First Time Movers: What You Need to Know
Moving can be challenging and stressful. But If your idea of moving is renting a beat-up truck, buying pizza for your friends and breaking your back to move your stuff to your new home, then you’re about to be pleasantly surprised.
WHAT TO KNOW:
When is the best time to move?
The best time to move is when it’s right for you. However, there are some times of the year that are busier for the moving industry than others. The summer months (May – September) and the end of each month are periods of heavier demand. That means you might have less choice of available moving dates.
Pack it up
Your local Wheaton World Wide Moving agent will gladly handle the packing and crating of all your goods, or only those you select. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, be sure to ask your agent about the self-packing guide and range of quality materials they have available. Our Packing & Unpacking page is a great place to start planning for packing for your upcoming move.
Load it up
On moving day, your driver carefully prepares your belongings for shipment, individually labeling each box to guarantee it won’t be misplaced. The condition of all goods is verified, and a detailed inventory is provided to you; only then are your possessions protected and secured inside the van.
Wheaton’s packers can help make your transition into your new home a smooth one by unpacking your belongings and removing all the cartons, or you can choose to settle in yourself.
