There’s nothing easy about moving, especially if you’ve been in your current residence for years and aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to planning, packing, transporting, or any of the other logistics involved in a move.
While there are hundreds of questions that come up in the course of planning and following through with a move, today’s post focuses on four of the most common questions we’ve heard over the years here at PNW Moving and Delivery in Tacoma. Get in touch with us if you’d like more information about any of the topics discussed in this post!
When Should I Plan My Move?
The sooner you start planning, the better.
This might sound unhelpful at first, but we really can’t overemphasize the importance of early planning. If you know that your lease is ending in a year and you’ll be purchasing a home, then start talking with local movers to get an estimate of how much it will cost to move your belongings. This, in turn, provides you with a rough estimate of how much money you’ll need to save leading up to the big day.
If your move is just a few weeks away, you’ll need to contact a local moving company as soon as possible to get started with an estimate. At PNW Moving and Delivery, we take pride in offering prompt, accurate quotes that help you understand your options.
How Can I Keep My Belongings Organized?
If there’s anything worse than living out of boxes, it’s not knowing what’s in the boxes you’re living out of. Instead of winging it and planning to unpack everything in a day or two (this rarely happens, trust us!), it’s best to create a roadmap for yourself that details everything you’ve packed. Make a checklist detailing the contents of every box you pack. And as for the boxes themselves, we recommend color-coordinated labels that correspond to specific rooms. If you want to take your organization a step further, then take photos of the contents of each box and write the contents of each box on the side.
Are Packing Services Worth the Investment?
If all of the steps we discussed in the previous section sound like a burden on top of everything else involved in your move, then we can’t recommend investing in packing services more highly. While some Tacoma moving companies charge extremely high rates and take their time packing homes, our staff can pack a large home in a single day and have you ready to move out the next.
Can I Afford a Moving Company?
Although the answer to this question depends on your specific circumstances, the only way to find out is to contact local movers for quotes. If you get in touch with PNW Moving, we’ll provide you with a transparent quote and help you find ways to make your move more convenient and less stressful. We understand that moving is a hectic and expensive process, but we do everything we can to offer professional moving services at prices the competition simply can’t beat.
