Sidestep These Moving Disasters in 2020: Part 1

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For many of us, moving will never be enjoyable. Actually, even the easiest of relocations could have a little bit of stress.

However, whenever something goes terribly bad on moving day, it's easy to feel as if your world is coming to an end. Instead of battling with such a calamity, it is so much better to plan for many contingencies.

The following are some prevalent moving day disasters, and the way you'll be able to stay away from them:

Your Household Furniture Does not Fit

Upon traveling for hours and hours to San Antonio, you finally get to your new house... only to find that you are not able to push the sofa through the doorway. That could be an enormous letdown, and a substantial trigger of anxiety.

Solution: Measure your sizeable furnishings for all their proportions. Make sure you assess whatever you write down with the proportions of your new house, along with your new home's entryways.

Your Travel Plans Fall Through

In case you hold off until the final minute to make travel arrangements (including hotel reservations for long distance moves, or plans for a friend or two to assist you to transport your things) it's all too possible that they may fall through, and you'll be left rushing.

Solution: Make an effort to organize your travel preparations at the very least thirty days in advance. Set alerts for yourself if you must.

Items are Destroyed while in transit

It could be considered one of life's most frustrating experiences to ultimately reach your new home, open the moving truck's door... and discover that many of your treasured belongings have been lessened to destroyed pieces spread throughout the boxes.

Solution: Quite often, inappropriate packing techniques are the root cause of harm sustained while in transit. Use suitable containers and cartons for every sensitive item that you're moving. You'll want to make use of lots of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or whatever else is required to secure and support your valuables during the move. Or, it's possible to ask your professional mover in San Antonio for help packing items. The majority of moving companies can pack as much or as little as you require.

You End Up Spending More than You Expected

A couple of days prior to the move, you find out that your wallet is likely to take a bigger hit than you originally assumed. The moving company in San Antonio is billing you a higher charge for their help.

Solution: Various moving companies do request higher charges for "last minute support." To acquire the best rates, don't procrastinate: book your move as far ahead of time as you possibly can and always obtain a written estimate from the moving company in San Antonio you select.

In Part 2 of our Moving Disasters posts, we will discuss additional problems that may throw a wrench into your moving plans and approaches to steer clear of such troubles. Stay tuned!
