Basic Moving Tips

Here are some basic tips to help make your moving experience a little easier:

Select a mover that is licensed and insured. Go to www.cpuc.ca.gov to find licensed movers
Check the Moving Company (MTR) button, then enter the carrier ID or the Company Name

Step 2: Prepare for your Move

To make life easier don’t procrastinated and start packing as soon as you can. 30 days in advance is recommended for downsizing and organizing your household.
Label all of your boxes with a brief description of items and location. This will help the movers know where to place the items in your new home.

Step 3: What to Expect on Move Day

If you hire 123 Moving and Storage, before your move begins, the movers will do a complete “walk-through” of your home to familiarize themselves with your items and be made aware of any special needs.
123 will provide you with a copy of the contract, along with a customer service report, which are to be signed at the beginning and the end of your move.
