We here at Augusta Movers understand that moving can be an exciting experience, especially when you have hired a moving company and are ready to get right into the process. As excited as you may be, there are certain things that we advise you avoid when trying to move out. If you are aware of these mistakes, you will most likely have a much easier and better time moving.

Don’t Move During The Busy Season

In the moving industry, it is the most common to move in the summer. This is because there is a less chance of stormy weather and cold temperatures to have to deal with when you are walking in and out of the home. We recommend however, that you do not move during the summer. Why, you ask? Because moving during the busy time of the season is much more difficult as well as expensive. You can be saving hundreds of dollars if you decide to move during a quieter time in the season. 

Fragile Items Deserve Your Attention!

Packing these sorts of items last minute can lead to a disaster down the road with a constant time crunch, full of stress and unnecessary worry. It is very important that you make sure to pack fragile items early in the process of moving. Why? Because fragile items deserve a larger amount of thoughtfulness and attention due to the risk of them breaking during the moving. Make sure you have the right equipment (as well as enough of it) to ensure that it is fully protected, no matter if it slides or bumps inside the moving truck/car. 

Leave Some Things Behind

It’s likely that not everything you own has a significant sentimental value. We know that in an ideal situation, you could transfer every single thing from your home into the other, but this is not the reality. Picking out which items stay and which ones go opens up a wide opportunity to do a thorough cleaning of your home, getting rid of anything and everything that deems itself as unnecessary. Moving into a new home indicates a fresh new start, so going through your items and leaving some things behind will help your new home feel much fresher and roomy.

Do Your Research When Hiring A Moving Company

Settling for one answer without looking anywhere else is usually a bad idea. Oftentimes, you can find much better prices, quality, and customer support with other companies out there. In the same breath, looking for the lowest price can see itself as a problem. This is because sometimes, a company will spare its quality at the expense of the price. Make sure to look at their insurance and liability claims, as well as their reputability as a company. This will determine what other people think of the company, as well as how it ranks on the scale of professionalism. 

Don’t Do Everything Yourself

Moving is a very complicated and meticulous process. Much like cutting down a tree, you would not do the job yourself because it poses a huge struggle and risk of safety. Hiring a reliable moving company to do a lot of the work for you will help ease your stress and take a lot of the heavy work off your shoulders; this is where we come in.
