Planning a move, no matter the distance, can be a stressful undertaking. However, the moving process can be simple and quick when done right. By preparing ahead you will ensure your whole move is smooth and successful. When dealing with a furniture moving company there are some things you can do to make their process and interaction with you easier.
Preparing for the move
This is the time to purge and simplify. Before you pack up everything, go through and sort into four categories; trash, garage sale, donate, and keep. If it is broken or torn, trash it. Have a garage sale for items you don't want or need. Donate items that you cannot sell. Then you are ready to pack your belongings.
Think about the space you are moving into. Imagine the best way to arrange your furniture in it. Also, take note of what room items will go in and what items are not needed right away. This way you can direct the unloading process.
When scheduling your moving date, choose and hire your furniture moving company as far in advanced as possible to have a a greater chance of availability. Although moving companies are ready for last minute moves as well.
