Moving Tips

To help you prepare for your upcoming move, here are some essential tips from the experts at
AB Moving Services:

1.Start Early and Plan Ahead

Begin planning your move as soon as possible. Create a detailed checklist and timeline to stay organized and ensure that no important tasks are overlooked. Key steps include:

Booking Your Move: Secure your moving date with AB Moving Services well in advance to guarantee availability.
Gathering Supplies: Stock up on quality packing materials such as sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, and markers.

2. Declutter Before You Pack

Long distance moves are charged based on weight and volume, so it’s crucial to downsize your belongings. Sort through your items and decide what to keep, donate, or discard. This will make your move more efficient and cost-effective.

Donate: Give gently used items to local charities.
Sell: Host a garage sale or list items online.
Dispose: Recycle or discard items that are no longer usable. 

3. Pack Smartly and Methodically

Efficient packing is key to a successful long distance move:

Label Boxes Clearly: Mark each box with its contents and the room it belongs in to make unpacking easier.
Protect Fragile Items: Use ample padding and label these boxes as “fragile.”
Create an Essentials Box: Pack a separate box with essentials you’ll need right away, such as toiletries, a change of clothes, important documents, and basic kitchen items.  

4. Hire Professional Movers

Choosing a professional moving company like AB Moving Services ensures a smooth and secure relocation:

Change of Address: Update your address with the post office, banks, subscription services, and any other relevant organizations.
Utilities: Schedule the disconnection and reconnection of utilities at your current and new locations.
Schools and Employers: Notify them of your new address and moving date. 

6. Take Inventory

Maintain an inventory list of all your belongings to ensure nothing gets lost in transit. Check off items as they are packed, loaded, and unloaded.
