Movers in Orlando: How to Prepare for Home Moves, Office Moves, and Cross-Country Moves

Moving can be a stressful situation, regardless of the type of move and distance of the relocation. There are many options for movers in Orlando, and it is easy to get swamped with the details and forget some of the essentials. At Family Movers Express, we want to make it easy for you. Whether you are moving across the country, relocating an office, or moving your family to a new home down the street, we have a few tips on how to prepare for your move.

Residential Moving Tips

If you are moving into a new home, the most important thing to do is to stay organized.

Prepare a Checklist

When you are changing addresses, it is important to set up mail forwarding, start utility accounts, cancel local memberships, update doctor’s offices, and much more. When you work with Family Movers Express, we will provide you with organized moving checklists to complete and help keep you on track.

Purge Unnecessary Items

When it comes time to make a family move, going through items you prepare to pack is a great way to purge any unnecessary belongings like outgrown clothing or miscellaneous knick-knacks. You may choose to donate any items that you decide are not coming on the move, and often we see families make a little extra money before the move by selling anything they no longer need.

Ensure Your Safety

Whether you are moving coast to coast or just down the block, you want to make sure that your safety and the safety of your most fragile belongings is at the forefront of your concerns. Our experienced drivers have seen it all, from winding mountain roads to blistering winds in the flat prairie states. We will ensure that your belongings will be professionally packed and loaded and that they stay safe and sound on the road in the care of our truck drivers.

Pack Well

Time and time again we see families rushing to pack boxes as their move date draws near. We provide packing materials and boxes, and we also offer packing services to clearly pack and label the furniture and contents of your entire house. Nothing makes a move less stressful than being able to easily locate all of your belongings in your new residence. We also make sure to secure valuable and fragile items with our expert secure packing service.

Office Moving Tips

Planning and completing a professional office move is a common concern for many of our clients. At Family Movers Express, we offer services to help transport your entire office. We take the hassle out of any difficult or stressful move.

Prepare Computers

When you are planning to relocate an office space, preparing your computers and office equipment for the move is very important. Of course, we will pack everything up using our expert secure packing method, but we often remind our clients to make sure that all computers are prepared for the move. This means making sure you have a good inventory list and that all computers and devices are turned off and powered down.

Set Up a Timeline

Keeping your business up and running is our primary concern. We want to move your office space as quickly and efficiently as we can. We always suggest to our clients to have a clear timeline setup for their office move. This will help to prepare your business’ clients and employees for a transition, however brief.
