- Save time: Researching and calling moving companies is time-intensive and still doesn’t guarantee you’ll find the right one.
- Avoid less than honest companies: Many companies make huge promises with no intention of delivering what they promised. This includes overcharging and poor service.

- Full Packing: It’s possible that you can organize your move, but packing may be out of the question because of time or mobility issues. Professional movers will pack your home systematically, ensuring items are organized, safe and protected.

Besides distance traveled, both types of moves require the packing, loading and transporting of your possessions. Companies assisting with your move should be licensed and insured which all of our iMoving partners are.

Use These Moving Tips for a Successful Salt Lake City Move
Buy a variety of sizes
When collecting or buying boxes, make sure you get a range of sizes. Think hard about what you need to pack because most people think they need a ton of large or XL boxes when they actually need small and medium ones. Remember, things are usually easier to transport in smaller boxes, so get lots of small boxes, a good amount of medium and a few wardrobe boxes too.
You need more than boxes to move
People usually remember to buy boxes. The problem is boxes are the only thing they remember to buy. Don’t let this happen to you. Other supplies like tape, sharpies, labels and bubble wrap are necessary too. Buy more than enough tape and a tape gun to assemble boxes easier. Before you go shopping, make a list.
Paper is good for packing
Using newspaper to wrap delicate items is not the best idea because the ink will smear and stain the valuable items it touches. You can use proper packing paper, or try brown paper bags. Both help you avoid washing every piece of glassware and dish before putting them away.
Prep your furniture
If furniture can be easily disassembled by you, you should have it done before moving day. For everything else, have a list ready for the movers so they know what needs to be broken down. Also, remove any heavy and breakable items from the furniture so they are easier to lift and disassemble.
Sort the details out ahead of time
A successful move is all about paying attention to details. A move will go much more smoothly if you have a few details pinned down. Knowing where movers are able to park the truck, the best exits and entrances of the building and any moving hour or parking limitations is going to make the day go much better.
Good Things to Know When Moving to Salt Lake City, UT
Fry sauce is actually awesome
Some Dude’s Fry Sauce has a special place in the hearts of SLC locals. This condiment made of tomatoes, garlic, chilies, and secret ingredients is used on barbecue foods like hotdogs, burgers and French fries. You may just love it so much that you put it on everything. Everyone would understand.
Everyone has a strong opinion about the best coffee
Need a coffee fix? SLC has plenty of places to choose from and loyalists ready to show you the “right” spot to go to. Coffee Garden, Coffee Noir, and Salt Lake Roasting Co are heavy favorites, but for late-night caffeine, try Nostalgia Café.
SLC residents celebrate different independence in July
Of course July 4th is celebrated, but there’s also something here called Pioneer Day. This day takes place on July 24th and commemorates the 1847 arrival of Mormon settlers. Expect most places to be closed because it is a state holiday. For non-Mormons, this day is known as Pie and Beer Day – there’s no need to tell you the way it’s celebrated, right?
An unusual, yet relaxing garden
Home to engraved stones and sculptures that highlight biblical verses and themes, Gilgal Sculpture Garden is tucked away in a quiet park. It’s ok if you feel like it’s a strange place, most people do because of the Egyptian sphinx and the LDS Church founder’s face, Joseph Smith, that are also present.
A football rivalry you don’t want to get in the middle of
The rivalry between the University of Utah and Brigham Young crosses the lines of age, race, and gender and can tear families apart. The passionate responses between these teams and fans are very real and are most apparent during the “Holy War” annual football game.
