The average homeowner will move properties around eight times in their life, and as anyone who has had to move in LA will know, this can be an extremely stressful time. Not only do you have to organize changes of address and new utility bills, but you will also have to deal with the stresses and strains of the moving day itself. At Elite moving and storage we have worked with many customers to manage their removals and can offer you some helpful tips to make this big day go as smoothly as possible.
Start Organizing As Soon As Possible
We recommend that you get organized as soon as possible after the exchange of contracts. This can include booking storage facilities early, and start your hunt for the right moving companies. If you start at least two months before the move, you can check over these companies, making sure that they have a good reputation and that they are properly insured. Start by getting quotes before you make a deal with any moving business. The sooner you do this, the more time you will have to make arrangements which will fit in with the entire moving day schedule.
Reconfirm Your Moving Details
Once you have organized your moving day, and have made arrangements with a removals firm, you might be tempted to set that to one side, and focus upon social arrangements and your new property. However, we recommend that you keep in contact with your removals firm, and checking with them at least two weeks prior to moving. At the same time, you should start to pack up your items. People without packing experience can take much longer to organize an entire home, and so you should start early to prevent delays on the day itself.
Plan For The Big Day Itself
If you have been able to meet the deadlines for packing and organizing your move, it is a good idea to keep on planning right up until the final hours before the move. Once the team from Elite moving and storage arrived, do a walk-through of the property, and describe any items that might need extra care. If you have any questions at all during this period, or want to talk to your removals team before they arrive, then you can contact us today online, or by calling 818-252-7421 now.
