Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For many of us, moving is not fun. In fact, even the easiest of relocations can have a little bit of tension.

However, if something goes unbelievably bad on moving day, it is easy to feel like your world is reaching an end. Instead of having to endure such a calamity, it is so much better to prepare for all contingencies.

The following are some typical moving day problems, and ways in which it is possible to stay away from them:

Your Furniture Does not Fit

When you finish traveling for countless hours to Tulsa, you finally reach your new home... only to find that you are not able to push the couch through the door. That would be a major letdown, and a substantial trigger of stress.

Solution: Check your big furnishings for all their proportions. Make sure to compare whatever you take note of with the proportions of your new residence, as well as your new residence's entrances.

Your Travel Plans Fall Through

If you hold off until the last moment to make travel accommodations (including motel reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a pal or two that will help you transport your stuff) it's very likely that they may fall through, and you'll be left rushing.

Solution: Attempt to plan out your travel preparations at least four weeks ahead of time. Set up alerts for yourself if you have to.

Items are Broken on the Road

It could be considered one of life's most disheartening encounters to ultimately reach your new residence, open up the moving truck's gate... and find that lots of your treasured possessions are decreased to destroyed parts dispersed throughout the boxes.

Solution: Quite often, inappropriate packing methods are the root cause of problems incurred on the road. Employ suitable storage containers and cartons for each and every breakable item that you are moving. You'll want to utilize lots of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is needed to secure and support your possessions during the move. Or, you can always ask your professional mover in Tulsa for help packing items. Many moving companies will pack as much or as little as you need.

You Wind Up Shelling out More than You Anticipated

A few days before the move, you find out that your bank account is likely to take a more substantial hit than you originally thought. The moving company in Tulsa is billing you a higher fee for their service.

Solution: A lot of moving companies do bill increased charges for "last minute service." To get the best rates, never delay doing things: book your move as far ahead of time as is possible and always obtain a written quotation from the moving company in Tulsa you select.

In Part 2 of our Moving Disasters blog posts, we are going to go over more issues that can easily throw a wrench in your moving plans and approaches to steer clear of such challenges. Stay tuned!
