Why you need a moving company for a long distance move
- Fast and safe packing: The items are padded with pillows and stuffed animals. Utensils are packed vertically in a box, wrapped with newspapers. Very delicate items like glassware and feeble plastic are wrapped with bubble wrap and blankets. They are packed closely and strapped to ensure there is no movement between them. Large items like couches and cabinets are dismantled and moved in bits. They are covered in plastic sheets to prevent scratches from walls. Movers routinely handle packing and hence they work faster and are more efficient. This is further enhanced by use of advanced equipment and masterly training.
- Professional inventory: Moving companies take an inventory of all moving items when conducting the walk-through. They pack the items smartly and label all the boxes. It makes it easier when unpacking; you can locate an item in seconds. Creating an inventory also helps you know the space your items will occupy in the new house. The trucks have real-time satellite tracking hence nothing gets lost in transit.
- Timely delivery: Moving companies pride themselves in working faster than your friends could. They have teams of competently trained employees who are faster and stronger. They can endure the demanding process due to regular physical exercise. Heavy items like refrigerators and pool tables are moved using machines. Satellite navigation ensures the trucks can transport heavy loads at fair speeds while avoiding congested routes.

Make your move effortless in five steps
- Engage a reliable moving company and settle for a date that is convenient for both parties. There should be ample time to accommodate any changes or circumstances that may arise.
- Items that are not needed any more use up the limited space and strain your budget. Donate them to Goodwill. This gives you hauling efficiency.
- Pack the items using a proven system. Begin by dismantling the large furniture and packing rarely used items. Get the best packing tips from U-Haul customer moving forum.
- Write your inventory as the movers also prepare theirs. Take stock of all items packed and loaded. Make a comparison of the inventories. It’s crucial in case of compensation.
- Scope the new area before moving in. Make friends and learn the rules of the estate. You may unintentionally step on toes. It is important to be in good terms with new neighbors.
