Moving in together after you get married is always exciting. However, no matter how much you are looking forward to your life together, moving to a new place together is a lot of work. Before you start your move it is a good idea to decide what you want to take with you and what you want to get rid of. This can help you narrow down the task of packing. You can simply take the things you dont want to a charity and give them the donation. If you want to try to sell some things you can do that too before you move so you wont have so much to pack up and take with you. In fact, having a garage sell first before you move is always a good idea.
One of the best things to do is to make a list. You can find these lists online now already made up for you if you visit moving company websites. If you are going to hire a moving company you need to keep a few things in mind. First of all, reputation and reliability is always a priority. Dont use a mover that has a bad reputation or that has a lot of complaints on the Better Business Bureau website. Unfortunately some movers are not all they say they are. Some are even in business to scam people so you need to use caution when hiring movers.
Moving companies are normally very happy to give you a quote for their services. If you decide to go ahead and hire that mover, make sure you get the quote in writing though. There will be no surprises at the end of the move. The moving quote actually protects the moving company too since their customers can throw in a huge piano or pool table that they forgot about when informing the moving company about their stuff. Look for a moving company that is insured and that keeps their trucks and equipment in good working order.
Moving companies will also have courteous and friendly staff if they are interested in pleasing their customers. If you call a moving company and they are rude or if you get any kind of idea that they are not professional, pass them up. The best protection for you and your new spouse is to only use a professional moving company that you can entrust your belongings to.
