5 tips to make house moving easy
- Notify your utility companies of your intentions to move. This allows the companies to discontinue the services at your current home and reconnect them at your new house. This ensures you move into a house that’s connected with electricity, gas, and water.
- Pets react differently to a change in environment. Keeping them at a friend’s or family member’s house will give you ample time to make all the preparations including arranging your new house with ease. You can then pick them up later.
- Packing can take a lot of time to complete if you're doing it alone. A little help from your friends will go a long way in reducing the workload. Invite them during the weekend when most of them are free.
- Pack a survival kit with necessities you’ll need to use the first night at your new house. The items to pack include a few utensils, a change of clothes, beddings, toiletries and snacks.
- Valuable items such as jewelry and antiques should be packed separately. If you’re driving, it's best you move with them in your car. These are highly valuable items, and you wouldn’t want anything happening to them.
Why you need a professional moving company
- They are knowledgeable: Having professionals handle your move ensures your items get to their destination in one piece. They know how to pack even the most delicate items. They research your area to find the safest neighborhood and route to use to dispatch your belongings. Your mind will be at ease knowing that your items are in safe hands.
- The right tools: If there’s any furniture that needs dismantling, you don’t have to worry about it. Professional movers have the right tools for the job. They use dollies, ramps and hoisting straps to lift and carry heavy items with ease. They also use heavy duty padding materials to protect your precious items from damage.
- Time management: When you go the DIY way, you have to do everything by yourself. This can take a lot of time to complete. However, professional movers use their skills and techniques to take care of the moving process from packing to loading to unloading. This saves lots of time.
- Liability: Most professional movers are insured. This means your items are protected, and you’re confident of compensation in case of any damages or loss during the move. Movers put the safety of your belongings first and will strive to make sure they are delivered without a scratch.

Ways to find the best moving company
Compare the moving rates of multiple movers. This will let you choose the most affordable one. While the prices may determine the company to pick, you need to consider the quality of services as well. You want the best for your items hence you have to choose a mover wisely.
Check if your mover is operating legally. Moving companies are registered and licensed by the FMCSA. If it’s an interstate move, make sure they have a valid USDOT Number. If it’s a local move, the mover needs to be registered by the Louisiana Public Service Commission.
Online reviews will give you a clearer picture of the company you’re dealing with. A reputable mover has fewer complaints which are always resolved on time. Angie’s List is a reliable site where you can find genuine reviews from past customers.
