Make a list
Start your move out as simple as possible and make a list of things that are going to your new home and what can stay. This list will give any moving company a better understanding of what the job will take and be able to give better estimates accordingly.
Have plenty of supplies
Transitioning from making a list once you know what you will be moving you should be able to have a rough estimate of the supplies you will need to make your move as accommodating as possible.
Utilize wardrobe boxes
Wardrobe boxes are entirely under-utilized with moves today. They have the capability of hanging a particular amount of your clothes inside the box. It keeps your clothes unwrinkled and organized.
You never want to have to deal with not knowing which box is which immediately after a long day of moving. Spending a little amount of time just labeling your items and what they are will save you so much time in the long run.
You not only want to get quotes for your move but you also want to ask for a guaranteed amount they will not charge over. This will help give you a better estimate of what the big day will cost and give you peace of mind it won't exceed a certain amount.
