Irrespective of where you are moving to, moving is made so much easier by doing some pre move planning.
When you moving it is a great time to itemize all of your belongings and throw out or sell the items that you no longer plan to use or want to keep. There is probably hundreds as everyone always has some. You can have yard sale or donate to a local charities.
if you intend on user a moving company then ask plenty of questions rates and results. If friends or neighbors have moved recently you might like to see if they will recommend a company.
One of the most important issues is availability and whether the company has a truck that will fit your belongings and whether they are free to move you on the day you need to move. Ask if their price is inclusive of boxes, tape, marking pens, dollies, and packing paper. Also ask if their quote includes travelling insurance.
Other questions to oaks include:
1) Do they have membership to the American Moving and Storage Association
2) How long have they been in business?
3) Can they give you referrals?
4) Can they provide a detailed and itemized statement of to be performed?
Moving companies make their charges based on weight, distance, and services provided. You should ask if your quote includes any additional charges for person-hours, packing materials, travel time, and any waiting time (if you can’t get into the property straight away). Ask what sort of payment methods the movers will accept and find out if you need to take out your own insurance.
Before selecting any insurance option, understand whether you will be reimbursed based on the extent of the damage and the item’s depreciated value, or on your cost to replace the item. Also, be sure to check your homeowner’s insurance for any moving damage coverage.
