Moving tips - Know before you Move !

Packing tips and materials
  First decide if want the movers do the packing for you or if you want to save some money by doing all or some of the packing by yourself. Dispose of all the items you don't need anymore. Start packing ahead of time - pack some boxes every day. it is recommended to purchase good packing materials such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap and packing paper. Pack each room at a time and label the boxes properly. Pack light items in large boxes and heavy items in small boxes. Fragile items such as plates and pictures should be placed vertically in the box with lots of paper or cloth cushioning. Try the online Box Calculator.  
Moving Your Vehicle
  Depends where you're moving to, you might want to use professional car haulers to transport your car (or one of your cars) this might prove cheaper than driving to your new home or even selling and buying a car. Get free car shipping quotes.  
Take your valuables with you
  Your documents and valuables can't be replaced. take them with you to your car or plane and don't forget to take essential items for your first few days at your new home.  
Coverage for damage or loss
  Your moving company should offer you 2 kinds of coverage: the Basic Liability is usually 60 cents per pound, per item and should cost you nothing. The declared value coverage offers protection against losses and damages - the cost is based on the value of your shipment and may be subject to a minimum amount or deductible. Estimate the replacement value of your belongings in order to apply it to your contract. Your mover should provide you with detailed information about your coverage options. You might want to check your homeowners insurance policy for coverage during a move.  
Hidden costs
  The charges on local moves are usually based on labor time while long distance moves are charged based on weight and distance, and regulated by the federal government. However, do your research and ask your moving company if there are extra charges for: Extra heavy items such as piano, safe or riding lawn mowers, disassembly or reassembly of furniture or other devices, a long walk from the truck to the house or stairs.  
Moving services contract
  Always demand a written contract to include all the items to be moved, all costs and charges, delivery time, delivery address, phone numbers, insurance coverage and a total cost figure. Read the contract and the fine print before you sign. It might be a good idea to ask for a free on-site estimate before engaging with a moving company. get several online or phone estimates and 2-3 on-site estimates before you choose a mover. Make sure to mention all the items to be moved for an accurate assessment and price quotes.
