The best tips to ease the stress of moving
- Empty and clean your appliances a few days before moving out. You need to defrost your refrigerator to prevent melting ice from damaging other items. Keep the doors open for the remaining days to keep out any bad smell.
- Fill nail holes in your walls using a white bar soap or toothpaste. Rub the soap over the hole and apply a small amount of paint. The walls will be as good as new.
- Save on the expense of purchasing boxes by using what you have around the house. Suitcases, laundry baskets, and bins will be handy. The suitcases are especially useful when carrying heavy items since you can easily roll them into the trucks.
- Find out from your mover the things they won’t move. Hazardous materials like paint thinners, ammunition, gasoline and aerosol sprays cannot be transported due to safety concerns.
- Find a reliable mover to help you shift your household items. Pick a date that falls in the middle of the week or month when there are few people moving. You can get discounted prices and there’s less traffic.
Why hire a professional moving company?
- Inventory: This task is laborious and time-consuming. However, it’s the only way to confirm if everything was delivered to your new home. Professional movers have specialists who will take inventory of your items within minutes. With the list, you can tell which items were delivered in good condition.
- Estimates. Professional movers offer free moving quotes. They usually send experts to survey your household in order to come up with an accurate estimate. This will help you plan your budget effectively since you know how much you’ll be spending on your move.
- Time management: If you’re working and you don't have time to manage your move, then hiring movers is your best option. This is their area of expertise and they know tricks to complete your move fast. By taking over, they give you time to deal with the other aspects of your move.
- Convenience: When you hire a professional moving company, you get the services as a package. Full-service includes packing and unpacking which means you won’t be involved in any of the physical tasks. They have appropriate tools which help them expedite the moving process. Everyone will be safe and your move will be seamless.

Ways to find a reputable moving company
Check the company history with the FMCSA. Apart from registering and licensing moving companies, the government agency keeps records of movers in their database. It provides a platform for consumers to lodge complaints against moving companies that didn’t live up to their promises. Check if your mover is listed in the complaints section for you to make an informed decision.
Give preference to members of the American Moving and Storage Association. Through their ProMover program, AMSA has eliminated rogue movers hence protecting the consumers from fraudsters. Members can only be certified after passing a rigorous vetting process to ascertain their legitimacy.
For your safety, only work with an insured moving company whose details can be verified in the Licensing and Insurance Public database. The government requires moving companies to provide the basic cover of $0.60 per pound per item. This means that in case of damage, you’ll be compensated 60 cents multiplied by the weight of your item. For extra protection, it’s advisable to purchase additional insurance.
