Common Moving Day Mistakes
- Always hire a reputable moving company. Chasing after the cheapest price is tempting, but, when the other guy sounds too good to be true, it is usually too good to be true. One takes the risk of having the prices sky rocket on the day of the move when hiring a not reputable and licensed company. Worst of all, these companies might hold your belongings hostage until paid in full.
To avoid that, always check for a license and reviews.
- Procrastinating. It’s important to get moving supplies and start packing as soon as possible. Getting supplies and packing early on can help save time and pressure. Starting things out early also lets you break the sometimes overwhelming task of packing into small portions.
- If you’re moving valuables, always be sure to be insured properly. Almost all moving companies default insurance is based on weight. Using this math, a $2000 ultra light weight led TV will be worth can easily be insured for approximately $20 dollars. That’s why, based on your moving needs, you’ll might want an extended insurance option. As far as Irreplaceable items are concerned, these should always be carried by you, because no insurance in the world could ever replace them.
