Guide to moving

The key to a simple relocation that is as free as possible from stress is successful organization.  Moving locally means relocating within the same state, while an interstate move means making a move to another state.  You can choose to use a moving company for a full service move, which includes the packing of your belongings and then the transportation to your new abode.

If budget is a consideration, you may wish instead to pack your belongings on your own, hire a truck and make the move to your new home yourself, or have the moving company move your items but do the packing yourself.  The latter may be a little more expensive that moving yourself entirely, but certainly cuts down on stress and fatigue.

Depending on your requirements, the moving company may provide you with a couple of weatherproof boxes that you can use to do your own packing.  A professional moving company will then pick up the boxes and move them to your new place of residence, where they can be unpacked at your leisure.  Your belongings will be kept safe during the move and cannot become mixed up with items belonging to anyone else.

Choosing the moving company that is right for you is one of the most important decisions in the entire move.  Be sure to get quotes for the move from a minimum of three different moving companies and then compare them before coming to a decision, as well as doing research on the companies’ reputation.
