How to make your move successful using 4 simple tips
Organization: Moving requires expertise, planning and execution. You need to plan the order of activities. Start by scheduling a moving date. Follow up by having a walk-through with the company representative. Have a packing date and finally a moving day. When one is done successfully, the other follows effortlessly.
Budget: Make a list of your expenses. After you are handed a moving estimate by the company, start reducing unnecessary costs. A huge percentage of the cost charged comes from the weight. Reduce the load. Begin by purging items you no longer need. Use your car to move some clothes and personal items. High value items also need additional insurance.
Buy reused boxes from local stores. Ask friends for help when packing and unpacking. Pad delicate items to avoid loss while in transit.
Communication: When conducting a walk-through ask all the questions you have. Establish everything is clear before signing the contract. Give them all contact details including phone numbers and email.
Keep your movers in the loop when moving. Stay in the vicinity when movers are loading your items. They should also know where to find you easily in case you go out for a while. Inform them of any new changes you need implemented.
Request them to keep you updated on their movement and inform you when they arrive.
Packing: Pack items in the boxes. Arrange the items in each box to ensure no space is left. Use boxes of similar color to pack items from a common room. Color coding helps when unpacking. Label the boxes with the number of items and rooms they came from. Mark boxes with fragile items in huge letters.
Pack an overnight bag that will help you adjust to your environs quickly. It should contain; small electronics, fresh clothes, valuables and toiletries.
How to find the best moving company
A reliable moving company should have a USDOT number. This government department licenses all transporters. AMSA is a body that registers and regulates all moving companies in over 35 states of the country. It has a voluntary membership.
