Get the Best Moving Services with iMoving

 

Finding a reliable and affordable mover is a key part of the moving process. It has become so easy for movers to create a website, advertise moving services and legitimize their business. But many of these movers offer a sub-par, overpriced service riddled with issues. It is why iMoving offers individuals, couples and families a real alternative.

 

The iMoving referral service is the best way to connect with the most reputable local and long-distance movers in your area. We also help you receive other services related to relocation, such as storage, car transport and more.

 

Offering a quality moving service entails a lot more than buying a few trucks and hiring people who can lift heavy objects. Reputable movers are properly licensed and insured. Movers within the iMoving network have at least two years of experience and very positive feedback from previous customers.

The moving and storage industry in the United States is one of the oldest and most complex. There are so many different companies within the industry, ranging from multi-million dollar corporations to a few people operating a moving service out of their home.

 

Whether you are moving locally, a state away or across the country, it is crucial to find a reputable moving service provider that offers the services you need. But most people do not have extensive experience about how to identify the best movers, and you may not want to spend days researching different companies, their reputations and the services they offer.

 

iMoving makes everything a lot simpler. Our referral service takes care of the legwork. We vet the most reliable providers of moving, storage and auto transport services, allowing you to select the provider offering the best price on the services that you need.

 

Services

  • Local Moving Services

    The moving company you pick to handle your upcoming move will depend heavily on whether you are moving locally or long distance. While some movers are equipped to handle both types of moves, many companies only offer local moving services. They are unable to handle a move over a certain distance. Movers within the iMoving network will specify whether they offer local and/or long-distance moving services.

  • Long Distance Moving

    If you are moving across the United States, or simply from one state to another, you will need to hire a long-distance moving company to handle the move. By understanding the nature of the long-distance moving process, you can get a sense of the logistics and cost associated with such a move. The iMoving referral service can help you find a reputable long-distance mover in your area.

  • Truck Rental

    Planning for a move takes time and effort – and you want to be sure that you’re doing whatever is necessary in order to save time and money on it. A truck rental is just one of many things that you may be considering as a part of your move – but what does it entail and how much does it cost? Let’s take a look.

  • Packing and Unpacking

    Packing and unpacking are two of the biggest things that you need to work out as you’re looking at your move and what it is that you need to do during it. There’s a lot to be taken care of and, as you explore what it is that you need to work out, you may find it easier and more time-efficient to go ahead and hire movers that can take care of your packing and unpacking services easily.

  • Storage Services

    Renting a storage unit for the first time? Hoping to store your possessions temporarily until you finalize living arrangements in a new city? We can help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

     

    Storage units are so helpful when you are trying to downsize your living situation, reduce clutter, move to another city or store seasonal supplies. iMoving can connect you with companies that offer storage solutions.

  • Special Handling

    Everyone who is preparing for a move has concerns about the large and fragile items that are going to be packed in the moving van or truck. How can you be sure that these items are going to arrive in the way that you want them to? Are there options that make it easier for you to have peace of mind?

     

    Many of the companies at iMoving offer what are known as special handling services. What are these, why do they matter, and how can you be sure that you’re doing what is necessary in order to get things done in a way that you’re happy with?

  • Commercial Moving

    It is not every day that you need to move your business. Whether you are moving into a bigger office, shifting to a nearby city or moving temporarily, there is a lot that must get done to ensure a smooth transition.


    Hiring a reliable commercial moving company can make all the difference. These companies have the experience, tools and skills necessary to ensure your office move is handled with precision and care. And iMoving can help put you in touch with them.

  • Moving Labor

    Not every type of residential move requires a full moving service. Some individuals, couples or families may not even want to pay professional moving companies for the use of their moving trucks. A small or local move may only require the assistance of moving labor. And iMoving can help you connect with the most reliable moving labor in your area.

  • Auto Transport

    Depending on the distance involved in your upcoming move, driving your car to your new home may not be the best idea. Long-distance or cross-country moves put a lot of wear and tear on a car, not to mention the time and effort of driving the distance yourself. And, the situation could be complicated by the need to move multiple vehicles. iMoving can help you connect with a reputable long-distance moving company that offers auto transport services.

  • Assembly and Disassembly

    One of the most difficult parts of your move is trying to sort out what it is that you need in order to get your large items where you need them to go. How can you be sure that you’re able to get them moved? Are you going to keep them together or are you going to take them apart before the move?

