4 Tips that will help you with your moving process

There are a few things you need to have in mind when the time comes to move out. While the excitement of going somewhere new could be a lot of fun, trust me when I tell you that when you have to organize and prepare to put your entire life in cardboard boxes and container trucks, things can get very overwhelming, very quickly. But don’t start feeling overwhelmed just yet! Here are some tips to guide you through your moving!
- Choose wisely when selecting a professional mover

Don’t be fooled by movers promising they will provide the lowest rates in town whilst giving you a estimated fare; you will end up paying a lot more than you may have thought. Here at Packing Service Inc., we will provide you with a GUARANTEED flat rate quote. That means what you had in mind before is what you will end up paying when the job is done. We will provide the best services possible when it comes to packing, loading, crating, and shipping.
- Develop a plan before you move
Sit down with your spouse or family and develop a plan or a “to-do” list. This will avoid all the stress in the middle of the moving process. Create a plan for packing, decide on what you are taking and/or leaving behind, make all the necessary arrangements with your service provider, and contact your moving company. Avoid all the moving stress with preparation. Maybe you will need to pack and Palletize your belongings in pallets, or create custom wooded crates for your fragile items. Just make sure you are prepared and plan for any issues .
- Get started early on your move
Moving can be very overwhelming. It is a long and often stressful undertaking. The best way to go is to get started as soon as possible with your moving process, sometimes you have to call your new apartment management in advance to let them know that exactly which day you will be coming in. Sometimes, you need to book in advance with your moving company; don’t let this cause any extra stress by waiting until the last minute. Get started early.
- Pack and carry valuable items yourself
Whether you are being helped by your friends or family, or you hired professional movers to do the job, it is recommended that you always pack and transport extremely valuable and priceless items personally. Items such as passports, birth certificates, social security cards, things of sentimental value, or other such items will be better cared for by you than any other person.
