If you are planning a local move in the Southern New England area, consider hiring a team of professionals to help you get from A to B. Even if you are just moving across town, it is important to understand that local moves in Massachusetts can be just as complicated and stressful as long-distance moves, especially if you need to move in the winter months. Contacting a company that handles residential moving in New England that has experience working with all kinds of northeastern weather conditions, locations and local regulations, can really help you to make a smart move no matter what time of year you are moving.
Move Smarter, Not Harder
Whether you use a moving company or rent a truck and do it yourself, it is important to make a moving checklist. The checklist can be used for planning a local move to make sure that you don’t forget anything important that needs to be done. Sometimes multiple lists are helpful, such as a pre-move list for packing and taking care of things, such as contacting utility companies, making provisions for pets during the move, and getting packing supplies to properly protect your belongings.
A day-of-move list can help you check off all the things you need, such as getting things from a storage unit or even moving things you won’t have room for at your new place into a storage unit. If you have things that you don’t need or don’t use anymore, why bring them with you on a move? All they do is take up space and create more of a hassle during the move. As you get ready to pack your things for the move, make sure to start by going through each room and area of your home, sorting everything into boxes or piles that are marked keep, toss, donate or storage.
Hire a Team of Pros
It is important to not “go cheap” when it comes to hiring local Cape Cod moving services for your local move in Southeastern Massachusetts. There are a lot of companies to choose from, but in the long run, you can end up losing a lot more than you save if you go with a cheap company that isn’t properly licensed, trained, experienced or insured. The same holds true with trying to move it yourself and relying on friends and family to help you properly move your stuff without breaking or losing anything.
When you start planning local moves in Massachusetts, start shopping around for companies that are experienced with residential moving in New England, like Statewide Moving Company. We have four locations to better serve our customers. Our West Yarmouth, Natick, Framingham and West Bridgewater locations can be contacted direct to help plan local and interstate moving from anywhere in the state. Going with a national company might seem like the thing to do, but if they don’t know the ins and outs of making moves out on the Cape and Islands, they aren’t going to be much help to your particular situation.
Packing Done Right
You have a couple of options available to you when it comes time to packing up your things for a local move. You can purchase packing supplies directly from your Cape Cod moving services, such as boxes, bubble wrap, tape, packing materials and specialty boxes. You can also opt to have the moving company take care of all these details for you and come out to your home to pack it all up prior to loading the truck and moving you across town. Still, another option is to go out and get your own supplies, use the original boxes that your specialty items came in – if you saved them, that is, and hope that you have all the materials you need to get the job done.
Make sure to mark each and every box with a large permanent marker. There are a couple of ways to go about this, as well. You can mark boxes based on the room that they are going to be unloaded into and then number them in order 1, 2, 3, etc. You can also mark them by the room and also include details about what is in them, such as “Kitchen – Dishes” or “Bedroom – Blankets” so things can be found quickly and easily. Still, another method is to create a list on a legal pad or in an app on your smartphone that lists the boxes in order and includes a list of every item that is in them. An example of an entry might be: “Box A1 – Kitchen – dinner plates, dish towels and everyday silverware” or “Box C3 – Master Bedroom – sheets, pillow cases, pillows and green blanket”.
