MAIN Arrow to Moving Moving

Before You Move, Get Moving Online...

The Web offers tools & tips on packing, moving and settling in
to help make the whole moving process easier than ever.

look online for great moving and relocation tipsGone are the days of making endless phone calls or relying solely on friends and neighbors for advice to help prepare for that big move.

Online, you can read expert guides and visitor reviews, take advantage of interactive tools & calculators, and get help with practically everything else you need — from U.S. change-of-address forms to cyber greeting cards that announce your move to the world.

Get moving online

When surfing the Net, a good rule of thumb is the bigger the site, the better the resources. Sure, the big haulers have a vested interest in providing you with information on how to make that big move. Hey, maybe you'll hire them! But they still have excellent tips to share on safely moving you, your family, and your belongings.

For example, surf over to Mayflower moving tips to find facts you may have never thought of when planning a move -- such as what most licensed operators won't allow on their moving vans (e.g., hazardous materials, such as sterno and paint thinner) along with a really helpful checklist for moving day (hint: have you remembered to fill necessary prescriptions and collected medical records from your doctor before you go?)

For a list of questions to ask your mover plus other money-saving how to's, Moving.com also offers lots of additional expert help. The long list of related articles offers ways to avoid common moving blunders like forgetting to label EVERYTHING, as well as a very helpful moving day checklist.

You can also avail yourself of 'been there, done that' advice from experienced hands found in online forums such as CityData.com, and MovingScam.com.

Ikea? Yes, they have their own customer-friendly guide to packing up and moving including an itinerary, a pre-move checklist, and related tips.
