Your Residential Move: From Start to Finish
Choosing Residential Movers in Vancouver WA
When deciding on a moving company, start by asking your friends and neighbors who they used for their recent moves. They’ll be one of the best sources for up-to-date info on which residential movers are doing a great job in the Vancouver area.
Make sure to talk to a few different moving companies and get estimates in writing and make sure you understand all of the costs. Make sure to see their permit from the Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC). Finding a residential moving company you feel comfortable with and can trust will make your residential move easier.
Scheduling Your Move
Sometimes you can’t plan a move months in advance. But if your schedule allows it, you’ll have a bit more flexibility if you can move during the spring, fall, or winter. That’s because summer is when most people move and it’s a busy time for residential movers. But no matter when you’re moving, ANC movers would love to help you!
Don’t forget to check local event calendars, too. You don’t want to move on the day of a big parade or marathon when roads may be closed.
Packing & Labeling Tips
If you’re handling the packing yourself, start earlier than you think you should! Last-minute packing on the day of the move really adds to the stress.
Make sure to use boxes that are designed for moving computers, TVs, and other fragile items. And don’t forget to label boxes! Use a big permanent marker and label boxes with their contents AND where they should end up in your new home.
The Day of Your Move
Relax! With thorough planning and a great residential moving company, the day of the move really can be stress free. Get an early start and you’ll be able to enjoy your first night in your new home without any worries on your mind.
Our Residential Moving Services
Whether you want to do all of the packing yourself, leave the whole move to us, or something in between, our residential movers have a package that will work for you.
You Pack & Unpack
You’ll be in charge of packing and wrapping your belongings. Our team will handle the loading and unloading. Then you’ll finish up by unpacking at your final destination.
We Pack & Unpack
We do it all. Packing, wrapping, loading, transporting, unloading and unpacking. You just tell us where everything goes at your new house.
If you want to split the difference between full service and DIY moves, we can work with you. Do you want us to handle packing, but want to unpack yourself? No problem. Just let us know the kind of Combination Package you have in mind.
Want a big piece of furniture dropped off at a friend’s house? Downsizing and need to put some items in storage? Picking up a new sofa from the furniture store? We can arrange to have multiple pick-up and drop-off locations on the day of your move.
