Moving can be a major headache, but with the right moving tips you will be feeling a spirit of thankfulness instead of stress. When you work with a professional moving company, tasks that seemed overwhelming and difficult become easy. Keep reading for the three moving tips that will make you feel more than thankful this year.
If you have ever gone through a move where you resorted to throwing things in boxes to get the job done, you know how problematic that strategy is. By having a packing system in place, you can avoid chaos and will know exactly where things should go as you pack and where to find them when you unpack. The right strategy will involve labeling boxes and organizing what will go where before you pack a single item. Then, on move-in day, you will simply unpack the correct boxes for each room and make yourself at home.
By researching or visiting your new town in advance, you’ll be able to scope out all of the most important spots. Find out where the post office is, the grocery store, the pharmacy, and, most importantly, the coffee and pizza shops, so you won’t have to spend time figuring it out when you get there.
Perhaps the most important tip to be thankful for is lining up an experienced moving company to handle the job for you. The right team will save you tremendous amounts of time and effort and ensure your items arrive at their destination safely and in a timely fashion. You can focus on letting you and your family adjust to your new home and let them handle the rest.

If you are planning a cross-country move, follow these four foolproof tips to make the move as smooth as possible.
A cross-country move will really test your mettle. Here are four foolproof tips to make the task a bit easier.
The better organized you are, the better off you'll be. Begin at least three months ahead, if possible, by making or downloading checklists. Get estimates from moving companies and plan the moving dates. Also, it's time to begin to collect moving materials and start to go through your belongings.
Now is the time to clean out those closets, drawers, the basement, garage, and attic. The cost of a long-distance move depends on weight – and everything weighs something. If you don't love it, haven't used it, or don’t need it, then don’t take it. Make piles in each room labeled donate, discard, or pack. That way, when it comes time to pack you will have already gone through everything.
Cost is a factor, but the cheapest isn’t necessarily best. Do plenty of research and ask lots of questions before you make your final decision. A cross-country move is stressful enough without having to deal with a scam or inexperienced movers.
Will your new home be smaller or a different style than your current one? Perhaps that oversized sectional couch just won’t fit in your new home. Decide NOW not to take it. Maybe you’ll have less wall space to hang pictures. Will the kitchen have enough storage space for all those appliances you seldom use? Be thoughtful about what you take with you.
When there is a cross-country move in your future, call us at Nilson Van & Storage for expert advice and a free estimate. We’ll give you peace of mind knowing that your precious belongings are in secure hands.
To reduce the stress of moving, always hire professional movers to do the job right.
You're moving! There are so many things to do. Here's why hiring professional movers should be one of the first decisions you make.
Unless you are moving into a dorm or your first apartment, you probably have more heavy furniture than your friends or family want to handle. Not to mention that the last question friends want to hear is the “do you want to help me move?”
Professional movers have the training and experience to squeeze your sofa through the doorway and up and down the stairs without damaging the sofa or the doorway. Can you say the same for Uncle Bob?
Professional moving companies carry insurance against damage to your belongings or injury to one of your moving professionals. If your cousin drops your framed diploma, is she going to give you $300 to have it redone?
Things have a way of disappearing during a move. A moving company will inventory your belongings and compensate you for any losses, should the need arise.
By the time you have purchased all the packing material, boxes, and tape required for packing, you probably have saved very little. You could use that time to organize your things for the move.
There are times when furniture needs dismantling. Bed frames, dressers, mirrors, TVs, and light fixtures are just a few of the things that need taking down or apart. Professional movers bring the proper tools to handle all these situations. They also bring dollies, blankets, rollers, and hoists to get delicate or heavy pieces loaded and unloaded.
No matter how organized you are, moving is stressful. For peace of mind, security, and reliability, always hire professional movers. For more information on moving services, call Nilson Van & Storage today to speak with one of our friendly specialists.
