Top Ten Things You Need to Know About Moving Season

1. Plan Ahead

Moving season, typically between May and September, is a busy time for moving companies. Plan your move well in advance to secure your preferred moving date.

2. Get Multiple Estimates

Prices can vary significantly between moving companies. Get estimates from multiple companies to ensure you’re getting the best deal.

3. Declutter Before You Pack

Moving is a great opportunity to declutter. Before you start packing, go through your belongings and decide what you really need to take with you.


4. Pack Smart

Proper packing can prevent damage to your belongings. Use sturdy boxes, and don’t overload them. Wrap fragile items in bubble wrap or packing paper.


5. Label Your Boxes

Labeling your boxes with their contents and their destination room can make unpacking much easier.

6. Keep Important Documents Handy

Keep important documents, such as your moving contract and new lease or mortgage papers, in a safe place where you can easily access them.

7. Notify Important Parties of Your Move

Don’t forget to notify important parties, such as your utility companies, post office, and insurance providers, of your move.

8. Prepare for Moving Day

Make sure everything is packed and ready to go on moving day. If you’re using a moving company, confirm the arrival time of the movers.

9. Take Care of Your Movers

If you’re using a moving company, remember to provide refreshments for your movers and consider tipping them for their hard work.

10. Unpack Strategically

Start by unpacking essentials, such as bedding and kitchen items. Then, you can take your time unpacking the rest of your belongings.

Moving season can be stressful, but with proper planning and preparation, you can make your move a smooth one. Contact Safe Ship Moving today for help with your next move.
