Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

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

For most of us, moving isn't fun. In truth, even the simplest of relocations can include some anxiety.

However, when something goes unbelievably wrong on moving day, it's not hard to believe that your world is reaching an end. Instead of battling with this type of disaster, it's so far better to prepare for many contingencies.

Below are some common moving day mishaps, and the way it is possible to avoid them:

Your Furniture Won't Fit

After traveling for countless hours to Denver, you at long last arrive at your new house... only to realize that you are not able to push the sofa through the doorway. That will be an enormous letdown, as well as a massive trigger of anxiety.

Solution: Check your large pieces of furniture for all their specifications. Be sure to assess that which you write down with the proportions of your new residence, plus your new home's entrances.

Your Travel Arrangements Fall Through

In case you hold off until the very last second to make travel arrangements (such as motel reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a pal or two to assist you to transport your things) then it is all too possible that they will fall through, and you'll be left rushing.

Solution: Attempt to plan out your travel preparations a minimum of four weeks in advance. Arrange alerts for yourself if you need to.

Items are Damaged on the Road

It could be considered one of life's most frustrating ordeals to ultimately arrive at your new residence, open the moving truck's gate... and discover that lots of your treasured things are reduced to broken pieces tossed throughout the boxes.

Solution: In many instances, improper packing techniques tend to be the source of harm received in transit. Use proper packing containers and boxes for every fragile thing that you are bringing. You'll want to utilize plenty of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is needed to secure and cushion your belongings during the move. Or, you could ask your professional mover in Denver for help packing items. Many moving companies can pack as much or as little as you require.

You Wind Up Spending Even More than You Anticipated

A few days ahead of the move, you discover that your bank account is likely to take a larger hit than you originally thought. The moving company in Denver is charging you a higher charge for their assistance.

Solution: A lot of moving companies do charge increased prices for "last minute service." To acquire the preferred rates, do not put things off: reserve your move as far in advance as you can and always obtain a written estimate from the moving company in Denver you choose.

In Part 2 of the Moving Disasters posts, we are going to go over additional problems that can easily throw a wrench into your moving plans and approaches to prevent such troubles. Stay tuned!
