How to Prepare for a Stress Free House Move, A Step-by-step Guide. Moving house can be one of life’s most stressful events, but with the right planning and preparation, it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure your house move is as stress-free as possible:

Weeks 6-8 before Move:

  • Inventory Assessment: A professional estimator from Movers and Truck Pro will discuss on the phone or visit your home to conduct a detailed inventory of items to be moved, ensuring an accurate and transparent quote.
  • Customized Moving Strategy: Based on the inventory and your specific needs, we will create a tailored moving plan, including packing, loading, transportation, and unloading steps.
  • Supplies Delivery: If required by customer, provide high-quality moving boxes, tape, and packing materials for any items chosen to pack.

Weeks 4-5 Before Move:

  • Packing Service (if applicable): Begin packing non-essential items and decluttering. If you’ve opted for our full-service packing, our team will schedule a day to start the packing process.
  • Special Arrangements: Confirm any special arrangements for large, heavy, or delicate items such as pianos, antiques, or artwork.

Week 3 before Move:

  • Utilities and Services: Reminder to arrange for the transfer of utilities and cancel or set up new services (internet, cable, etc.).
  • Change of Address: Remind you to complete a change of address with the postal service and update important contacts.
