5 Myths on Moving and Professional Movers

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving from your residence or business calls for detailed planning to make sure all runs efficiently. Lots of work as well as coordination is vital on the actual moving day. As with any industry, the moving industry suffers many misguided beliefs about the moving process. Let's discuss five misguided beliefs and uncover the truth.

Myth #1. All moving companies are the same.

The service you pay for may differ from moving company to moving company. Pricing, service quality, availability, and experience level are only a couple of ways moving companies differ.

You won't want to hire local movers to do a relocation across the country. Similarly, hiring inexperienced movers can cost you greater than you have allocated.

Research ahead of contracting the services of any movers. If you use a professional moving company, you will save both money and time over a smooth move.

Myth #2: Weekends are the Perfect Time to Move

Many assume that when you commence the move on Friday, you'll get plenty of time to pack, move and unpack throughout the weekend. As convenient as this may appear, the issue comes that everyone feels exactly the same and utilizes the same company. Therefore, a weekday move is really a superb option. Ensure that you plan as far upfront as you possibly can, irrespective of the day of the week or time frame you opt to move.

Myth #3: Tape is Tape and Boxes are Boxes: They Are All the equivalent

Duct tape or masking tape cannot compete with packing tape. Packing tape's design functions well with cardboard boxes. It also doesn't leave a film of stickiness on your home furnishings. Packing tape holds together well, is flexible, and can be trusted to keep together under pressure.

The exact same goes for cardboard boxes. Moving boxes need to hold together under a large amount of weight and are offered in several shapes and sizes for many different household items. Talk to your moving company to find out if they sell boxes along with other moving supplies. By using items made for moving, you'll be able to pack your things knowing it is more safe and sound throughout the move.

Myth #4: Things Always Breaks or Goes Missing

It's not normal practice for professional movers to lose or damage your things in the course of transit. However, many customers tend to be overwhelmed with stress whenever they move because they are convinced things frequently go missing or break.

When you get a professional moving company using a certified moving process, you will not need to worry as much. All in all, accidents can happen, therefore ensure that you inquire about the company's coverage selections. You can also get hold of your homeowners insurance company to make sure you have sufficient protection and peace of mind.

You may also go a step more and label all fragile items and alert your moving crew beforehand of items that will require special handling.

Myth #5: All Moves are Disorganized

Everyone believes that the move and switch to a new place is going to be completely disorderly. Irrespective of how much ahead in time you plan, you typically anticipate relocating to be a mess. Moving nervousness is mainly due to anxiety about change and not enough organization.

Nonetheless, a mess-free move is not inconceivable to attain with a little effort and teamwork. Along with prepared professional movers by your side, the most you have to do is label your boxes, identify items and tell the team which is a priority item, and which could wait.
