Top tips for moving house
- Visit your new place and make sure everything is set. Make arrangements to have electricity, water, internet and other utilities set up before you move in. Also make a point of touring the neighborhood to find where the shops, restaurants, medical centers, and police station are located. You never know when you might need them.
- Back up your financial and personal documents before you move. You can do this manually or scan them and store them on cloud. In case your computer gets damaged or stolen during the move, you can retrieve your files safely.
- Review the parking options for the trucks carrying your household items. Make reservations early if possible to avoid inconveniences on moving day.
- Pack a ‘survival kit’ containing basic items like pajamas, cookware, a few outfits, toiletries and snacks among other essential items. You’ll save yourself the headache of going through every box to find a phone charger.

Why you need a professional moving company
- Minimize damages: Household items are often damaged when being moved from one place to another. By hiring a professional moving company, this risk can be avoided. They are well trained to handle your items and will deliver them in one piece. Besides, they provide insurance cover to protect you from incurring losses in case of damages to your items.
- Financial control: When moving on your own, you have to purchase packing supplies, hire a truck and moving equipment. These will cost you more in the long run. On the other hand, hiring a professional moving company will save you time and money since you’ll only pay one bill. They will give you an estimate based on facts such as distance and weight of your stuff. This will help you plan your finances more effectively.
- Peace of mind: With a professional moving company by your side, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of moving. They’ll organize and plan everything involving packing, loading, and unloading. With this stress out of the way, you can focus on other things like finding the best school for your kids.
- Efficiency: Professional movers are good at packing your household items. What could’ve taken you weeks may take them a day or two! They know how to utilize space when packing and loading your items into the trucks. They collaborate when performing their tasks and will have you settled quickly.
Tips for finding a trustworthy moving company
Ask for recommendations from friends and co-workers. At least one of them will have moved recently and the information they provide may save you from vetting multiple moving companies from the internet.
Confirm if the company you intend to hire has been licensed by the FMCSA. Dealing with unlicensed movers is risky since there’s no way of tracking them in case they fail to deliver your possessions. Interstate movers must have a USDOT Number while in-state movers should have a valid license from the Indiana Department of Revenue.
Give preference to movers affiliated with industrial associations. Hiring a member certified by the American Moving and Storage Association is a guarantee that you’ll receive excellent moving services. The association protects consumers from fraudsters by ensuring their members have complied with federal rules and uphold the best business practices.
