Hiring A Moving Company

What do I look for when hiring a moving company?
The American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) offers a Certified Mover Program for moving companies throughout the United States.
This program consists of professional movers that have agreed to follow "Code of Conduct," by responding to customers both ethically and in a timely manner.

Efficient and reliable transportation of household goods

The Day of the Move
The day has finally arrived!
As excited as you and your family maybe about your new home and its surroundings, moving can make everything seem uncertain.
It is important to take a deep breath and try not to be stressed.
Here is a list of important things you should remember when your moving day arrives:
Designate specific items that you need, that should not be packed with the rest on your belongings.
If you have children, make sure that they have at least two special items to take with them for the trip.
Make sure you remove all trash from your current residence.
If you are using a moving company or friends and family, specify certain unloading areas.
Make sure there are ample walkways for moving large pieces as well as boxes of your belongings.
If you are using a moving company, reiterate those specific items that need special attention and handled-with-care.
Remember to meet the needs of those helping in your move by supplying them with food, beverages and restroom facilities.
Lastly, if you are using a moving company, please remember to read and sign all paperwork, documenting anything that transpired during the moving process.
Tying Up All of the Loose Ends
You have survived the move and are now in your new house, so now what?
There are many things that still need to be done because all of the unpacking.
Please remember to:
Call your local utilities company
Call the telephone company
Call the boarding kennels where your pets are located
