Top 5 tips for a stress-free move
- Find a reputable moving company to help you relocate. Movers make moving easier since it’s their area of expertise. Have at least three moving companies give you their estimates and go for the most affordable one.
- If your moving company supplies packing materials, ask them to deliver the boxes for you to embark on the process of packing. Label your boxes for ease of identification of fragile and delicate packages.
- Visit your new house. Make sure everything is in proper condition before you move in. Check for water leakages and any electrical faults. Also, clean the house to make it easy to move into.
- Leave the packed boxes in their respective rooms. This will make it easier for the movers when loading.
- Pack important and valuable items such as your passports, birth certificates and jewelry yourself. It’s difficult to replace some of these items.

Why you need to hire a professional moving company
- Protection of your items: Moving on your own exposes your items to the risk of falling and breaking. Professional movers are trained with techniques to handle your household items with special care. You don’t have to worry about your precious antiques and framed pictures because they are in safe hands.
- Efficiency: Professional moving companies have highly skilled staff. They collaborate during packing and have the items moved within the shortest time possible. You are able to save time and money for other equally important activities.
- The right equipment: Moving bulky or heavy items is challenging and requires equipment to make the work easier. Professional movers have the appropriate tools such as furniture dollies, moving blankets, straps, and stair-roller. These essential tools make carrying heavy items easy and safe.
- Insurance: The federal government makes it mandatory for movers to provide basic insurance cover for household items. In case of any damages, a professional mover is supposed to pay $0.60 per pound, per item. This will cover part of the total cost of your belongings. To confirm the details of a moving company, visit the Licensing and Insurance Public database.
How to find a reliable mover
A reliable mover should obtain licensing by the FMCSA and be issued with a USDOT Number which should be displayed clearly on their trucks. Movers operating within the state of Florida should be licensed by the FDACS.
Check the FWMA agency to find reliable movers who operate by the set Code of Professional Ethics. The agency helps protect consumers against scandalous movers by ensuring their members undergo strict evaluation.
Check the websites of moving companies for the type of services they offer and their tariffs. Different movers offer different moving rates. You can also ask for recommendations from friends who have moved in the past. If their services are of high quality, then you can hire them with confidence.
It’s advisable to hire a moving company that is experienced. Companies that have been in the industry for a long period of time will offer better services compared to an upcoming company. Don’t compromise on the quality of services you receive from a moving company.
