Moving for the first time

If you are moving for the first time then we hope your experience is not stressful and complicated. Unfortunately, moving is usually a complicated affair involving many different processes that have to go right and whose responsibilities are many and varied. Getting a fresh start, as many moves are is an exciting feeling but unless you plan the move out properly, the move can turn out to be a real mess. Acquiring enough boxes, organizing all of the vendors and suppliers that will be involved, and then deciding if you can accomplish the move on your own, or need the assistance of a real professional moving company. Depending on your individual circumstances, hiring a professional moving company in Boone NC might be your best choice, and choosing Tru-Pak Moving Systems will be your best solution. With Tru-Pak Moving getting a moving estimate is as easy as 1,2,3 with our online and/or telephone-manned professional moving estimators. We take the stress and feeling of being overwhelmed out of the equation. We also know there are many common mistakes made by first-time movers and below are some of the issues one should try and avoid.

Trying to Move on Your Own

This is an important decision for many people moving across the state or the nation. The hiring of a professional moving company like Tru-Pak Moving can have many distinct advantages chief among them is the 60 years of moving experience for every kind of move imaginable. Just remember how difficult it was to purchase a large piece of furniture, getting it into the house, and staging it properly. Now multiply that by all the pieces of furniture you plan on moving, wrapping for protection, and loading onto a truck. Are you really prepared both mentally and physically to move the contents of an entire house or condominium? Many first-time do-it-yourself movers believe that all of their friends would help when moving day came. But not every friend’s schedule is the same and many times things come up when that help is needed and now not available. That doesn’t happen with most professional moving companies. Truck rentals are not as cheap as one might believe when you add on all the extras like mileage, taxes, gas, insurance, and re-distribution charges. They can be expensive propositions. Certainly, employing a moving company will cost you more money but it can also be money well spent.

 Underestimating the Amount of time Needed for Packing

Most first-time movers don’t know how much time it takes to get organized to pack up their belongings. This can be problematic if someone is planning a move and doesn’t get started early enough to accomplish all they need to. At Tru-Pak Moving we have scheduled timelines for people moving and some of the activities start 2-3 months in advance. Waiting until the last minute can be a costly mistake in time, money, and energy, don’t wait.

Underestimating the Amount of Packing Supplies Needed

As you start the packing process you will need to purchase both boxes and packing materials; tape, markers, and bubble wrap for at least 20 boxes per room. Not having enough supplies is the number one, most visits to the store tasks, you will encounter when moving for the first time.

Skipping the De-cluttering Stage of Most Moves

First-time movers might not know that not every item they have acquired should be included in the move. There is nothing worse than packing up items that should really be discarded or maybe even sold at a garage sale prior to moving day. These monies could be used to subsidize your moving expenses. Additionally, packing and moving items that should be discarded is a costly proposition that will need to be dealt with at some point in time.
