Moving Guide - Guide for a successful move

MovingQuotesMoving can be a stressful and consuming process. Once you have settled on your new home and a date for your move, it's time to pack up your belongings and head out. Depending on how far you are going and your prior moving and packing experience, different options may be right for you. Read on to see what techniques are right for you and will make your move the most successful and positive experience that it can be.


Unless you are moving only a few blocks and have just a few possessions, you will absolutely need a professional mover. While an early move, prior to having acquired many possessions can be accomplished with a pick-up truck and a few friends, this is not your average move. Ask friends and family, particularly those who have moved recently, for recommendations. Also make sure to do your research. Once you have generated a list of names, meet with or call moving companies and discuss your needs. Get moving quotes from the companies and determine who can do what you need for the best price. Also consider the people you meet with as well as their insurance, experience, and any recommendations you may have. If one company is a little more expensive, but very friendly and pleasant to work with, then you might want to consider working with them anyway. Remember that you need to trust these people to help you and to move your belongings. Working with people you are comfortable with can improve your moving experience.


Professional movers offer a variety of services. Some will only unload, transport, and load your things. Others will help you with certain packing tasks or pack for you altogether. While they need not pack your belongings for you, having help to load and unload things, particularly large pieces of furniture is a must. Things like bed frames, large tables, couches, and armoires are best moved by professionals and will relieve you of the concern of having to negotiate those pieces from one house to another. Just tell the movers where you want them!


For a successful move, there are things you will need other than just the movers. Make sure you have proper packing supplies. Although boxes, tape, and newspaper will be enough to adequately pack most objects, there are certainly some things which should be more carefully packaged, such as china, decorative objects, and other fragile things. If your moving company offers packing services, consider utilizing their help to pack these types of objects. They know how to best protect your possessions and keep things you care about from breaking.


Moving is an exciting time and a successful move will help you start off on the right foot. Even if things feel a little chaotic, keep smiling and make sure to be friendly and respectful to the movers. Remember, they're here to help you and it you are upbeat and ready to go, everyone's job is more enjoyable. So, with all this in mind, get out your boxes and get ready to move!
