Frequently Asked Questions about Moving Companies .:

How much does a move cost?

This is the most frequently asked question and it has no definite answer. The cost of a move is based on many factors: weight, distance, length of time and the manpower involved. The best option is to contact each prospective mover and request a free estimate. Here are some tips on getting a good estimates. However, don't let price be the deciding factor. It should be about getting your family and your items safely to your new residence. The reputation of a good moving company should go a long way.

How do I begin packing for a move?

Packing is one of the most important aspects of your move. It is recommended that you have the proper moving boxes. The ones you can get from supermarkets may be free but they're not nearly as strong or padded. They are more susceptible to causing damage to your valuables in transit.

Always remember that the heavier the item, the smaller the box that it should occupy. Buffer and separate fragile objects with sheets, blankets, pillows and towels. Fill in empty spaces to minimize movement during transit. Always mark the boxes containing fragile items. Here's how you can pack like a pro.

How much are you supposed to tip movers?

Tips differ depending on the size and difficulty of the move as well as the efforts put forth by the movers. An honest day's job should not go unnoticed. The average tip for local moves is 7-12% of the total bill. The average tip for long distance moves is $3-5 per hour based on the labor. It is best that you compensate each mover separately to acknowledge the hard work by everyone involved in the relocation. Learn more essential moving tips.

I'm looking to purchase a home, what should the inspection include?

The professional inspector that you hire will evaluate the foundations, roofing, ventilation, insulation, plumbing and electrical systems, heating, pest situation (termites), ceilings, floors, septic tanks, and toxic materials. The inspector is not responsible for latent defects, meaning anything that can't be seen by the eye. However, the seller is required to disclose all known defects.

Are any of my moving expenses deductible?

The moving process can be costly.However, some moving expenses can be tax-deductable.

  • Job-related relocation. If your new job is at 50 miles away from your old job, the IRS allows you to claim some expenses as tax deductions.
  • Packing and unpacking expenses. Includes materials and services, such as boxes and moving services.
  • Transportation to your new home. Includes moving trucks, rental vans, and personal travel. Lodging is also deductible.
  • Moving insurance. Either standard, declared value or full replacement value.
  • Storage. Up to a month during the relocation.
  • Donations. Moving is the best time to rid yourself of unwanted possessions. Toss aside everything you don't want to bring with you. If you give your unwanted items to charity, you can deduct your donations. Keep a list and approximate value of what you've donated, along with the receipt from the charitable center, and submit both items with your tax return. However, there is such a thing as too many donations.

Consult the IRS webpage for specific information and to download the necessary forms.

How do I keep my cat from going back to the "old house" once we move?

Cats tend to become more attached to their environment rather than to people. As you settle into your new home, spend some more time with your cat. Sit down with it and provide your cat with a comfortable living space. Keep it in and around the house for as long as it takes them to become acclimated. Limit the cats' explorations to just the new house and then gradually accompany it on tours outside.

Confining the cat may seem a bit cruel, but cats are more likely to run back to the old house, no matter the distance. This process could last up to a month before the cat becomes completely familiar with the new house, the scents, and noises it makes on the new carpet and floors.
