List of The Best Moving Tips

In the following list we have put together our best moving tips.

1 – Grab a Day 1 Bag

Chances are, you’re too tired to unpack all your stuff. You just pack a bag with all the necessary things, such as clothes for the next day and toiletries. It’s also a great way to transport your laptop. So it can not be stolen during the move.

2 – Pack the things you need first in a transparent box

This includes things like a cutter, kitchen roll, trash bags, cutlery, charging cables and so on. It allows you to find things the same, as the box is transparent and stands out from the other moving boxes.

3 – Pack fragile things in clothes

Here you kill two birds with one stone. You pack your clothes and fragile items at the same time.

PACKING TIPS

4 – Pack your glasses and fragile things in clean socks

This will provide you with extra padding without having to buy expensive padding material. You also do something for the environment.

5 – Label the moving boxes with the room they belong to

Once you arrive at your new home, unpack your boxes room by room. So all the chaos seems clearer. And your things are right where they belong.

6 – Clean the bathroom and kitchen in the new home before moving

Hang a shower curtain, populate the toilet with toilet paper and make sure towels are provided. You definitely want to take a hot shower after the move.

7 – Fill your make up with a cotton ball

So you prevent it from breaking and messing up other things. In the worst case, your clothes.

8 – Cover the openings of your toiletries with cling film and then screw the lid back on top

This prevents leakage during the move. This tip also helps protect your clothes and other things.

9 – Pack your dishes vertically in the boxes

This protects the dishes from breaking.

10 – Protect your drawers by covering them with plastic wrap

Then you do not have to empty all drawers.

11 – Cling film is also suitable for covering and protecting jewelry

This is important so that small parts are not lost.

12 – Get stretch film

With this you can hold different things together in groups. The film is also suitable for attaching screws to furniture.

13 – Use bread bags to store small things

Also, you do something for the environment and do not waste tons of zip bags.

14 – Defrost your freezer the day before the move

Then you can hand it over clean on the move day.

15 – Take a picture of how your electronics are connected

Then you can connect TV, console, stereos and all your other technology right back.

16 – Use your bags and suitcases instead of moving boxes

This will save you at least a few moving boxes and your bags and cases have to be transported anyway.

17 – Put a trash bag over your clothes hanging in the closet

Or alternatively remove the films from the cleaning. So your clothes are protected during the move.

18 – Vacuum your clothes that are out of season

This takes up very little space and they can simply be put back in the closet in the new home.

7 PACKING TIPS TO ACCIDENT-PROOF IN MOVING

7 Packing Tips To Accident-Proof in Moving

Unfortunately, moving houses and the risk of property damage tend to be close relatives. Even those with expertise in residential moving know that anything can happen. But there are ways to minimize the risk of damage. 

The secret is how you pack your belongings, and particularly those fragile or highly valuable ones. At Beast Cheap Movers Orange County, our residential moving services can include full-service packing and packing supplies, but you can still opt to do most of the packing yourself.

How can you best guard against in-transit accidents? Here we share 7 packing tips that should see your belongings completing the journey safe and sound!

PACKING TIPS

Extra Padding

Even for relatively short-distance or local residential moving, for instance, moving from Irvine to a Huntington Beach has its share of risks thanks to bumpy roads and sudden stops. So feel free to be liberal with the padding! Bubble wrap and newspaper are long-established favorites but don’t forget unconventional alternatives, like sweaters, scarves, blankets and even socks.

Plates and Dishes

It’s not unheard of after a residential move to begin unpacking and discover a few broken plates and saucers – it’s usually due to truck vibrations. The secret is to pack them individually on their sides, just like in a dishwasher! Make sure their edges are securely wrapped with bubble wrap with little room to move around.

Fragile Objects

We’ve touched on plates and dishes, but keep in mind that jugs, glasses, china cups and the like should be packed separately with their cavities filled. Socks are excellent for this! Be sure to pack them in large boxes with pillows or blankets to absorb the vibrations.

