Moving your home can be a real challenge: packing everything in a correct way while not forgetting or breaking anything, properly labeling all the boxes, carrying heavy loads, and finally moving itself to unknown area. Not surprisingly you may feel yourself stuck. It is normal to feel excitement, regret and even panic. Adding time pressures to the mix only heightens your anxiety. But in fact, the relocation doesn’t have to be scary – it can turn to become a real adventure. The best way to start your moving experience is working together with the professionals.
A local residential move is a short distance move within the same county, city or even street. So, if you are planning to move not that far, your move is considered to be a local one.
Start your first relocation by figuring out your overall budget. It is time to think of how you want to move. Can you do it yourself? Or do you want to hire a professional? Both options have their pros and cons. If you have decided to avoid stress and save your time, do your best to find a trustworthy reputable moving company. Contact several movers to obtain a quote. Don’t be shy to discuss the details, include them in the moving contract, and be sure to prepare an inventory of all your stuff. When choosing a move date, remember about the so-called “peak season dates.” If you are planning your move from May thru September it can cost you substantially more.
Packing your belongings in a proper way is significant to be sure your stuff arrives safely to your new home. Most reputable movers offer packing services as well as providing all the necessary materials: boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, tape and more. The packing specialists will wrap and pack everything with extra care in a short amount of time and prepare your belongings for delivery. All non-essential or seasonal items are usually boxed up first. Labeling all boxes as clearly as possible ahead of time can be very useful when it comes time to unpack. Be sure to take all of your important papers with you (keep valuable documents you may need kept separate on your person). Also, pack your regular medicines, where you can easily find them.
Think of all possible incidents that could occur, and be sure your contract with the movers includes insurance to cover possible losses or damages. The inventory, which is an enumeration of all your belongings, should be added to the contract. Keep that list with you so you know if you are missing anything when you reach your destination. It is also a good idea to take pictures of the most valuable and fragile stuff for liability purposes. Do this to prevent unpleasant situations. Everyone may wish their move goes well, but unfortunately, even the best moving companies have accidents occasionally.
