Preparation before your move will save you both peace of mind and money.
Make Sure There's A Place To Park
The movers need a place to park their truck when coming to your home to pick up your goods.
One of the first things you should do is to contact the City where you are located, and find out what permit is required for the movers to park their truck in front of your home on move day. Usually this is a straight forward process. The professional moving company we assign for your move can also help you with this, just be sure to let the mover know well in advance.
Make sure to let the movers know everything as it relates to both access and parking. If you are living in an apartment or condominium, be sure to let movers know the location for parking and the times you have reserved the access elevators for your move.
Packing For The Move
Packing small and light items into boxes will save time on move day, and also save you money. If you do not have time to do this, then make sure you let the mover know that you want the full pack.
With your boxes packed, you should take all of them to the front of your home, leaving the heavier items (such as bed, couch, kitchen table) for the movers to load into their truck. To the side of your boxes (also at front of home) you should place together all light weight fragile items. These boxes and light fragile items will be the first items into the truck.
The time it takes the mover to complete your move is dependent on how well packed and prepared you are.

We used MUVA for our move from San Diego to Connecticut. We decided on using MUVA because we were overwhelmed in sourcing a quality moving company.
With MUVA we found the quote process a breeze. We were pleasantly surprised and felt greater peace of mind by providing the moving company our video. We knew that the mover had thoroughly reviewed all the items that we wanted moved and we were impressed with the experience that our moving company had with interstate moves.
The movers were true pros, and thank you MUVA for making our move safe, easy and affordable.
Making the decision to move from Bel Aire to Newport Beach (CA) was not an easy one. Finding a mover that was qualified enough to move my valuable, and specialty (grand piano), items was much more difficult than I would have imagined. Every moving company that I contacted to move these valuable and expensive items did not measure up to my standards.
When I was referred Muva, I was skeptical. This changed after I finished taking the video and reviewed the quote. Not only was the quote process clean and simple, the moving company that provided the quote was the most well qualified company for my move. They covered all the bases, so to speak, arrived on time and packed everything like true professionals. My valuable items arrived at my new home as if they were untouched.
Thank you Muva for saving my precious time and working your moving magic.
Planning the move from my place in San Clemente to San Jose required a lot of thought. Parking at the seaside community is scarce at the best of times. Looking for a good moving company provided disappointing results.
I tried Muva because I liked the look of their app - and it cost me nothing to get a quote. So I thought why not give them a try? Taking a video made everything so convenient, no longer did I have to spend my precious time waiting for a mover to show up and walk through my place. Not only did the moving company provide me a great quote, they even contacted the City and helped me organize parking for my move.
I saved over one thousand dollars just by having the moving company review my move and quote over the app, and I also got a better mover than I had been able to find on my own. Muva took the stress out of my move and they provided the highest quality mover at the best price. I am now a believer in the Muva magic.

After selling our home in Beverly Hills we needed to rent for 6 months before completing the purchase and moving into our condominium in Marina Del Rey. This required finding a moving company that was experienced in handling fragile and expensive items (sculptures, art work), along with expertise in moving and packing those items into storage. We also needed to find a secure storage facility that would provide our movers ground level easy access for their large truck, so that they can efficiently and safely unload and pack our valuables, and then return in 6 months to pick them up for moving into our new place.
Muva not only provided us the best moving company for our move, they also sourced the best storage facility for us. Everything went so smoothly, from the moving company arrival and loading of our precious items, to storage and setting everything up perfectly into our new home. We have moved several times and never before have we experienced anything like the quality of the Muva movers. Muva made the whole process easy and took care of every single detail. We saved time, saved money, and got service like we’ve never had before. Muva is the only company we would trust to move valuable items in the future.
Dudley & Sybil R
We lived in Studio City, California for over 20 years. Our home was a large 5-bedroom house, and inside we had designer furniture and antiques that we needed to move to our new home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As a retired couple we were reluctant to book anything using a phone app, we had never downloaded any app before.
Our son, Gordon, convinced us that it was very easy to get a custom quote with a high qualified, licensed and insured moving company using the Muva app. He was correct; using the app and taking the video was very easy, and we even had fun doing it!
The moving company gave the most detailed review of our video, and we saved an enormous amount of money by not having them come out to our home. They knew how to wrap and load our valuable possessions. Very pleased we chose to use Muva to make our move as easy as 1-2-3.

• Use free boxes: There are enough free boxes that you get in grocery stores and supermarkets.
• Set a deadline: For each room that you pack, set a deadline for yourself. This will help you keep your pace in check and move along faster.

It's important to know your surroundings. Hence, before moving into your new home, scan the neighborhood and locality properly.
