Tips to help you move easier
- Packing: Packing is a time-consuming exercise and the secret is to start early. Gather sufficient packing supplies to avoid running to the stores to get more boxes or tape. Pack heavy items at the bottom and avoid overloading your boxes. Maintain the weight to a maximum of 50 pounds.
- Labeling: Label each box as soon as you finish packing. Indicate which side should face up, whether the contents are fragile and the room each box is destined for. This will make unpacking a breeze.
- Essentials: There’s a high chance you won’t finish unpacking all your items in one day hence the need to pack a separate bag with your essentials. You need to have quick access to items such as towels, bedsheets, and toiletries.
- Defrost your fridge: If you are moving your refrigerator, clean it thoroughly and let it dry at least one day before moving. This will get rid of nasty smells and prevent the growth of mildew.

Why you need a professional moving company
- If you run on a tight schedule and you need to move, hiring professionals is your best chance. They do all the work which includes packing and unpacking. This takes the burden of moving off your shoulders so you can concentrate on your business.
- Trusting your friends to help you move may lead to frustrations especially when they bail out on you the last minute. However, you can rely on the services of a professional moving company. They have a reputation to build, so they’ll make sure they show up on time and deliver on their promise. Plus, there’s a binding contract that needs to be honored.
- The good thing about hiring movers is that there are no hidden charges. Movers send their inspectors to assess and inventory your household items and come up with an estimate of the moving cost. You can verify and ask for clarifications before hiring them. You only get to pay the agreed amount without having to worry about additional charges.
How to find a reliable mover
- There are many movers out there claiming to be professionals. Get the estimates of at least three movers and compare their rates. Beware of those who bid too low because of two reasons. Either they are inexperienced, or are scammers intending to rip you off. A reliable mover provides high-quality services at affordable rates.
- Ask for references from friends or coworkers who have recently moved. This is a quick way of finding movers since you won’t go through the hassle of evaluating them. If you don’t get personal references, then associations might help. The American Moving and Storage Association started a ProMover program to help connect consumers to trustworthy movers. Moving companies must pass a strict annual background check to be certified.
- Consider hiring a company with high BBB ratings. This proves that the company upholds the best business practices and has fewer unresolved cases. You can read the reviews of potential movers on the BBB website as well.
- The FMCSA is a resourceful site that provides information about the history of moving companies. The agency requires movers to provide clients with the Know Your Rights booklet before a move. These are guidelines of what to expect from a moving company and what a moving company expects from you.
