Advance Planning Avoids Moving Headaches

Moving can be stressful – and expensive. Before you call a moving company, here are some things to think about. Careful planning could save you a bundle and keep your stress level in the normal range.

* Are you going to hire professionals to do all your packing and unpacking? This is the method of choice for most people. And the most expensive. Make sure you know exactly where each piece of furniture will be going in the new house. Movers aren’t going stand around while you decide where to put things.

* Make sure you’ve de-cluttered before you get a quote for moving all your stuff. You don’t want to pay a moving fee for things that end up at the dump.

* If you think you can handle some of the move yourself, consider renting a Pack Rat or PODS container. Both these companies rent containers you can pack yourself. They can also provide moving pads and muscle power. When your container is full, give them a call and they"ll take it off to their storage facility. As soon as you’re installed in the new place, call them up and they’ll deliver your container to your new home. This system works really well if you have the time to move in stages.
