Anything the movers would need tools to disassemble, needs to be taken care of prior to the mover's arrival.
For example mirror off dressers, headboards unbolted from the frame of the bed, washer & dryer
disconnected, etc.. If you would like Best Move in Texas, Inc. to perform these moving services, we will at a minimal charge.
You may leave clothing items in dressers etc. Please remove all paper, breakables and fragile items
and pack them in boxes, the movers will not be responsible if they are not removed.
Desk drawers must be completely empty. Legal, letter, and lateral filing cabinets must be empty. This helps not only the movers but you as well.
Please have all boxes sealed with tape on both the top and the bottom. Most movers in Dallas will not move them if this step is not done, check with your moving company for special instructions if you have any questions on how they want the boxes prepared.
Make sure to stand plates, glasses, stemware, etc.. on their ends when packing. Movers do what they can to be gentle with your fragile items, but this will give you that extra protection, to help you avoid having to make a claim against your moving company.
If you need packing material such as boxes, tape, paper, etc.. We recommend Boxes4U. Some movers in Dallas sell boxes but most times they are marked up in price.

Moving in Dallas, whether you are doing it on your own or you've opted to hire a professional moving company is a chore, no matter which way you look at it. Not only is it time-consuming, it can have negative physical and mental aspects, such as headaches, stress and backaches to name a few. Not to mention if you have to file a claim against your moving company for damages the movers may have caused.

However, we hope to help you "lighten the load", so to speak, by providing you with some helpful moving tips that will go a long way to help you alleviate some of the common moving ailments.
By using a bit of common sense and a few of our helpful tips, you can make your move a little bit easier. There are few movers in Dallas that will help you in this way and that is where reviews can help.

When You Are Going To Move Matters!
While you may be forced to move because of certain circumstances, such as marriage, "growing up", buying a new house, or getting a new job, moving in a fair-climate is recommended.
Some areas of the country are more or less pleasant year-round, but other areas are plagued with seasonal rain, extreme heat or snow and ice, which can make the moving process either uncomfortable or even dangerous.
If you have a choice in the matter, it's better to move in the spring or autumn months so that you can hopefully avoid hot summer days and the dangers of moving when travel is more dangerous due to road conditions. Work with your moving company to find a time that will work the best.

Movers Can Make The Difference
Remember when Hiring movers in Dallas, or anywhere for that matter, Reviews are a good judge on what to expect. Don't rely on one review site as some moving companies have SEO companies that make up moving reviews for them. Try the BBB also, even though only about 1-10% of people actually go through the BBB to complain about movers, their site can be very helpful in making your decision. These helpful hints will help you to find movers or a moving company that will fit your moving needs.

Packing -The Biggest Chore!
Packing is a necessity in moving that you must endure unless you plan on replacing nearly everything you own at your new destination. In all honesty, packing and unpacking is probably the hardest part of the move and if you're not hiring a moving company to do the packing for you, soliciting the help of family and friends for either process can help you out exponentially. Make sure to use enough paper and wrap all breakables modestly. Don't over load your boxes, use smaller boxes for the heavier items, i.e. books and heavier dishes.

Loading And Unloading
Loading and unloading the moving truck or van if you've hired a full-service moving company, your tasks and responsibilities are more organizational than physical. Movers in Dallas have a hard time with traffic and parking on moving day, so this task will help and may save you time and money. However, for those who are taking on the responsibility of using a one-way truck rental or who are borrowing vehicles to make the move, loading and unloading the moving vehicle(s) can be a weeks' worth of working out in itself, and some of us just aren't used to that type of activity. You can save yourself a backache by using a little bit of common sense: Park the moving vehicle as close as is comfortably possible to your front door.
Have somebody in the back of the moving vehicle to arrange boxes (when loading) and hand out boxes (when unloading) to save wear and tear on your body from continually climbing in and out of the truck or van. If you have a lot of help, creating a "chain" and passing boxes and lighter items on to another will make both loading and unloading the truck much easier.
Using your kids to help Truth be told, if you have a family with children that you are looking to transport, it exponentially increases the amount of things that you have to take with you and it can be a real pain if your kids happen to be at "that age" of unruliness or rowdiness. However, if your kids are old enough and strong enough, they can certainly help carry lighter boxes and at the very least, if they're responsible, you can have them help you watch any younger children that are around.

Using Friends And Family
Friends and family are around for encouragement, fellowship and support when you're moving you're going to need all of the "support" you can get. By getting help from your close-knit supporters, especially those of the "muscle-bound" variety with strong backs, you will be able to make the process of moving much more bearable, for the cost of a few pizzas and a cold beverage or two you may even be able to make the moving process almost enjoyable. A little bit of food, chit-chat and unpacking boxes, shouldn't be too bad, right?

Making The Drive To Your New Destination
Some people enjoy driving and don't have a problem with driving a big-rig sized vehicle while it would be a terrifying event for others. First of all, if you're unsure whether you would have a problem driving a moving van either across town or across the country, you should find somebody who is confident that they could handle it. If you can't find anybody to do so, it may be in your best interest to hire a moving company, a few bucks out of pocket is better than getting into an accident or adding stress to an already stress-producing event.
Now, if you feel up to the challenge, you should be sure that you prepare yourself for the drive, especially if it's several hundred or several thousand miles away.

All items that are flammable or explosive must be transported by the customer and cannot be placed in the moving van. Some examples are: aerosol cans, propane tanks, thinners, gasoline, etc..

Gasoline engines must be emptied (i.e. lawn movers).

Garden Hoses:
Garden hoses should be drained and the ends connected together. Place hose in empty trash container to avoid leakage.

Chest of drawers and dressers can be moved with the drawers full. Any items that could spill, break or move around should be removed. Some examples are: perfume, cologne, jewelry, coins, pens, pencils, paper clips, glass items.

Live Plants:
Live plants are considered to be perishable items. We can move them, but cannot take responsibility for their condition at destination.. Outdoor items made of concrete, cement, or plaster can be moved but we cannot take responsibility for these items. Changes in weather causes external and internal cracks that can cause breaks and/or crumbling.

Guns and/or ammunition cannot be transported.

Refrigerators and freezers should be emptied prior to the time of the move.

Computers and Electronics:
Computers and electronic equipment should be disconnected and be ready to move prior to loading. Small electronic components should be boxed.
