5 things that could go wrong with a move (and how to prevent them)
By dm support

A move is stressful. It gets even more stressful when things go wrong.

However, you can avoid a lot of the issues that cause stress by selecting a good moving company to handle your move. As you will learn, simply making that move can save you time, money and maybe some damaged goods, as well.

These are five of the frequent problems that plague a move.

Problems with the Mover

Unexpected price increases. Failure to show up on time. Not bringing a professional moving staff or not bringing enough people. Those are just some of the many problems people often have with movers. And those aren’t even the worst scenario. The worst scenario is they load your stuff on their truck and you never see them again.

Don’t get in a rush when selecting a mover. Look for professionals with experience and great reputation. Look for ones that offers all the moving services you think you’ll need. Make sure they are licensed and connect you with insurance. This is not a good time for a last-second decision.

Packing Issues

So many things can go wrong with packing. But the No. 1 issue is that people underestimate how much time it will take to pack their home. In most cases you want to start as early as possible with a massive clean out, throwing out the things you don’t need. The key is to plan your move ahead of time and make sure you hit deadlines for cleaning out and packing as moving day approaches.

Truck Not Adequate

If you choose to go the DIY route, then the moving truck can quickly become an issue. The most frequent problem is that it is not big enough, meaning you must stop in the middle of loading the truck and go back to throwing things away. That’s not a good plan for a smooth move. This is where spending the time to find a professional mover pays off.

Damaged Goods

If something breaks while you do a DIY move, then you are just out of luck. With a professional mover, you get at least the basic insurance they are all required to supply. That’s important to know. If a mover doesn’t offer this, it’s a red flag. Also, a mover should provide you information to contact a third party insurer and obtain more levels of insurance.

Cost Run Up

This is another frequent issue. Many people underestimate what a move will cost. That’s why it’s beneficial to work with a professional moving company that offers you a written, estimate of what your move will cost. No sudden price increases on moving day. No extra charges you didn’t know were hidden in the fine print. Knowing the price ahead of time can help you better budget for the move.

These are some of the issues that can come up with a move. Many of them are avoided by choosing a professional company to handle your move. Take the time to do the research and find a company that meets high standards. Accepting anything less can lead to a lot of moving day trouble!
