Make Your Move Easier by Obtaining a Free Quote

As soon as you finalize your new place and start planning for the move, the clock perhaps starts ticking faster. A time finally comes when only a few days are left for the move. There are a lot of questions that keep coming to your mind and one of the most important among these questions is the amount that the move will cost. Naturally you try to find out the most appropriate answer, more so when you ponder over whether to move on your own or call the expert Dallas movers.

The exact expenses of your relocation are very hard to calculate in advance since a number of factors that are constantly changing come into play. These have a great impact on the relocation bill, both during the preparations, and even on the moving day. There can be a number of situations leading to alterations in previously decided conditions- to complete a particular job, an additional service might be required or you might find a service that the movers have decided to provide suddenly becoming useless. That is the main reason why you need an estimate which is in fact an advance calculation of the probable moving costs.

Now, the point is what are the most effective ways to obtain moving quotes free of cost? Here are two major routes to get free moving estimates, if you are planning a move to a different area of the country.

Fill out a moving estimate free of cost


This is in fact the most convenient and quickest means to receive a free moving quote. You are just required to fill out a form with all the details, a process that will take only a couple of minutes. The details that are usually needed include the ZIP code of the current city or town you are residing in, the state or the city you are moving to, the date when you are planning to move, whether you want any vehicle to be shipped, and your property size. At the end you have to provide your contact details, and that’s all. You would definitely agree that it is very easy and quick.

Once the moving quote is filled out, you may expect insured, licensed and reliable Dallas movers to get in touch with you expressing their eagerness to discuss further about the moving details. This is the point of time when it becomes your responsibility to ask for an in-house survey by one of their representatives and a subsequent estimate. Getting the correct estimate will become easier once on-site inspection is done and the movers get a clear idea of the items to be moved. Show every item to the representative and ask for a proper estimate.

Ask for a free quote from a particular mover


You may also search for an appropriate moving company on your own. This method is somewhat more time consuming since you need to go for some online research, browsing through ratings and testimonials, as well as checking the licensing details of the concerned movers. When you have shortlisted some movers, get in touch with them for free estimates. Choose the one that best suits what you need.

The Art of Packing Hangers for a Successful Move

The Art of Packing Hangers for a Successful Move

Everybody will agree that it is a difficult job to move house. When the best and the most experienced Dallas movers are there to help you out, things becomes easier. However, with some moving tips at hand, you can make the process all the more seamless and in fact help the movers to help you better.

Hangers might seem insignificant things, but some people do get into a big mess trying to pack them properly. Here is a helpful guideline for packing hangers properly for your move.

Before you pack

Improper packing may lead to damaged or broken hangers, scratched surfaces in wardrobes, ruined or torn clothes as well as more expenses with regards to storage space. So, the very first thing for you to decide is whether you need to carry those hangers with you or you can simply leave them back. In case you decide not to take your hangers to your new home, it won’t be a great loss, since hangers are usually made of plastic or wood and are inexpensive.

If you do not want to part with your designer or high quality hangers, there is nothing wrong. However, choose the ones that have no wear and tear signs. You can always buy new fashionable ones.

Even if you know the art of packing hangers or have the best Dallas movers beside you, you might often find that packing these items is not worth the time or effort. You can give it away to neighbors or friends who would love to have them or even donate to dry cleaners. They would readily use wire hangers.

The process of packing

It is best to pack clothes hangers in wardrobe boxes, which are special cardboard cartons, where you can place hangers intact along with the clothes. Wardrobe boxes are great for such kind of transportation because they are tailored for carrying clothes. This makes room for fast packing and also offers effective protection.

Alternatively, you can also stack and wrap hangers. Separate the hangers that you have decided to carry on the basis of material and size. Wooden and plastic hangers should be packed separately from wire hangers. Stack them in bundles (around 10) and tie with rubber bands, wire twists or cable ties. Once you are done with stacking and wrapping, cover everything with an old bed sheet.

Avoid the wrong ways

While preparing for a move, many feel like simply leaving the hangers in the clothing wardrobe. But, if you do this, the hangers will have enough movement space inside the wardrobe, and hence there are high chances that the bottom of the wardrobe will get scratched. A particular side might also get damaged.

Also, refrain from throwing your hangers just like that in a cardboard box, however, convenient and fast it might seem to be. Clothes hangers have the tendency to get intertwined with each other and in the process they often break or become out of shape. Moreover, you will also waste a whole storage place in this way.
