Moving Tips


How To Make Your Move More Painless

  1. Be realistic with your time and moving abilities. Moving is an exhaustive, time consuming process. Most people over estimate what they will have time to complete themselves. You will likely be busy arranging the moving logistics, making change of service orders, arranging the new location move in, letting family and friends know about the move, working through the families move challenges, finalizing the home sales, completing last minute repairs, cleaning, and maintaining the normal work / home routines to take care of all the packing, and moving yourself. Look for a moving company that can help you with your entire move. Your move will be a whole lot simpler if you're able to work with one professional, full service, moving company that can manage your entire move from start to finish.
  2. Poor packing, not filling boxes, and using flimsy boxes often causes damages to your items.
  3. If you pack yourself, call the moving company three days prior to your moving date to verify how much packing you have done and discuss if you'll be ready for the move.
  4. Talk to your moving team about any special requests that you have of them right away when they arrive. For example: no smoking in the home, be especially gentile with…, avoid the dog that is tied up in the back yard.
  5. Offer your moving team cold drinks often. A pizza lunch or meal goes a long way toward making your movers very happy.
  6. Don't micro-manage your movers. Tell them what you want right away and step back to let them do their jobs. Too much attention to the little details can make for a long day for everyone.
