Getting Your Move Going
The movie Inside Out wonderfully depicts the troubles that come with moving, with the most prominent scene being Riley and her family at the new home but their moving truck not arriving on time, so they have to spend the night without their clothes and other supplies. This is a sad, funny, but common scenario that plays out with a lot of people, so if you have been through this, we empathize. If you want to ensure this does not happen to you again, or in case you have been fortunate so far and want to keep that streak going, you need a good moving company. So, ask around people you know for recommendations, and if you want more options, you can check out Y’all Call I Haul.
A good moving company that is transparent about all of its charges, and gives you a fixed approximation for how long the moving company will take to reach your new home is necessary. In the case of moving within the same area or city, your moving company should ideally get your stuff transported within the same day. Try to get a concrete date listed on your contract. Also, make sure that the company is ensured so that you and your things are protected.
It does not matter if you are moving three blocks down or across the country, you need to keep overnight bags with you. This is a precautionary step for people moving inside the same city, but it especially necessary for long-distance moves. You want your bags to contain a change of clothes or two, your tooth brush, toothpaste, and other essentials you might need to be able to make it a day or two without everything else. For long-distance moves, you want to carry bigger bags since moving companies can take anywhere between a few days or a week to get your stuff to your new location.
