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.

  • International 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. Making sure it goes right feels like the set up for whether you will start your life in that new country off right.

     

    iMoving knows how difficult an international move can be and partners with some of the best movers in the US and abroad to help create seamless moving experiences for brave travelers like yourself.

     

    Whatever you choose to do, just know we miss you already and good luck with the move!

What to Throw Away When you Move - iMoving.com

What to Throw Away When you Move

Moving to a new place can be hectic and expensive; hence it is important to find out ways to make moving a bit easier. So many items and property in your house, from the basement to the bedroom make for the very important question of what to keep and what to throw away before you move to your new home. This is because the size and weight of your belongings is an important factor that determines the cost of your move, so when the size and weight are less, the moving cost is cheaper.

 

Thinking out the items you can throw away when you move, can be troubling, but some of these items are those which you should really get rid of before moving.

 

The Best Tips on What to Throw Away When you Move

 

1. Clothing and shoes you don’t love or wear

 

If there is clothing or shoes, you feel you wouldn't buy again if, given a chance to, there is no need to keep such an item. Check what fits you and what doesn't fit anymore, and you can donate that bulk of clothing to charity or give it out to friend. Completely discard those that have no use anymore, even on someone else. Shoes are difficult to pack and can be heavier than they seem, so you can let go of pairs that you haven’t worn in many months.

 

2. Towels

 

If you do your laundry on a regular basis, you don’t actually have a need for too many towels, and they are also very space-consuming than you might think. They are cheap to get and very bulky to pack up, and in reality, they should be replaced regularly, so get your bathroom in your new home looking sweet and bright with the presence of a new towel and stay hygienic as well. Throw away your old towels before moving into your new apartment.

 

3. Unread books and those you won't read

 

Books make up for the most items that make packing boxes heavier, and this increases the price of moving especially in long-distance cases. If you decide to move with all your books, you will be charged for a full-service packing, and this will cost even higher. Lighten the weight of your luggage when moving and prevent these books from taking up useful space in your new apartment by getting rid of those books on your shelves you hardly or never read. You can screen them and decide on which ones to donate so that someone else can enjoy and benefit from them.

 

4. Old and Expired drugs

 

One of the areas in the house which is less checked during clean up is the medicine cabinet, so moving creates an opportunity to recheck your medicine cabinet and get rid of those drugs which are too old or that are expired. This does not just only save space, but it saves lives as well because when drugs have gone past their expiration dates, they become less potent. This means that if you are taking such drugs for a particular illness or health challenge, it may not work effectively and you may not be getting the right dosage. So it is important to stay safe and healthy by using the opportunity moving brings, to throw such drugs away.

 

5. Your cups and mugs

 

When you look into your kitchen cabinet and take out a mug or a cup to get some coffee or tea, you are met with a vast array of such cups and mugs which may be cracked, old and faded, or even ones that don’t match each other and look like a nuisance in your cabinet.

 

You may obsess over some cups or mugs because of how they are nicely designed or the inscriptions they have written on them. These cups or mugs may have been collected over the years, but it is surely time to throw them out. Getting rid of these old, un-matching kitchenware means you will pack fewer boxes which in turn means an easier moving experience for you. It also gives you a chance to start over and collect new dishes that match.

 

6. Plastic containers

 

Over time you must have consciously or unknowingly kept a bulk of plastic containers either for leftovers or in preparation for future use. Most times, however, we are not even able to find lids to such containers. Packing all these containers will be time-consuming, and they probably won't be useful as even more of these containers will be packed subsequently at your new place. So go through the collection of these containers and brutally reach a decision to throw away or thrash them.

 

7. Old magazines and notebooks

 

There is always going to be a pile of magazines lying around your home if you store up old papers or if you have catalog subscriptions. You can keep the current ones but throw away or get rid of those very old ones. Donating such magazines to libraries, offices or salons is never a bad idea.

If you have old notebooks that you don't have a use for anymore, you should throw them away before you move. If there are some you have barely written in and would like to save the contents; you can do so by ripping out the important pages and putting them all in a folder. The chances of resurrecting an old notebook that you have written in and given up on, are close to zero or nothing so it will be very thoughtful to just throw such books away when moving.

 

8. Old makeup or bath products

 

A move to a new place comes with a new you, so stick to only makeup that makes you look and feel fabulous because there will be lots of time to experiment on new ideas of beauty products when you move and settle into your new place. Also, whether it is an old perfume bottle, soap, make-up items or an empty bottle of shampoo or lotion, get rid of these old bath products before you move and thrash anything that is expired and no longer being used.

 

The following table displays what to throw away when you move:
