Sometimes in an effort to save money, people attempt to recycle produce boxes and supplies around the house. Beware: produce boxes often become weakened from the moisture of transportation or product spoilage. Additionally, they sometimes house insects that can infect your new dwelling.

Another common moving error is using duct tape rather than packing tape. Duct tape does not adhere well to corrugated cardboard. The contents of duct-taped boxes may fall through the bottom for this reason.

Hiring a Mover

Selecting a moving company is a huge decision. This is not a time to be shy. Make sure you fully understand the services the mover is offering, and the rate at which those services will be provided. Because there are state and, in many cases, local regulations, it is also wise to check with your state's moving and storage association to learn the regulations that apply to movers in your area.

To help you fairly compare the services and benefits of the moving companies you are considering, we have prepared a list of questions to ask each of the moving companies that you are considering.
