Moving? Three Things to Avoid

Are you moving this fall? Here are a few tips on how to avoid missteps during your move:

Bad movers

Many moving horror stories involve rogue or incompetent movers.

The good news is that there is an easy way to avoid bad movers. All you need to do is carefully research your movers before hiring them to make sure you are dealing with licensed and experienced professionals you can trust. It’s also a good idea to purchase appropriate insurance for your belongings, just in case. We recommend reading reviews online to get a sense of the business ethic and their team.

Traffic problems

Heavy traffic or road accidents can also turn your move into a real nightmare.

Of course, there’s nothing you can do to prevent traffic accidents or breakdowns. But you can at least reserve a parking place directly in front of your old and new homes, and choose a moving company that has experienced drivers and several moving vehicles in good condition.

Poor organization

The only way to avoid problems when moving house is to plan each phase of your relocation adventure in meticulous detail and stay one step ahead all the time. Otherwise, you may find yourself facing any of the following all-too-common moving ordeals.

Consider purchasing boxes, tape, labels, markers, and furniture covers from us! Furniture covers protect your treasured pieces of furniture. And, organizing items into boxes with labels makes it super easy to unload and organize in your new home.
