Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For many of us, moving is not fun. In fact, even the simplest of relocations could include some anxiety.

Though, whenever something goes horribly bad on moving day, it is easy to feel like your world is arriving at an end. Instead of suffering through this kind of disaster, it's so more desirable to plan for those contingencies.

Here are several typical moving day problems, and the way it is possible to stay away from them:

Your Home Furniture Won't Fit

After driving for countless hours to Little Rock, you ultimately arrive at your new home... only to discover that you cannot push the couch through the front door. That will be a significant letdown, plus a huge cause of anxiety.

Solution: Measure your large furniture pieces for all their dimensions. Make sure to assess what you take note of with the measurements of your new residence, along with your new house's entrances.

Your Travel Plans Fall Through

In the event you hold off until the very last second to make travel accommodations (like lodging reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a friend or two to assist you to transport your belongings) it's increasingly probable that they will fall through, and you will be left rushing.

Solution: Try to prepare your travel accommodations a minimum of four weeks in advance. Set up reminders for yourself if you have to.

Things are Broken in Transit

It can be among life's most discouraging experiences to finally get to your new residence, open up the moving truck's gate... and discover that many of your loved possessions have been decreased to shattered pieces dispersed in the boxes.

Solution: In most cases, inappropriate packing practices tend to be the origin of harm received in transit. Employ suitable packing containers and cartons for each delicate item that you will be taking. Be sure to employ plenty of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is required to protect and support your belongings during the move. Or, you can always ask your professional mover in Little Rock for help packing items. Most moving companies can pack as much or as little as you need.

You Find Yourself Shelling out Much More than You Expected

A few days ahead of the move, you discover that your wallet is going to take a greater hit than you originally believed. The moving company in Little Rock is billing you a higher rate for their help.

Solution: Many moving companies do charge increased charges for "last minute support." To acquire the preferred rates, never procrastinate: reserve your move as far beforehand as you can and always obtain a written quotation from the moving company in Little Rock you choose.

In Part 2 of the Moving Disasters blog posts, we will focus on more concerns that may throw a wrench into your moving plans and ways to prevent such troubles. Stay tuned for more!

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
