What is the Best Way to Move From One House to Another?

The best way to make your residential move successful is to work with a reputable moving company like Bekins Van Lines. We can cover everything from packing to loading to delivery. Alongside working with a trustworthy moving company, there are other ways you can ensure a smooth move, including:

  • Get rid of stuff you don’t need. Downsizing before you pack or as you pack is a great way to make your move less stressful and less expensive. 
  • Create a moving checklist or folder. This is a great way to stay organized. If you need help getting started with your to-do list, check out our helpful moving guides and tips on our blog!

What kind of boxes do I need for my household move?

Having the right kind of packing boxes can make a world of difference on moving day. It’s probably not surprising to hear that having small, medium, and large boxes is necessary. However, it’s also extremely helpful to have specialty boxes like wardrobe and dish boxes. Learn more about how to pack like a pro!

How do I protect my floors during a move?

The best way to protect your flooring during your next move is to cover it. You can cover your floors with linens like towels, sheets, or blankets, broken down cardboard boxes, or with commercial floor coverings. Other ways to protect your floors during a move is to never drag your furniture; use a rubber-wheeled dolly to move your belongings. Learn more!
