Tips for moving with ease
- The key to a smooth move is early preparation. Get enough boxes before you start packing your items. Pack strategically with heavy items on the bottom and light items on top. Pack light to make it easy to carry the boxes when loading and unloading.
- Framed pictures, pieces of art and antiques are valuable and irreplaceable items. They need proper handling to protect them from breaking. Take them with you in your car to ensure they are safe.
- Find a pet sitter to take care of your pet on moving day; it’s wise to keep them away from all the activities of moving.
- Don’t forget to pack your necessities in separate bags. If you have kids, let them pack a few items that they’ll need to use for the first two days at your new house. Unpacking may take a while, and you need to keep items such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, flashlight, and snacks close.
- Remember to defrost your fridge and freezer at least 24 hours before moving day. This will keep mildew at bay and get rid of any foul smell.

Why hire a professional moving company?
- Resources: If you have a lot of household items, it only makes sense to hire a professional mover. They have the space to carry all your possessions and transport them at a go. They are also trained to use special tools and equipment to protect your items from falling and breaking.
- Storage facilities: If your move is urgent and you move to a smaller apartment, you’ll need a place to store your stuff. Professional movers own storage facilities that are climate controlled to ensure your items are safe and kept in good conditions. Your items will be secure until you find your ideal home.
- Efficiency: With professional movers, you don’t have to hassle for packing materials or hire people to help you pack and load. They offer all these services as one package. They’ll show up at your doorstep equipped with packing supplies and ready to give you a helping hand. They work fast and will have you settled in no time.
- Insurance: The law requires movers to provide the basic insurance cover of 60 cents per pound per item to all their customers. When you hire a professional mover, the safety of your belongings is guaranteed since you’ll be dealing with an insured company.
How to find the right moving company
- To be sure you are hiring a legitimate moving company, confirm their registration and license by visiting the FMCSA website. For a long distance move, ensure your mover has a USDOT Number.
- Check that the moving company has a physical office and contact information. Consider a local mover since you can verify their details by visiting their offices and having a one-on-one chat with their crew. Observe how their staff responds and if they have the right equipment for a move.
- Research the ratings of the moving company you are considering with the Better Business Bureau. Go for a company with high ratings and a clean history. Find out if there are any complaints filed against your moving company. You can also read the customer reviews before deciding to hire a specific mover.
