Problems To Avoid When Moving | Three Movers

There are several things you’ll want to plan out and execute in the days leading up to your move, but it’s equally important that you avoid certain things that will make the process more difficult. In this article, we’ll explore some of the things you should avoid doing as moving day approaches, which will hopefully make your moving experience go smoothly and without many of the pitfalls that add unnecessary stress to your move.

Not Give Yourself Enough Time

Time is of the essence when you’re moving. If you leave everything to the last minute, you’re going to have problems that could have been avoided. This relates to the second tip below which involves proper planning. The reality of moving to a new home is that surprises do pop up and not having enough time to adjust or get everything done on time can be a real headache. It’s never too early to start planning or even packing things that you won’t need in the immediate future.

Improper Planning

Planning is a key part of staying organized and on task when you’re moving. Don’t forget to reserve a moving truck early on in the process, or contact moving companies to assess prices and services. Maintaining a checklist of what needs to be done can be very helpful when it comes to staying organized. By the same token, understanding what can be packed and when is also very helpful. Starting early is always helpful, but you don’t want to pack things you might use before you move.

Not Researching Moving Companies

It may be tempting to go with the first moving company you find online or in a phone book, but this is not a great approach. Since all moving companies offer free price quotes, you can take advantage of this by comparing prices and service before making a decision. It’s also helpful to do some basic research about a company before you contact them using the FMCSA moving company database. The FMCSA, or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is the arm of the U.S. Department of Transportation that oversees moving companies and provides most reliable information you can find.

Trying To Do Everything Yourself

Many people attempt to tackle most or all of a move on their own, which can backfire tremendously. Even with friends and family helping, you’ll still want the benefit of moving equipment like appliance straps, furniture dollies and other things that will make it easier and lessen the chance of injury. While a local move can often be done with a little help, there are some items that are simple not safe to attempt moving on your own, either because of the potential for personal injury or damage to your belongings.

Forgetting the Essentials

It’s important that you put aside items you will be using on a regular basis and keep them separate from the other items you pack before moving. Things like medication, phone chargers, snacks, and anything else that you might need, even as you’re making the drive to your new house, saves you from having to dig through boxes as you try to find them. Try to make a list of these items and set them aside so that you’ll have access to them when you need them.
