Top house moving tips
- Transfer utilities: Contact your service providers a few weeks before moving out to arrange when to disconnect your services. If you're moving out-of-state, you might have to look for service providers in the new city. Otherwise, have your utilities switched over to your new address in advance.
- Pack a first-night kit: After the long journey, it's probably not possible to start unpacking immediately you arrive at your new house. Thus, you need to pack a few essentials separately to help you get through the night without stress. Items like toothbrushes, chargers, a change of clothes, pajamas, drinks, and snacks will come in handy.
- Source for boxes: Gather plenty of boxes for packing your household items. The boxes should be brand new and sturdy. You can find them in liquor stores or bookstores in your locality. Additionally, you need sealing tape, marker pens, labels and bubble wrap.
- Valuables: Pack valuable items including documents yourself. Put necklaces in egg cartons to prevent them from tangling and knotting. Keep the box or bag with you to ensure the safety of your most cherished possessions.

The importance of hiring a professional moving company
- Moving large and awkwardly shaped household items can be tricky especially if you lack the appropriate equipment. Since you can’t afford to purchase or hire all of them, it's only wise to enlist the services of a professional moving company. They are trained to carry items of any size or shape safely through tight spaces without causing damages.
- Peace of mind. If you have fragile items such as antiques, paintings or sculptures, you don’t have to worry about their safety. Professional movers will take good care of them and deliver them in one piece. They handle everything professionally and you can rest easy knowing that your belongings are in safe hands.
- Professional movers provide storage facilities for your possessions. Your items will be stored in a vault-like structure which is safe and secure. So, if you want to store your items temporarily while you look for an ideal house, the movers have your back.
- Affordable services. The cost of moving is the reason most people want to move on their own. There’s a misconception that hiring movers is expensive. On the contrary, you actually save a lot if you let professional movers help you. They are trained, reliable and will do the packing and heavy lifting for you. You don’t have to invest a lot of time and money planning your move since the movers will have everything in place.
Ways to find a trustworthy mover
Ask for references from the mover you are considering. Get their contacts and talk to them to learn more about their moving experience. Reputable movers have confidence in their services and will gladly give you the contacts.
Check the legal documents to ensure you’re dealing with a legitimate moving company. Interstate movers are required to have a USDOT Number while in-state movers must have a valid license from the Missouri Department of Transportation. Never work with unlicensed moving companies.
To be safe, make sure to ask if your mover is insured and offers worker’s compensation. This means that if anyone gets hurt or your belongings get damaged, you are covered. They will be liable for reimbursing you up to the value of your insurance policy.
