Moving in Palo Alto? Here’s What You Need to Know

Moving day is rarely a breeze, but there are steps that you can take to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible. When you’re working with a professional moving company, you know that your items will be safely and securely transported from your current location to their final destination. What about everything that comes before your move? See how color coordinating your move will help make things easier for you — and your movers!

Create an (Easy!) System of Organization

It’s all-too-easy to add complexity when you’re creating a system of organizing your move. From a complicated spreadsheet to color coding that may not make sense to anyone but you, the KISS (Keep it simple, silly!) principle should be in full effect during a move. Experts recommend that you get tape and permanent markers in coordinating colors and give each room a color. The kitchen may be orange, while the master bedroom is pink, for instance.

Be Consistent

The most important rule with organizing for your move is to stay consistent. If you start using one color for a particular room, stick with it! Otherwise, your movers may become confused and accidentally put items in the wrong place. This can cause you confusion as you’re unpacking and a lot of additional time and energy to move items around.

Frequently Asked Questions when Moving.

Q. Can you move heavy, valuable or oversized items, such as pianos or installed artwork?

A. Yes! We have the right tools and over 40 years of expertise to draw upon when planning and executing your move. We are also licensed and insured so your precious items are in safe hands.

Q. How can I find the best Palo Alto moving company?

A. Finding the right professionals helps ensure your move is smooth and stress-free. Looking for a moving company that offers free upfront video estimates, is well-rated online and is willing to stand behind their estimates without adding charges the day of your move.

Q. Is there a certain time of the year that’s best for a move?

A. With moving, it’s always best to find a relatively unpopular time for your move. For instance, instead of moving on a Saturday, consider a Wednesday instead! You will probably want to avoid the months when colleges and universities are either beginning or ending classes for the year, too.
