101 Moving: Tips To Help You Make A Stress-Free Move

This 101 moving guide will help you to make a hassle-free move with your family. Make a checklist for moving, which will remind you about the steps you need to take in the weeks before you relocate.

Sort your possessions into different categories: the items you want to take with you, sell, donate to charity, and discard. You can arrange a garage sale for the items that can be sold.

If you are planning to do the packing yourself, buy professional quality boxes for moving and start packing non-essential items as soon as you decide to relocate. Packing is much easier if you do it gradually and pack a few moving boxes every day.

Use color-coded labels to ensure that your moving boxes will be placed in the right rooms in your new home. List the contents of each box on the label.

Make a floor plan of your new home and mark the positions where you want your furniture and appliances to be placed. Provide a copy of the floor plan to the movers.

Collect all papers related to your move in a folder. Bills, receipts, and distance logs related to your move may help you to claim a relocation expenses tax deduction.

International Movers
It's a tough thing but the international moving companies are here to make things easier for you.

Start looking for a suitable mover well before moving day. This will give you enough time to check the credentials and reputation of the moving companies, and to make sure that they are licensed and insured. The moving service will also get enough time to make arrangements for your move.

Obtain moving company quotes in writing from a few service providers. Look for a service provider with a good track record, instead of making a selection only on the basis of the lowest bid. If you get a moving quote that seems to be unrealistically low, watch out for hidden charges.

Full service moving may be the most convenient moving option for you, because the movers will pick up your possessions from inside your old home and deliver them inside you new home. Full service movers will also do the packing and unpacking for an extra fee.

If you cannot afford a full service move, you can consider self service moving, which is cheaper and very convenient. The home movers will drop a weather-resistant moving container at your home in which you can pack your possessions. The container will be collected and dropped at your new home, where you can unpack your things.

Self service moving is much more convenient than loading your things in a rented moving truck and driving to the destination, or booking your possessions as freight.
