3 Biggest Moving Mistakes to Avoid

3 Biggest Moving Mistakes to Avoid

When planning a relocation or big move, there are a lot of moving parts, and it’s understandable that you might find yourself getting a little frazzled or otherwise unorganized during the process. There are a lot of details to take care of, after all! However, missing some of these details can make your moving preparation process really frustrating, and can lead to more problems coming up later on. So how can you avoid common moving mistakes? We’ve got great strategies for avoiding moving mistakes. 


One of the biggest mistakes people make during the moving process is not leaving themselves enough time to plan and prepare for the move itself. Whenever you realize or decide that you’re going to be moving, you need to make sure to give yourself as much time to prepare as possible. 

So what should you do to prepare and what should you give yourself plenty of time to prepare for? First of all, make sure to book your moving company well in advance of your move. This is especially important during peak moving season, which falls between April and September. No matter which season you’re moving in, however, you’re going to want to give yourself plenty of time to schedule movers, and a buffer zone in case they’re booked for the week you’re looking to move during. 

By preparing and booking your movers well ahead of time, you’re allowing yourself to get a huge part of your move out of the way first thing, while also avoiding that dreaded last-minute moving crunch. No one wants that!


Not Getting Multiple Moving Quotes

When shopping around for moving companies, a lot of people can easily fall into the trap of only getting a quote from one moving company, and not shopping around at all. If you only look at one company, you could be paying more than you have to for a move. Make sure to compare and contrast prices and services offered by different companies, and make the right choice for you! While you’re researching, be sure to consider Fuller Moving Services for all of your full-service moving needs. 

Not Measuring Your New Home Before Buying or Moving Furniture

Whether you’re buying or renting a new home, make sure to take into account the dimensions of each room in relation to either your existing furniture, or furniture you’re looking to purchase for your new space. 

If your things don’t work for your prospective new space, you’re going to want to know that before you commit to a mortgage or a lease. 

Plus, even if your things fit in your new space, you need to make sure they can be safely transported and maneuvered into and out of your new home without breaking or damaging your furniture or house. 

Whether you’re moving into a new rental or are purchasing a home, it’s important to avoid common moving mistakes so you can be sure to give yourself the most straightforward and stress-free moving experience possible. An easy way to do this is by hiring the right movers for the job! Use Fuller Moving Services for all things full-service moving.
