Online PR News – 02-July-2012 – Canton, MA – Humboldt Storage and Moving, the oldest moving company in Boston, largest United Van Lines agent and experts in stress-free moving has sound advice for people who may be moving during the upcoming summer months.

The summer months are well under way, and with that the busiest moving season of the year is in full swing. The experts at Humboldt Storage and Moving know how stressful a move can be. Humboldt knows that moving companies can be extremely busy during the summer months, so they have gathered a number of educational tips to help families and individuals become more prepared. Here are some of these tips:

-Book a moving company in advance. As soon as a family or individual knows they are moving, they should book a moving company. In the summer months, moving companies are busy, so putting off booking a company could result in delays, or not getting the moving date that the mover wants.

-Communicate with the moving company. Make sure the moving company is aware of anything that comes up between the time they are booked and moving day. Extensive changes in the amount of household goods could affect the cost of a move, so it is important to communicate clearly with the moving consultant.

-When moving day arrives, pull aside all personal and fragile items. Items like cash, credit cards, wallet, and license are essential to have while the crew is moving. Also, give the crew a thorough walk-through of the home so they can determine where the heavy or bulky items are, i.e. heavy furniture, couches, tables. This allows the crew to plan for the move.

-It is always a nice gesture to provide the crew with some type of snack or drink. There is no set protocol on whether a mover needs to provide lunch, but the crew will greatly appreciate any effort put forth to feed them during the day.

-Finally, give the person in charge of the moving crew a final walk-through of the home after the belongings are moved. This ensures that nothing was missed during the move, and it gives you time to assess any potential damages or things left behind. Don’t forget that there is paperwork to be filled out at the end of every move as well.
