Making Your Move Easier: Tips from Moving Companies

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Companies


As moving companies go, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with the most seamless move possible. Part of this comes from our experience as a moving company and ensuring that the customers know exactly what to expect as they move houses. We know that moving can be an extremely stressful time for the family, particular for children and pets.

Tips for Moving with Children

One of the easiest things to remember about a move, which will help make your life significantly easier with the children, is to ensure that you do not pack their favorite toy and instead, let them take it with them on the trip. Parents often feel that the move is an excellent opportunity to get rid of some of the extra toys that the children have accumulated. It is important to remember that your child is already feeling stressed, and any removal of a favorite toy could lead to added stress for them and for you. While this does not necessarily fall under the purview of moving companies, we know that providing you with these kinds of easy and simple tips could help make your move far easier. Here are a few more helpful hints to plan your move successfully.

Scheduling Makes Things Easier 

Any good moving company will tell you that scheduling is one of the keys to a successful and seamless move. You want to ensure that you make your reservations for the moving company to come out at least two to four weeks before the actual day of the move. Similarly, you want to make sure to schedule disconnect times for about a week before you move, if possible. You do not want to pay and accept bills for your phone, utilities, and cable when you are no longer living at the old residence. While you are in the process of scheduling your disconnect at the old house, you should also make sure to schedule the service to be installed for at least a week or several days before you arrive at the new location. This will allow you to move into the new house and have all the gadgets and gizmos you need.  The moving company's job is to make sure we move all your belongings from location A to location B. Everything else will be up to you, so we highly recommend that you make a moving day list.

Final Tips

Once our crew arrives, things will start to move at a rapid pace. You may want to consider packing a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it is the last thing added to the truck. You should also bear in mind that it is against the law for moving companies to transport hazardous materials such as bottle gases, gasoline, ammunition, explosives, or any other flammable items. If you plan on moving any of these, you should pack them in your personal vehicle before or after the move.

Remember that we can pack everything for you, move you, and even unpack. As a result, we can make your move as easy as you want it to be.
