New Home, Now What?- Moving Tips Part 3


When it comes to moving, there is one thing about packing that does not compare to the stress and strain in physically moving your items to their new destinations. The American Dream not only has the keys to a simple home buying and selling experience, but we also have a few tips that will help make your transition into your new home a bit easier.



Tip 1: Find A Mover

Using your own or a friend’s truck or vehicle to help you move is not a bad idea. If you can call on a reliable friend, neighbor, or family member to help you move, you may be able to make a lot of progress in a short amount of time. 

Hiring a professional moving company is also a great option. When hiring a moving company to help you relocate, make sure that you book your service in advance to avoid the frustration of delays. 

Tips 2: Find a Reliable Moving Company

Unfortunately, there are moving scams out there. Do your research or ask around for recommendations and reviews for the best or most trustworthy moving companies in your location. 

Tip 3: Take Pictures of Your Items Before the Move

When working with professional moving companies, it is a smart idea to take pictures of your belongings before moving. These pictures will be your “pre-damage photos” in the case of anything becoming damaged in the moving process. If and when an incident occurs, your mover’s insurance will cover the damages at the sight of proof.

Tip 4: Make Room for More

If you are planning to have new items shipped to your new home, there is no need to go through the trouble of filling your storage unit or future home with items you have no plans of using. To make things easier for you and your movers, consider giving it away to someone who needs it or putting it up for sale.
