Easy packing and moving tips
- Pack early: Houses contain years’ worth of household items that need careful packing and handling. Identify what you really need and what you can do away with. Items that you intend to donate should be packed separately. You could also hold a garage sale and use the proceeds to renovate your kitchen.
- Who needs to know you're moving: Before you move, you should call your doctors, dentists, the bank, close friends and family and alert them. Update them with your new contact information so that they can reach easily.
- Service appliances: Arrange to have major appliances serviced and cleaned before moving out. The fridge needs to be wiped dry since moisture will allow growth of mildew. Drain oil and petrol from machines for ease of movement.
- Items movers won't move: Find out from the movers what items they are not allowed to move. These include aerosols, paint, nail polish, guns, and ammunition. If possible, give them away or use them up prior to moving.

The benefits of using a professional moving company
- They prevent damages. Instead of risking breaking or scratching your furniture, it is safer to leave it to the professionals. They use blankets to cover the furniture not only to prevent dents but also the dust from the moving truck from settling onto the furniture. Delicate items like mirrors will be packed safely and delivered in one piece.
- Hiring a professional moving company guarantees the safety of your belongings. Anything that gets damaged while in their hands is their responsibility and they have an obligation to reimburse the full value. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your losses will be greatly minimized.
- Secure storage units. Your new house might be smaller or maybe you want your items moved while you finish up stuff at work. Having a professional moving company makes it easy since most of them have storage facilities. Your items will be kept in a safe place under tight security until you are ready to collect them.
- They are experienced. For a move to be successful, you need movers who have been in the business long enough. They have the resources to carry out a move without complications. The movers know how to deal with any obstacle that may arise along the way. You won't experience any difficulties if you let professional movers take over.
Guide to finding a reliable moving company
Be sure your mover has an address and contact information. Check out their premises to establish whether they have what it takes to complete a move. Make sure the services they offer covers the area you're relocating to and that they have a registered company name.
Give the movers sufficient information to avoid complications later. For instance, if you live on the 20th floor and you forgot to mention it, they will not come with the equipment they need. This also prevents movers from charging more than what you agreed on.
Only go for a licensed moving company. The FMCSA issues a USDOT Number to long distance movers while local movers should obtain an operating license from the North Carolina Utilities Commission. This gives you confidence that your move is in good hands.
