Take a look.
- Set up the date for your move
Choosing a moving date is quite tricky due to several things that needs to be put into consideration.
A suitable moving date has to conform to the specifics of the season. Scheduling your move during the summer will likely guarantee you good weather. However, summer tends to be the busiest time for top movers, which will probably mean higher rates too. On the other hand, deciding to move during the winter might give you a lower rate, but don’t forget to put winter hazards into consideration as well.
In all, having a specific date will give you a push and help you plan your move in a timely and organized manner.
- Look for a Reliable Moving Company

- Use Weekly Milestones
One Month Before the Move;
- Organize your documents
Get a brightly colored binder that won’t get misplaced easily, and use it to pack all your personal and move-related documents. Also, start informing your service providers. If you have a child or children, inform their school about the move so they can start preparing the transfer and other necessary paperwork.
- Create an Inventory List
A perfect and organized move means moving only what you need. Your current home is probably filled with unused or outdated items you need to donate, sell or dispose off. This will help your moving process go smoother and help you avoid filling your home with unnecessary things.
However, if time doesn’t permit you to do all these yourself, you can turn to Captain Moving for assistance. We can assist you with every packing needs, and we also offer complete and partial packing services.
- Search for New Service Providers
Start looking for new service providers in your new address and ensure all your utilities are up and running before you get there.
- Take Pictures of the Items
Attempt to label all the boxes per room to help you stay organized when you or your movers are unloading. Also, remember to take pictures of all the items you’ll be placing in the box.
Welcome the movers on the move day and have them start the packing of the boxes into their moving van. The process will be monitored by our movers to ensure the boxes reach their destination as scheduled, but you should also be around to facilitate the moving process and answer any questions your movers have.
