Top 5 tips to ease your move
- Use large boxes for lighter items like beddings and smaller boxes for heavy items such as books. This will keep the weight of the boxes manageable hence carrying them will be easy.
- Use the right packing materials for your stuff. The boxes should be strong and brand new to keep your items from falling when moving them. Use high-quality sealing tape, markers, bubble wrap and packing paper.
- Collect all the screws, nuts and bolts from disassembled furniture and put them in Ziploc bags. Stick the bags on the pieces of furniture they belong to for ease during re-assembly. Similarly, pack any other small items in the Ziploc bags so that you don’t lose them.
- If possible pack electronic devices and appliances in their original boxes. They are specially designed to protect the items when being moved around. Alternatively, cushion them properly using packing paper or soft clothes.
- Pack your valuables and important documents in separate bags. Do the packing yourself for security reasons.
The importance of hiring a professional moving company
- Inventory: Imagine going through every room to write down everything you own. Not only is the process tedious but stressful as well. Leave it to the professional movers; they are trained for this kind of work.
- They are transparent: When moving, companies are obligated to provide you with a written estimate of how much your move is likely to cost. Professional movers send their experts to assess what you own so that they can give a more accurate estimate. They are transparent and you don’t have to worry about hidden costs.
- You'll avoid damages: In a DIY move, you're likely to break some items due to lack of skills and experience. This will be a loss on your side and will add to the stress you already have. By hiring professional movers, the risk of breakages or damages is greatly reduced. Additionally, they provide insurance cover which means you will be compensated for any loss.
- Storage services: If you need a place to store your items temporarily, professional movers are your best option. Their storage facilities are climate controlled to keep your items in safe conditions. With a 24-hour surveillance system, you're guaranteed of the security of your belongings.

Ways to find the best moving company
Be sure you're working with the actual mover. Brokers are not regulated by the same rules as moving companies hence you might be disadvantaged. Check out the company in advance to confirm their name is registered with the FMCSA.
Ask for recommendations and references from friends, co-workers, and neighbors who have recently moved. Write down the suggested companies and check out their reputation on the trusted Better Business Bureau website. Working with a well-known mover gives you confidence that they will handle your items properly and deliver them within the deadline.
Get everything in writing. Read the fine print carefully before signing any contract. Don’t sign any blank documents for your safety. If there's any part that doesn’t seem clear, don’t hesitate to ask for clarifications. Remember, the safety of your items should always come first, so follow your instincts when looking for reliable movers.
Give preference to ProMover members. These are companies that have been vetted and their track records checked. The initiative by AMSA aims at keeping consumers from falling into the hands of rogue operators.
