11 Moving Mistakes that You Must Be Aware of

“To know about some terrible moving blunders, kindly give this blog a very good read”.

When it comes to moving, most people end up committing the most common yet horrible moving mistakes.

To know about the same, kindly keep reading this informative blog.

You misjudge the right time to relocate your house

The first mistake that I witness people commit is that they misinterpret the right time to move. I mean it is absolutely understandable if you move for a job opportunity or promotion (or any other reason in a rush), but if you are moving because you no longer like your current house and its facilities, then you should look into your finance in depth before taking the call.

You do not create a moving budget

Secondly, you shouldn’t commit the blunder of not creating a budget. If you are hiring moving and storage in Los Angeles, then there should be a budget for that and you should also have a rough idea about how much you can permit for other expenses.

You fail to research your moving company

Do not commit the huge blunder of skipping your homework when it comes to searching for the right Los Angeles moving companies. Make it a point to go through reviews and ratings left by customers, check sites like Yelp and BBB, etc. in order to understand the efficiency of the company.

You have an assumption that movers are cheaters

I don’t know from where it started, but I know people who think that all the movers out there are cheaters. They will either flee away with your belongings or surprise you with hidden costs. Luckily, this is not the case at all. Just hire a reputed company, talk to them and learn to rely on them. I mean yes, there are fraudulent companies, just like any other service sector.

You withhold move-related information from your selected moving company

Whether it is about your piano or withholding stuff when they come for an in-house estimate, these are huge mistakes that one should never commit. Also, do not fail to book an in-home estimate (preferably from four to five companies).

You fail to check your insurance options

This is yet another huge mistake! You should never fail to explore your insurance options. You should talk to the moving company and also your insurance agent about the options you have and explore them.

You sign incomplete documents or even blank ones

Never commit the mistake of signing incomplete or blank documents. Read through every line before signing it. Be very careful.

You hand your valuables to your moving company

No, there is absolutely no need to hand over your documents, precious jewelry, etc. to them. Just carry them in a bag and move it with you in your car. Expensive, sentimental and irreplaceable belongings should move with you.

You forget to transfer your utilities

This is a very important job when it comes to your move. In fact, this should be on the top of your checklist but you might forget this point during all the hustle and bustle.

Picking the busiest season

Another blunder that you should stay away from is picking the busiest season for your move. Then expect no customization and personal care! So pick the less busy season. Also, try to pick weekdays and not weekends. These tips will fetch you some good discount as well.

You delay the home packing task

No, do not think you have lots of time left when the date is finalized. Star working!
