Moving isn’t something most families look forward to. Especially if you have lived in the same house for two decades, having to relocate everything to a new house an be a painful experience. Unfortunately the current economic situation in the world has left many people with no choice but to pack up and move to another town or city to look for jobs. Miami did not escape this downturn. The advice below is intended to make your Miami moving experience run as smoothly as possible.
When it comes to moving, planning is the name of the game. Before you do anything, even before you talk to a removal company, first grab a pen and a sheet of paper and sit down. Make notes of everything that has to be done and arrange them in the order they have to be done. If you have a spreadsheet package on your PC even better, because then you can easily add more tasks later on and rearrange them when necessary.
There are number of things which might not be directly tied in with the move, but which you nevertheless have to organize. Remember to cancel your newspaper delivery for example. Arrange for the water, electricity and Internet to be discontinued on the day that you move.
If it’s done too early you might end up without running water in the house! Even losing your Internet account a day too early can cause a lot of inconvenience, not to mention having to spend the last night groping around in darkness.
How do you plan to transport the family pets? If you are moving to a far-off destination it’s not a bad idea to rather use an animal travel service to fly them to your new town or city.
Cats normally hate to travel in a car. If you have exotic pets an animal travel service might be your only option. They know exactly how to handle animals of all shapes and sizes and it will take a lot of stress out of the situation for you and for the pets as well.
When it comes to packing, you can either do it yourself or you can have it done by the movers or a company specializing in this. Even if you get someone else to do it, you should still be there to supervise the operation. That’s unless you want your great grandmother’s tea set to arrive on the other side in a hundred different pieces. The insurance will pay out, but you can never replace an heirloom like that.
Choosing a removal company should never be done on the basis of price alone. Rather choose the one with the best reputation. Discuss the move with them before the time and make sure they understand your requirements. Also make sure that your furniture is insured during the move. Miami moving doesn’t have to be a nightmare. It’s up to you to choose the right partners to make it run smoothly.
