Boston's Oldest Moving Company Provides Tips on Planning a Local Move

Humboldt Storage and Moving Gives Advice on Relocating with Less Stress

Online PR News – 03-December-2012 – Boston, Mass – Humboldt Storage and Moving has been moving families both locally and over long distances for well over 100 years. As the oldest moving company in Boston and the largest United Van Lines agent they are experts in stress-free moving.

Moving is a process loaded with details and time management factors. Even when coordinating a local move, the idea of settling into a new place is exciting and most want to get everything done in one day. Although it seems feasible to close on a current residence, pack up belongings, close on a new residence and move into the new home all in one day; realistically it can be stressful.

Below are a few reasons consumers will benefit from executing a local move over two days instead of one. .

Better focus: Moving is a huge event even if you are just moving next door. Managing many details and rushing around while trying to crowd so many big events into one day ups the ante for something to go wrong. Taking an extra day to prepare for belongings to arrive and ensure paperwork on closings is completed properly makes a move much less stressful and helps things get done correctly the first time.

Good communication: In addition to all the details swirling around during a move, those relocating need to be certain they are following up and communicating well with realtors, moving companies and attorneys. Keeping a list of what information has been passed along is a good idea to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Belongings arrive the next day: Even during a short move, taking an extra night to settle into a new home for one night before belongings arrive can help the process go much smoother the next day. An extra night can help movers get some rest and take time to decide where items should be placed as they come off the truck the next day.

Avoid paying movers to sit around: The best advice is to have the home loaded into the moving van on the day of the closing and take delivery the following morning. When it comes to local moving, companies typically charge by the hour and the clock starts running when the movers arrive. If an unexpected issue arises while closing on the new home, a homeowner may find themselves paying the moving company to wait while the details are sorted out.

Taking one extra day during a local move to ensure details are finalized, closings are executed without incident and the new home is ready for belongings to arrive, will make the process much more efficient.
