Helpful Tips to Consider on Your Next Move with Movers

Jan 10, 2008
In all my experiences with moving, relocating and with having to hire moving companies to do the job of packing, relocating and then unpacking, sometimes the process feels so overwhelming and intimidating. Their is so much information and trust you need to know and have before you commit to a moving company to ensure the safe and timely delivery of your personal items.

It's always difficult to put your trust in a company or even a person that you never met. Let's face it you have to have faith and trust that all your personal possessions will arrive at the planned destination when you expect them to and within a reasonable and competitive and fair price range.

If you have the luxury of moving any time of the year try not to move during the summer months. Moving in the summer is peak season for movers as well as the first day of the month as well as the last days of the month. Prices are generally higher and you need to commit to a few weeks in advance to ensure that a moving company has availability.

You need to make sure that you specify the exact date you want to move and when you can expect your personal belongings to arrive. This is the start to a well planned move. Plan a convenient time for you and an agent to come to your home and visually survey all the contents that will be moved so that you can get an actual estimate.

But before the moving company agent arrives at your home you should inspect the contents of your house from basement all the way up to the attic. Don't forget about the shed if and garage if you have them and have items stored their. Make sure you show the agent exactly what is to be moved in each and every move and make sure that he notes down every item so that there is no misunderstandings.

This entire process can sometimes make you feel like a prisoner in your own world. Do you know that it has been said time and time again that moving is rated as the third most highly pressured experience you could ever go through next to being incarcerated or getting married. There are a lot of decisions and commitments you need to make and consider thoroughly before actually moving and packing and then keep your fingers crossed that it all works out as planned.

I know for me and I'm sure you have heard them too, so many stories from friends and family members and their experiences with movers and how unsuspecting you can be to some details you probably would never consider. Think about moving like this, it is estimated that the average person will move on an average of six to seven times in their life time. We always think that we are smart and privy. Remember movers move everyday you don't. Get everything in writing.
