Moving can be very challenging and stressful whether you’re an experienced mover or not. Suggestions can help a great deal with effectively planning and attaining the best moving experience you can have.

When moving, you’re going to go through tons of moving supplies. Make sure to buy more boxes then you think you are going to need. You’d be surprised at how many boxes you will actually go through. It’s normal to suddenly have items pop up at the last minute that still need to be packed. Collect a good amount of strong packing tape, packing paper, and bubble wrap.

Planning goes a long way in making moving a whole lot more manageable. Keep all estimates and other papers you may have in one place or folder. Remember, summer is the busiest time of year for moving. This means prices are most likely going to be higher. If you still plan on making your move in the summer, be sure to receive moving estimates at least two months ahead of your desired moving date.

Lists are extremely essential all throughout the entire moving process. List any and all loans, bills, mortgages, credit card payments, any monthly payments you need to remember, and all future notifications-services, health providers, etc. The lists you make are a huge help to both you and your movers when discussing your relocation.

All valuable files such as- deeds, titles, birth certificates, school, bank, and medical files, etc. should be put aside in a box or container, along with any other valuable objects you want to keep close to you. Do not leave these items with the movers; all items like these should be transported by you on moving day.

Give the movers’ detailed information about the size and shape of any unusual rooms, passageways, or driveways in you new and present location. Also, talk with them about parking permits and space issues.

Double-check every room to make sure you are not forgetting anything. Decide on the items you wish to keep before you move. Keep in mind that the less you carry, the less it will cost to move. Doing so will save you precious time and money.

It is important that you stay away from any companies that do not have a DOT license. Only choose companies with this license.
