Moving Tips

Moving can be quite a stressful thing to do, but a relocation can become even more stressful if not executed properly. We've all heard the horror stories about items getting broken, damaged, or lost in transit with the moving company having no idea how it happened. With damages or lost items costing you hundreds or even thousands of dollars, choosing a reputable Pensacola mover such as Bonded Transportation is one of the most important steps of the moving process.

To ensure that your relocation is executed to your highest standards, here are a few Pensacola moving tips to help:

  1. Make a list: Create a list of all the specific details regarding your move so your movers can stay up to date and have something to refer to. Be sure to include the distance and how many large and/or fragile items will need to be moved. This will also give movers an idea of how many large items need to be accounted for, as well as giving them a rough estimate on how long the entire move will be.
  2. Special instruction: If you have any special items such as vases or pianos, it might be helpful to separate them from the rest of the items beforehand and transport them yourself.  Delicate vases might be better off in your hands than in the hands of total strangers.  Large items such as pianos should be handled by specialty movers. For an optimal move, communication is a must—so be sure to give special instruction on unique items.
  3. Do your homework: This cannot be stressed enough.  When applying for a job, an employer will often ask for a list of references and do a bit of checking up on you. You must do the same to find a truly reputable and reliable mover. Read their reviews and testimonials, compare services and amenities, and learn as much as you can to ensure you and your movers are a good fit.
  4. Comparison shopping: Don't just go with the first option you find in the yellow pages; in fact, take the time to explore your options and compare several different moving companies against each other to find out which one offers the better deal.  With a little effort you will find a mover like Bonded Transportation that will treat your belongings with respect and care.
