Tips to make your move easier
- Start packing as soon as you set your moving date. Pack room by room starting with the room that’s not used often. Try packing a box or two each evening, and you’ll be surprised with your progress in a few weeks.
- Pick a color to represent each room and mark the boxes with the corresponding stickers. Also, placing a large sign with the words ‘boxes through here’ will help ease the work of your movers.
- Prepare a bag to pack essential items such as toothbrushes, bed sheets, cookware and a change of clothes to help you get through the first two days at your new house. It’s advisable to use a clear plastic bag that can easily be identified and the contents be seen.
- Make arrangements to visit your new house a few days before moving in. Check if any renovations are needed especially for the floor and walls. Ensure the house is clean to make settling in fast and arranging your household items easier.

Why you need a professional moving company
- Insurance cover: By hiring a professional mover, your belongings are protected since the company is insured. You can rest assured that you’ll be reimbursed in case of any unfortunate events.
- Cost-effective: Contrary to popular belief, hiring a moving company is cheaper in the long run compared to moving on your own. Professional movers calculate the cost of moving based on facts like the weight of your items and the distance to be covered. There’s no second-guessing, and they’ll charge you a fixed bill no matter what happens along the way.
- Licensed: The FMCSA licenses and authorizes moving companies to operate in the transport industry. In case your items aren’t delivered, you can lodge a complaint and have the company traced. If you hire a random company with no credentials, it’ll be difficult to track them, and you’ll end up losing your belongings.
- Equipment: To make sure your items are not damaged during the moving process, movers use the appropriate equipment to handle them. They have the right tools to dismantle furniture that won't fit through your doorway and reassemble them at your new house. They will handle your possessions professionally ensuring they are delivered without a scratch.
How to find the best moving company
- The first step is to ask for recommendations from family members, friends or work colleagues who have recently moved. Shortlist a few companies and look for the one that meets your preferences. Finding a mover this way will save you time and effort.
- If you don’t get any recommendations, search for a moving company online. Most movers have established their online presence by creating websites where they list their services. Compare the rates of a few companies by getting their estimates. However, don’t base your decision solely on the prices, as this may be misleading.
- Visit the Better Business Bureau website to find out what people are saying about your moving company. The bureau endorses and ranks companies that consistently provide high-level services to clients.
- Make sure that the company you are hiring has a physical office where you can visit them and confirm if they have the appropriate equipment to effectively carry out a move. They should have their trucks marked with their brand name together with their contact information.
