Common Moving Mistakes

How to make some extra money in a Move

There’s a ton of things to remember when you’re moving homes – and hiring the expert moving services of the team at Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage can help take all that responsibility off your plate, allowing you to rest easy in knowing that your move will be deftfully handled by professionals. Since moving requires so many different aspects, people who opt not to enlist professional assistance often make a few mistakes in overlooking important key points of moving; here’s a guide to some of the most common moving mistakes out there.

Going Over the Budget

It’s hard to anticipate the exact cost of a move – which is why many moving companies provide estimates rather than quotes. It’s still really important to get an estimate, especially an estimate of a particular range, as this can keep you within budget. Try to use a moving cost calculator that will determine the amount you will likely spend due to how much stuff you’re bringing versus the distance you are traveling in the move and packing materials.

Waiting Until Right Before the Move

If you are moving you might be distracted by reorganizing and packing certain rooms, wasting time until it’s right before the moving time and you’re not fully packed yet – leading to costly delays and potentially forgotten tasks. Create a moving checklist based on time and task priority in order to avoid this situation.

Not Getting Moving Insurance

Moving is risky business, which is why we always recommend getting moving insurance – or at the very least, valuation protection, in order to cover, or partly cover, the cost of items that may potentially be damaged during the moving process.

Bringing too Much to your New Home

If your new home is smaller than your last one, it’s likely that all of your belongings won’t fit in it, leading to a cramped and chaotic atmosphere. Avoid this by liquidating materials you don’t truly need to bring to your new home by holding a yard sale or donating it. Go room by room to decide what items you need to keep – check out the new Marie Kondo Netflix series for some fantastic pointers on tidying up and getting rid of clutter!
