The event may seem daunting and stressful for common Americans. Sometimes it may seem a bit difficult even to survive it. However, if your house move in Los Angeles or Chicago is properly scheduled and planned, it’ll be smooth and easy. Just be well-organized, available within the agreed hours, in a good mood and, certainly trust the reliable moving experts you’ve selected.
According to the moving statistics, the busiest moving periods are in summer, during the weekends and holidays. Thus, the busiest moving month in 2016 was June, as 38.2% of people moved within the summer season. The busiest day for relocations is Friday (19.7% of residential and office moves). Therefore, to book the most attractive moving day and time, do it in beforehand. All movers and trucks can be already scheduled for the period. Additionally, the rates for packing, loading and moving services for the busy days and seasons may be 5-10% higher than during the other times.
Things that are to be Already Done
Proper planning is half the forthcoming battle. Our reliable and accurate movers you’ve hired will care about multiple moving aspects. You are just recommended to make some preliminary arrangements:
- clean up your old house;
- get rid of the old, unneeded items and trash;
- fix the lighting fixtures and equipment that are broken;
- check that the keys are available;
- agree with the house owners about the inspection;
- make your new house floor plan;
- have the moving checklist drawn up;
- discuss all uncommon issues with our friendly and competent professionals;
- separate the essentials and hazardous items;
- defrost the fridge;

- eliminate all distractions.
Regardless of the moving options you select, most of your cherished belongings are to be already packed. You can order our affordable unpacking and packing services or sort your personal items, making an inventory by yourself. Therefore, the professional or improvised packing materials are supplied several days or weeks before the residential move. Make photos of your furniture, cartons and all your stuff. Additionally, realizing that the moving day is supposed to be tiring and long, prepare some snacks and drinks for all your family members, some food and water for your pets.
The Traveling Essentials
Our courteous and well-trained movers treasure your memories and deliver your dear possessions carefully and accurately. Meanwhile, there are some items you are to deliver by yourself, for example, jewelry, family heirlooms and sensible electronics. Combustible and flammable items such as gas or car batteries are not allowed for transportation at all. So, make a detailed list of the essentials and hazardous items and consult it while sorting or packing the stuff.
Prepare the items you need on the way. They definitely are to include:
- smartphones and charging devices for them;
- cleaning supplies;
- kid’s and pet’s items;
- snacks, water and utensils.
A flashlight and some tools such as a hammer or a screwdriver may be necessary for your new house. If you order our comprehensive unpacking, furniture moving and assembly services, your basic possessions are arranged within the several first hours on arrival. However, you might have to clean the rooms or fix some fixtures in the new apartment. Additionally, you are to look after your dear kids and pets properly. It’s advisable to hire a babysitter for the day and leave the dog or cat with your relatives or friends for several hours, at least.
Long Distance Move Specials
Moving to another state that is several hundred or thousand miles away, you are to be prepared for the long trip. Think about your pets’, kids’ and pot flowers’ proper transportation. Take some food and beverages with you, find good restaurants on the way. The need to find an accommodation in an enroute city or your new town for several nights may be caused by weather conditions, some delays, you wish to see the sights, etc. For example, the house may be not ready for living yet.
So, you are to:
- book the hotel rooms in beforehand;
- have a suitable interactive map on hand;
- pack a suitcase with personal items and some clothing;
- have a flexible, open-ended timeline, planning for the weather and unforeseen circumstances.
