Think About Your Pets

If you have pets, you’ll need to attend to their needs before you start packing, organizing and cleaning. First, you’ll need to update their identification tags.

There are many small things that you can do that will go a long way in streamlining your move. Here are a few tips for making your home move less stressful.

Be Creative

Time and space are at a premium in any move. A good way to make the most of these is to use clothes to pad your fragile objects.

Avoid Unlicensed Moving Companies

There are several sites that people often turn to when looking for one service or another. When it comes to moving companies there are numerous listed on sites like Yelp and Craigslist. The problem with these sites is that you never know what you are actually going to get. Anyone can list on these sites and many are not licensed. It is definitely in your best interests to avoid unlicensed moving companies.

When you deal with unlicensed moving companies, it means you are working with a business that is not monitored or regulated by the government. This should be a huge red flag because if they decide to take all of your belongings or take your money and never perform, you may just be out of luck. The regulating agencies will have no information on the unlicensed mover that took your money or your stuff, so they will not be able to provide much assistance.

Hiring a professional and licensed moving company may cost more than hiring an unlicensed moving company but there are many benefits to paying the higher cost. First, you will be dealing with a company that is accountable to state and local regulatory agencies. If something goes wrong, you have several options for resolving your dispute. You will also be dealing with a company that has proper insurance. Unlicensed moving companies will not be insured and this means that you could be liable if they are injured or cause property damage.

Do your research before hiring a moving company. Check out what other people are saying about them. Inquire about whether they are licensed or not and if they say they are, verify that with the California Public Utilities Commission.

Verify the moving company’s license. All moving companies are required by law to demonstrate their legitimacy on all their documentation.

Verify the license number with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) or the California Moving & Storage Association (CMSA).
