How to Choose a Moving Company
Look around a few different places for moving companies.
Ask friends, ask storage facilities, google the area, and check Angie’s List. In Winston-Salem, NC, stop by the office for a recommendation. Do an initial screening of the company to check their viability and features. Ask if they are insured, if the company background checks employees, how long they have been in business, if they have the proper licenses to cross state lines, etc.
Get a written copy of inventory on moving day from the movers.
When your belongings arrive at your new home, immediately check for any damages/missing items. Packing your belongings is always part of the process when moving. The last thing you want to happen when you arrive at your new location is to have broken or damaged belongings.
Below are moving tips to make sure your belongings arrive safely at their new home and to make the process easier:
Disassemble larger furniture if possible. This will help to save space in the moving trucks, allowing you to fit more of your belongings in a smaller area.
Use zip lock bags or small containers for parts, such as the bolts or screws from furniture.
Attach the container/bag to the object it came from so that it’s easier to put back together.
