Not making advanced moving arrangements

It is a big mistake to forgo, reserving a Moving team in advance of your long distance move. Advanced booking of a professional, moving team and planning of your move. Is absolutely essential in order to avoid stress. We recommend reserving remove as early as possible, especially during the busiest moving season of May until September.

Neglecting moving checklists

This will help reduce stress and ensure that all of your belongings are packed and deliver it to your new property in as organized and efficient manner as possible. Ask a member of our team for advice as to creating a moving checklist, as well as about our expert packing and unpacking services.

 

Pushing yourself too far during travel

If you make an extremely long distance move, will you recommend stopping along the way rather than driving yourself the full way in a single shot. If your drive to your new location is longer than eight hours, it is essential to incorporate some stops along the way in order to  stretch your body, as well as to possibly stay overnight in order to relax and recuperate. Driving extremely long distances in a single shot is stressful, and can be potentially dangerous. When you work with our expert moving team, you can rest assured that your belongings will be safely transported to your new property in as careful and manner as possible. This allows you to relax when you stay overnight halfway through the trip, and our expert moving technicians will stay in touch with you throughout every step of the process in order to update you about the location of your belongings. Additionally, if you will be flying to your new property, we recommend booking your flight as far in advance as possible, in order to avoid the additional expenses associated with last minute flight booking.

 

Forgetting an on-the-go kit

It’s important to keep a kit of essential items with you, while you are traveling to your new property. Keep these items secure in your vehicle as opposed to the moving truck. Some of these essential items include important documents, like drivers licenses, medical records, and passports; expensive items like jewelry, medication, phone, chargers, and additional layers or changes of clothing. If you are driving with children or pets, make sure to bring a game or toy to distract him. Additionally, make sure to bring light snacks and beverages along with you during your trip in order to stay comfortable. If you have an infant with you, remember to bring diapers, bottles, and formula.

 

Forgetting items that are prohibited for truck transport

Keep in mind that dangerous materials, like chemicals, explosives, or combustible gasses, cannot be transported in moving trucks. These items have to be disposed of according to local laws, as well as state and federal regulations in order to protect the environment. You don’t want to be forced to figure out a quick way to safely dispose of these items, and you certainly don’t want to illegally dispose of them, so it’s a good idea to figure out a way to dispose these substances, far in advance of your move, as opposed to having to scramble for a solution when your movers refuse to place these items in the truck.

 

Neglecting flexible scheduling

While our team is proud to provide highly targeted and organized, moving time tables, it’s a good idea to always have a Plan B for any unexpected weather, or travel circumstances. We are happy to provide flexible windows for transportation, assuring that you will receive your belongings in as prompt a manner as possible. However, make sure to let realtors, Super’s, or any essential personnel related to your brand new property know as soon as you experience some sort of delay, or weather based issue in order to keep them in the loop of any travel modifications.
