How to Avoid Disasters on Moving Day

Even if all goes perfectly, moving can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. By being aware of some potential pitfalls, and with planning ahead, you can avoid some of the disasters that may otherwise befall you. Here are some tips to make your move go a bit easier.

Plan Ahead

Preparing your move at least a month or two in advance will go a long way towards eliminating bad surprises on the day of your move. Never wait until the last minute to choose a moving company or your options will be extremely limited. You might get stuck with an unreliable company that is available at the last minute for a reason.

When you’re looking for movers in Ft. Worth, make sure whatever company you hire is certified with the state of Texas. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles provides an online database to check certifications:

Reputable movers in Ft. Worth will provide references. Feel free to contact your prospective mover for references.

It’s a good idea to get at least three written estimates from different companies. Be wary of estimates by phone. Legitimate companies will always insist on actually seeing and inspecting your items.

Pack appropriately

Don’t wait until the last minute to pack or you might be unprepared on moving day. Fireman Movers can pack for you if you feel overwhelmed.

Make sure that all delicate items are carefully packed in bubble wrap, towels, foam, or newspaper. Avoid mixing fragile pieces with anything heavy. Choose boxes that are in good condition and are the appropriate size for the items you’re packing. For example, a large box loaded with heavy items will be hard to move and might collapse.

Label your boxes

Unpacking will be much easier if you label your boxes appropriately. Marking the appropriate room or type of item helps movers place your boxes in the right locations and facilitates organizing and prioritizing unpacking.

Check to see if your mover is able to move all your items

Movers are unable to transport certain items by law. Your company will provide a list of these “non-allowables” on request. Non-allowables typically include not only items you’d expect like loaded weapons and toxic chemicals but also more innocuous items like nail polish removers and childrens’ chemistry sets.

Avoid dented walls

Hiring a good mover ensures that heavy furniture and large boxes won’t scuff, dent, or crack your walls. Fireman Movers provides furniture pads and other equipment to make sure your walls remain intact.

Consider buying additional insurance coverage

Movers typically insure your possessions at 60 cents per pound. This means that your 30-pound widescreen TV will only be covered for $18. If you already have renters or homeowner’s insurance, check with your insurance company to see if your move is covered in your policy.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. I was so stressing over moving my woodworking shop and had nightmares of all that would go wrong. Plus add on my house stuff too it was freaking me out. I didn’t think we would get it all moved. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were up beat and had an attitude of “let’s get it done”. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth.

    Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.

    Thanks so much!
