National Moving Day, or Crazy Tuesday, is almost here and that means many people and families will begin their moving process. National Moving Day takes place on the Tuesday after Memorial Day, because it traditionally marked the end of the school year and the beginning of the busy summer moving season. While more students are let out of school in June these days, the fact remains that many families choose to move at the start of summer to make it as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
What Can You Do if You’re Moving?
Get Quotes From Various Companies
When you’re moving, there’s already a lot to do and you might be tempted to just choose the company with the best reviews that is closest to you and accept whatever quote they give you. However, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to shop around. Talk to several different moving companies to get a feel for their demeanor and obtain a quote from each one before you commit to hiring one of them.
You need to trust the company you’re working with to handle your belongings with care, while also feeling like you’re paying a fair price for your needs. That’s why it’s so important to feel a few different companies out before you choose who to hire. If any of the moving companies you talk to refuse to offer a quote without you committing to hiring them, they are not a trustworthy company and should be avoided at all costs.
Keep Tabs on Important Items
If you have items that are fragile, valuable, or have high sentimental value—keep close tabs on these items. Any of these items that cannot go with you and will need to be handled by your moving company should be photographed before they’re packed away so that you can ensure that they arrive and are in good condition. Having documentation will also help if you need to file a claim for missing or damaged items.
Organize Your Belongings
If you are going to self-pack, getting everything as organized as possible is important for making the boxing process go smoothly. If you are choosing professional packing, it’s still useful to go through each room of your home and organize your household inventory as much as possible. You can set aside any sensitive items that you don’t want your movers handling, along with anything you intend to take with you in your personal vehicle. In addition, you can ensure that similar items get packed together as much as possible.
