But here's our number just in case you do want to go with us! (608) 208-6320
1. Book your moving date early with a moving company
Check out local moving companies in Madison WI and look at all the services which they offer. Make sure you get quotes to compare and confirm your booking as soon as possible so that you aren’t left stranded on the big day. Choose a reputable company which has adequate capability and capacity to tackle your move and not let you down.
2. Pack everything carefully and properly
Failing to pack your belongings properly can put them at risk of damage. Reputable Madison moving companies will want to make sure everything is packed and labelled before they start transporting your belongings to your new home. Many moving companies will happily supply boxes and packing materials for you so make sure you ask them about what they offer.
3. Moving special / heavy items
If you have any particular items such as a piano, or a large refrigerator, which might need specialist work on the day, be sure to let your moving company know in plenty of time. The moving team can advise on how best to pack and prepare the item for transit and they can bring any required equipment with them to lift it on the day of your big move.
4. Cancelling all of your bills
Make sure you contact all of the services and utilities which you are paying for in your current home, and give them your moving date and new address. That way you can rest easy knowing all the services will end when you move out and any final bills can be sent to your new place. Don’t forget to set up a redirection service for your mail as well.
5. Moving day kit
Create a moving day kit which you keep in your own car, rather than pack into the moving truck. This needs to contain all of the essential items you will need as soon as you get to your new home – things like toilet paper rolls, your toothbrushes, some snacks, your coffee maker, filters and coffee, etc... you know, the essential stuff ;) Also make sure you don’t pack your keys to your new home in a box somewhere! Anything that you will need in hand should go into the kit and be transported in your own car.
