Tips on how to ease your move
Plan early and research: Prepare months ahead for the move to flow smoothly. Begin by asking for recommendations for the best movers around South San Francisco. Do online searches on sites such as Mymovingreviews.com to check on customer feedback and gauge company service delivery.
Use the United States Department of Transport (USDOT), California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) to countercheck on the registration, regulation and licensing of the moving company.
Budget: Inquire online on the cost of moving from several companies. Ask for online quotes. Mover charges are based on load, weight, value, distance covered and city crossed. The heavier the load the higher the charges, therefore, sell, or donate unnecessary items. Pricey items are charged higher due to handling costs, and insurance. Compare all costs charged, discounts given, and additional incentives, use these to choose the mover that favors your terms.

On the moving day
- Use an inventory when packing your goods. Pack one room completely and then move to the next. Place all items from one room in a central base for easy loading into the truck. Use a color code to identify packed boxes. Mark boxes in a systematic manner to help with easy identification when unpacking.
- Have an overnight bag that contains your personal items and utilities. Keep it with you at all times. It hastens transitioning in the new environment.
- Take clear photographs of electrical connections to check how they are connected when you move into your new home. This also acts as evidence incase of damage during transportation.
- Change your address in due time and inform relevant individuals/groups. Keep in constant communication with the movers informing them of regulations governing the premises you are moving into.
