Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For many of us, moving will never be enjoyable. Actually, even the easiest of relocations may have a bit of anxiety.

However, if something goes unbelievably wrong on moving day, it is easy to believe that your world is arriving at an end. As opposed to suffering through this type of disaster, it's so far better to prepare for all contingencies.

Here are several common moving day mishaps, and ways in which you can prevent them:

Your Household Furniture Doesn't Fit

Upon driving for what feels like forever to Wichita Falls, you finally get to your new home... only to realize that you cannot push the sofa through the entry way. That is a significant letdown, plus a massive source of stress.

Solution: Measure your large pieces of furniture for all their specifications. Make sure you assess what you record with the proportions of your new home, along with your new house's entrances.

Your Travel Arrangements Fall Through

In case you delay until the last minute to make travel arrangements (such as lodging reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a friend or two that may help you transport your things) it's increasingly possible that they will fall through, and you will be left rushing.

Solution: Make an effort to organize your travel arrangements a minimum of thirty days beforehand. Set reminders for yourself if you must.

Items are Broken while in transit

It could be one of life's most disheartening experiences to ultimately arrive at your new home, open the moving truck's gate... and find that many of your valued possessions are lessened to shattered parts dispersed in the boxes.

Solution: In many instances, inappropriate packing methods are the root cause of harm received on the road. Utilize suitable containers and boxes for each fragile thing that you are moving. You'll want to employ a good amount of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is necessary to protect and cushion your belongings all through the move. Or, you could ask your professional mover in Wichita Falls for help packing items. Many moving companies will pack as much or as little as you'll need.

You End Up Paying Much More than You Anticipated

A few days prior to the move, you find out that your wallet is going to take a more substantial hit than you formerly thought. The moving company in Wichita Falls is charging you a higher charge for their service.

Solution: Many moving companies do bill higher charges for "last minute assistance." To get the best rates, do not delay doing things: reserve your move as far ahead of time as possible and always get a written quotation from the moving company in Wichita Falls you pick.
