Top tips to relocate with ease
- Hazardous materials: If you have in your possession items that pose a public safety concern, find a way to dispose of them safely. These include combustibles like aerosol sprays, paint thinner, and gasoline etc.
- Prep your new home: Create time to visit your new house a few weeks before moving in. Check if the house needs any repairs or renovations especially on the walls and floors. This is also a great time to upgrade your kitchen by installing new appliances.
- Packing: To pack with ease, make sure you have the necessary packing materials such as boxes, sealing tape, and markers. This way you'll avoid stopping half-way through the packing process to rush for more supplies.
- Create a schedule: List down important things you must accomplish before moving day. Getting your kid’s school records, setting an appointment with your mover, transferring your license among others need to be completed as soon as possible. Working with a flexible schedule will keep you focused and organized.

The importance of hiring a professional moving company
- The best thing about hiring a professional moving company is honesty. When calculating your moving estimates, the movers put into consideration factors like the size of your move or the distance to be covered. They take you through the steps and will answer any questions you have. They don’t charge extra and will discuss any special services you might want.
- Insurance is mandatory during a move. Every mover is required to provide the minimum liability of $0.60 per pound per item for any damages incurred while the items are in their hands. This cushions you against replacing or repairing damaged items. However, it's recommended to purchase additional insurance for extra protection.
- Storage services. Let's say your house is not move-in ready and you require a place to store your items while you await the completion of your house. A professional moving company will provide you secure and safe storage facilities for you to keep your items on a short or long term arrangement.
- Movers are economical. The expenses involved in moving can exceed the budget allocation you had initially set. Since you don’t have a good grasp of how the moving process works, you are bound to omit some important factors that may lead to extra costs. But with a moving company, you only pay a fixed amount after delivery of your items.
How to find the best moving company
Compile a list of movers and research on them. Look out for; types of services, the moving rates, flexibility and availability of the movers. Make a comparison of what you’ve gathered so far and strike off any mover that doesn’t fit your preferences. Do this until you have the right moving company.
It's crucial to work with a licensed moving company. Apart from the safety of your belongings, you'll have an easy time tracking them down in case they disappear with your items. If it’s a local move, check if the mover has a permit from the Minnesota Department of Transportation. If it’s a long distance move, make sure they have a valid USDOT and MC Number.
Check with the MTSA if your mover is a registered member. To be certified, companies must follow a strict set of regulations set by the association. The movers have to pass a rigorous vetting process and use equipment of high standards when handling household items.
