CALL AT LEAST THREE MOVING COMPANIES
It’s good to shop around and see what’s out there, especially if this is your first time hiring a moving company. It’ll give you a better idea of the cost in your area and average cost for the size of your move.
SET A BUDGET
While it’s good to be cost-savvy, don’t go for the company that quotes you with the lowest price. Set a reasonable budget that you feel comfortable spending. Always take into consideration the weight of all your items and the distance from your old home to your new home.
SORT AND DONATE BEFORE YOU PACK
In order to avoid bringing items to the new house that you won’t use, sort your belongings and donate the old stuff. This will also create more space for you to pack things you really want to keep.
THE MOVING DAY
Even if you decide to take advantage of our full–service package with packing and moving, there are still going to be some boxes that you will need to pack on your own. For example, you will want to pack a “Go-Bag” with clothing for a week, basic bedding, bathroom and kitchen items and, just as important, shower curtains! Clearly mark boxes you must access immediately so you aren’t rummaging through boxes just to find a toothbrush.
HAVE AN EXTRA BOX OR TWO
Just in case there are some last-minute items that might be lying around. This will make it easier for the movers to accommodate any items that you don’t want to be left behind.
DON’T OVER PACK
The saying “less is more” is always a safe bet when packing your boxes. Make sure you follow the proper weight recommendations for each box so that items don’t get broken or squished.
