The 6 Most Stressful Things About Moving

I asked some of the sales staff here at Buehler Moving on what they feel are some of the most stressful things that they believe that their customers are struggling with the most when they move. This was the answers that I received from them:

Price
Time
Kids and School
Pets
Quality
The Unknown

Now I am going to hit on each and every one of these things and then provide a simple solution to all of these key things that you can find to be stressful when you are moving.

First off, it’s always about price. Can I afford to move? Can I afford a moving company? What is it going to cost me? Am I being scammed by my moving company? All of these are questions that revolve around price and can really stress you out. It’s a lot to think about and stress over and we totally understand!

When it comes to price, always be sure to get a minimum of 3 moving estimates from 3 reputable moving companies. Then compare them, don’t just look at the estimate final amount. Examine all of the charges closely.

Perhaps one moving company included mattress bags for your beds and the other didn’t. Perhaps one moving company thinks that you have 6,000 pounds and the other company thinks that you have 4,000 pounds. Perhaps one moving company included valuation on your move and another company didn’t. Valuation is EXTREMELY important and I explain it a little more in depth in my post called “Moving Damage – What Moving Companies Legally Have To Offer You Before You Move.” All of these little things change the price of your move.

Explore your estimates and if one company isn’t offering you all of the services that another company is offering you, then of course there will be a difference in price on the final amount.

Remember, it’s fair to say that if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. You should never go with a really low ball quote because you do not want them charging you additional money upon delivery. Check out what the BBB has to say about moving.

Ask questions and don’t be afraid to ask your moving companies to revise their quote based on the services they may not have originally included in their price.

Also, always make sure that you get a fixed price bid. This protects you from the moving company trying to charge you additional money above and beyond the quoted amount.

Now moving on to the next topic – One of the most valuable things that you have in the world is your time. Managing your time is already enough work and there really never is enough time as it is. One of the great resources that we offer to help save you valuable time is your personal online move planner. You can see a video of how it works by clicking on the link.

You can look at your moving documents, moving checklists, packing tips and even special offers from other companies and discounts. You can also check out the schools, find a realtor and you can get cash back by using the referral program. It’s a really great way to have everything with regard to your move all in one easy convenient location that actually helps save you time.

This move planner also helps give you information about moving with kids or moving with pets, or you can check out my recent article about Moving With Pets.

You can also take a look at the article “10 Tips On How To Make Your Move Smoother

How do you know that you are choosing a quality Moving Company? Well, ask them the right questions! If you ask the right questions before you move, you will eventually find out that you are more comfortable with a certain one. What questions should you ask? Check out another recent article called “Questions that you should ask your moving company before you move

We understand that this is a lot of information to take in, but we also assure you that these various resources will dramatically reduce the stress of price, time, kids, school, pets and the unknown. 

For additional information, here is another great article about Common Mistakes When Choosing A Moving Company.

We hope that this helps you in making an informed and educated decision before you choose a moving company to handle your move.

That’s for reading!

Moving With Cats & Dogs??? Your Pet Relocation Resource All In One Place!

This is Denali, She is my very best friend. When I moved, I really could have used some help with relocating her too. That's why I made this guide on moving with pets. I figured that I am not the only person out there that wants my pet to be handled with the utmost care.


Moving with cats and dogs can sometimes stress you out. We all know that it’s already hard enough to move as it is. Your animals can be your best friend, but how do you transport them across the country without having to drive all that way?

We have a few really good resources to help you out with that. They can go by air transport or vehicle whichever you prefer)

Check out Animal Land, they will assign you a personal moving counselor who will manage all of the aspects of your pets move with care.

They will move dogs or cats and even other animals and they are pretty affordable as well. They arrange all of the flight details, shots if you are going to another country, etc…

There really isn’t a need to be stressed out if you are moving with pets. Don’t drive across the country when you have other options that are available.

Another good resource is Animal Air. They are a really good pet relocation company for pets and they really make it easy. They also go international and take care of all the details for the pickup and transport of your pets. They even offer veterinary services, microchip identification, blood sampling if you are going overseas, etc…

Another resource for you is Capital Pet Movers. They are a travel agent for your pet and they offer ground transportation, flight arrangements, kenneling and the whole nine yards.

These are just some of the options for moving with your pets and some really good recommended resources. If they don’t work out, then try some of the links below. I am sure that you will find a company that can work within your budget and provide you with excellent service and reduce your stress level.

And of course, if you are looking for a reputable Moving Company, check us out! :-)

Take care and happy Thursday!

Moving Damage - What Moving Companies Legally Have To Offer You Before You Move


Is your Moving Company confusing you on how they handle damages to your move? Today, we would like to talk about how important that it is to understand your valuation coverage options and what they really mean to you, the consumer.
None of us like to talk about damage, but let’s get real. It happens. Not every move is perfect and there are some things that can possibly get broken in ANY move and with ANY Moving Company.

Although every consumer wants perfection (of course) - understanding your options up front will actually help you to make the right decision on damages before your move even begins.
What is valuation anyway?

Good question. Let’s think about how you pay for car insurance. You choose a plan, it may or may not have a deductible and you pay monthly for that plan in case of an accident. If there is an accident, you pay your deductible, file a claim, get a repair person to look at your vehicle (or your insurance company assigns one), submit the estimate to the insurance company and they send you a check or have your car repaired, etc…
Well, valuation is similar to car insurance, only its called valuation.

The reason Moving Companies use this term is simply because we are not providing you with insurance. We are not charging you monthly to insure your items.
Valuation is the process of estimating what something is worth in value. Because the Moving Companies did not purchase your items and do not know the value of your items, we have to allow the consumer (you) to tell us how much that you think that your items are worth. This is what we call “Declared Value”

Now that we understand what valuation means, what is your Moving Company legally entitled to offer you?
Well, legally Moving Companies are required to offer you a minimum of $.60 cents per pound per article or the actual value of the article (whichever is less) at no cost to you. This is the basic coverage (Legal Liability) and it’s not much.
Basically, if you have a desk that weighs 200 pounds that gets damaged in the move, then your Moving Company will issue you a check for $120.00 or have the item repaired (whichever is less)
They have too. It's the law.
However, your Moving Company also (LEGALLY) has to offer you another option. If your moving company is not talking to you about your valuation options, then they may not be a legitimate company to be working with.
What are your other options?

Your Moving Company should also offer you full valuation. This option allows you to declare the total value of all your items prior to your move. Full value means the total replacement value of your goods. You cannot elect this option after your move is completed (Only before) and there is a cost associated with this option (just like paying for insurance)
Full valuation means that the Moving Company will have the option of repairing any damaged items or replacing  the items at an equal value to the actual retail value of the item (whichever is less) and they have the option to salvage the broken or damaged item in replacement of the new item.

The cost for full valuation depends on the amount that you declare on the total value of your goods. Always check with your Moving Company for pricing on full valuation before your move. Don’t forget to ask about the deductible options!
Protect yourself and your belongings before you choose your moving company. We hope this helps to clarify what your moving company is legally responsible to offer you before you move.

If you have further questions, contact us and we will be glad to answer them!

Have a protected move!
