Tips to ease your move
- Get plenty of boxes of different sizes from local stores. Make sure they are brand new and have strong edges. You’ll also need other packing materials such as tape, bubble wrap, and newspaper.
- Start packing early. The process of packing is time-consuming and the earlier you start, the better. Try packing a box or two per day and have a designated room to place them to get them out of your way.
- When you finish packing your stuff, secure your boxes with sealing tape. Label each box correctly indicating its contents and which room it belongs to. This makes it easier when unloading and unpacking at your new house.
- Do not pack combustibles, explosives or flammables. Safety regulations must be observed, and movers are not allowed to transport any items that pose a safety risk.
- Make a point of visiting your new house before moving in to check if any repairs are needed. Make arrangements to have your internet and other utilities set up. You don’t want to move to a house without water or electricity.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company
- Expertise. The crew of a professional moving company is expertly trained to handle any situation that may arise during a moving process. They do thorough research of the locality to establish the safest neighborhoods and routes to dispatch your household items. They strive to ensure your items are delivered without delay.
- Insurance. If you invite your friends or family to help you move and you TV drops and breaks, this is on you. The safety of your household items is of paramount importance to movers, and they will do their best to ensure your belongings get to their destination in one piece. You can rest assured that your items are protected, and in case of an accident, you’ll receive compensation.
- Equipment. A professional moving company comes with the right equipment and tools to make your move easier. They use dollies, ramps, and hoisting straps to carry and load your items safely into their specially built trucks. They can handle bulky and heavy items with ease and deliver them without a scratch.
Tips for finding the best moving company
Many moving companies have flooded the market making it difficult to determine a reliable one. These tips will help you find a trustworthy moving company to handle your move:
- Make sure they are registered and licensed by the FMCSA. Interstate movers should have a valid USDOT Number while intrastate movers should have proper licensing from the Illinois Commerce Commission.
- Check if the Better Business Bureau has accredited the moving company you are interested in. This means that it has met their strict high standards and can be trusted to deliver high-quality services. You can also read the reviews and ratings of consumers from the BBB website. Avoid companies with many complaints.
- Consider hiring a company certified by the American Moving and Storage Association. ProMover members are distinguished as reputable, reliable and honest. You'll also be protected from falling into the hands of rogue operators.
- Avoid a moving company that demands large deposits before the actual move. You are only required to pay when your items have been delivered to your doorstep. If you pay before a move, you won’t have control of the move.