Bulbs

A tricky item, but it might just fit in the drawers in the dresser! Wrap the base in a towel, and disassemble if possible. The furniture is stable, and the towel provides great buffering going around tight corners. The shades can be boxed. 

Electronics

Residential movers usually advise electronics be packed in their original boxes. But chances are they’ve been thrown out long ago! Instead, wrap each component separately, then secure the main item in bubble wrap, set it into the center of a box walled by a blanket. Add the smaller components on top, wrapped in extra padding.

Mirrors and Paintings 

It’s best to get a frame box for any large mirrors or valuable paintings. Most residential moving services will offer them (we do!) but be sure to fill the space between the mirror and the box walls. Again, a blanket or sweater is ideal for this.

Antique Furniture

To protect valuable antique furniture, you can wrap a thick winter blanket around the main body. The material won’t tear while moving but be sure to wipe surfaces clean first so no small particles can cause damage under the padding. Smaller kitchen towels and sweaters can be used around the legs.

PROTECT YOUR HOME WHILE MOVING

PROTECT YOUR HOME WHILE MOVING

Both the home you’re vacating and the one you’re moving into deserve tender loving care. Even if you never liked the space you lived in before moving, there’s no reason to leave behind excessive damage for the next resident. Would you want to move to a house that suffered abuse by its movers or previous owners? Good movers prevent this damage by using moving techniques that coddle your home and its contents like you’d handle a newborn. In order to protect your home on moving day, peruse these methods.

protect home during moving

Advance Moving Preparations

Walk through every room beforehand to troubleshoot spots that may trip you or the movers up. Ensure your house is clean, uncluttered, and free from obstacles. Note narrow entryways, slippery floors, and steep steps and watch out for chandeliers and ceiling fans that hang low, says Smithsonian Institute. Planning how to move pieces and jotting down measurements in advance will ease the process. Using both hands, move furniture slowly and steadily, facing forward, continues Smithsonian Institute. While in tricky moving positions, My Moving Reviews suggests enlisting a “spotter” who will notify you when you’re courting danger. Dress without adornment, so your clothing and accouterment don’t get in the way or caught on anything.

Artwork and Other Valuables

Ensure irreplaceable heirlooms, expensive artwork and other valuables are packed first, in layers, says Angie’s List, so they’re out of harm’s way. Place them in storage to protect them while you move.

Flooring and Carpeting

You didn’t buff your hardwood floors or shampoo your carpets to see them scratched and soiled. Protect them from foot and furniture treads by placing plastic or cloth tarps down or use plywood sheets or carpet film protectors, recommends My Moving Reviews. If you have extra moving boxes, dismantle them to create a path. Carry furniture across floors and roll up carpet when necessary. Before entering, wipe feet on the doormat.

Furniture and Appliances

Take inventory and check your furniture for previous damage, photographing each piece for reference. When delivered, double-check for new damage. Always use straps to secure furniture, and moving pads to cover them. Use a handcart for further assistance. 

Doorways and Walls

Doorways take the brunt of moving day, so protect them by padding them with foam, suggests My Moving Reviews, or temporarily take them off the hinges. Pad narrow hallways, too, so they’re not scratched or dented. Banisters also suffer, even break, says My Moving Reviews, so cover them with moving pads.

How to Protect Your New Home

Once you’ve settled in your new home, now’s the time to safeguard it from damage. By using felt pads under furniture and rubber pads under small kitchen appliances, says Martha Stewart, you can prevent scratches and scuffs. Different pads exist for every type of furniture and household item, so investigate what you need and visit your local home or hardware store or website to buy them. Other protective measures include doorstops and corner guards that not only prevent marks on walls but protect little ones from bumping their heads. With a little elbow grease and padding, you can protect every surface of your home and keep it looking great, too.

