Moving can be a stressful time in your life but these tips can help you get through your move with ease. Ensure that we are following these.
- Cheaper is not always better.
Choose a packers and movers company that is going to take care of you and your belongings. So ensure that you are getting lowest rate as well as exceptional services. You know the real cost of a move can be hidden by low prices, followed by bad workers that break your items or drag the clock out all day. Experienced movers like us, move fast and safe using the utmost care when moving your hard earned belongings and items.
- Do not wait until the last minute to schedule your move.
Scheduling a move at the last minute can add stress and unnecessary anxiety to an already stressful time. Make it easier on yourself by scheduling your move one month ahead or at least 2 weeks.
- Label your boxes properly.
Label your boxes with colored tape or labels with maker so you can keep track of them once you get to your new place.
- If you have kids then be sure to transfer their school records.
Get your kids enrolled early, so their transition in to their new school will go smoother. Kids education is so important.
- Change your address with your financial institutes and other organizations you care about.
By doing this you will never miss a bill or bank statement while you are moving.
- Set up your account for your new utilities and services in advance.
You will have all of your utilities on once you reach the new place like installation of TV set, wifi.
- Preparation is everything.
Preparing for your move makes everything easier on you and your movers. Moving doesn’t have to be a huge headache for you and your family. Make sure you are on same page as your packers and movers. If you are moving do another part of town, you may need to make sure your cable provider is the same at you new home. If not , get all the remotes and boxes together. Either drop them off before move day, or put them all together in a box and write : NO PACKing all over the box.
- If moving your freezer or refrigerator, then be sure to defrost them up to two days ahead of time.
This gives your movers an easier time moving your appliances. You definitely won’t want water all over your floor. Get all un-installation done like AC.
- Before you leave take a family photo together.
Cherish the memory of your old home with a family photo. Of course be sure to take an arrival picture of your new home as well! Do so and you will thank us later :)
- Liquids Items.
Things like Bleach, Soap and other chemicals cannot be moved. They can spill throughout the truck and cause damage to your beautiful furniture. Even worse, sometimes chemicals can spill into each other and become a toxic mess on the truck
- Personal Belongings.
Your purse, wallet, iphone, phone chargers, kids game tablets and other items that you use more than once a day should be place into your car , or if the heat or space will not allow, all those items should be put into a small empty closet or pantry. This will prevent any frustration when these commonly used items get packed or loaded into the truck by mistake.
- Stay Organized.
If you are doing your own packing, try and keep all the boxes in one central location, any clutter such as shoes by the frontdoor, clothes on the floor or other little messes that build up during moving, might slow your packers and movers down. As you know more time, more cost.
