Surviving Your Moving Day

Aug 17, 2007
Moving to a new part of town, city, state, or country can be frustrating. Finding boxes, packing, hiring movers, unpacking, and settling into your new home can take two weeks or more. On top of that you may be starting a new job or learning more about your new neighborhood. Hiring the right moving services will help make your move less of a hassle.

There are two types of moves that people make. Local moves are moves that are in the same town or city. A long distance move is a move to a new state, or to a new country. Local moves are less expensive because you will not need the moving truck for more than two or three days and because you will not be putting as much mileage on the truck as a long distance move. When looking for moving companies to hire, you should get estimates to see how much your move will cost. You should also ask how much extra equipment will cost. This equipment will include moving blankets and furniture dollies.

There are also two types of moves you can make. A full pack move is when the movers pack all the boxes and wrap up your furniture to put into the truck. The movers will also supply boxes. A regular move will require you to pack your stuff. The movers will come and load the truck and drive to your new home. The main differences between full pack moves and regular moves are the work involved and the cost. It will cost more to hire movers to pack your stuff.

If you decide on a regular move, you should buy all of your materials in advance so that you will not have to stop during the packing process and buy more supplies. Supplies for moving including boxes, packing tape, markers, newspaper or plastic, and a box knife in case you need to open a box that is already sealed or when you want to unpack after the move.

Once you have chosen which type of move you want to make, you will have to decide what to move, what to dispose of, and what to donate. This can be difficult, but it is better to get rid of as much stuff as possible so that you do not move into your new home with items you don`t need. Moving is a great time to discard old items, broken items, or just items that will not fit into your new home.

These and other tips on moving services can be found at gomovers website. You will find good advice on moving your family, hiring a moving company, international moving information, and making that transition from your old home to your new one.

Moving doesn`t have to be a stressful situation. With the proper planning, finding the right movers, and discarding items that you no longer need, you will be able to move your stuff easily. If a move goes well, the stressful part will be unpacking all of you stuff!
