Moving can be an uphill task as described by most people. In fact, moving has often been considered to be a stressful event in most people’s lives! This however does not seem to diminish people’s need to move every year here in America. Recent statistics show that Americans tend to move more than they do visit the country’s most popular attraction; Disneyland. It is also estimated that the age group that tends to move more often is between 18-35 years of age. We believe that you fall in this category as you get ready for your move to or from Southern University at New Orleans . However, you need not stress about your impending move at all. At A-1 Auto Transport Inc, we have moved thousands of folks in Louisiana and all over America with resounding success. Therefore, if you intend to have a stress-free move, stick with us and you will be glad you did.
How to achieve a stress-free move
There are different ways in which you can approach your move to make it a stress-free experience. We have compiled just a few to help you along.
- Prepare a moving toolbox: Moving day can become pretty hectic, and the last thing you want to do is spend precious time searching for your moving tape or markers. Prepare a moving toolbox well in advance by putting together all the moving supplies you will need in a box.
- Use your drawers: You do not have to empty your drawers into a packing box. You can minimize your packing time by simply wrapping the whole drawer in plastic wrapping. Additionally, this hack can be used for shoe racks, utensil organizers and other items that act as containers.
Why you will need the services of a moving company
Moving is a process that has very many tasks involved, which will require you to call in the professional movers at some point. Here are some valid reasons why you will need the services of a professional mover.
- Proper tools: Movers have all the proper tools that you will need to make your move easier. For example, you may need different types of wrenches to disassemble your furniture, or moving dollies and hoisting straps. Chances that you may have these tools lying around your house are low.
- Free up your time: Moving is a time-consuming and tedious process that you are better off leaving to the movers. You will still need to do other tasks outside of the moving process, and if you contract movers it will be easier to do this.
- Your friends won’t hate you: The most obvious place to get moving help is from friends. Most friends will be happy to help but if asked, they would rather not spend their entire day sifting through your stuff and packing boxes. Get professional moving help and save your friendships.
How to find the best university moving company
Finding a mover that will cater to your moving needs can seem like an uphill task, especially if you have never used a professional moving service before. We have compiled some steps to help you get started on the right track.
- Recommendations: This is usually the easiest way to start. Ask your friends and family to give you recommendations for the movers that they have used recently. It is also advisable to get recommendations from a trusted local realtor.
- Create a list: With the recommendations above, come up with a list of not less than five moving companies to consider for your student move. It is advisable to consider local movers over movers from a different state or located further away.
- Ask questions: Call each of these movers and ask them all the questions that pertain to your move. Be as specific as possible. Use this interview to eliminate movers by crossing out the ones who do not answer your questions satisfactorily.
