10 Moving Tips
1) Get quotes from at least 3 different moving companies
Don’t hire the first moving company you interview. Instead, try to obtain quotes from at least three companies to compare prices and services. When interviewing a moving company, make sure they are properly licensed and insured.
2) Take photos of your belongings before packing them
If you are hiring movers, be sure to take “before” photos of all fragile and/or valuable items. If the mover breaks or damages your items while moving, you may need these photos in order to file a claim and receive compensation.
3) Color-code your moving boxes and household items with post-it notes
Don’t waste money on fancy moving labels. Use simple colored post-it notes to color-code your boxes when moving. For instance, place orange post-it notes on boxes containing kitchen items; place blue post-it notes on boxes containing office items, etc.
4) Bring a door stopper with you
You’ll need to keep the front door open on moving day in order to bring items in and out of the house more easily. You may also need to keep a back door or interior door open throughout the day. To make your life easier, bring a door stopper with you on moving day.
5) Place heavy items in small boxes
While it’s tempting to place heavy items in large boxes, it’s always best to put them inside small boxes instead. Not only will this will make it easier to carry the boxes, but it will also prevent your items from falling out the bottom and breaking the box.
6) Stuff boxes with fragile items with pillows and blankets
Double up on packing space by stuffing moving boxes containing fragile items with pillows and blankets. This will provide extra cushioning for items and prevent them from breaking, while also allowing you to pack more of your items inside the boxes.
7) Flatten your moving boxes and store for later
Planning on moving again in the next few years? Once you’ve finished unpacking, we highly recommend flattening all boxes and saving them for your next move. This will prevent you from having to purchase or find boxes later.
8) Check all your cabinets, drawers, and even appliances before moving out
When moving out, it’s easy to leave things behind. We recommend double checking all kitchen cabinets, bedroom closets, drawers and large appliances (refrigerator, washer and dryer, etc.) before leaving for the last time.
9) Make sure there's a parking spot for the moving truck
Whether you've hired movers or are renting a moving truck yourself, make sure there's an easily accessible parking space ready and waiting. If you or the movers can't park close by, your move will be much more difficult and potentially more expensive.
10) Schedule a free donation pickup
Are you planning to get rid of or replace old furniture, clothes, or appliances? Try scheduling a free donation pick-up with a local charity such as Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Habitat for Humanity. Having them pick up your donations will save you from having to haul everything yourself, which means you’ll have more time to focus on the move.
