Moving Plan for Movers in Albany

It is May, National Moving Month. The month that begins the busiest relocation season of the year. If you are one of the millions in the United States about to move this summer, you need a move plan. Some people are naturals at managing a huge pile of tasks. For them organizing a move does not feel like an overwhelming challenge, but most of us could use a bit of help with the planning especially movers in Albany who are moving for the very first time.

Liedkie Moving & Storage makes it our business to assist movers in Albany with their move plan. There are so many things to consider. The mountain of tasks can seem overwhelming and add to stress levels if you don’t have a plan. Where do you begin?

Luckily there is a methodical way to go about spreading tasks out over weeks and even months so you can comfortably deal with each consideration along the way. We like to help you think of the things that need to be done and then help you with the timing of the tasks so that on moving day, you feel calm and ready to make your move. As a Prime Arpin Agent, we encourage you to check out this handy Arpin Moving Planner-Read Here. It is a fabulous guide through the move process using a timeline leading up to your Albany move. You can print the plan out and begin checking things off and taking notes. You will soon discover just how manageable the whole move can be.

Of course if you have any questions or concerns about any part of your move process, we are here to help and will guide you as best we can. We can lend our knowledge and experience to take the stress out of your move. As our movers in Albany work through all the move preparations and then the actual relocation, the Liedkie Moving & Storage team wish you a pleasant and relaxing experience every step of the way.

Albany Moving Company Celebrates National Moving Month with the Facts

It is here again! May is National Moving Month. May begins the busiest moving season of the year.  It is time to get serious about your choice for an Albany moving company. National Moving Month serves to inform and protect consumers as they embark on their search. You need to take your time and get the facts about the companies you are considering.

Today it is all too easy for a supposed mover to seem reputable on a pretty website filled with hype and false claims. Do not take any company’s website at face value until you do your fact checking. We here at Liedkie Moving & Storage encourage you to check out several sources for information about making the right and secure choice for your Albany moving company.

AMSA (American Moving & Storage Association) have teamed up this month with the BBB (Better Business Bureau) in honor of National Moving Month to bring you this article-AMSA and BBB Offer Tips for Safe, Secure Move.  We encourage you to take a moment to read the article to help you choose a reputable Albany moving company.

Liedkie Moving & Storage respect and value the work that both AMSA and BBB have carried out to protect consumers searching for a moving company. We are proud to be a BBB accredited business as well as an AMSA ProMover. Our customers enjoy real peace of mind when they trust their choice in us.

Another great resource to check out this May is one we share time and again-the US Department of Transportation’s Protect Your Move website. There are countless tips and articles on how to avoid moving fraud.
