Moving Tips

Below are some moving tips you may not have thought about.

One of the best ways to make your move easier is to hire a professional moving company like Allied Moving & Services. We can handle all of the heavy lifting and logistics for you, so you can focus on other things. We have insurance in case anything gets damaged during the move. Using use is great if you have a lot of stuff or if you’re not particularly strong. If you are in the Texas Hill Country, Allied Moving & Services can help you with your move.


Packing is one of the most important – and most tedious – aspects of moving. If you want to make sure everything arrives at your new home in one piece, you need to use us because we pack carefully. One thing you can do is get rid of anything you don’t need or use anymore. This will lighten your load and make packing easier. We use strong boxes and tape and label each box with its contents. This will make unpacking a lot easier.

Pack an Essentials Bag

No matter how well you plan, there’s always a chance that something will go wrong on a moving day. To be prepared for any eventuality, pack an essentials bag with everything you might need – including snacks, water, toiletries, and a change of clothes. That way, if something does go wrong, you’ll have everything you need to get by.

Pack an Overnight Bag

When you’re packing for your move, be sure to pack an overnight bag with everything you’ll need for the first few nights in your new home. This way, you won’t have to rummage through boxes to find your toothbrush or a change of clothes. Include items like pajamas, toiletries, and a few days’ worth of clothes.

Ask For Help

Moving is a lot of work, and it’s not something you should try to do alone. We can help even if it’s just for a few hours. We will help you with things like packing, loading the moving truck, and unpacking at your new place.

Set Up Utilities

One of the things that you need to do before you move is to set up your utilities at your new home. This includes things like electricity, gas, water, and trash service. You will need to contact the relevant companies and give them your new address. Most utility companies will require you to set up an account with them before they can provide service. This is usually a simple process, but it’s important to do it in advance so that you’re not without utilities when you move in.

Change Your Address

Another thing that you need to do before you move is to change your address with the post office. This will ensure your mail gets forwarded to your new home. You can change your address online or at your local post office. You will need to provide proof of your new address, so be sure to have this ready before you go. For instance, in the Texas Hill Country, you can use a driver’s license, lease agreement, or utility bill for this purpose.

Notify Important People and Companies

When you move, you need to notify important people and companies of your new address. This includes your family and friends, your doctor, your bank, and your employer. You may also need to update your driver’s license and vehicle registration. Be sure to make a list of everyone that you need to notify so that you don’t forget anyone. For instance, many people forget to update their address with the DMV.

Moving can be a stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Allied Moving & Services can make your move as smooth and trouble-free as possible. So what are you waiting for? Get started today!
