Top 5 Tips For A Flawless Moving Experience

The Moving Company voted the “Best Skilled Labor Work Force in Alabama” has rounded up a few expert-approved tips to keep you sane and totally prepared during your upcoming move. 

1. Give yourself time to pack up boxes. 
If you have the time, avoid boxing up your old place in one fell swoop. Remember, you’ll need some energy left to unpack, too. Bonus: Let us pack your home the day before your move.

2. Don't pack your closet. 
For local moves, Road Runner Moving takes your clothing right on the hangers to special racks in the truck, so your clothes will be in and out. Bonus: You can skip a full day of ironing once you're settled.

3. Switch your utilities.
This one may seem like a no-brainier, but timing is key! As soon as you have a moving date, call the utility companies and set up a service switch. This is especially important if you're moving into a home that is newly built or previously vacant.

4. Haul the basics before the moving truck comes. 
If your new place is within driving distance of your current home, plan to take basic supplies over the day before! Unpacking the bathrooms in advance and having pajamas and clothes for the next two days set aside will bring some normalcy to the chaos of the boxes. Bonus: Purge any junk or let us haul your junk to the dump.

5. Visualize life in your new home. 
The sooner you get unpacked and organized, the sooner it feels like home. If you move at a slower pace, plan out spots for your favorite pieces of art and decor in advance. You'll feel more accomplished and settled if you do. Bonus: we offer New Home Set-Up & Organization services.