MOVING WITH YOUR CAR

Cheap Moving Company

Best Cheap Movers Orange County

MOVING WITH CAR:

Moving by car is already an art on its own. But if you do not try to optimize the available room in your vehicle, this task quickly becomes an impossible mission. Best Cheap Movers gives you all the advice you need to get the challenge off the job and move it successfully.

moving with car

Tips for optimal loading:

Whether you own a small city car or a commercial vehicle, whether you only move to the street next door or to another end of California, the basic rules regarding safe loading generally remain the same. Use the lower part of your trunk for heavy and unwieldy items, such as small furniture – whose existing drawers can fill you with lighter things – or the largest boxes and cases.

It is recommended to place more flexible objects over the large items and in the interstices, which are used at the same time to optimize the space utilization. Doing this way you can avoid scratches and damage to your belongings and car. This is especially suitable for clothes or bed linen. Instead of moving boxes You can pack these things in garbage bags. These are flexible and additionally protect the fabrics. As soon as the boot is well filled, you can also use the rear seat if necessary. There you can use the space under the seats, as far as possible and the rear seats themselves. Make sure that the objects are sufficiently secured. Be sure to refrain from using the back seat if safe transport cannot be guaranteed. Strong braking maneuvers can lead to dangerous situations for life and limb.

Use accessories to move:

Useful for the holidays, transport accessories such as roof racks or bike racks can be invaluable for a move. By attaching a roof box to your vehicle, you can gain valuable cubic meters to optimize trips between your old and new homes. If you are able and confident enough to rank with a trailer, do not hesitate to use one. If you do not own one, trailers can be rented relatively cheaply at most car rental companies.

But beware, do not exaggerate when loading. Each vehicle has a certain weight limit, which must not be exceeded, the so-called permissible total weight. In addition, the vertical load must be taken into account if you use a trailer. Check this information on the vehicle registration card before you start loading. If in doubt, this weight can be determined in car repair shops or by load-bearing scales.

Moving with your car: good or bad idea?

Well, moving is a difficult, complicated, and hectic job along with being stressful. Movers work very hard to offer you a better moving experience. So, make sure that you offer something like bananas, soft drinks, or something like that to boost up their energy.

What size moving truck?

Whether it’s small or larger volumes, even a large commercial truck or van quickly reaches its limits when it comes to moving an entire apartment or even a house. As a rule, driving is only practicable if your new home is not far away – so you do not have to travel too far – or if you can count on friends’ vehicles in addition. Also, do not forget to check before moving if the largest object fits in the car or on the trailer. This will save you a nasty surprise on the move day.

Also, think about things that are often overlooked in advance. If, for example, the bed can be disassembled, then that does not apply to the mattress!

In times of cheap moving offers and convenient online booking, moving by car seems less easy and practical solution.

TIPS HOW TO MAKE MOVING EASY

If you’re about to move to a different place, whether it’s a new city or a new state, you should definitely plan your moving properly. It’s a well-known fact that moving can get really stressful and complicated. But not all moving activities are not supposed to be hectic, if you plan and execute it appropriately. If you’re looking forward how to make your moving easy and smooth, you should follow these things:

HOW TO MAKE MOVING EASY

Pack & Label ahead:

If you’re thinking of saving some money and time as well, you should definitely pack your things and label them well before the moving. If you do that, your things get more organized and it’s much easier to load them and eventually move them without any hassles. By doing this, you’re making your job and the movers’ job easy. You can do this activity on the day before the moving date.

Pack Valuable and Fragile items in your car:

Everyone usually possesses some valuable and fragile items such as ornaments, glass items, artwork, expensive electronics, and several other similar things. Rather than getting them into the whole package, it’s better to move these things along with you in your car. By doing so, you’re lowering the chances of them getting damaged.

Offer refreshments to your movers:

Well, moving is a difficult, complicated, and hectic job along with being stressful. Movers work very hard to offer you a better moving experience. So, make sure that you offer something like bananas, soft drinks, or something like that to boost up their energy.

