Man hand packing a moving boxMoving into a new home can be an exciting, but it comes with its own set of challenges. Whether it’s across town or across the country, a move require a considerable amount of effort in transporting your belongings into your new home. But the easiest way is to hire professional movers who can help you move and unpack your things.

Preparation is key when it comes to moving, so you won’t have to spend long hours on the road and pay more fees (movers are usually paid by the hour, after all). The professionals at Monster Moving and Storage share these tips to make the most out of hiring movers.

Know which items they can’t transport.

Not all items are accepted by professional movers. Many moving contractors have a list of articles that they will not accept for safety reasons. Some of these include hazardous household chemicals, liquids, and paints.

Other items such as photographs, pets, important documents, medicine, and cash may also not be accepted for liability reasons. If you plan on bringing them with you, you’ll have to pack and transport them yourself.

Prepare your packing plan.

It’s important to identify before your moving day if you’re leaving the packing job to the movers. If not, be sure to use plenty of bubble wrap, newspaper, and even some blankets for padding. This is crucial because if anything breaks during the move, you cannot hold the movers as liable for the damage. Have enough boxes on hand and put a label on each of them stating your name, the contents, and the room destination. This way you’ll have an easier time keeping track of everything.
Moving can be tough, but being prepared will make it smoother for you and the moving company. Follow these tips, and you’ll have an easier time moving into your property.
