At E-Z Movers, we understand that moving is a stressful event. Whether you’re local Chicago customers or interested in long distance moves to Kansas City or St. Louis, you want to make your move as short and hassle-free as possible.
The good news is that you can have a successful same-day move—leaving your old house and arriving permanently at your new house in one day. Here are some tips on moving efficiently in a single day.
Plan (far) ahead
It’s important to start planning your move as soon as possible. Contact your movers early to ensure you’re able to book the moving date you want. Let the moving company know that you’re planning a same-day move, and ask any questions you might have about the process.
You’ll also need to begin packing early for your move. Create a detailed moving strategy that includes a checklist (with completion dates) for things like getting rid of the items you’re not taking, packing all of your non-essentials, and packing everything but emergency items—if possible, this should be completed at least a few days before moving day.
Create an accurate inventory
Many people end up experiencing delays on moving day because the inventory they submitted to the movers was not complete. Your moving company will need to know about everything you plan to take with you, so they can make sure they use the right size truck to fit your belongings in one load.
Coordinate your services
Plan in advance when you’ll need utilities and services shut off at your old home, and turned on at your new home. Also, check with your moving destination to ensure that parking, elevators, and anything else that’s required will be available for the moving company on your moving day.
