Why Hire Professionals Instead of Moving Yourself?
Packing everything you own to relocate to a new place can be a great adventure — and a huge undertaking. Just as you look forward to getting established in your new home, you know there are many tasks between now and then. From finding boxes to hauling them all into a truck to carrying heavy furniture to unpacking in your new place, there’s a lot to think about and do.
If you go it alone, you have to bear the brunt of this stress and its untold consequences on yourself and your household. Many people consider moving to be one of the most stressful experiences in life! This is why it pays to hire movers.
If you take advantage of professional apartment moving services, you don’t have to put yourself through the chaos and pressures of moving alone. Residential movers with years of experience can simplify and streamline your transition. In fact, based on your specific situation and needs, they can formulate a plan that helps you minimize problems and costs. The benefit of hiring professionals is having a smoother, more enjoyable moving experience.

How Can You Prepare for Moving Day?
First, try to book your movers as early as possible, especially if you’re planning to move during the busiest time of year, which is summer. At the least, schedule your moving day a full week in advance. Here are a few other important tips:
- Get your new renters’ insurance lined up: Once you know when you’re moving, talk to your insurance company about what date to end your current policy and start the new one (on your scheduled move-in day). Should anything unexpected happen — from property damage to a fire — you want to be covered for the financial burden.
- Confirm your move-in date: Double-check with your landlord to confirm the date you can access your new home. Should this date end up changing for any reason, contact your movers right away to schedule a new date.
- Get keys and important information: Find out when you will be receiving keys to your new apartment, and make sure you get them before move-in day. You don’t want to end up in a situation where the movers arrive and you can’t access the building. Likewise, find out which entrances/elevators should be used, where to park the moving truck, if there’s a service elevator, etc. Getting all these information ahead of time can save you a lot of stress.
What Other Tips Can Help You Enjoy a Smooth, Successful Move?
- Know what you’re moving: Most movers will give you an estimate on costs based on information you provide, so the accuracy of your inventory will determine the accuracy of your quote. Typically, you’ll have time to solidify this information; Moving of America gives you up to five days before move-in day to adjust your inventory details.
- Know about logistical challenges: Think carefully about any potential issues that could lead to upcharges. For example, are there multiple flights of stairs? Will movers need to carry furniture a long distance from the truck to your apartment door? The more information you can provide, the better.
- Provider proper payment info: Typically, movers require partial or total payment before your move-in day. At Moving of America, for example, we charge 100% of your final quote 48 hours before the actual move. To ensure everything goes smoothly, make sure you’ve provided accurate payment information.
- Pack an overnight bag: That first night in your new place, you might not be able to unpack all the various boxes that hold kitchen supplies, toiletries, clothes, etc. Make sure you set up an overnight bag that has essentials.
- Label everything: The better you label your boxes, the easier it will be to put everything in its proper place.
Like many events in life, moving is as stressful as you allow it to be — but with proper preparation and the assistance of a skilled moving team, you can enjoy a smoother, safer process. Check out our full list of moving tips here!
