Moving your home can be a stressful task and, in an effort, to help find easy methods, you seek advice where you can. Unfortunately, there are a few myths that reach the mover that actually hinders the smooth transition of their move. To help you sift through the suggestions, we at Laprom Movers would like to share a few of the most common myths to avoid ensuring a smooth and successful move.
Common Moving Myths & Facts
1) There are no differences between moving companies?
One of the most ridiculous, and worst, myths that people share concerning companies is that they are all one in the same. Some companies sub-employ the people as needed to fulfill their work orders, and they are never properly trained or even experienced for an organized and proper move. Whether you are moving locally or long-distance moving, you need a dependable professional who has the experience, training, and skills to move everyday household items and even unique items. Companies not only differ with employees, but services as well, some only perform long-distance moving, others do not have a storage facility, and other such differences. Not only do you want a reputable company, but you want to make certain they can provide the services you need.
2) The moving company’s basic insurance covers all unforeseen mishaps?
There are unforeseen circumstances that can occur while moving. Movers will have insurance for their company and depending on their policy, only cover so much of the financial loss if mishaps occur. This is why it is prudent you inquire about the specifics of their insurance, and if necessary, invest in additional insurance coverage.
3) You do not need different sized boxes, quality products, and supplies to move?
It is very common for people to suggest asking the local grocery boxes for used boxes. They will then grab the aged tape in the back of the drawer, markers that barely write, and use old catalogs to wrap their fragile items. These practices will end in disaster. When it is time to move, there are a few things you can cut corners with, but getting quality moving products is essential. You want fresh, properly sized boxes, new tape for proper sealing, bubble wrap for efficient protection, fresh markers to properly label and organize, and other fine products.
4) Friday is the best day to move?
Where Friday might be optimal for those with weekends off and can take advantage of a 3-day weekend to get their move complete, Friday is not the most optimal considering other elements. If you are trying to plan a last-minute move with a company and schedule services on Friday, they will likely not have any slots. Weekend demand also frequently result in higher moving rates, traffic is also higher. The best time to move is in the middle of the week to take advantage of more flexibility and cheaper rates.
