Things to Consider When Choosing a Moving Company

When choosing a moving company visit the offices and warehouse, meet the staff. Even though they will not be the ones in your home, you will have a better sense of the business and the quality of services they perform. Check to see if you need to make an appointment. It's best to see them unannounced.

You should get 3 estimates. Be sure that you understand the estimate that you have recieved. Not all companies will calculate the estimates the same. Company A may have a charge for an elevator that Company B does not have. Look beyond the bottom line price.

If you do not understand your estimate, be sure to call your sales representative with your questions before making your final choice of companies.

Know that when you are moving long distance you will need to agree to your loading and delivery dates before the move. Your shipment will most likely not be the only one on the truck. If your delivery spread is as long as 2-12 days, you will have to be available during that timeframe. The driver and staff will do their best to keep you updated as to when it will arrive, however, inclement weather and uncontrollable mishaps with the vehicle can delay the driver at times. Keep in contact with the office. They will keep you notified of any changes - if any.

Packing Tips

When preparing for a move, there are easy tips to follow to ensure your belongings arrive in the same condition as they were prior to packing.

For example, when packing breakable items it’s wise to use bubble wrap and plain professional packing paper. Never use newspaper because the ink can bleed. Seal boxes with packing tape – not duct tape – to make sure they don’t open during transit or collapse when you carry them.

Taking the time to efficiently pack saves time and energy on moving day. Following proper wrapping, padding and boxing procedures are vital to protect your belongings and making your move a success.

When packing, keep these tips in mind:

- Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy, very fast.

- Try to pack all electronic equipment such as stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use low-static bubble wrap when packing these items.

- Always place dishes upwards when packing.

- All boxes need to be closed and sealed with packing tape. Never use duct tape and don’t interlock the tops.

- Pack important and sentimental documents separately so it’s easily accessible, including children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information and photo albums.

- Pack a box of essential items you will need immediately after the move. Make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.

- Don’t use laundry baskets or bags to pack belongings.

- Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface to reduce the chance of breakage.

- Remember: the heavier the item, the smaller the box.

It’s important to use professional packing supplies and boxes. Use boxes designed for the items you are packing – dish pack for dishes, wardrobe box for clothing – to minimize the chance of damage.

Free boxes can be tempting, but they may have been structurally damaged by their original contents. Grocery boxes may contain bugs and larvae that could infect your new location and your belongings – no one wants that.
