Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 2

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

Moving to El Paso really doesn't need to be hectic and bring you to the border of an anxiety attack. This isn't to say it's really a time of Zen in your life, although with a little preparation and more secondary preparing, your move can be successful, and you'll stay sane.

Here are several more moving problems which takes the enjoyment out of your move, and how to steer clear of them.

Work With A Reputable Moving Company Now

The minute you are aware of your new address, start finding moving companies. It's not the time to cheap out by means of 1 or 2 fellas and a beat-up truck--splurge on a professional mover in El Paso. They will provide the following, and you can now cross these chores from your checklist.

· Well-maintained equipment--moving vans which go through normal service (check-ups, tire rotation, brake inspections) and are completely road-worthy

· Professional teams which have learned how to wrap, load, set pieces of furniture in the truck, and reverse the system at your new house.

· An insured crew and equipment--if a mover gets injured, the moving company in El Paso takes care of their healthcare costs

· Professional packing should you be simply overloaded. Should you need a few specialty things packed or crated, they'll manage that for you, so you're able to rest assured your valuable items will get there without damage.

· Ask for a list of the things they are unable to by law move--chemicals, plants, and paint are on that list, to name a few. You wouldn't want to learn at the last minute that your cherished bonsai plant must stay behind.

· Count on a contract and an itemized quote.

· Be sure your mover has a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) license.

Hire the Crew, Also

All your chums say, of course, they'll help you load the moving truck. Which can be great--if you happen to be moving locally and they can assist you unload, too. Also, if you're prepared to chance injury, scheduling issues, and other moderate obstacles to your moving day.

Hiring professional movers in El Paso assures a team who gets there promptly, understands what they're executing, can drive the truck, and you're able to rely on to handle your things correctly. They will also unload all your stuff and set it in the new home--and that could be well worth the price.

Move What You Love and Actually Use

The "if-you-haven't-worn-it-in-six-months-get-rid-of-it" principle really does apply when you're moving. Take into account that every single carton you pack and move contains some cost related to it, and that adds up quick when you find yourself looking at many boxes. Remove outdated linens, kitchen devices, toys and games, pieces of furniture--everything that you don't use, aren't keen on, or do not need.

There Is A Blizzard Coming--or a Hurricane

The one thing even the most prepared amongst us cannot control is the weather. Look at the forecast and employ a Plan B in the event you happen to be stuck in terrible rain, snowfall, or gusts of wind. Discuss with the moving company in El Paso a couple of days in advance if it seems dangerous to pack up and drive and reschedule if you must. If you're moving a long distance, book hotel accommodations along the way. Your real estate professional should understand if you're unable to be out of the residence on time; terrible weather impacts everybody, so the new occupants are not going to have the ability to get there either. Do not attempt to beat the weather event--they usually win. Moving companies will not risk their workers or equipment in dangerous weather; the great thing is that it normally passes by in a day or two.

Place the Pets in Daycare

Your family pets know when you're troubled, add to that the disappearing stuff and they can definitely get upset. Board your pets the day before the movers come and pick them up on your way out of town. Load up their beds, food, water, and toys for the journey and make them your last task.

Now buckle up, relax, and appreciate a disaster-free ride to your new house.
