Moving can be very stressful, even in the best of circumstances, but making major mistakes in the process can make it even worse. Before you dive in, take notice of these three major mistakes most people make when moving, so you can avoid them.
Mistake #1: Waiting Until the Last Minute
Preparing for a move almost always takes longer than you think it will. Don’t wait until the last minute to start planning and packing. Waiting can leave you scrambling to get everything done before the moving van arrives.
Mistake #2: Hiring an Inexperienced Moving Company
The best way to get an accurate quote, great customer service, and a safe, well-managed move is by hiring an experienced moving company. Going with whoever is cheapest is not necessarily your best option. You put your budget, your belongings, and your sanity on the line when you go with an unknown.
Mistake #3: Doing it Yourself
When you’re in college, it’s easy to move yourself from your dorm to your first apartment, but there comes a point when moving yourself is a big mistake. First of all, as you get older, friends are much less willing to haul your furniture around. Second, as you build a family and a home, you have more belongings that require moving, and more valuables that need protection and proper packing. Third, you want insurance protection and liability coverage that only a professional moving company can offer.
