Using Moving Guides & Checklists

While many things could go wrong during your move, making all the necessary preparations before Moving Day will allow you to prevent any potential problems.

Organization and efficiency are prerequisites to a successful move. You can avoid all typical moving mistakes simply by following a basic moving guide. Preparing a moving checklist, which outlines the tasks you need to complete before and after your move, can also help you get through the moving process. These steps are quite simple to do, and are well worth the effort.

Choosing a NYC Mover


Pets also require special care and attention during the moving process. Keep in mind that however hard moving day is for you, it is much more difficult for your furry friends. See if your mover can give you any advice about moving with pets, or if they offer pet moving services.

Once you've made your choice, settle your moving insurance terms with your New York moving company and an insurance agent. Whether you're moving to New York or a place outside the city, have your mover make the necessary moving and storage arrangements for your goods.

Packing Services & Regulations

The next thing on your list should be to prepare an inventory of all the items you plan to take with you. Don't forget to specify the condition of each item in case you need to file an insurance claim. After you complete this list and have your mover verify it, you can start considering your packing options.

Determine whether you'd like to pack yourself, or to avail of your mover's packing services. If you opt for the former, have your hauler go over home packing regulations with you, and make sure that you learn how to pack properly, which boxes to use for various goods, and which items should not be packed.

Bureaucratic Moving Tips

Ask your mover for some bureaucratic tips and list them down in your checklist. Also jot down reminders to notify all relevant institutions and authorities of your upcoming move, both in your current and new location. If you have children, see to it that all necessary arrangements (such as school registration) have been made well ahead of time, so as to make their transition as smooth as possible.
