Top 5 moving tips for a stress-free move
- Find out from your moving company items they won’t move. These include explosives, flammable materials such as gasoline and corrosive materials like acids. These materials pose safety hazards, and you may have to dispose of them or give away to neighbors.
- Start packing several weeks in advance. This will give you the freedom to pack at your own pace and to arrange the boxes so that they are not in your way. When moving day finally approaches, you'll be ready and relaxed.
- Don’t just get any boxes. Look for the right boxes with firm edges that can hold your items without falling apart. If possible, get brand new boxes which are free of pests and bugs. Most of these boxes can easily be found in local stores or bookstores.
- Downsize your household items as you pack. Have a separate box where you'll be throwing in stuff that you won't need at your new place. Moving with less stuff reduces your load and consequently your moving cost.
- Clean your new house before moving in. The last thing you want is to try to clean the house while the movers are bringing in the boxes and furniture.
Why you should consider a professional moving company
- Peace of mind. Planning the process of moving is not an easy task and can be overwhelming and tiresome. Professional movers understand the best ways to handle your move and ensure your items are packed safely. You don’t have to get involved in any physical activity; the movers will handle everything.
- Liability. When you hire a professional mover, they will be held liable for your possessions and will do all they can to protect them from any damages. If you move on your own and an item breaks, it's your responsibility to repair or replace it. But with movers, your items are insured making you eligible for compensation in case of a loss.
- Reliability. As much as your friends love you, they know how taxing a move can be and most of them would rather skip this. But unlike your friends, professional movers are trained to undertake such tasks with ease. They’ll make sure they are at your doorstep early in the morning to begin the move.

Tips to find a reputable mover
The first step is to get recommendations from people you know. You can trust your friends, family members or co-workers to give you honest judgment about a particular moving company they have used in the past. Any information you get is valuable, and it's up to you to decide which company is right for you.
If you don’t get any suggestions, use the internet to find reliable movers. Most companies have websites where they advertise their services and rates of moving. Shortlist companies that have caught your eye and pick the best among them.
For your safety, only work with licensed movers. The FMCSA has the responsibility of registering and licensing moving companies. Interstate movers must have a USDOT and MC Number to be allowed to carry household items. In-state movers need permits from their respective states.
Give preference to a BBB Accredited mover. This is the highest recognition from the Better Business Bureau which signifies that the company upholds professional business practices and offers excellent services. Such a company can be trusted to handle your items professionally.
