Choosing a moving company may the first real headache for you in a pre-move stage. Please read our article information about how to choose a moving company for your upcoming relocation and to get rid of the headache.
Read our article about how to save on moving regardless if you are planning to hire professional movers or go DIY way.
Having movers hired as early as possible is a great idea especially during the busy season which usually runs between the end of April and mid-Septemeber. Otherwise, you may stick with a poor choice and risking to pay more because when moving companies are almost booked up they tend to raise rates to cover the losses for slow days when they reduce rates significantly just to keep their crews busy and cover some fixed costs of running a business (insurance, parking, advertising, etc.)

Having an ability to park a truck close to your new home/office will help the move to go faster thus cheaper for you. If you need movers to park on busy streets or one-way street, contact your local police department and they should be able to help with parking permit arrangements. Use only a non-emergency phone number which you can find online. If you move in or out of a building with a loading dock/zone you'll need to contact a property management firm. Please note that it's better to take care of parking arrangements at least 7 business days in advance; otherwise, you may not be able to have your movers to park at the desired spot. In such a case, you'll need either to reschedule the move or movers will look for the nearest legal parking available which can be quite far. So, having parking arrangements under control will help you to make your move stress-free and efficient.
We know that a place can be a disaster when packing boxes and getting ready for the movers' arrival. Keep your chargers handy and have your mobile devices charged prior to the moving start.
1. Use standard brand-new boxes. Used boxes can be flimsy thus leading to the damage risks.
2. Make sure both ends of the boxes are taped securely.
3. Make sure that the top of the box is flat which will allow movers to stack the boxes efficiently inside of the truck.
4. Fragile items should be wrapped in a few layers of packing paper or bubble-wrap.
5. Fill in any hollow spaces with crushed paper or some sheets.
6. Use small (1.5 cu ft) boxes for heavy items like boxes and dishes.
7. Use medium (3.0 cu ft) boxes for everything else.
8. Avoid using large (4.5 cu ft) and extra-large (6.0 cu ft) boxes, unless you need to pack something bulky yet light. It's safe if any box is not more than 20 lbs.
9. Label all boxes. Unpacking will go easier in such a case.
10. DO NOT PACK
- any liquids

Have movers to send you a quote via email to avoid any misunderstandings. Here, at EasyBusy, we use email for most of the communication between us and our customers to make sure that nothing is missed: any special requirements, price quote, rates for additional services (junk hauling, storage services, etc.)
License is proof that a moving company has passed the State examination and maintain all required insurance policies.

For all local moves, unless you are moving our of a studio apartment or a small 1-bedroom apartment, we recommend arranging packing boxes a day before the actual move. Otherwise, the move may be finished very late. As for long-distance moves, if you want movers to pack and load in one day, delivery will be done in a day (in most cases) as a driver will need to have proper rest before driving. The best idea to figure out the best plan for doing your move is to contact our moving experts and discuss your relocation in more details.
