Moving Tips iStock.com/monkeybusinessimages

The thought of moving into a new home can be exciting, but the moving process itself is stressful. If you’ve ever worked with an unreliable moving company, they may have arrived late or forgotten to show up on your moving day. They may have also been careless with your valuable items. Or, in the worst-case scenario, they may have scammed you, asking for more money than what was previously negotiated when the project is finished, all because of some alleged extra services.

This doesn’t have to happen to you. Here are some valuable moving tips that will make you breathe a sigh of relief and avoid a moving nightmare.

Hire a Professional Moving Company

To avoid moving scams, it is a good idea to work with a professional moving company. If you think a company is professional but still want to read some customer reviews, you can visit their web site or ask them for testimonials or references. The company you choose should have a proven track record of successful moves, and they should be credible and courteous.

Do Proper Research

You can avoid most of the nightmares involved with a big move by doing your homework before hiring your movers. Check reviews for all the companies you’re interested in, and see what third-party web sites have to say about them as well.

Check Traffic Issues

Traffic or accidents on the way to your new home or office can turn your move into a nightmare. Although you cannot prevent traffic, you can reserve parking spaces directly in front of your old and new homes, and work with a moving company that has experienced drivers. They should also be able to deploy several moving vehicles to be more efficient, as well as be familiar with the area you are moving through.

Organize Things Properly

Misplaced and disorganized items can make it hard for you to unpack and set up your new home or office. You can prevent this by purchasing boxes, tape, labels, markers, and other protective materials to make sure that your items are safely packed and labeled. This makes life easier for the movers, who will need to know where to put the items in your new home or office. Also, it will help them know how to handle the contents, and it will make unpacking and setting up your new home or office so much easier.

Make a Schedule

Unless you are on vacation, you will have to make a moving schedule that incorporates your job, social activities, children, pets, and other responsibilities. If you don’t carefully organize and schedule your move, it may be difficult for you to decide what you need to do and when.

Making a schedule does not have to be complicated. Simply use a calendar to track the little things like donating old clothes and changing your address on forms. Then, stay on top of your moving process, and you will save yourself from a lot of stress.
