The Top Five Moving Gripes and How to Avoid Them

Moving is stressful! That’s the truth. However, with some careful planning, it’s possible to avoid common moving headaches. Here are five common complaints and stresses when it comes to moving, as well as possible solutions:

Problem No. 1: Packing
Solution: Packing is probably the chief complaint when it comes to moving. No one likes doing it, and once you pack, you have to unpack everything! Fortunately, there’s a very simple solution to this challenge: Hire a moving company that also offers packing services. The extra cost is worth the hassle, especially when time is of the essence.

Problem No. 2: Lost or broken items
Solution: When moving, everyone wants their items to arrive at their new location in the same condition they left the original location. To avoid this problem, hire a reputable moving company that is backed with strong reviews. Also, before hiring your moving company, do research on the insurance options they offer.

Problem No. 3: Storing your belongings
Solution: Sometimes moving schedules don’t align perfectly, so belongings might have to hang out in a storage facility for a few days. Opt for a full-service moving company that offers storage in addition to moving. Golan’s storage facilities are clean, climate-controlled and fire-proof to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your possessions.

Problem No. 4: Moving long distances
Solution: If you’re moving from Chicago to Los Angeles, unfortunately there’s no way to change the distance. However, select a moving company that specializes in long distance moves. These companies are familiar with the challenges associated with these lengthy moves.

Problem No. 5: Moving a car
Solution: Some households have more cars than people which make it difficult to transport your car to a new location. Other times, the distance is too long for driving. Many moving companies, including Golan’s, offer vehicle moving services to safely and efficiently get your car to your new location.
