By: 1st Choice Movers
The first item on the list is to find a good mover. Hiring a trusted, professional moving company is critical for the success of any move. Residents will want to make sure the company is properly licensed and adequately insured. They'll also want to be sure the movers have a good reputation and are affordable.
Once the mover is chosen and the date scheduled, it's time to get ready for moving day. First, residents will want to get rid of unwanted items. This is the best way to limit unnecessary packing and reduce the number of boxes and space needed when moving. People should only take items they intend to use in the foreseeable future.
People who are moving will also want to stock up on packing materials. Cardboard boxes of various sizes, packing paper, packing tape, bubble wrap and a set of colored markers are all necessary moving items to have on hand. Some companies, like 1st Choice Movers, will even provide boxes and packing materials for the move.
Other important tasks to remember when moving are to transfer utilities such as electric, water, gas, Internet and cable TV. Movers will also want to change their address before moving day to ensure there is no interruption to their mail delivery.
When moving day arrives, residents will want to be ready for a busy and often chaotic day. It's usually best to find a place for pets and young children to stay so they are safe and not in the way. The best way to get everything moved safely and efficiently is to hire professional movers. They will have the manpower and tools needed to move large and heavy items successfully.
Once everything is moved to the new house, it's time to unpack. The best way to get boxes to the correct rooms is to color code them and label each one. That way they will get to the correct room and it's much easier and quicker to unpack. When unpacking, it's best to begin with the rooms used on a daily basis and work toward the ones occupied less frequently.
