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 will never be fun. In truth, even the simplest of relocations can come with some anxiety.

However, whenever something goes unbelievably wrong on moving day, it's not hard to believe that your world is reaching an end. Instead of suffering through such a calamity, it's so much better to prepare for many contingencies.

Below are some common moving day mishaps, and how you can prevent them:

Your Home Furniture Won't Fit

After traveling for hours and hours to Denver, you at long last get to 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 huge trigger of stress.

Solution: Check your large furniture pieces for all their specifications. Make sure to compare that which you take note of with the dimensions of your new residence, plus your new house's entrance doors.

Your Travel Arrangements Fall Through

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

Solution: Try to plan out your travel preparations at the very least four weeks in advance. Arrange alerts for yourself if you must.

Things are Damaged in Transit

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

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

You End Up Paying Even More than You Anticipated

A couple of days ahead of the move, you discover that your banking account is likely to take a more substantial hit than you originally believed. The moving company in Denver is charging you a higher charge for their help.

Solution: Many moving companies do bill increased rates for "last minute service." To acquire the preferred rates, don't procrastinate: 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 discuss additional problems that could throw a wrench in your moving plans and approaches to prevent such troubles. Stay tuned!