     

    There are many large items that you may want to disassemble as a part of your moving process. But, what needs to be taken apart? Should you do it yourself or is it better for you to get your movers to do it for you? Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions that get asked in regards to disassembly and assembly of your large items during the move.

  • Disposal Services

    During the move out process, you will find that you have a lot of stuff that you just don’t want to take with you. Whether it’s broken, unusable, torn, or just in your way, you will find that there are likely piles of junk that you won’t be sure how to deal with in a proper fashion. Will you need to take multiple trips to your local dump or recycling center to make it happen?

     

    If you’re looking at the options that you have available for dealing with your junk, you may be looking at your local waste removal service or trash pickup. But, many times they won’t take items in bulk at all. What are you supposed to do at that point? That’s where disposal services can give you a hand. Let’s take a look at disposal services and what they can do to help you with everything that you need to

  • Piano Services

    Those of us who appreciate music may have been brought up to play an instrument from a young age. While instruments like trumpets and guitars are easy to take to a new home, you have a bit more planning involved when you’re trying to deal with a large instrument like a piano.

     

    Specialized piano moving services are an important thing that you’re going to want to consider when looking at getting prepared for your move, and there are a few details that you’ll definitely need to work out. Let’s take a look at a few of the details involved here.

  • Wood Crate – Art & Antique

    You are what we would call a collector. You own valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces of fine art or antique furniture that will add a truly unique look to your new home.  

     

    During a move, items like this can become very stressful for you. Their delicate nature and age make them more vulnerable to serious damage and the memories, feelings and sentiment attached simply make them irreplaceable. Their value typically is priceless, which is why iMoving only works with high-quality movers who care about your valuables as if they were their own.

     

    For delicate or high value items, wrapping them in bubble wrap, tissue paper or old clothes and fabric may not be enough. Antiques and artwork deserve special consideration when moving.

    Extreme excitement and anxiety are probably your best friends right now. This is a big life change and starting off on the right foot with a decent moving experience would go a long way in making your move easier.

This kind of excitement is not like the regular one, and it comes with a lot of thought for the future. Moving into your new home can be an absolutely life changing experience. You are finally in a place of your own, with your own space, less noise from others, and more time for you to concentrate on other things. But before all these things can come to be, you must make sure you have done the essentials.

There are so many reason why you would want to live in a place of your own.it could be that you just got your promotion and have enough to own a house now. It could also be that you have just recently married, and want all the tie with your spouse, and some peace and quiet. Whatever the case might be, it’s always an excellent thing to finally have a place you can call your own. Remember, there is a difference between living in a rented apartment and living in a home.

 

We have gathered some useful tips to help you transition quickly into owning your first house

 

1. Plan Your Budget

 

You need to understand that you will have to set yourself right. If you are considering hiring a moving company, you need to know you will also spend more. So as much as you are trying to get the right amount of money to buy that house, you also need to factor in the amount you will spend on moving. It’s not a problem if you plan on moving later, you can think about how much you need to save up to buy the house, and then you can think of the amount to pay for moving later.

 

Also, bear in mind the extra costs you might be having to pay to the local movers depending on where you live. If you move to a place prone to natural disasters, you will need to get insurance, just in case. That needs to be added to your budget. Other costs could include, gas, electricity, water, and other essential things. You also need to bear in mind homeowners' insurance, this is different from the natural disaster insurance. There are also taxes to worry about and all those things you tend to overlook. Bringing these things to mind will help you plan properly, and reduce every unnecessary spending.

 

2. Make Sure You Inspect The House

 

This is the first most important thing you need to do after settling your budget. Before closing any deal on the house you want to make your home, you need to be sure of what you are paying for. If you bought the house over the internet, you will need to go in person to see if the house is as described. The inspection helps you to know what and what is really wrong with the home. While you go to inspect, do not just be wowed by the structure of the house. You also need to pay attention to the parts of the home. Check out all the rooms and make sure everything is in order. This is very important.

 

While inspecting, you also want to make sure you note down all the things you feel needs to be repaired. If you find any, then you need to contact the seller right before the deal closes. If you can notice, and call the attention of the seller to the faults and errors, you can have them fix it right before the closing. That way you save yourself a whole lot on repairs. If not, you will have some extra costs to handle due to negligence. As much as we like to be in a home that is very beautiful, you also want to make sure there are no leaky faucets or attics, no leaky roof, or any other part. Inspection can also make you change your mind on whether or not you still want the house.

