Biggest Mistakes People Make When Working With a Moving Company

Are you moving into a new home? Before you start packing boxes or calling a moving company, learn about the biggest mistakes that people make when they’re planning a move:

Not Sorting Through Items

Everything that’s in your current home does not need to come with you to your new home. Chances are, there are a lot of items that you don’t need, so why waste time packing them up and bring them to your new home? Make an effort to actually sort through your belongings as you begin to pack instead of just tossing them in boxes to get the job done.

Doing Everything Last Minute

Packing is not the most enjoyable task, so many people put it off until the last possible moment and then find themselves rushing to get the job done. The result? Fragile items aren’t packed correctly and may break on the way to your new home. You won’t have the time to get organized, which means you’ll end up shoving things in boxes and forgetting to label what’s inside. You may also end up leaving things behind because you’re in such a hurry to get out of the house. Don’t make this mistake—if you don’t want to pack, contact a moving company that offers packing services.

Forgetting About the Survival Kit

If you’re using a moving truck to get all of your belongings into your new home, be sure to keep a survival kit with you in your vehicle instead of putting everything inside the truck. What’s in a survival kit? This bag contains all of the items that you need to make it through the first night at your home. For example, some items that should be included are prescription medications, chargers for your electronic devices, and toilet paper. Keep this with you, so you don’t have to begin unpacking once you arrive at your new home immediately. Learn more about a moving day survival kit here.

Moving Everything on Your Own

Even if you’re in perfect shape, moving dozens of heavy boxes on your own is never a good idea. You can easily hurt yourself or exhaust yourself to where you have no energy left to complete the move! Avoid this problem by working with professional movers so you can protect your health and save all of your energy for getting settled into your new home.

Forgetting to Check the Forecast

Moving in bad weather is not impossible, but it definitely makes things more difficult. Make sure you take a look at the weather forecast a few days before you’re scheduled to move. If it looks like there will be bad storms, you may want to call the moving company and see if you should reschedule so your items aren’t damaged.

Now that you know which mistakes to avoid making, it’s time to contact the professionals at Eden’s Moving Company to start planning your move! Contact Eden’s Moving Company to discuss local and long-distance moving services. Call us today to learn more about our services and request a quote.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
