As a local moving company, we understand what it takes to ensure exceptional service and how to build a friendly relationship with every customer.

There are many mistakes that can make your move a hassle, and in this post, we’ll look at some common ones and how you can avoid them.

1. Trying to Move Everything You Own

If you’ve lived in the same house for many years, then there’s a good chance that you’ve amassed quite a few belongings. If you’re someone who never throws anything out or has a hard time donating items when they’re no longer useful, then you may have quite a few things that you plan on putting in the moving truck. Trying to move everything you own can make the process more burdensome than necessary, and taking some time to go through each room and getting rid of some things can greatly alleviate your stress.

2. Leaving Things to the Last Minute

There’s a lot that goes into moving, and leaving things to the last minute can make life unbearable for a few days. You’ll want to make sure you’ve notified the post office, your utility companies, and your bank that you are moving, and you’ll want to be sure that the moving company you’ve hired will be there on the right date. You definitely don’t want to leave packing to the last minute, as that can make you want to pull your hair out. With our professional packing and moving services, we can help you get everything ready to go, while you focus on notifying those who need to know that you’re moving.

3. Not Labeling Your Boxes

Cardboard boxes are the backbone of any move, but if you don’t label them, they can quickly become the most frustrating part of your move. Not labeling your boxes can cause them to be put in the wrong room, or they could be stacked incorrectly in the truck, which can lead to something fragile or valuable being broken. Writing down the contents of each box on the side and top of the box will let our team know what needs to go where in your new place, and marking boxes as “Fragile” will ensure that they are handled with care. We will treat all of your belongings with respect, and make sure they arrive in perfect condition.

These are just three of the more common moving mistakes that you can encounter as you plan to relocate. At Billy Goat, we’re here to make sure your move goes smoothly, and no matter where you’re going in Colorado, we’ll take care of your belongings.
