(ARA) - Moving is such an exciting time as you look forward to acquainting yourself with your new home. But along with the excitement comes the long list of things to do. You need to get boxes, pack items, decide if you need help, clean the house, etc. The list goes on and on until you feel overwhelmed.

There are many steps that can help make the moving process happen seamlessly. One way to eliminate stress is to hire a moving company. Moving companies provide a variety of services and can save you a lot of time and frustration. Here are some pre-move steps to consider:

Inventory:
Go from room to room in your home and make a list of all the things that you will be moving. Taking an inventory of your processions will help you stay organized. This will also help when you're ready to get a quote from moving companies and when deciding which insurance you need.

Eliminate:
Everyone has processions that they don't need or want any more. Moving is a perfect time to eliminate these extra items to free up space in your new home. Consider giving away unneeded items to the local thrift store or charity. Remember, the less stuff you have, the less you have to move.

Hire Movers:
Decide whether your budget allows for a professional moving company. The easiest way to do research is to visit MovingGuru.com. Instead of having to call various companies for quotes, simply fill out the form on the Web site and up to six companies in your area will call or email you. After receiving bids and deciding which one is best for you, book the deal.

Insurance:
Because you already took inventory, look at the list and decide the value of your processions. Consider getting comprehensive insurance through your moving company. Insurance will protect the value of all your belongings.

Pack:
Most moving companies do the packing for you, then load and unload the truck. If you decided to pack on your own, use sturdy boxes that can be found at moving companies, truck rental companies or most office supply stores.

Professional moving companies can make moving a breeze virtually eliminating stress and manual labor. The easiest way to find a reputable moving company at a great rate is to visit www.MovingGuru.com. Fill out the form and let the moving companies come to you. It is one less thing you need to think about during this hectic time, making the excitement of moving that much better.
