Prepare for the Move – Alabama
Everyone knows that failing to plan is planning to fail, and the saying applies to moving, too. We always tell our clients to have a plan ahead of time in order to save time, money, and stress later down the road. This is especially critical when moving during the holidays. We recommend putting together a moving timeline to help you stay on track and organized. What should your moving timeline include?
- Shopping for a local moving company and getting moving estimates
- Home organization and de-clutter days
- Packing supplies shopping days
- Packing days (including packing your first night box and pet boxes)
- Utility stop/start scheduling
- Mail forwarding scheduling
- Change of address with personal providers (doctor, dentist, insurance, etc)
- Moving day!

Regardless of when you are planning on moving, having a team of professionals at your side is critical to the success of your move. Yes, a moving company is a financial investment, but it’s one that will pay off in the long run.
A licensed and insured moving company can provide expertise and peace of mind during the entire moving process. The company will also have access to professional-grade moving supplies and equipment that will ensure that your items are as protected as possible.
As with most things, choosing a locally-owned and operated moving company is the best option. We always recommend that our clients receive at least 2-3 estimates before choosing a company. Are you ready to get moving? CONTACT US today to get a free moving estimate!
