Questions to ask before moving to new place

Moving to a place is exhausting. Packing and unpacking all the house items and setting them on their designated site is time-consuming and tiring. Since everyone is busy with their demanding schedules, gathering all the stuff and placing them in boxes seems impossible. Therefore, many people choose professional companies to look after their moving process. Moving companies are responsible for packing and unpacking all the house items.

Here we discuss some critical questions that come into our minds while looking for a moving company.

When do you pay for a move?

The answer to this question is that customers pay the moving company after the move. Once the moving process is complete, the clients have to pay the company for their services. After completing the moving process, an honest and reliable company will ask for their payment.

What should you not pack during moving?

Following are some items you should not pack while moving.

  • Lighter fluid
  • Household cleaners
  • Fertilizer
  • Perishables
  • Car Batteries
  • Ammunition
  • Moving Documents
  • Jewellery
  • Cash and Other Valuables

When should you call movers?

It is better to call them as soon as you plan your move. Although stuff loading may not occur immediately, it is always better to contact the company at least six weeks before moving. The more time you give them to manage things, the better.

Informing them beforehand will help them deliver you what you require. All moving companies need moving dates and other information to plan the move efficiently. They will come to your place, pack all the needed items, and then load them on their truck on the day of moving out. Therefore, it is better to inform them a few weeks before your moving date so that they have enough time to plan the entire process.

How long does it take to move?

The time depends on weather conditions, time of the year, size of shipment, the time needed to load and offload items, and distance to the destination. Most of the time, all furnishings cannot fit in the truck at a time; therefore, it is necessary to wait until the first shipment is offloaded. It may require additional time as each truck is carefully loaded and unloaded.

How can you make your moving days easier?

Here we have a few tips to make your moving days easier.

  • Do not empty your drawers
  • Use pots to hold smaller items.
  • Hang your clothes
  • Wrap plastic wrap around things that may spill
  • Pack your suitcases
  • Label your boxes or colour-code them
  • Take pictures of the items while placing them in the box

Is there a checklist for moving?

Well, there is no specific checklist. However, it is better to pack all non-essential items of the house before. These items may include home décor, books, and electronic items that do not use frequently. Once you have packed them, pack essentials. These may consist of dinnerware, toiletries, clothes, kitchen items, and other items you may need inside the house until the last day.
