How to Avoid Headaches on Moving Day

1. Schedule your move with a moving company well in advance (30 days or more) of your moving date. Be sure the proper crew and moving truck are reserved. Remember the summer months are the peak moving season. The beginning and ending days of each month are also busy for licensed and insured long distance moving companies.

2. If you wish to save money and perform some of your own packing, buy professional packing supplies from the mover or another supplier. Your possessions can be damaged in transit if they are stored in inappropriate boxes and carriers.

3. Set aside enough time to perform your own packing well in advance of moving day.

4. Pack up a special "last on truck, first off truck" box. Include light bulbs, a flashlight, water, a favorite toy for children, one set of towels and linens, coffee pot, etc. You may want to take this "special box" with you in the car.

5. Visit the Official USPS Change of Address website ( and change your address, don't forget to turn off your utilities.

6. Dispose of all flammables, combustibles such as matches, aerosol cans, paint, thinner, etc. Drain all fuel from mowers and other equipment. Please be advised that most movers will not transport propane tanks in any condition.

7. If you are moving items of extraordinary value or antiques, obtain a written appraisal of such items to verify value. Avoid waxing or oiling wooden antiques and fine furniture before moving because some products may soften the wood, making it vulnerable to printing from furniture pads. Most consumers place their cash, credit card and jewelry in a safe place, and carry such items from the origin to destination on their persons.

8. Don't micro-manage the move. It's a good idea to stay nearby and to monitor what is going on. However, professional movers know what they are doing. They are specially trained to handle your personal goods with care and speed.

9. Be courteous and professional to the crew. They are moving your possessions. While it is not necessary to offer them water or sodas during the move, these acts of kindness are important for establishing a positive relationship with your moving team.

10. Keep a copy of all your documentation in the event it is necessary to file a damage claim.
