So you're moving and you're not sure where to start? Check this out!
Decide What’s Going and What’s Staying - One of the best things about moving homes is the opportunity to clear a little clutter from your life. There is no better time to clear your home and get rid of things you no longer wish to possess, than when you are preparing to move every single thing you own.
Figure Out How Much Work You Want to Do Yourself - Let’s face it. Moving can be a daunting task, that without much warning can explode into a much bigger chore than originally anticipated. Before you start, think about which parts of your move that you would like to do yourself, and which you would like to hire someone to do. Whatever you decide, most commercial moving companies are full service, and can step in to help finish your move and alleviate your stress any step of the way.
Finding a Mover - Hiring a mover can be tricky, as the market is saturated with companies, all with shiny trucks and flashy websites. With all of these distractions, it can be hard to tell who has the best service. Here are some things to look for.

- Are they insured?
- Are they licensed?
- What do they really charge? Base fees? Travel fees? Hourly rates? Extra charges for stairs and furniture assembly?
- What’s their availability like? Do they give you a window or a hard start time?
