It’s no wonder that Spring is one of the most popular times of the year for planning a move. Spring days are longer and warmer, yet the intense heat of summer hasn’t quite set in yet. School is out during Spring break, and school sessions are winding down—which can make things easier when dealing with school schedules and work transfers.
Overall, spring is a great season and just might be the perfect time for planning your next moving project. However, even with all of the benefits of a spring move, a lack of planning and preparation can make for a challenging moving experience during this season or at any time of the year.
At Heartland Allied, we know how important a well-organized, successful moving experience can be for our customers. Along with our full range of comprehensive moving and storage solutions, we’re also ready to provide our customers with everything they need to plan a perfect move. Here are some of our tried-and-true ways for making the most out of your spring move, brought to you be Heartland Allied—your trusted Kansas City movers.
Following the Steps Towards a Great Spring Relocation
Whether your move is small or large, you can count on a few constants that go a long way towards making your move smooth and stress-free. While the first most important step is hiring professional Kansas City movers to help you through the process, here are some other tips to follow that will help you plan an easier springtime move.
- Reach Out to Kansas City Moving Companies Early: There is no such thing as too early when it comes to scouting out Kansas City movers. Each moving company is different and will have different rates, experience, and services offered. Find the one that matches up with your budget and your needs. Also, don’t forget to get quotes, check their certification, and definitely verify if they’re insured.
- Lock-In Your Moving Dates: After you’ve gathered a number of quotes, it’s time to make your decision. Pick the moving company you want and then move quickly on to secure the official moving date. National Moving Month starts in May and kicks off the peak season for moving—which lasts throughout the summer and into the month of September. From the month of May onwards, you can count on rates to rise, and schedules to fill up quickly for the most popular Kansas City movers. Get the date confirmed in writing and then coordinate everything around that date.
- Organize Before You Pack: It can be tempting to just grab boxes and start shoving everything in them without a real, organized system. This can and will lead to absolute chaos on moving day and once you arrive at your new house, so make sure to try as hard as you can to get organized.
- Consider Your Packing Choices: When you have a moving company on hand, you have two options when it comes to packing. You can do it yourself, and if you choose to do so, we recommend labeling your boxes by room or room/name depending on what’s being packed. Option two is to have full-service movers do it for you for a seriously stress-free experience. Full-service movers will bring all the needed materials to pack up your entire home professionally and can even unpack it all for you in the new home as well.
One last note: It’s important to remember that not every service offered is included. Make sure the service you want is included in the quote provided to you, and take advantage of in-home consultations just to make sure you’re on the same page.
To do this, start by sorting out your belongings according to what you want to do with them. For example, make piles for things you’re keeping, things you’re selling, and what you’re planning on giving away or donating to charity. You’ll be surprised at how much won’t need to be packed, and you’ll be better prepared for the next step in the process.
