When you’re getting ready to make a move, there are lots of things that are going through your mind: will you be able to find a mover that you need – and once you find them, can you afford them? You may be worried about kids, pets, an elderly relative and what the impact of the move will be on them – there are any number of things that you will need to worry about before the big day gets there. Fortunately, you have decided to work with MoversUnion.com, which is the first step towards an excellent moving experience,
While some people are very comfortable with moving and do it quite often, others can be confused and not know where to start. Let’s face it, the majority of us will have at least one point during a move where we will despair of everything getting done in time. Here are a few tips for packing up your car for the final step of your move. Since the rest of your items will be moved by MoversUnion.com, you should have a very limited amount of information and details that you have to follow.

1. Check Everything Out

Depending on the length of your move, you may need to swap tires, get an oil change, air filter change, and any other type of preventative maintenance that you may have been selectively overlooking for the past few months. Get your maintenance notes together and assure you have a solid picture in mind before you start packing up the family sedan. Get an emissions inspection if those are required in your state.

2. Keep It Clean

This really should be a no-brainer, but you want to keep your car picked up and clean when you’re getting ready to move. There are myriad reasons why this is a great idea, but most important is that you will feel more organized if you are moving from one organized space to another – at least as much as possible. Pull out anything that could get damaged by shifting around or that you don’t need at right this moment.

3. Get Local Moves out of the Way

Having a local move is so much easier than a long-distance or cross-country move. Keep the luggage that you load on the top of your vehicle very light, and always think safety first. Leftover space can either be completely filled in, or you can add a human being who may actually be able to help when you arrive at your destination.

4. Moving On Out

When you are moving cross-country there are any number of people who are just interested in a quick buck before they move on to the next of their millions of potential targets in the U.S. Before you become a victim, carefully consider whether you want to ship your vehicle – regardless of the cost.
Stick with these various methods for getting your truck or car loaded successfully for your next move. Keep MoversUnion in mind for any more that is longer than across the street.

It makes sense how to pack your linens (folded), how to bundle your dishes (carefully!), and how to keep your appliances from knocking together (lots of blankets).
