Home Moving: How Do I Start Planning a Move?

Let’s face it. Moving is a process very few people find enjoyable as it’s often time-consuming and stressful. Because our goal is to make your life easier, we’re here to provide you with all the information you’ll need to make your home moving go as smoothly and cost-effective as possible.

Calculate Your Moving Costs

First things first, let’s figure out the cost of your move! There are a lot of factors that go into calculating the final costs of your move, like whether you’re moving locally or moving long-distance –in other words, the distance of your move. Plus, if you decide to hire professional movers, the moving services you choose will also affect the final cost!

Calculate the Volume of Your Move

Let’s say you want to hire movers, it’d be good to know how much it would cost to move your stuff, right? Before you can start picking your moving services, we recommend that you first calculate the volume of your move!

To help you out with this, we’ve developed an interactive moving space calculator that lets you pick and choose from lists of furniture to approximate the weight of your move. Once you have this, it’ll be much easier to talk to moving companies since they’ll be able to give more accurate quotes!

Request moving quotes

When hiring movers, it’s best to get quotes from a few moving companies to compare. Keep in mind that an estimate is not the same as a quote –so be wary if a mover tries to give you just an estimate! If you’re looking to receive multiple quotes simultaneously, we’ve got a quote form that will give you 5 free moving quotes! No strings attached, and it beats having to contact five companies separately!

How Do I Compare Moving Companies?

Okay, once you have received the quotes, how do you decide which is the best moving company for you? When comparing movers, it’s likely that your eyes will go directly to the costs –but it’s important that you look beyond these! We usually recommend that, for each mover that contacts you, you evaluate the following extra points:

  • Moving services included in the quote:
    • Are packing and unpacking services included?
    • Is the transportation of fragile items correctly quoted?
    • Have (dis)assembly services been included in the quote?
    • What about insurance and storage?
  • Customer reviews;
  • Membership to moving associations;
  • Licenses and certifications.

What Should Be In My Moving Checklist?

Trying to remember all of the things you have to do before, during, and after a move should honestly be considered a sport –they don’t call it mental gymnastics for nothing! From transferring your utilities to getting your car registered, our handy moving checklists are here to help you with the remembering part!

Whether you’re moving locally or to another state, our national moving checklist will guide you through everything you need to get done starting 2 months before your moving date up to the first weeks in your new home!

Moving abroad? We got a checklist for that too! Our international moving checklist is tailored to include all the steps you need to take to make your international move as smooth as possible. We cover all the essentials from making sure you can get your prescriptions in your new country to getting a passport for your pet.

International Moving: Any Extra Tips?

Tip for international moves! Of course, moving abroad is bit trickier than moving within the U.S. Because we want your international home moving to go as smoothly as possible, we have some extra resources to help you, be sure to check them out!
