5 awesome moving hacks
- Make an early start: Take time to go through every room and start packing non-essential items. Any items that are not used anymore should be discarded to give room for relevant items. You may opt to hold a yard sale to sell these items.
- Get plenty of boxes: Don’t just buy any boxes. Your items are valuable hence deserve to be packed in brand new boxes with firm edges. Moving companies provide packing boxes designed to carry delicate items. Gather as many as possible to avoid heading back to purchase more.
- Pack a ‘first-night’ box: Essential items like clothes, toiletries, medications, snacks and a few utensils should be packed separately in easy-to-identify bags or boxes. Make sure you can easily access the bags by setting them aside during loading.
- Screws and bolts: Disassemble your furniture in advance and keep the screws, nuts, and bolts in plastic bags. Label the bags and attach them to the pieces of furniture they belong to. This way, you won't have a hard time finding them when reassembling the furniture.
- Hire a babysitter: If you have younger kids, find someone to take care of them on moving day. Kids love playing around and with boxes and other stuff all over the place, it's not a safe environment for them.

Steps to find a trustworthy moving company
Search for moving companies online. The American Moving and Storage Association gives you access to a list of certified movers where you can choose one near you. Simply state where you're relocating from/to and the size of your move and you'll have more than three options to choose from.
Conduct research on the moving company that interests you to find out how long they have been in business and their level of professionalism. You want a company that will move your belongings without complications or delays. Select a mover with more than five years’ experience in the business.
A reputable mover is required to issue you a copy of ‘Consumer Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet before the move. The book is a guide to what you should expect from your movers and what to do in the event that something goes wrong during the move.