If you do hire movers, be sure they don’t have weird rules:

Avoid moving company scams. If you have unpacked stuff, they will not move them or they will charge you extra for packing services.

Let them do their job:

Finally, if you’ve hired a good moving company, you know that they’re very good at what they do. So, ensure that you don’t interrupt and interfere in their job, so that they can do that what they’re best at.

Best Cheap Movers Orange County

HOW TO AVOID MOVING COMPANY SCAMS?

Moving can be a hectic aspect and sometimes it can get very stressful too. Usually, when you’re planning to move to a different city or different state, everything needs to be properly planned and then executed. If you’ve got a moderate to high amount of stuff that you should be moving along with you, things can get pretty hectic if you’re trying to move on your own. One of the best decisions that you can make while trying to move is to hire a moving company that does the job for you. But not all moving companies are good and there are some scammers out there. Continue reading to find out the tips that you can follow if you’re looking to avoid moving company scams:

moving scam
  • Too Good to be True:

    If the moving company package sounds to be too good to be true, be very cautious. Moving company scams usually lure people by offering their services at price quotes that are not realistic. Unfortunately, some people fall for these moving scams thinking that they’re being offered a great deal.

  •  
  • No reviews:

    If you can’t find any type of reviews or information about the moving company you’re considering, better to think twice and stay away. Usually these moving companies are designed to scam people, which is why they don’t publish any type of information on internet. Furthermore they use different names to avoid any reviews.

  •  
  • Research & Visit:

    Finally, if you want to avoid getting scammed and possibly hire a good moving company, you should do your due diligence and research. If possible, it’s better to visit the moving company and examine their office to see if they’re legitimate or not. If they have got some good reviews, it’s much better.

  •  
  • The requested deposit

    Reputable moving companies will NOT request cash or any big amount of deposit. You generally pay after the job is done. If you pay up front, you don’t have control over your belongings. When you pay requested small amount of deposit, use a credit card that will fight in case of fraud.

  • Hidden Fees or other extra charges: 

  • You live in not first floor and your apartment does not have an elevator? Have a narrow street that won’t fit a moving truck? So, you’ll be charged extra for any inconvenience. Be sure to get all inclusive prices and no hidden fees or extra charges when you are to hire movers.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TIP MOVERS?

Cheap Moving Company

Best Cheap Movers Orange County

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TIP MOVERS?

One of the most frequently asked questions: “How Much Should I Tip Movers?”

You must be excited about your upcoming move to a whole new place. Well, moving is one thing that you should be stressing about, before enjoying your new life at a new place. While, most of the people prefer to hire a moving company to do the difficult job. Moving involves a lot of heavy lifting, packing, loading, and many more complicated things. Movers strive very hard to give you a great moving experience. It’s only fair thing to do by tipping them, although it’s not mandatory. Have a look at some of the things that you should educate yourself about tipping your movers:

Tipping and not tipping: Well, if you’re looking forward to tipping your movers, you should only do that if they behave accordingly and appropriately.

how much should I tip movers

You should definitely consider the way they work and how good they are at their work.

 – Tip your movers if they’re punctual and arrive on time.

 – Tip them if they’ve done a great job by finishing the move on time or just before it.

 – Tip your movers if they have taken extra stress by any means.

 – You can tip your movers if they have assisted you in packing.

If they’ve damaged any of your items, not punctual, or did any other negative things, you may not have to tip them.

How much you should tip your movers?

Well, the amount of generosity depends on the person, but you can always go with 10-15% of your moving cost. If you’re not comfortable with involving monetary terms in tipping your movers, you can simply offer them some food to boost their energy and a few soft drinks to cool them off while doing the hard work. But it’s recommended to tip your movers at least $20 per mover.

Proper etiquette is to tip each helper individually, not to the foreman. This shows that you recognize and appreciate their individual efforts.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN MOVERS PACK FOR YOU

Best Cheap Movers Orange County

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN MOVERS PACK FOR YOU

If you have finalized the best cheap movers in Orange County to move your belongings in a safe and professional manner, then you can rest easy knowing that the most complicated and time-consuming part of moving is being taken care of by experts. 

