Tips for moving house with ease
- Pack a ‘survival kit’ to make the first night at your new house less stressful. You probably won't be able to start unpacking immediately and need to have essential items within easy reach. Avoid the headache of digging through dozens of boxes looking for a toothbrush!
- Gather enough packing boxes. Acquire them from moving companies in your locality or in liquor stores. Get boxes of different sizes to accommodate the different items you own. Pack heavy items in small boxes and light items in large boxes.
- Find a babysitter or pet sitter to take care of your kids and pets on the big day. It's going to be a busy day for you and the movers need your full attention. Having kids or pets around will slow you and the movers down.
- To avoid confusion when unpacking, don’t put items from different rooms in the same boxes. Pack room by room and make sure the boxes are labeled correctly. Indicate what each box contains and where it should be placed.
The importance of hiring a professional moving company
- They are well equipped. The risks of personal injuries are high especially in a DIY move. Lack of strength, skills, and expertise leave you vulnerable. To avoid bruises, broken bones or strained muscles, you should really consider enlisting the services of a professional moving company. They have the appropriate equipment to safely handle heavy and delicate items.
- Convenience. Professional movers have the techniques to pack and arrange your items in the truck efficiently and have them transported within a short time. They use high standard materials like protective blankets to protect your items and the walls from getting damaged.
- Friendly staff. The staff of a professional moving company is highly experienced from years of moving houses. They will give you expert advice and guide you through the moving process. They are friendly and ready to help you tackle any issues you might have during the move.
- Cost-effective. Contrary to what people think, hiring a mover may actually be more affordable than moving on your own. If you consider the cost of purchasing packing supplies, hiring a truck and people to help you load, plus fueling the truck and paying for insurance, you realize you could spend more compared to hiring a mover.

Tips to help you find the right moving company
Research on several moving companies online, to establish what their reputation and track record look like. Check the Better Business Bureau for complaints and ratings. Movers that are BBB accredited provide high level services and look after the welfare of their clients.
Movers that don’t have a physical office might not be operating a legit business. Make sure you verify the address of your moving company before hiring. The company’s address should be listed under the company names. Additionally, the company vehicles should be marked with their brand name and USDOT Number.
Beware of companies asking for large deposits before the move. Reputable movers request for payment only after delivering your belongings. You risk losing your items and money if you pay before the move even commences. Additionally, you're not sure if the items will be intact when they are delivered.
Only work with insured moving companies. You're entrusting your possessions with strangers and you want a company you can trust. A reputable mover offers various insurance options for you to choose from. This way you'll be cushioned from incurring losses in case of damages.
