Moving in a big city such as St. Louis might seem challenging, but even the most complicated city move can be made easy with a little advance planning and quality assistance. The St. Louis local movers at Federal Companies have been helping families relocate for over 40 years, and have some pre-move recommendations that will make your transition easier. Five steps you should take before moving day are:
- Get Estimates from Several Moving Companies
In order to find the best service at the most equitable price, you should get written, in-home estimates from at least three moving companies.
More stuff on moving day means a higher bill. If there are items in your home that you don’t want or need, consider donating them or holding a yard sale.
- Transfer Services
Call at least a week ahead and arrange for your electricity, cable and other utilities to be transferred to your new address. Make sure you schedule setup for at least a day in advance – you won’t appreciate unpacking in the dark!
- Ask About Elevators, Parking
If you’re moving into a building, make sure that you’ve inquired about necessities such as elevator space and parking in advance.
- Expect the Unexpected
St. Louis can get extremely hot or cold depending on the season, so check the forecast for possible weather-related setbacks in advance. Keep food, clothing, and first aid supplies nearby, and pack extra food and medication for pets.
