Shopping for a professional mover is unlike most household projects. Planning to pack up and move out of your house requires just as much effort on your part as it does on the hired professionals, which is why Angie’s List has offered its own advice including important points to keep in mind as you begin the process.
Unlike hiring a roofer or a handyman to focus on one area of your home, contracting with a moving company requires consideration for your entire family’s possessions. With so many issues to think about it is no wonder that people can easily overlook important details until the last minute.
According to an Angie’s List article, “6 Tips for a Successful Move” professionals recommend planning as early as possible. Two weeks is often acceptable for local moves, but often times a month or more is necessary to book a move on a weekend or during the summer season.
In total, Angie’s List points to the following 6 important tips:
1. Develop a Master Plan
2. Get Started Early
3. Choose Your Moving Method
4. Make an Informed Hiring Decision
5. Keep Important Items Close
6. Pack Efficiently
