If you’ve lived in or around the Austin area for a good portion of your life, you may have had occasion to make a few moves. Like people all around the country, the lead up to your moves may have been filled with anxiety and stress. Not only because of the uncertainty of a new house, new neighborhood, etc., but also because you weren’t quite sure if you were making the right choices for a smooth move. Luckily, in times like these it’s easier than ever to find the information you’re looking for to make sure you’re prepared for your next move…
Pre-Packing for Your Move
If there’s one tip you read about more often in moving tips than any other, it’s the importance of pre-packing. Let’s face it, even when you’re not planning a move, you can walk around your house and spot plenty of stuff you won’t need for weeks or months. Well, during the lead-up to your move, these types of items are perfect candidates for pre-packing. Nothing will increase your stress and anxiety more leading up to moving day than having to hastily pack boxes in the last few days before the truck comes. Not only will you save yourself some headaches before your move, but unpacking will also be much easier if you’ve gotten a jump on things and taken the time to properly organize and label your moving boxes.
Your Moving Day
A big city move comes with its own unique challenges, and moving in Austin is no different. There are special things you need to account for, like the best route to your new place, based mostly on traffic and/or road construction. These items are also lumped into the pre-planning mode, as you can take a few drives over to your new place at different times to see when is the best time to start your move. But, like a move in any city large or small, you will also want to account for any small children or pets on moving day. Having someone watch or take care of them elsewhere may not be the worst idea, allowing you to concentrate on your move without feeling you are neglecting them.
Also unique to big city life is phenomenal selection when it comes to making a big purchase. You probably realized this the last time you went shopping for a car. The same can be said when you’re moving in Austin. I mean, the shear number of moving companies available virtually guarantees your movers will be fine, right? Actually, if you skimp on your research into movers, you can easily be stuck with a bad apple that will really ruin your moving day. What you’ll want is moving quotes from several moving companies that are insured and bonded with uniformed, professional moving staff. These movers should be courteous and have a great reputation with recent customers. Having a great moving company will set you on the right path for a fantastic move.
