We have previously discussed why National Moving Day takes place this time of year. Traditionally, kids would be getting off of school and beginning their summer vacation around Memorial Day, which caused a massive uptick in families taking the opportunity to move to a new home. In addition, we are well into the spring season and the weather is continuing to get warmer and more comfortable for a move—waiting until summer means moving during the hottest months of the year. If you are planning to move, there are some important steps to take before the big day arrives.
What Can You Do if You’re Moving?
National Moving Day is the perfect time to learn about the critical steps that you need to take as you begin to prepare for your move.
Determine Which Services You Need
“Moving services” is an umbrella term for a large number of various specialty services that moving companies offer to their customers. There are some questions you need to ask yourself in order to determine which services you will need.
Am I moving locally or long-distance? This matters. At Up N Go Moving, we offer Short Distance Moving, Long Distance Moving, and Out of State Moving. All of these services are different, and the company you hire will need to know which service you require for your move.
How much stuff do I have? How much inventory a company is dealing with will affect the cost of the services you require, and it also helps the company know how many crew members to send to get your belongings taken care of in a reasonable amount of time.
Will I be packing myself or having my movers do it? Having your moving company pack your home for you is an extra expense, but it can be worth it if you need to continue working or have a lot of other life responsibilities going on that make it difficult for you to pack your home yourself. If you’re going to pack yourself, you will want to give yourself plenty of time to get it done without having to rush as the big day arrives.
Do I have any specialty items that need to be moved? Specialty items can include things like fitness equipment, large pianos, valuable artwork, or anything that is delicate or fragile. These kinds of items require some special expertise and custom services to move, so your movers need to know if you have anything that requires special care.
