Top 5 moving tips
- Get rid of all items you haven’t used in more than six months. Use the various channels such as eBay or Craigslist to sell your items. Any items that can’t be sold can be donated or given away to friends.
- Label your boxes correctly as soon as you finish packing to avoid confusion. This way, your movers will have an easy time unpacking and arranging the items in your new house.
- If your moving company creates an inventory of your items, request a copy for your own records. The list will help you establish if any of your items are missing.
- Change your address at the local post office or online through the USPS portal. Notify your business contacts, banks and close friends of the change so that you continue receiving important notifications.
- If you are moving your pet, ask if the moving company provides pet transport. Pets need special care, especially if being transported over a long distance. Make sure the conditions are conducive to your pet and that you have all the documentation ready.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company
- Experience: The staff of a professional moving company has been moving house for many years hence mastering the art. They are ready to deal with any problems that could crop up during the move. With their training and skills, you can rest assured that your items will be delivered to your new place safely.
- Safety and security: When you hire a professional moving company, they come equipped with the appropriate tools that will simplify your move. You’ll avoid the stress and risk of heavy lifting since the movers use special equipment to lift and carry your belongings when loading and unloading them.
- Time-saving: To effectively carry out a move, you’ll have to take time off from work so that you organize how to transport your possessions. But with professional movers, your work schedule won’t be interrupted. They will take care of your moving plans and you can focus on your work.
- Reduce stress: Professional movers will handle everything from packing to loading to unloading your household items. You don’t have to ask for help from your friends. The movers are capable of planning and executing your moving process without you lifting a finger.
How to find a reliable moving company
A reliable mover should provide moving insurance for your belongings. Items get damaged during a move and hiring an insured moving company will guarantee the safety of your items. Verify the insurance status of your moving company with the Licensing and Insurance Public.
Be sure to ask if the moving company you intend to hire is well equipped to carry out the move comfortably. A local company will be easy to investigate since you can visit them and assess their equipment and trucks. Don’t settle for less. Your items are valuable and you have to be certain you’re hiring the right moving company.
Check if your moving company has complied with the federal and state regulations. Ask to be provided with their license for verification purposes. The FMCSA licenses moving companies and issues a specific 11-digit number that permits long distance movers to cross the border lines. If it’s a move across the city, ask if the mover has a valid license from the Indiana Department of Revenue.
