Plus, you’ll miss out on work, and this will impact you negatively. All this can, however, be avoided if you hire a professional moving company to handle your move.
How to find a reputable moving company
Read online reviews of the company by visiting the Better Business Bureau website. Consumers leave comments depending on their experience with a moving company. A company with many negative reviews shows lack of commitment and trust.
Look for a moving company with reasonable rates. After screening a few moving companies, get their quotes and go for one that’s affordable. Some movers charge extremely low or high prices, and you need to beware of such companies.
A reliable mover is required to provide you with a copy of ‘Your Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet. This will inform you on what to expect before, during and after a move.
Make sure the company you are interested in is properly licensed by the FMCSA. If operating interstate, the mover should have a USDOT Number. If it’s a move within the state, they should be licensed by the Illinois Commerce Commission.
Consider hiring a local mover. Make arrangements to visit their facility and ask as many questions as possible. Check out the kind of services they offer and how well-trained their workers are. Find out if they provide extra measures to protect fragile items and if they have storage facilities.
