Moving Tips

Here are 10 great tips for long distance moving:

1) Check your mover on the D.O.T website https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/protect-your-move

2) Compare Cubic ft / Weight between quotes to get an “apples to apples” comparison

3) Discuss with your mover about accessibility issues on pick up / delivery

4) Make an itemized list of the items that are going

5) Make sure to wrap all mirrors and glass tops with bubble wrap or ask you mover to do it for you

6) Check fo the amount of coverage included in your quote if any

7) If you have homeowners or renters insurance you might already be covered for moving

8) Go over delivery time frames with your mover to have proper delivery expectations

9) A good carrier will label your boxes but it is still recommended to have your own labels

10) Make sure to have the furniture empty and ready for disassembling.

Have a quick and easy move!!

How to Prepare for a long distance move

Determine the Correct Size ( Cubic Ft / LBS) for your move. It’s very important that you and your chosen mover have a correct estimate of the volume your move will take. This means the mover can correctly prepare for your move and you know the accurate volume and rate in advance so there are no surprises on move day

We can help you do this in 3 different ways: Calling us to have a 5-10 minute phone call so we can prepare an item list for your move. Send us an e-mail with an existing inventory list to info@bigshouldersmoving.com so we can revise it on our system. Or try our easy to use Moving Calculator.

IMPORTANT TIP To have a real “apples to apples” comparison make sure to compare the Cubic Ft / Weight on different quotes.

Don’t wait until the last minute, plan your move in advance. This allows you for maximum flexibility, the dates of your choice and the best rates. Any decent carrier will have a refundable deposit and will allow you to change your dates at no cost, so you can secure your moving service in advance and still keep all of the flexibility you need.
