Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

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

For most people, moving is not enjoyable. In truth, even the simplest of relocations may have a little bit of tension.

Though, if something goes horribly bad on moving day, it's easy to believe that your world is coming to an end. Instead of battling with this type of calamity, it is so far better to prepare for those contingencies.

The following are some common moving day disasters, and the way it is possible to prevent them:

Your Household Furniture Won't Fit

After traveling for countless hours to Atlanta, you finally reach your new residence... only to discover that you are not able to push the sofa through the doorway. That would be a significant disappointment, and a massive trigger of stress.

Solution: Check your large furnishings for all their specifications. Make sure you assess whatever you write down with the proportions of your new house, along with your new home's entrance doors.

Your Travel Plans Fall Through

If you hold off until the final moment to make travel arrangements (including motel reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a friend or two that will help you transport your stuff) then it's increasingly probable that they will fall through, and you will be left rushing.

Solution: Try to plan out your travel preparations at the very least a month beforehand. Arrange reminders for yourself if you must.

Things are Damaged while in transit

It is usually among life's most frustrating encounters to at long last get to your new residence, open up the moving truck's gate... and find that lots of your valued possessions have been lessened to destroyed parts scattered throughout the boxes.

Solution: Quite often, incorrect packing methods tend to be the root cause of harm received in transit. Utilize appropriate containers and cartons for every fragile item that you are taking. Make sure to use a good amount of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is required to protect and support your possessions during the move. Or, it's possible to ask your professional mover in Atlanta for help packing items. The majority of moving companies can pack as much or as little as you'll need.

You Find Yourself Shelling out Even More than You Realized

A couple of days before the move, you discover that your wallet is going to take a bigger hit than you formerly believed. The moving company in Atlanta is billing you a higher rate for their help.

Solution: Various moving companies do charge increased rates for "last minute support." To get the preferred rates, do not put things off: reserve your spot as far ahead of time as possible and always get a written quote from the moving company in Atlanta you choose.

In Part 2 of our Moving Disasters blog posts, we'll go over more problems that may throw a wrench into the moving plans and approaches to avoid such complications. Stay tuned!