However, knowledge about the packing process can come in handy because you can be mentally prepared for the packing day and be of help to the professionals.

Here’s what you can expect when packers from the budget moving company selected by you come to your place:

1. When Your Movers Arrive

After arriving at your location, the packers will first make a walk-through of your home with you to know exactly which items need to be packed. They will also ask you about your concerns regarding some items so that they can pack it with extra care. Once they get an idea of the amount of work needed to be done, they will bring the appropriate packing material inside and start packing.

2. When They Start Packing

The packers will split into several groups to deal with the packing requirements in different rooms to increase efficiency and save time. They will mark the box with the name of the room from which the items came out and also state whether the box contains breakable items or not. Generally, packers are very careful so you need not worry about damages. Another point to keep in mind is that they will pack your home just as they find it without differentiating between trash and useful items. You have to be prepared beforehand and either discard useless stuff or label it as ‘do not pack’ to avoid extra packing.

3. Filling Of Boxes

Sometimes it can so happen that the carton containing items from one room may still have space left. The packers will then put in articles from another room to fill the carton to capacity and avoid damage to the items inside. For your convenience, the boxes will have labels of both the rooms.

4. End Of Packing

After the packers complete their work, you have to check all the rooms, drawers and cupboards to ensure that everything is packed. One of the essential moving tips is to keep a list of inventory ready to facilitate the checking process. It is you who will take the call whether packing is over or not. Once the packers leave, any unpacked item will be your responsibility.

Remember to opt for the best cheap movers Orange County to make your packing experience stress-free and efficient!

What in the heck is Double Drive Time anyway?

Cheap Moving Company

Best Cheap Movers Orange County

WHAT IS DOUBLE DRIVE TIME?

Our #1 most frequently asked question is: “What in the heck is Double Drive Time anyway?”

Thank you, first of all, for asking! Double Drive Time can sound like a very daunting and scary phrase to hear when talking about billable costs — but it doesn’t have to be! Let me give you a little background on the matter first. In California, all moving companies (big or small,) are required to hold a permit with the state of California called a Household Goods Mover Permit. California Household Goods Movers are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission, the same governmental branch that regulates a number of industries. 

 

 

“…the time used shall be the total of loading, unloading and double the driving time from point of origin to point of destination.”

-California Public Utilities Commission

Double Drive Time explained

In order to obtain said permit, companies must provide multiple sources of documentation that confirm financial and legal responsibility. Additionally, companies must pass a rigorous test administered by the Commission. This test requires that companies display a higher-that average knowledge of industry rate caps in and consumer law.

One such law is Double Drive Time. Not only are all companies supposed to charge this fee, we are actually REQUIRED to charge this fee for all hourly moves. In fact, if the Commission finds that a moving company is not charging this fee, companies can be fined…or worse!

In Layman’s Terms, say it takes us 15 minutes to drive from your current address in Silverlake, California to your new home in Glendale, California; Therefore, your Double Drive Time will be 30 minutes. This is to account for the time it would take for your movers to drive back to your point of origin. This protects you as a Consumer because this cost should be figured in your moving “Not to exceed” price that you sign off on your contract before your move. This provides fair compensation for your movers and gas costs. This also gives the opportunity for total transparency between your moving company and yourself, which is always key in any relationship.

What Our Customers Say

Really best movers. A+ moving experience at a reasonable rate on short notice. Three well dressed and friendly welcoming movers quickly, and safely moved all of my stuff to my new third floor home. Excellent service, will certainly use again and suggest to friends.

Best Cheap Movers is awesome! They sent a team of young guys who were eager and efficient from start to finish. Very friendly to talk with. Guys moved my items very quickly and were careful to not damage anything. One of my bookshelves was a little rickety and came apart during transport and they were upfront. Foreman informed me before wrapping it. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you.
