Moving You Near or Far
Moving across town and across country aren’t actually so different. Either way, you need to pack up all of your belongings, load up a truck, and unload everything when you arrive. The only real difference is time.
Regardless of how far you’re moving, you need to be ready for the big day. That means having your belongings packed well. Even with short trips, there’s still room for error. Something might break in one of your boxes if you don’t use bubble wrap and other packing materials. Your movers might be late, or you might not get the keys to your new place on time.
Whether you’re moving near or far, myBekins can make sure you and all your belongings arrive safely and on time. We know a move can be a stressful time, and we’re committed to making things just a little easier for you, no matter how far you’re moving. We promise to arrive promptly and use expert care when moving your boxes.
Cross Country Moving Tips
When it comes to cross country moving tips, there’s a lot to think about. For example, you need to consider how long it will take you and your movers to make the drive and important factors such as traffic and weather. You also need to make sure certain possessions are taken care of before the move, like planning what to do with your pet while you move or how you’re going to move your house plants.
At myBekins, we understand how stressful a cross country move can be, and we’re ready to help you make sure yours goes smoothly. We’ll work with you to supply all your packing materials, and we’ll even do the packing for you if needed. When it’s time to move, we’ll coordinate with you to make sure our moving experts are on time and arrive with you at your new destination. At your new home, we’ll unload all of your belongings and ensure your satisfaction before leaving.
Tips for Moving Overseas
Maybe you’ve gotten a new job in a different country or perhaps you’re studying abroad for a few years. Whatever the reason, you’re moving overseas, and you’re going to need some help if you want things to go smoothly. Luckily, the experts at myBekins know just how to help.
Check out these tips:
- Put all travel documents in one folder. You don’t want to arrive only to find that one of your important documents is in another suitcase. Make a checklist of all documents needed and double-check it before you pack up.
- Consider leaving big-ticket items behind. The truth is that it might be cheaper to buy a new car or furniture overseas rather than shipping the items you have. Consider selling your big-ticket items now and using the money to buy new ones.
- Plan well in advance. The last thing you want to do is wait until the last minute to start planning an overseas move. Get started months, not weeks, before the move.
If you need more advice, call myBekins, and we’ll help you plan your move.
How do I compare the long distance moving options?
When planning for a long distance move, it’s important to weigh your options before making a decision. You might choose to ask friends to help you move, or you might hire a moving company.
Asking your friends to help you move long distance is a risky venture. Long distance moves can be time-consuming, and while some friends may think they have the time, they might end up cancelling unexpectedly if something comes up at work or with their own families. They also may not be as careful with your belongings as you’d like.
If you hire a moving company, make sure you do plenty of research before you choose a company. Get quotes and estimates for the services you need, which might include packing, moving, and storing. Check out online reviews to hear what other people said about working with the company and ask your friends and family members for recommendations.
What qualities should I look for in a long distance mover?
If you’re moving, you shouldn’t ever choose the first moving company you find. Every moving company is different, and they don’t all handle long distance moves in the same way. Before you choose a moving company, there are a few qualities you should look for first.
- A moving company with a good reputation will give you peace of mind. You’ll feel confident as you move, and if something does go wrong, you know your moving company will help you out.
- Security means keeping your possessions safe for the long trip. That means storing your boxes carefully and protecting against burglars. Make sure your company is safe and secure.
- Some moving companies will charge high prices thinking people will pay more for a “better service,” but paying more doesn’t always mean the service will be better. The best moving companies are fair and offer competitive pricing.
What packing options do you offer?
MyBekins does offer professional packing services to all of our customers. We know how busy you are, and when you have so much to do, packing can feel like a chore. If you don’t have the time or the materials to do the packing, let our professionals do it for you.
Our packing professionals will see that your packing job gets done right. We’ll bring our own supplies from boxes to bubble wrap to packing tape, so you won’t have to supply anything. We have years of experience moving breakables and other important possessions, and we’ll take extra care when packing your valuables. With our services, you’ll save time and energy.
Our company also offers custom crating options for any item you need to move. No matter how oddly shaped your item might be, we’ll construct a crate that will fit your item and keep it secure as you move. We use high quality wood, so you know our crates won’t break during the move.
What am I not allowed to bring with me on my move?
There are some things that myBekins will not move for customers. These items must be moved by the owner.
Hazardous materials will not be moved. Some of these substances include…
- Cleaning solvents
- Liquid bleach
- Loaded guns
- Nail polish
- Paint thinner
- Pool chemicals
These are only some chemicals and items we won’t move, but there are others. Contact us at myBekins for a more extensive list.
Perishable food will also not be moved on long distance moves. With no refrigeration, these items spoil and sometimes spill, causing big messes in our trucks. Food can also attract rats and other pests that could get into your other boxes. We will not move these items.
We highly advise against moving personal or sentimental items, such as medical or financial documents, cash, or expensive jewelry in the moving truck. Items this personal and important are better off staying with you just in case a rare issue happens while transporting your items. For more details about what we won’t move, contact us at myBekins.
