Oregon, OR - Best Moving Companies & Movers

Working with an Oregon moving company is a fantastic idea if you want your experience to go as well as it possibly can. You may assume that all you have to do is get a quote and then book a time, but there are some other steps you may want to take. This is an event in life that most people want to go as smoothly as possible.

The tips below will help you get prepared before your big day arrives:

  • Gather the Keys

Make sure that you have all the keys that you need for your new place. If you are putting some of your stuff in a storage unit, you will need the gate access code and the key to your storage unit. Gather the garage door opener and door key for your new place and have all of that readily accessible for your move day. That is not a time to be scrambling around for keys.

  • Activate the Utilities

Make sure you get all of your utilities and other household necessities turned on before you arrive in your new location. While this may not be a complete necessity, it will be one less thing you have to think about on moving day. The moment you know when you can move, call the city to get water, electricity, gas, cable, phone, and any other services you need turned on. Then you will be able to relax on your first night in the new place.

  • Skip the Small Loads

Take some time to take some of the smaller loads of things you don’t need over to the new place on your own. Some companies will take a long time to help someone because they have to make repeated trips in a house for small items. If you can run items over in your car, do so. If you are going a longer distance, try to pack as much as you possibly can and put it by the door.
