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

Moving to Wichita Falls often does not have to be hectic and take you to the fringe of a nervous breakdown. It's not to say it's really a period of Zen in your life, but with a little preparation and then some secondary planning, your move shall be positive, and you will remain sane.

The following are some more moving catastrophes that can take the pleasure out of your move, and how to prevent them.

Work With A Trustworthy Moving Company Now

The minute you confirm your new address, commence interviewing moving companies. This is not the time to cheap out by using a couple of fellas along with a run down truck--splurge on a professional mover in Wichita Falls. They will provide the following, and you can cross these tasks off your checklist.

· Well-maintained equipment--moving vans which go through routine maintenance (check-ups, tire rotation, brake inspections) and are totally road-worthy

· Professional crews who know how to wrap, load, place pieces of furniture within a truck, and reverse the process at your new home.

· An insured crew and equipment--in the instance that a mover gets hurt, the moving company in Wichita Falls takes care of their medical bills

· Professional packing if you are really bogged down. Should you need a handful of specialty items packed or crated, they will handle that for you, to help you be confident your belongings will arrive in one piece.

· Ask for a list of the items they are unable to by law move--chemicals, plants, and paint are on the list, among others. You won't want to discover at the last minute that your prized bonsai plant will need to stay behind.

· Count on a contract and an itemized estimate.

· Be sure your mover posesses a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) license.

Employ the Crew, As Well

All your chums say, sure, they will help you load the moving van. That is great--if you are moving locally and so they can help you unload, too. And, if you're ready to risk injury, scheduling conflicts, and also other slight obstacles to your moving day.

Hiring professional movers in Wichita Falls assures a team who gets there punctually, knows what they're engaging in, can drive the truck, and you may rely on to handle your things safely and securely. They'll in addition unload all your stuff and place it in the new residence--and that's worth the price.

Move the Things You Love and Actually Use

The "if-you-haven't-worn-it-in-six-months-get-rid-of-it" guideline truly does apply if you are moving. Consider that each carton you pack and move contains some cost related to it, and that adds up fast when you are looking at many boxes. Get rid of outdated linens, kitchen devices, playthings, furniture--everything that you don't use, aren't keen on, or have no need for.

There's A Snowstorm Coming--or a Hurricane

One thing even the most structured in our midst can't control is the weather. Check out the forecast and obtain a Plan B if it turns out you are stuck in horrible rain, snowfall, or gusts of wind. Coordinate with the moving company in Wichita Falls a couple of days ahead of time if it looks risky to pack up and drive and reschedule if you have to. Should you be moving a long distance, book hotels on the way. Your realtor will understand if you cannot be out of the home on time; terrible weather impacts everyone, so the new occupants won't have the capacity to get there either. Don't attempt to beat the weather event--they usually win. Moving companies won't risk their teams or equipment in hazardous weather; the great thing is that it normally passes by in a day or two.

Place the Pets in Daycare

Your animals recognize if you are anxious, add to that the vanishing stuff and they can truly get distressed. Board your domestic pets the day before the movers arrive and pick them up on the way out of town. Bring their beds, food, water, and playthings for the journey and make them your last duty.

Now buckle up, chill out, and savor a disaster-free ride to your new house.
