As soon as you get your orders to move, you need to begin the process right away. You’ll have lots of planning to do including making sure you’re following military rules and regulations. Ace Midwest Movers can help you with several of the details. We have equipment and resources available to you so that you can move to your next post in a timely and smooth manner. If you need local Minneapolis movers, contact us right away. Below are four tips to help you get started.


1. Reserve Your Date Now

When it comes to moving, certain times of the year are busier than others. Although we have an abundant supply of trucks and professional movers, we suggest that you secure a truck and a team as soon as possible to help you move. When you call, make sure you reserve everything including any equipment and packing supplies you may need. We can take care of the rest.


2. Moving Dates May Change - Be Flexible

If there’s anything we’ve learned about the military, it’s that moving dates can change depending on your orders. Therefore, we are prepared to be flexible if necessary. You may want to prepare yourself to be flexible as well. What this means for military personnel is that the fluctuation in schedule can be as little as a few days or last a few weeks. Be sure to inform your landlord or anyone else that the schedule could change. You may be moving sooner or later than you originally planned.


3. Weight Allowance

Before you begin packing the truck, you need to know what the maximum weight allowance is. Most military branches allow service members to ask their moving company or military transportation office for a re-weigh of their household goods, and they have a right to be present when that re-weigh is conducted. Knowing what the weight limit will help you reserve the appropriate size truck when you call us.


4. Now is the Time to Liquidate

It's never too early to begin purging the stuff you don’t need. If there are items you rarely use and don’t want anymore, try to donating them to charity or have a yard sale. The cleaner your move is, the easier it will be for you and your family. Start with the larger items first and then work your way down to the smaller stuff.
