Tips to make moving easier
- This is a perfect time to upgrade your kitchen or living room. If the walls need painting or the floor needs refurbishing, be sure to handle the chores early to make settling in easy.
- Hold a garage sale and make a donation to charity foundations nearby of stuff you don’t need any more. Sort your items and only move with what's necessary.
- Pack an overnight bag with essentials like phone chargers, snacks, a change of clothes, medication, and toiletries. This way, you will have what you need without having to open the boxes.
- Make a list of names and companies you want notified about your move. Go to your local post office to change your address and send the new address to everyone on your list.

The importance of hiring a professional moving company
- No heavy lifting. Professional movers have a team of trained experts who have years of experience in handling the heavy and delicate stuff. They know how to wrap furniture and other bulky items and load them safely into the trucks. The chances of any item getting damaged are very slim.
- You get time for other things. A move is not just packing, loading and transporting your belongings. You need to find schools for your kids, set up utilities, prep your new house and clear any outstanding debts to mention just but a few. Add packing and you will simply not have sufficient time to accomplish all that. With a professional mover, everything will be taken care of so that you can focus on the other issues.
- Movers are insured. Items break during a move and there is no way of telling if it will be that expensive TV or your couch. To be safe, professional movers provide various insurance options. The full replacement value will cost a bit higher but is worth considering; your items will be fully replaced in case of an accident.
- You will have peace of mind. When you know your move is in the hands of professionals, your mind will be at ease. Normally, you will feel under a lot of pressure with all the tasks that await you. But with movers, you don't have to do anything. They are organized and know how to deal with obstacles that may arise.
Steps to find a company you can trust
- Find out the reputation of your mover before hiring them. Talk to your friends, co-workers, family members, and neighbors to learn the good and the bad of your mover. You will also find a ton of information in the BBB database. Read what people think about your mover and how they rate the company based on their personal experience.
- The license of your company should be valid. Never hire a company that is operating illegally. Every company should have a unique number issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation. For local moves, check the rules and regulations of moving household items.
- Estimates should be given in a writing. Reliable movers send a team for an in-house survey in order to provide an accurate estimate. Quotes given over the phone without confirmation of what you own will be misleading and cannot be relied upon.
