Top 5 moving tips
- Downsize your household items. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that are past their usefulness. Decide what to keep and what you don’t need. Moving with fewer items will ease your work and reduce your moving cost.
- Start packing as soon as possible. Packing two boxes a day will greatly reduce your workload without tiring you out. Since you have plenty of time, make sure nothing important is left behind.
- Label your boxes correctly indicating the contents and the rooms where each box should be taken. This will make it easy for the movers when unloading and even easier for you when unpacking.
- Prepare for the unexpected. Pack a bag of essential items that you’ll need when you arrive at your new place. You might not be able to settle right away hence having a change of clothes, toiletries, a few utensils and snacks will help you get through the night without stress.
- Get in touch with your utility companies in advance to have your services switched to your new house. This is necessary to ensure you move into a house that’s connected with electricity, water, and gas.

Why hire a professional moving company?
- Professional services: When moving by yourself, there are things you might overlook which may have a negative effect on your move. But professional movers ensure everything is taken care of. They plan accordingly and ensure you receive the highest quality services. They will advise you on the best strategies to make your move a little easier.
- Skills and expertise: When you choose the full-service pack, professional movers will pack, load, unload and unpack your household items. They use their skills and training to pack efficiently utilizing space efficiently. They pack neatly and safely ensuring that your items get to your destination as quickly as possible.
- Budget: Hiring a professional moving company will help you plan your budget effectively. They send in their experts to evaluate your belongings and provide a quote. This way, you know exactly how much you’re going to spend hence you're able to make the necessary arrangements.
How to find the right moving company
Get everything in writing - the date of moving, the moving estimates, and the details of your move. Never sign a contract before reading the fine print. Some movers include hidden charges that you’ll only be made aware of when it’s time to pay.
Ask around from friends and co-workers who have previously moved. They will recommend a few companies that you may consider. Research on these companies to ensure they fit your preferences before hiring them.
Look up companies on the Better Business Bureau. Consumers leave positive or negative comments depending on their experience with moving companies. The reviews will help you determine which company to hire and the ones to avoid.
Check the legal documents of a moving company to ensure they are valid and up-to-date. Never hire a mover that is not licensed by the FMCSA. Interstate movers are issued with a USDOT Number which they must display on their trucks and websites. Local movers need to have permits from the states they operate in.
