The best house moving tips
- Use suitcases, trash bins, and duffel bags to reduce the cost of purchasing packing supplies. Suitcases with rollers are especially useful when carrying heavy items since you’ll simply roll them into the trucks.
- Leave the contents of the drawers intact and secure the drawers using tape. Just make sure that they are not too heavy. The items inside will be secure and you won’t have to empty them into boxes.
- Start packing as early as 8 weeks out. This can be a tricky process that requires strategy. Start with those items that are not used frequently such as seasonal clothes. You can invite your friends on one weekend to help with the packing.
- Purge your items before packing them. Have separate boxes labeled ‘to sell’ or ‘to donate.’ Items like furniture can be sold and the proceeds used to refurbish the bedroom or kitchen.
- Get professionals to help you move. Do your research and look for a company you can rely on. Movers are busy on weekends and it's wise to move on a weekday or mid-month.

Why you should consider hiring a professional moving company
- They protect your items: Movers offer a variety of insurance options you can choose from. They are trained to take good care of household items during a move and to deliver them in one piece. The insurance policies vary from one mover to another and it’s wise to discuss the details with your mover. This protects you from incurring losses due to damages.
- Professional packing services: If you select the full-service package offered by your moving company, you don’t have to purchase packing supplies. The movers will come with boxes, sealing tape, blankets and padding materials. They will pack your possessions including fragile items like picture frames and sculptures and deliver them to your new home intact.
- Inventory: To get accurate estimates, you need to know how much stuff you have. The only way to tell for sure is by creating an inventory of all your belongings. This is a tough task that’s better left to the professionals. They will go from one room to another listing down everything you own with clear descriptions of their conditions. The inventory is useful in calculating moving estimates and to identify lost or damaged items.
- Avoid injuries: Moving large pieces of furniture can only be possible if you let the professionals handle them. They have the resources to safely lift and carry items of any size or shape and deliver them without a scratch. Avoid a trip to the hospital by enlisting the services of a professional moving company.
Ways to find a reliable moving company
Start by confirming if their license is legit. Dealing with licensed moving companies is easy because you can access their information from the FMCSA database. Long distance movers must clearly display the USDOT Number on their trucks and websites. In-state movers must have a license from the Missouri Department of Transportation.
Go for local movers. It is safer hiring a moving company that you can visit and assess their operations, talk to their staff and check out their equipment and trucks. You can also ask around and get valuable and reliable information about the company.
The law requires a moving company to issue clients with a copy of ‘Your Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet. This is a guide to help you know what to expect during a move and contains information about the process of making claims in case of a misfortune.
