  • There is a “peak” and “off peak” moving season in the moving industry.  The “peak” season is during the summer, also, the beginning and the end of the month or end of the year holidays is a very busy time for movers. Keep in mind that during this period the demand for moving equipment, vans and personnel is high.
  • Move at the most convenient time for You.
  • Call or email the moving company to get an estimate, this will allow you to find the best and cheapest company.
  • Decide what items you are taking with you and what you will discard. Make sure to check every area of your home.

 Free Moving Packing Tips

Good packing will help you reduce the chance of damaging your household goods during a move. If you don’t have time invest in this task, your moving agent can help you pack your household along with your furniture. The moving agent will provide you with the boxes and their packers will pack your entire home in the best and safest manner. However if you are not able to afford  these services then doing the packing on your own could save you on your moving cost.

 

·         Keep supplies handy for packing. Boxes, marking pen, tissue, newspaper, bubble wrap, tape, scissors, tape measure.

·         Use strong boxes for safety of your goods. If using containers make sure you can secure them tightly. If possible use special boxes for dishes and other special items.

·         Try to pack audio-video equipment in their original boxes. Label cables. If you need to remove screws tape them to the objects they are removed from.

·         Avoid loading over 50lbs in one box.

·         Label every box with the following information: (1) room it should go in (2) whether is fragile (3) order in which should be loaded.

·         Use cushion such as bubble wrap, newspaper or tissue between items. Save room and use your own towels and blankets to wrap fragile items.

·         Pack medicines in leak proof  container.

·         Check with the local U.S. Department of Agriculture, for regulations on moving plants from state to state. Many states have restrictions on certain plants to prevent transferring pests or bugs than might destroy valuable cash crops.

  

Items You Should Not Pack During Your Move:

 

It is very important that you know which items can and can not be shipped since there are certain regulations movers  should follow to ensure safety.

  • Drain oil and fuel from lawn mower or other machinery. Throw away any partially used cans of oil, paint, thinner or other substances that could leak.
  • All refillable tanks must be purged and sealed by a local propane gas dealer. Get rid of non-refillable tanks.
  • Consider not refinishing your furniture right before you move. Certain products may soften the wood making it easy to imprinting from furniture pads.
  • A new satellite dish may cost less than moving the present one.
  • If you are planning to move large objects such as large screen TVs, exercise equipment, hot tubs etc, you will need third-party service before you move. Consult with your moving agent about third party servicing.

 

Below is a list of items not to be shipped prior to packing and loading dates:

 

·         All flammable, corrosive or explosive items:

Aerosols/ Acids/ Ammonia/ Ammunition/ Batteries/ Car Batteries/ Charcoal/ Chemistry Sets

Cleaning Fluid/ Fertilizer/ Fireworks/ Gasoline/ Kerosene/ Lamp Oil/ Lighter Fluid/ Liquid Bleach/ Loaded Weapons/ Matches/ Motor Oil/ Nail Polish Remover/ Paints/ Paint Thinner/

Pesticides/ Pool Chemicals/ Propane Tanks/ Weed Killer.

 

·         Discard perishables. Food, plants or living things that may die or spoil in transit.

Frozen Food/ Open Food/ Plants/ Produce.

   Keep in mind that you should empty your refrigerator and freezers at least 24 hrs before

        loading. Keep the appliance doors open so it will dry out  in order to prevent the growth of

        mold and odor.

 

·         Some articles may not be accepted for transportation:

The moving agent assumes no responsibility should the following items are into their possession without  their knowledge. Although these articles do not create a physical threat it can become a problem if your shipment gets delayed or items get lost. To avoid this situation, carry irreplaceable or sentimental items with you such as:

 

Address Books/ Air Line Tickets/ Bonds IRAs/ Car Keys/ Check Books/ Coins/ Computer Software/ Deeds/ Disks/ Files/ Financial Statements/ Furs/ Jewelry/ Letters/ Med/ Personal

Video Tapes/ Photos and Albums/ Research Projects/ School Records/ Stamp Collection/ Sterling Silver/ Stocks/ Tax Records.

How to find a good moving company:

 

We recommend that you do some research and try to select a moving company five to eight weeks before you move. Make sure to let the moving company know if you are moving locally, intrastate (within a single state), or interstate (from one state to another). This information is essential when determining the regulations, licenses, and pricing structures under which the moving company operates.

 

Here are some helpful hints to find a good mover:

  • Try to get some recommendations from friends, family, and coworkers, their satisfaction is a good sign that the moving company will provide good service. Check with the Better Business Bureau about the company's reputation. If the company has a lot of complaints, obviously you do not want to use their services. Or if they have a few complaints, check what was the response and the actions taken by the moving company.
  • Ask to speak with the owner. Ask questions such as how long the moving company has been in business, certifications the mover has, etc.  If you are not able to reach the owner before the move, will he be available after the move if a problem should arise?
  • Make a detailed inventory of every item you are moving and label the contents of all boxes.
  • If you have items that require special handling, like a piano, or antiques, make sure to let the mover know and make sure they have the experience and the right equipment to perform such tasks.
  • Get several estimates from different moving companies, and try to find the best deal. Keep in mind that sometimes cheaper does not mean better. If one moving company offers cheaper prices than others find out why. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to let the mover know in detail every item you need to be moved.
  •  Request a copy of the mover's ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) Annual Performance Report. It is a requisite for Interstate movers to provide records of past performances and complaint handling procedures. They are also required to provide their moving customers with a copy of an ICC publication about your moving rights and responsibilities.
  • Help keeping down the cost of your moving, some good options are discarding unnecessary items before you request an estimate or if you have wanted a new washer, this could be the right time to upgrade to a new one.
  • There are three types of insurance coverage that are moving company’s standards. Ask your mover the prices all of these options so you can make an educated decision. Make sure you understand claims procedures.
    1. Basic Liability, usually 60 cents per pound per item, is often included at no additional cost, but it does not cover the full repair or replacement of any damaged item.
    2. Depreciated Value (or standard protection), an additional charge, insures your load based on the weight and value of your belongings; however, with this type of insurance, the mover is only responsible for the determined depreciated value of each item.
    3. Full Value Replacement provides the most complete coverage (full repair or replacement) however an additional fee is required. Some movers might offer a deductible option at a lower cost, but sometimes you might end up paying for small losses at the end.
  • When the moving truck or moving van arrives at your new place, be ready to pay for the moving costs so the moving team can unload your shipment. Check your inventory and mark any inconsistencies on the driver's inventory before you sign it. Note any damage to the outside of boxes.
  • Unpack any valuable items, such as silver or antiques, immediately.
  • Should you need the movers to unpack for you, inform them prior to delivery. Ask if they will dispose of empty boxes, wrapping paper, etc.
