Top 3 Misconceptions When You Plan A Residential Move

Moving as a family can pose many stresses. Before you begin, it may feel like you’ve already begun mentally. With that being said, the mental anxiety and stress can be alleviated greatly when you plan everything strategically and organize every aspect the way you intended. So what are some misconceptions about movers and moving in general?

  • It Will Be Unorganized
  • Items Could Break
  • Friday Is The Best Time To Move

It Will Be Unorganized

Your next move may have you feeling like there is going to be some sort of messy part of the entire moving process. Eliminate that feeling from your  mind, sit back and relax. Our mover has organizational skills that will keep all your items in the same category, in the right room.

Items Could Break

Whether you have valuable items, fragile glass or other items, jewelry, antiques, etc.. When you hire a professional and experienced mover, you will find that you won’t have to worry about items being damaged or broken. Trained movers will know that if you have a valuable item, it will be marked and additional precautions will be taken. This can include adding foam, bubble wrap, extra cushion, and even double boxing/custom wrapping.

Friday Is The Best Time To Move

If you feel as if you have the entire weekend to move and unpack so that you can adjust to your new place outside of work weeks, then yes that is a great advantage. However, everyone else that needs a mover or U-Haul truck/van are assuming the same. This can lead to high premiums for moving help. To resolve this, simply book the moving date as far in advance as possible.


Mistakes That Can Occur During Any Type Of Move

When planning for a move, you may think about all the things that can go right. Missing aspects of what could go wrong or how to improve. While planning, avoid these top 3 mistakes that can happen during your move:

Doing it Yourself

Save the trouble. You will save a tremendous amount of time and money when you have friends or relatives to come out and help you. Avoid controlling or micromanaging and allow the kids to pack themselves. Moving is a team effort.

Not Planning in Advance

We recommend that you plan your move as soon as you can. This is typically up to 6 months or even more in advance. Organizing everything out will give you plenty of time to discuss inventory of all items, additional appliances, booking dates, changing out addresses, etc..

Hire A Reliable Moving Company

A reliable moving company such as Advantage Express will offer free quotes, fair pricing, and even discounts from time to time. Ask your moving company about a free quote or a free estimate. Whether you feel comfortable giving your phone number out to a moving company, should determine how much you trust them before even contacting them.
