The Top 5 Moving Mistakes Seen

moving mistakes

For those who are ready to move, there are several things that you need to learn before the big moving date. And one of the most important issues to look at, is the mistakes that have been made by others, so that you can learn from their mistakes. The more that you know about what can go wrong, the better you can prepare for these issues. In the end, it can result in a much easier and safer move!

  1. You try to move on your own without any help from professionals. When this is the case, you are going to find that moving is much harder than the movies make it look. That is why you should always consider a professional mover like Excel Moving. In the end, the cost averages are about the same, and you can avoid a lot of stress.
  2. You avoid getting moving insurance. We cannot stress this mistake enough. Moving insurance is meant to protect you if something was to happen. While we hope, nothing happens, there are always those little, unforeseen accidents.
  3. You did not take the time to de-clutter your home before you moved. Why is this important? Why pay us to move items that you are never going to use again? It can save you money and space in the long run.
  4. You avoided packing a survival kit for moving. With this, we are referring to a couple changes of clothing, medications and those little things that you may need while your items are being delivered to your new location.
  5. Once your belongings are delivered, you simply tell the movers where to put the boxes and never double check what was delivered. We always encourage our customers to double check those boxes that are delivered. This way, you are going to ensure that you are getting your items.

You do not want to be one of those who are making mistakes, rather than learning from the mistakes that are made by others. Take your time with moving and do your research so that you are fully prepared for whatever comes your way.
