Look for a company with a good reputation, fair pricing, and proper licensing and insurance. You can also ask for recommendations from friends, family, or real estate agents.
It depends on the distance of the move, the amount of belongings you have, and the amount of time and effort you are willing to put in. In general, professional moves tend to be more expensive, but they also offer a level of convenience and peace of mind that DIY moves may not.
Make a list of your belongings, gather all necessary packing materials, and label your boxes clearly. You should also make arrangements for any special items, such as pets or plants.
Fragile items should be packed with extra care using bubble wrap or packing paper. It is also a good idea to label boxes containing fragile items as such.
You can pack your own boxes, but keep in mind that professional movers may have better quality packing materials and more experience properly securing items for transport.
Clearly label all boxes with the room they belong in and a brief description of their contents. This will make unpacking and organizing much easier.
This varies by company. Some movers may offer basic insurance as part of their services, while others may offer additional insurance for an additional fee. It is important to ask about insurance options and make sure you have adequate coverage for your belongings.
Your moving company should provide you with a inventory list of all items being transported. You can also take pictures of your belongings before they are packed to have a visual record.
