What is mover help really? Mover Help is a blog to help the average consumer learn all about preparing, planning and performing a move. The first helpful moving tips are usually the first thing people look up – the good ole’ moving checklist. This is really the only moving checklist you will need. It will prepare you for from up to 6 weeks before your move. I suggest clicking the checklist link for a comprehensive list or here is a quick download of a shortened version:
Another useful tool that I have found when you are planning a move is a moving company comparison form. Of course, first you have to decide if you are going to move yourself or not – but that’s another post. Frankly, unless you are just starting out and don’t have “real furniture” I always recommend hiring a mover. Why? To ensure the furniture you just purchased arrives at your new home unscathed. If you choose a good mover – one with full time labor, licensed and insured, etc. they should come with shrink wrap to wrap all upholstered items as well as thick moving blankets to protect wooden and metal items. When comparing movers, I suggest using the printable compare movers form from Monster Movers. It gives a run down of pertinent questions to ask any movers that you may be considering.
