Tips for Holiday Season Moving

Your guide to moving while making the holidays special.

Moving can add extra stress to the holiday season. Follow some of our tips and tricks to navigate holiday season moving!

moving vanMost people have more days off school and work during the holiday season. Rather than taking off extra vacation days, the holidays offer a built-in time to move and get settled. So even though it might be an extra busy time of year, in many cases it’s worth fitting in your move.

But how can you celebrate the holidays and make a big move at the same time? Your holiday season will be different from other years, no doubt. But that’s no reason to not make the most of the most special time of the year.

Surviving Holiday Season Moving

For residential moving, it’s important to take some time off to be with your loved ones. The thing is, taking time off from the move requires extra planning and efficiency, so here are a few tips to help with your holiday moving plans.

  • 1. Ensure your mover is a licensed and certified in their field. That way you’ll avoid moving scams and make sure your belongings arrive safe and on time. Arrow Moving offers experienced, licensed, uniformed and professional movers for all moving needs.
  • 2. Separate your belongings between those you’ll need before and after the holiday season. For example, pack gifts, cooking supplies and special clothes separately. Label the boxes clearly. When you arrive at your new home, only unpack the boxes necessary for the holidays. Separating “before” and “after” boxes is a good way to reduce stress, as you won’t need to sort through your newly arrived belongings.
  • 3. Put together a holiday moving kit for young children. Include holiday–themed coloring books, games and other activities. If you have a long drive ahead, make sure to include calming holiday music and classic movies. This helps your children understand that this is still a special time of year, even with a big move.

Organize With A Moving Checklist

Use a moving checklist creates some organization on moving day.

Organization is the key to happiness and tranquility when it comes to something like moving. You can never underestimate the importance of a well thought out plan and clearly labeled boxes when push comes to shove. Follow these simple steps and create a moving checklist to keep everything sorted and prevent any stress in the moving process.

Keep all of your documentation in one place. A simple folder or according file storage can do wonders when it comes to keeping all of your documents sorted. You can keep things like your moving quote, all of the information that you have about your new home or business location as well as any receipts that might accumulate during the process.

Sort and purge any unwanted items before you start the packing process. Everything will go much more smoothly if you organize before things go into boxes. It will also help the unpacking process.

Label, label, label. It does sound redundant but it can be a crucial part of your moving checklist. Not only will it help you organize everything when it arrives at your new home but it will also help you and the moving company know how to group the boxes in the moving truck. A good sharpie is a small investment and can be a lifesaver.

Take measurements. It will help if you take measurements of all of your large items such as furniture and if possible have measurements of your future space for planning purposes. You can take all of this information, layout your future rooms and put it all in your moving folder.

Change your address. It seems like a simple step but it is one of the most important. If you take the time to sort your change of address before you start moving then you will have one less thing to worry about and will never have to go back to your previous residence to pick up any mail. It is an essential part of your moving checklist.

If you have any more questions or would like any personalized moving advice from the friendly professionals at Arrow Moving and Storage feel free to give us a call today.

Bubble Wrap Is Your Friend On Moving Day

Bubble wrap may be one of the most useful tools you have when packing delicate objects for your big move. Our professional staff will always ensure that your belongings are not damaged and everything arrives safely at your new home or business but it never hurts to have some additional protection. Here are some tips and tricks to help you make the most of it and how you can be better prepared on moving day.

Bubble wrap your dishes. Dishes are probably the most common item in your house that should make friends with bubble wrap while packing. Simply wrapping each dish with a layer of the bubbly stuff before placing them in cardboard boxes will keep them safe and ready for pizza when you settle in.

Pre-wrap some items before bubble wrap. Some of your more delicate ceramics of glass items can end up with little remnants of plastic from the bubbles themselves. This can happen more often if the items are exposed to sunlight or higher temperatures for an extended amount of time. If you wrap the items in paper before applying the bubble wrap you can avoid this problem.

Bubbles in or bubbles out? This is a surprisingly common question. The general consensus is that the bubbles should be facing inward. The main reason for this is that the primary purpose of the bubbles is to secure the item and provide a bit of a cushion if there is any bouncing. This can only happen if the bubbles are facing inward and making contact with the item being protected.

Tape every side. It can be easy to wrap your item in bubble wrap and only tape one side to make a seal. While it may seem like a good idea at the time it is better to tape all of the sides to make sure there aren’t any holes for your item to slip out of its protective covering.

Use bubble wrap lined envelopes for flat objects. The reason for this is simple – it’s easier. Not only does the bubble wrap provide added protection but taking something out of an envelope is easier than unwrapping it like a present.

Having all of your belongings safe and snug in some bubble wrap will help everything go smoothly while Arrow Moving and Storage takes care of the rest for you. Call us today for a quote.

Easily Prevent Moving Scams

Avoid common moving scams and save money in the process

Hiring a moving company without properly vetting them first can be the cause of all sorts of problems. Thousands of people are taken advantage of every year by fly-by-night moving companies that make big promises but fail to follow through. Some common results of moving scams can be large delays in delivery of your stuff, damaged or stolen property, a misleading estimate that ends up being a bait-and-switch, or even having your things held for ransom.