 

3. Get To Know Your Home

 

This next tip is very important for those who are going to be moving to a place they want to call their home with their families. Now, you know how large your family is, and you know just want what you want, that is why you have selected the kind of house you have selected. The next thing you want to make sure you do is to make sure you also get to know every portion of your home. Right before you move, you need to be sure where you are moving into can take the amount of stuffs you will be bringing in.

 

During this time, you have to measure your home, and the rooms, the first step in transitioning to a new place is to love it. So if you have a lump of items you no longer use at your former place, you should seriously consider giving them out, or throwing them away. This way you will be able to fit things that your new home requires. Make sure you have the accurate measurement of your new home. Once this is done, you can know what type of doors to buy for your new home, what wardrobe sizes, and what other essential furniture can go into your new place.

 

4. Get Familiar With Your New Neighborhood

 

Before you get a formal welcome from your neighbors, you need to know your neighborhood more. This way you will be able to ask your neighbors concise questions and find help easily when you move in. you should take a walk around or just get to drive around to become familiar with the places around your neighborhood. This builds more confidence when you move in. when you leave your house the next day after you move, you know exactly where you are going. Your questions to your neighbors will sound more like “Do you know anywhere else I can get milk apart from that grocery store downtown.”

 

You can also go around and find the school in the neighborhood. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have children. Even if you might see it as less important, you can never tell how important it will be in a couple of years. You can also not tell what you will find along the way. Be careful not to look suspicious or loiter around, if you seem lost at some point. You can ask for directions from passersby and get back on track.

 

5. Change All The Locks In Your New Home

 

You must have heard of stories of people breaking into the homes of others, without actually breaking in. There are several stories like that and you should avoid it. The best thing for you to do is to make sure you collect all the keys from the previous person who lived in the house, or you can also ask your seller to provide you with the keys to all the rooms, including the spare keys. Do not be so carried away by the fact that you have gotten a new home that you leave out this very important step.

 

Collecting the keys is never enough, you also need to make sure you change all the lock. This way you are sure of your own privacy, and that you are not sharing your home with some stranger. Remember the tip that speaks about knowing your home? During that process, you should also be able to spot areas in your home that might need more light, or motion sensors. All these things put in place will increase your safety. So if anything happens, you know you don’t have to blame the seller, you can call the police right away when you suspect any disturbing occurrence.

 

6. Be On The Lookout For Pests

 

When the home is empty, it gives you a better shot at knowing whether or not pests are in the home. Before moving in, it is essential you check out the place to see if there are bugs and pests you need to get rid of. You know the types of pests you hate so much, and you don’t want them crawling on your head on your first day. You should never be deceived by how well a house looks. If it’s an old house or has been there for a while, you should suspect the presence of pests in that home. And you can never tell their numbers.

 

So before or upon moving, you need to get a lot of traps and sprays if you notice any. We strongly recommend trying to find bugs before you move a single box into your home. It is always easier to deal with all the pests before you have a lot of load in your house. Once you notice any crawling or flying insect in your home, you should call the pest control to help you deal with the situation. It’s okay if you don’t find anything immediately, you can still drive them out after you notice them.

 

7. Audit Your Electricity And Power Up The Electricity In Your Home

 

Electricity is one thing you will definitely need in your home. You need to make sure you have the best of it. In a bid to save more on the cost of electricity bills upon moving to your new home, you will need to audit your electricity to determine what type it is. Get an engineer to help you check the house and know what your house runs on. This way you’ll have a good report on things to change, and what to do to make your house more energy sufficient, and you save some more on electricity.

 

Another job the engineer will help you with is to check if everything is functioning properly. He/she will help you check the wiring of the home and help you determine what is wrong or what need replacement in the home. This is very vital for you especially if you are buying an old home. Even if you buy a new home, you still need to check if everything is working fine. It might come as a big disappointment to you when you discover certain things are not being powered in your home.

 

8. Get Other Necessary Cleaning And Fumigation Done

 

Apart from clearing the places from a lot of bugs, you should also try to make sure you are breathing good air. There is an airborne disease, and you cannot see them. Certain germs and reactions to allergies might come up if you do not clean up your home. The next thing after getting bugs out should be to call a specialist to help you fumigate your home. Even without fumigating, a change of environment can cause you to fall sick sometimes so, it is important you clean the air to make things better.

 

After all the necessary things have been done, you should also try as much as possible to get your house cleaned. The day you choose to clean your new home, you should take your cleaning supplies. Even if you have cleaned the home before, the new adjustments and cleanings would definitely make a few dirt lie around once more. You can either go alone or take your friends and family to the place to help you. This way they can know your new home and help you clean at the same time.
