    Don’t fool yourself.  Even if you need to move quickly, there are things you can do to prepare for the move.  After all, not many people decide to up-and-move in a day or two.  Therefore, are things you can do to prepare for the big day.

    Firstly, since you know you will be moving, make sure you start researching companies.  Go online, ask friends and ask your realtor if they have a list of reputable companies.  No matter what method you use, get the information as soon as you realize you are about to move.  The sooner you start getting information, the better prepared you’ll be.

    Next, get everything you need.  There are plenty of shipping supply stores in or near every neighborhood.  Start measuring your furniture and get ideas for what you’ll need to pack.  Once you know that information, go to the shipping store and talk to one of the assistants there.  They will be able to give you any further advice you’ll need.

    Lastly, make sure that you are packed before the movers come.  If you aren’t, they will have to help you.  As a result, two things are bound to happen.  More time will be spent packing, and you may be charged extra for the help they needed to give you.  Check with your chosen moving company about extra costs.
