Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Team Anderson Realty. If you recall from last time, we took a look at some ways you can start preparing for your move. Whether you already know where you’re moving or you’re still looking for a home, it’s never too early to start planning how you will move and what moving company you will hire. Although it may be too early to plan the specifics, you’ll need to have a good idea of how much money the process will cost in order to plan your overall budget.

Finding a moving company

Finding the right moving company is another important part of planning your move. You’re going to want to hire movers that are both affordable and can provide you with the services that you need. Many companies only do local moving, so if you’re moving across the country, it may be more difficult to find the right company for what you need. Additionally, if you’re moving long distance, it will be more difficult to schedule your move, so that’s something to take into consideration once the time comes. This is especially the case if you’ll be moving during a peak time when a lot of other people are moving.

If you need storage solutions during the moving process, you should make sure to find a moving company that has this available to you. Although you can rent your own self-storage or call another storage company, you’ll save money and have an easier time keeping track of everything if you rely on one company for all your needs.

Start Packing

Many homeowners find that one of the most time-consuming parts of the whole moving process is packing everything. And if you hire a moving company that doesn’t have packing services, you’re going to have to plan further ahead to make sure you have all the packing materials you need, and that the job gets done before the movers arrive.

Everything fragile needs to be packed properly so that it isn’t damaged while in transit to your new home. Each piece of glass dinnerware should be bubble wrapped individually and placed in a larger box. With furniture, you can use any number of things to protect it during the move. Bubble wrap, mattress covers, and plastic stretch wrap can all help. How you wrap your furniture will depend on its size and shape. However, you should make sure to place a rug or some cardboard on the floor so you don’t damage it as you’re leaving. If the new homeowner finds any damage that wasn’t there during the walkthrough, they may ask for compensation for it.

Plan your move in

After arriving at your new home with a truck full of your belongings you should already have a plan of how you’ll get everything inside. It would be a shame to arrive, only to find out that you don’t have the right tools or personnel in order to get the job done. If you’re moving large furniture, perform measurements on it so that you know which doors it can fit through. As you move in, make sure to keep everything away from the door so that it’s not in the way and won’t be a potential tripping hazard. Bring some old rugs or leftover cardboard to lay on the ground so you don’t damage the floor and if you need to, recruit some extra help so you don’t hurt yourself while moving in.
