6 Common Mistakes Made When People Move

It’s common to make moving mistakes. After all, it’s not often that we pack up our entire homes and relocate. So when we do, we’re encountering unchartered territory.  Below are some common mistakes people make before or during a move, which can be prevented to make moving day run smoothly and seamlessly. Isaac’s Moving and Storage has been moving people around cities in the United States for over 25 years. Whether you are moving down the street or to another state across the country, we can take care of your needs. We understand that moving to a new home can be stressful and we want to help you.

Wing It

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can just wing it the week of, or worse – the day of – the move. A lot of time and preparation needs to go into your move to make moving day run seamlessly, and waiting until the last minute to map out a plan will only confuse things. Get recommendations from friends, quote moving companies and do your due diligence before moving day.

Moving Companies Book Up

Remember moving companies like Isaac’s Moving can book up during certain times of the year. It’s best to plan ahead and leave yourself time to hire the reputable company you want. Our experience and dedication to providing quality customer service for residential clients has made us one of the most trusted names in the residential moving industry. With offices in Boston, Philadelphia and Houston, Isaacs Moving and Storage is your solution for a successful move at a fair price.

Moving Insurance

Don’t forget moving insurance. It is possible for items to get damaged during the move, and you will regret it if something breaks but you didn’t get insurance. Isaac’s offers different options for local/long distance and international to insure your belongings. Isaacs Moving provide basic insurance coverage for loss or damage to your goods.


We recommend you transport valuables like fine jewelry or family heirlooms, yourself in your own vehicle so you know exactly where they are throughout the move. As a luxury moving service, however, Isaac’s Moving and Storage is also a specialty packing service, which includes special items like pianos and artwork.

Taking Inventory

It would be a mistake not to check inventory, since you want to be sure nothing was left behind. By taking inventory and checking it twice, you can rest assure everything in your moving boxes is accounted for. Do it the day you move in to your new home so you know every item of your belongings made it safe and sound.

First Night Survival Kit

You’re feeling good about the move, and you’re finally in the new house. But where are your pajamas? Many people forget to pack a bag you of belongings you will need for the first night or so, before you dig into unpacking your plethora of boxes. You will need some necessities like toothpaste, medicine, pet food, linens, etc. to get you through the first few days without having to scour through your boxes to find what you need.
