Tips for Choosing a Moving Company

choosing moving company

Moving is stressful occurrence, but choosing the right moving company can help ease the worry. A moving company will make the process easier on you and your family. Finding a moving company that you can trust is essential.  Follow the below tips for choosing a moving company to make sure you find the one that fits your needs:

  • Don’t wait until last minute to research the companies. This will make the process very exhausting and rushed.
  • Look around a few different places for moving companies. Ask friends, ask storage facilities, google the area, and check Angie’s List. In Carlisle, PA we recommend, All About Moving (717-585-5411).
    • Make sure the in-home estimates cover everything-check the contract to be sure everything you need is covered/included.
    • Make sure estimates mention appropriate licenses (i.e. carrier license, if applicable)

 

Packing your belongings is always part of the process when moving. The last thing you want to happen when you arrive at your new location is to have broken or damaged belongings.  Below are moving tips to make sure your belongings arrive safely at their new home and to make the process easier:

 

  • Use ziplock bags or small containers for parts, such as the bolts or screws from furniture. Attach the container/bag to the object it came from so that it’s easier to put back together.
  • Make a moving list. Although you may think you can keep track of everything, a list will help make sure nothing is forgotten and everything ends up where it belongs.
