Top 5 tips for moving with ease
- Make early preparations. The moving process needs careful planning and implementation. The key is to have a list of tasks you want carried out before moving day. List down the tasks in order of priority and stick to the list. This way you'll be able to achieve more within a short time.
- Gather important documents and pack them in a folder or a separate bag. These include passports, birth certificates, financial and medical records. Keep the bag with you throughout the journey to ensure safety.
- Visit the new area a few days before moving to familiarize yourself with the surroundings. Talk to neighbors and find out the favorite spots for family weekends and picnics. Also, check out the local shops and look for a good school for your kids.
- Purge your items. Put items that you don’t need in separate boxes. Anything you haven’t used for more than six months should be disposed of. Moving with the necessary items will reduce your load and make your move easy to manage.
- Change your address at least 4 weeks before moving. Visit the local post office or fill out a Change of Address form online. Remember to notify your bank, business associates, close friends and family and give them the new address.

Reasons to hire a professional moving company
- Protection of your items: Professional movers aim at providing a damage-free move. They will protect your items by handling them carefully from your current home to your new house. They are required by law to offer the basic cover of $0.60 per pound per item. You can opt for the full replacement value if you need additional protection.
- Storage services: You can store your items temporarily while you await the completion of your house or if you want your items moved before you. Professional movers offer secure storage facilities for your household items with flexible payment options. The items are kept in climate controlled rooms for a period of your choosing.
- Professional packing services: Professional movers provide the packing services you need. They come with high-quality packing materials including boxes, blankets and bubble wrap. Your items will be packed carefully and delivered intact. Delicate stuff such as antiques, sculptures, and paintings will be handled professionally and you don’t have to worry about their safety.
- Time saver: When moving on your own, there are many things you have to take care of. This will force you to take time off work. But with a professional moving company, everything is planned and organized by experts. The movers will manage your move from packing to transporting your items and unpacking them. This gives you plenty of time to handle the other matters.
Steps to find a reliable moving company
The word of mouth from friends, family, and co-workers is valuable since you'll be able to find a mover quickly. Reputable movers will have references you can contact to inquire about their services. Movers strive to maintain high quality services hence getting as much information about them will be really useful in decision making.
Ensure your mover is operating legally. Ask for their credentials to confirm this. A reliable mover adheres to federal and state regulations. Check if they have a valid USDOT Number for long distance movers or if they have a license from the Missouri Department of Transportation for local movers.
Check the online reviews of your moving company through a trusted review site like the Better Business Bureau. The aim is to find out if your mover has any complaints filed against it and how they were resolved. Avoid movers with numerous complaints.