Here are some things you can do to keep yourself safe.

Check the moving company’s rating with the Better Business Bureau. Arrow Moving and Storage is fully accredited with the BBB and handles all customer service with the utmost seriousness and speed.

Get an in-home estimate. Not all moving companies will send a representative to your home in order to provide you with an estimate. This is the only way to get an accurate idea of how much the move will cost. Arrow Moving will have someone from the company available in your home to answer your questions face-to-face and to break down the estimate and make sure everything is easily understandable for you.

Get complete contracts. Some moving scams can start with an incomplete contract. Make sure that your contract doesn’t include any blank spaces that will be filled after the fact. Movers are not legally allowed to charge more than 110 percent of the quoted price no matter what happens. In the end, make sure you feel comfortable with what you are getting into. Our friendly staff are available at any time to answer any questions you might have and make sure you get the best experience possible.

Not only does Arrow Moving offer full value protection but we are also licensed and bonded as well so you know that your are safe with us.

Moving Insurance and Protection

Full Value Moving Insurance

Protecting your personal belongings during your move is as important to you as it is to us. That’s why Arrow Moving offers a plan to protect you if the unexpected happens to your personal items during your move. Our moving insurance is easy to understand, and it’s included upfront with every Arrow Moving move.

Here’s how it works: The default amount of full-value protection is automatically included with your move using the estimated weight of your total shipment.

  • $6 x 10,000 lbs = $60,000

The protection amount is calculated at a rate of $6 per pound multiplied by the estimated weight of your total shipment.

For example, Arrow Moving will offer $60,000 in shipment protection for a 10,000 pound shipment. During your move: If we cause damage or loss to any of your personal belongings they will be either repaired or replaced up to the total amount of the shipment protection that you select.

Included with Full-Value Protection moving insurance is the High Value Inventory Form. This form must be used to list any items valued greater than $100 per pound. It’s important that each item being moved is carefully considered by you with this in mind. So if an item has a value beyond $100 per pound, be sure to list the item on the High Value Inventory Form. As you can see, your use of the High Value Inventory Form assures you the full benefit of your Full-Value Protection for your valuable items.

At Arrow Moving, we understand that moving can be a stressful time, let Full-Value Protection moving insurance help ease your mind.

Moving Expenses Tax Deduction

Sometimes Changing Places Can Pay with a Moving Expenses Tax Deduction

You may, under certain circumstances, deduct some moving expenses on your federal income tax return if you complete the appropriate forms. Though Arrow Moving and Storage cannot give you tax advice, we have prepared a summary of some of the issues you should consider about the tax implications of your move. Because laws change frequently, you should always consult the Internal Revenue Service or your personal tax advisor for the most current information about your particular situation

Do You Qualify?

If you are moving in order to start a new job or have been transferred to a new location in your current job, the IRS allows you a reasonable moving expenses tax deduction as an adjustment to gross income if certain conditions, including the following, are met: The change in job location would require you to commute at least 50 miles (one way) farther to work had you not moved. That 50 miles must be based on the shortest of the most commonly traveled routes. The move occurs within one year of the date you begin work at the new location. You work full time (for any employer) in the general vicinity of the new location for at least 39 weeks during the 12-month period following the move. If you are transferred, laid off or become disabled before the end of the 39-week period, you still may claim moving expenses. If you are self-employed, you must work full time for a total of at least 78 weeks during the 24 months immediately after you move.

Deductible Expenses

If you meet the qualifications for a moving expenses tax deduction, the following types of expenses may be deductible if you moved with the United States or from a foreign country into U.S. territory. Packing and Transporting You can deduct the reasonable expenses of packing, crating and transporting your family’s personal effects from your former home to your new one. Moving expenses can also include the transportation of your automobile and pets and the cost of valuation and in-transit storage. For moves within the United States, the deduction of in-transit storage expenses is limited to the cost of 30 consecutive days of storage after your goods are picked up. Guidance about whether particular expenses are reasonable is available from the IRS. Travel You can deduct the cost of your personal, one-way transportation and lodging. The trip should be the shortest, most direct route available for the type of transportation selected. It is not necessary that all family members travel at the same time. However, the expenses for only one trip per person may be deducted. Additional information about particular expenses may be obtained from the IRS.

Moving Documents Checklist

You should keep records pertaining to your move in one place, and keep them for at least three years. Those records should include:

Mover’s Documents

• Bill of Lading

• Inventory

• Additional Services Performed form

Travel Expense Receipts

• Personal transportation costs (air, bus or train fares, and/or automobile expenses)

• Lodging

IRS Tax Forms and Information

• W-2 Wage and Tax Statement (from employer)

• 4782 Employee Moving Expense Information (from employer)

• 1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return

• Schedule A – Itemized Deductions

• Schedule D – Capital Gains and Losses

• Form 3903 – Moving Expenses

• Publication 521 – Moving Expenses

• Publication 523 – Tax Information on Selling Your Home

• Publication 530 – Tax Information for Homeowners

• Publication 553 – Highlights of Tax Changes

Keep in mind that Arrow Moving and Storage cannot offer specific tax advice and any specific inquiries should be directed to a tax professional.
