Making your move easier
Moving can be quite strenuous especially if you decide to do it yourself. However, if you decide to hire the services of movers you can save yourself a lot of trouble:
- Movers have well-trained staff who understand all the basics of making any move successful.
- Experienced movers will most likely be well acquainted with the local area, and the best access and exit routes to help you reach your destination faster and safely.
- Movers are required by federal law to provide insurance for your move thereby protecting you in the event they lose or damage your items.
- Movers have high-end equipment that help make your move smoother and faster. Some of this equipment includes hoisting straps, air ride cushions, moving dollies etc.
Helpful moving tips
- Shortlist at least four local reputable movers in Portsmouth.
- Acquaint yourself with your rights and responsibilities as a moving client.
- If packing for yourself make sure that you get the right packing material, and carefully secure all your items to reduce chances of damage. Many movers do not accept liability for damages if you pack for yourself.
- When budgeting for your move, it is important to also factor in the cost of living at the new location.
- Downsize and declutter your items so that you carry only what you will need at the new location. This helps you save on moving costs because long distance moves are charged by weight.
- Make sure you pack an essentials box that will contain all the items that you will need up until delivery of your items.
Many of the myths related to moving arise out of unhappy moving experiences amongst many clients. Below are some of the most common myths:

Hiring a professional mover is expensive
When you look at the total price on a moving estimate you might find it expensive to hire a mover. However, most people forget to take into account that hiring a mover reduces the chances of damage or loss of your items, keeps you from lifting heavy items and ultimately keeps you safe from injuries. Other clients forget that movers make your move go faster and that when you hire full moving services you do not have to spend money on packing supplies which are quite expensive. Thus, hiring movers is not expensive but a worthwhile moving investment.
- Moving is stressful. Indeed moving can be quite a stressful period if not well planned. However, if you take necessary measures such as hiring movers and planning ahead, your move is bound to be successful. If you hire movers, they help you manage all the tasks related to your move and thereby reduce or eliminate any stress.
- Movers carry everything. The federal law limits what movers can and cannot carry. It is thus very important to find out what are some of the things your mover does not carry well in advance of the move. You can check up some moving tips published by the Federal Moto Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in regards to non-allowable items.
- Insurance is comprehensive. FMCSA requires movers to provide you with insurance to protect your move. However, many movers will only provide you with a limited valuation coverage thus you can’t claim for the full value of your items in the event of damage or loss. It is therefore important to ensure that you purchase additional insurance.
