Create a master moving to-do list
When moving homes, you inevitably end up having 1,000 different things to do and remember. Write them down somewhere! Jot them down in your phones note app, or go old-school with a giant yellow legal pad. No detail is too insignificant. Even if it’s as simple as having to return your cable box to your television provider before you leave or maybe you just remembered the name of the little bookstore in town that will accept your used novels? Write it down!
Research professional moving companies
Be sure to ask several significant questions, Do you charge for mileage? When do you start and stop billing? Do you prorate the billing if I start but do not use an entire hour? Most companies prorate billing in just 30-minute increments. For your convenience we offer 15-minute increments when billing. We also do not start billing until we arrive on-site, on location. That means you don’t have to pay for unnecessary driving time for us to get to you. Selecting the right moving company will often make or break your entire moving experience so it’s important to get it right the first time. Ask your friends or family for recommendations. The more effort you put into finding a reputable company with excellent customer service ahead of time, the less hassle you’ll have on moving day.
