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 is simply not fun. In truth, even the simplest of relocations can have a little bit of anxiety.

Still, whenever something goes terribly bad on moving day, it's easy to believe that your world is reaching an end. Instead of having to endure such a catastrophe, it is so much better to plan for those contingencies.

Here are several common moving day disasters, and how it is possible to prevent them:

Your Furniture Will not Fit

After traveling for countless hours to Colorado Springs, you finally get to your new home... only to realize that you are not able to push the couch through the front door. That could be a significant letdown, plus a huge cause of anxiety.

Solution: Measure your big pieces of furniture for all their dimensions. Be sure to review whatever you record with the dimensions of your new home, plus your new home's entryways.

Your Travel Arrangements Fall Through

In the event you delay until the last moment to make travel accommodations (including lodging reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a pal or two to assist you to transport your things) it's very probable that they may fall through, and you'll be left scrambling.

Solution: Attempt to prepare your travel accommodations at least a month in advance. Arrange alerts for yourself if you have to.

Things are Broken in Transit

It is usually one of life's most frustrating experiences to ultimately arrive at your new home, open the moving truck's gate... and discover that many of your loved belongings have been decreased to broken pieces dispersed in the boxes.

Solution: In many instances, improper packing techniques are often the origin of harm incurred on the road. Use suitable packing containers and boxes for every breakable item that you are taking. You'll want to employ a good amount of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is necessary to secure and cushion your belongings all through the move. Or, you could ask your professional mover in Colorado Springs for help packing items. Most moving companies will pack as much or as little as you require.

You Find Yourself Paying More than You Anticipated

A couple of days ahead of the move, you discover that your bank account is likely to take a bigger hit than you formerly believed. The moving company in Colorado Springs is billing you a higher charge for their assistance.

Solution: Various moving companies do bill higher prices for "last minute service." To get the preferred rates, never procrastinate: reserve your move as far beforehand as you can and always obtain a written quotation from the moving company in Colorado Springs you choose.

In Part 2 of our Moving Disasters blog posts, we are going to go over more issues that can throw a wrench into the moving plans and ways to prevent such challenges. Stay tuned for more!
