Top 5 moving tips
- Have a notebook where you record everything. These include the moving date, estimates of different companies, your moving budget and the amount of time you’ll need to accomplish the tasks. This way, you’ll be more organized and focused.
- Organize to have the items you no longer need to be removed from your home. You can hold a garage sale or have a local charity come pick up the items. This will create more space for packing and reduce your load.
- Create a flexible schedule to pack your items. Start with the items you won’t be using anytime soon such as seasonal clothes and equipment. Pack at least two boxes every day to help you reduce the workload.
- If possible, use the original packages to pack your electronics. The boxes are designed to protect your TV and other devices from breaking. Alternatively, use newspaper or soft clothes to fill the spaces left after you pack.
- Label everything correctly. Write a description of what’s inside each box on both sides and the top. Labeling not only makes it easy when unloading but also makes your unpacking organized.

Why you should hire a professional moving company
- Experience: If you are worried about moving expensive household items like TVs and sofa, you shouldn’t. Professional movers have many years of moving experience and know exactly how to handle them. They use heavy-duty wrapping materials to protect your items from any damages.
- Specialized equipment: Moving heavy and awkwardly shaped items can be very challenging and risky. Professional movers have the necessary equipment to lift and carry your belongings without breaking a sweat. They have skills to move items of any size or shape through your corridors or down the stairs. Avoid the risk of getting injured or breaking your items by hiring professionals.
- Insurance: Professional movers are insured which means you’ll be compensated in the unlikely event that any of your belongings get damaged or lost during the move. The federal government requires movers to provide basic coverage of $0.60 per pound per item. The movers offer other options, and it’s advisable to purchase additional insurance for extra protection.
Ways of finding a reliable moving company
Visit reputable sites like Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau to read the online reviews of moving companies. Customers who have moved are always more than willing to share their experience by leaving positive or negative comments about a moving company. Avoid a company that has too many negative reviews.
Ask your friends, co-workers or family members who have recently moved to recommend a moving company. Use these suggestions to make a list of about 3-5 companies so that you do further research before making a decision.
Use the internet to search for moving companies that provide high quality moving services. Most movers have websites where they advertise their services. Check what they offer and compare their rates by getting the estimates. Make sure they have provided their contact information and they have a physical office.
If you are moving from one state to another, ask your mover to provide you with the USDOT Number. The 11-digit number is issued by the FMCSA which is also responsible for registering and licensing companies operating in the transport industry.
