Moving: When and Where To Start

Moving: where to start

While you are planning to move from one place to another, many things should be taken into consideration. One of the most important concerns is whether to move yourself or take the services form a reputed Chicago moving company. Take a wise decision considering several important factors.

Even though it is true that moving yourself can save a great deal of money, it takes much longer time. You have the complete responsibility to pack your belongings, find the vehicles to move with, load everything into it and finally unload and unpack everything. Throughout the process you will have proper control over the move and will give a chance to move the things at your own pace.

But on the other hand, if you decide to take the services from professional local movers, you will get more free time and don't have to exert yourself with the move. It may be true that hiring local movers would cost you more, but every extra buck you pay is worth it. There is also another option to use the Chicago movers simply to move the pre packed boxes and furniture alone.

Here the golden rule of thumb is that you must work out the details of your move like evaluate the distance, how many boxes you would have, weight of the items and transportation costs. Then compare it with the cost of moving alone and hiring the movers. Thus you would know what would suit you the most.

Moving: when to start

Even if you are moving across the town or across the state, planning in advance is the first thing you must do. That would make the move more convenient and efficient. If you are planning to hire professional like USA Moving and storage, make sure to contact them at least one months in advance. Reserving the local movers will ensure that the move goes well. While you plan packing, it is always better to donate items that are no longer in use since that would save money and space.

You must inform your friends and relatives of the move and give them their new address one month before the moving date. It is better to get boxes for packing and start packing with the less used items before one month itself. Go on with packing till one week before the move. Make sure to drain any items with flammable liquids and set date for disconnecting appliances. Disassemble all the items and make sure that all valuables are separated and ready to be securely moved on the day before the move. On the day of move, indicate the crew about the more important items for safety concerns.
