10 top moving mistakes and how to avoid them

Moving is hard enough without making mistakes. And believe us, we’ve seen it all. After 80 years in the moving and storage business in Brooklyn, we’ve collected enough moving wisdom to write a book. But we’re busy, so we decided to write a blog post instead. Below are the top 10 moving mistakes we’ve seen and how to avoid them.

1. Failing to Purge

There’s a reason people have Moving Sales. It’s much easier to let your neighbors carry off your never-used fondue pot and your twice-used treadmill than to move it to your next home where they will continue to collect dust. Set all of your unwanted items out in the yard on a sunny Saturday morning, and send all of old stuff to new homes. Plus, you get to earn a little cash.

Purge everything you are not going to use in your new place

2. Using Sub-Par Supplies

It’s great to find ways to keep your moving costs down, but using sub-par supplies can lead to frustration, broken items, and inefficiencies. When you buy high-quality moving boxes, tape, and packing papers, your goods are better protected and the boxes stack nicely in storage and in the moving truck.

Beware of wet boxes…


3. Neglect to Planning Ahead

Planning is essential for a successful move. If you procrastinate and fail to plan, moving trucks may all be booked up. This is especially true during the busy summer months. Make your reservation with a moving company early.

Some moves are more complicated than others….


4. Forget to Plan for Pets

With so many things on your mind, it’s easy to overlook the fact that your pets have to move, too. It would be easy if you could pack them in moving boxes, but of course, you can’t. If you don’t already have a portable kennel, acquire one ahead of your move so you pet can get used to it. If possible, find a friend who is willing to keep your pet during moving day so he’s not underfoot.

5. Neglect Your Plants

Like pets, plants don’t do well in moving boxes, so you’re going to have to make special arrangements for them. A few weeks ahead of your move, transplant your plants into lighter weight, unbreakable pots that will be easier to move. If you can’t move some of your plants, donate them to friends or a local retirement home.

6. Count On Your Friends to Load the Truck

Yes, you may have helped your friends pack of your moving truck in the past, but counting on return favors can be risky. By the time you’re ready for loading, you’ll probably already be exhausted. Hiring movers who are insured and trained can make all the difference during your move. And your friends will thank you for it.

7. Winging It

Before you pack a single box, sit down with a calendar and a piece of paper and start writing out the details of our move. Get estimates from moving companies, think about your specialty items that will require extra care, think about both ends of the move. Will you need temporary storage? Do you need custom packing supplies? It helps to walk through each room of your home and to visualize everything in boxes.

8. Forgetting to Pack a Survival Kit

When everything you own is in a moving truck, you can find yourself without any clean clothes or even your tooth brush. To avoid this problem, pack a survival kit ahead of moving day. Include basic tools like scissors, a screwdriver, a flashlight, pet food, your pajamas, toilet paper, soap, and regular medications. It always helps to have cash on hand for grabbing a quick meal.

9. Forgetting to Label Boxes

If you do the packing yourself, adopt the habit of carefully labeling each box. Be specific in your labeling. Instead of writing “Kitchen” on a label, write “Kitchen–Coffee Maker and Toaster.” You’ll be thankful you were specific when it’s Sunday morning at your new place and you’re scrambling through fifty boxes looking for the equipment you need to make breakfast.

Why hire BBB accredited movers for a better moving experience?

When you hire a moving company for your Brooklyn move, you’re putting all of your possessions in the hands of someone else. That requires trust, but without personally knowing the people who will be helping with your move, how do you know if you’re making a good decision?

Some moving companies come out of nowhere for the summer season and then disappear, never to be heard of again. Others try their hand at moving but find they’re not very good at it or don’t have the proper equipment and resources to get the job done. One strategy for ensuring a better moving experience is to find the best BBB movers in Brooklyn.

Why is it helpful to work with BBB movers?

The Better Business Bureau sets high ethical standards for business conduct, and then these high standards are used as a benchmark for rating local business. The BBB has developed a Business Partner Code of Conduct, and businesses choose whether or not they wish to comply with the code. When you find BBB movers, you know that you can count on their commitment to trust, legal and regulatory compliance, honest advertising, privacy standards, and integrity.

Here at U.Santini, we’re proud to be A+ BBB movers, and the reason we’re proud is that we know what such a rating entails:


Whenever you do business with a person or a company, you trust that they’ll be fair in their dealings with you. With movers, you trust that they’ll show up on time, treat your possessions with care and respect, and be gentle with your home. You also trust that they’ll charge you the agreed upon rate and provide the services they promised. In return they trust that you will come through with timely payment and be respectful to their employees. The BBB trusts that its partners will uphold their Code of Conduct. Here at U. Santini moving and storage we are proud to be a trusted moving and storage company, as well as being a cost effective Brooklyn moving company.

Trust- The most important commodity in the Moving industry


Legal and Regulatory Compliance

A+ BBB movers are compliant with applicable laws and regulations in their jurisdictions. For moving companies, this means having the proper permits, licenses, and insurance for their company. This is important for you because it means your possessions are in good, legal hands during your move, and if something goes wrong, you’ll be covered.

Compliance with laws and rgulations


Honest Advertising

Have you ever seen a great deal on an ad and then found out later that the advertised deal wasn’t exactly honest? This kind of behavior is frowned upon by the BBB Code of Ethics, and you won’t find moving companies with A+ BBB ratings that engage in such a practice.

This means we keep your personal data secure and take care with your contact preferences.

8 tips to help seniors move to a new house

When your elderly parents need to move, either to a new home or to a nursing home, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. As mobility diminishes, it’s tough to keep up with housework, and your parents’ home may have become disorganized in recent months. Also, many seniors, like all of us, tend to keep things that they don’t necessarily use, and it can be difficult to make decisions about what to give away and what to keep. The help of a professional moving company can help in many ways as you undertake this big job. What can you do to ease the process of moving your parents to a new house?

Moving your parents to a new house or a nursing home
Moving your parents does not have to be hard…

1. Begin with Sorting

Before you ever start packing boxes or arranging for storage, start by helping seniors to sort through their belongings and let go of items they don’t use anymore. This can be very difficult, especially if they grew up in times of scarcity, but in the long run, they’ll be much happier with fewer things to care for and less to move.

It’s often easier to give items away if you know they’re going to a good home, so make suggestions of whom to give certain items to: “Dan’s daughter Kaley loves dolls; maybe she would like to take care of this one.” Donating to charities can also be a satisfying way to reduce your number of possessions.

2. Take Pictures

Seniors will be more comfortable in their new home if furniture and objects are arranged similarly to the way they were positioned in their old home. For example, keeping the same family photos on top of the dresser or laying a favorite quilt over the sofa can be the touches that help them to begin adjusting to their new circumstances. Taking pictures will help you to create a familiar atmosphere later on when you unpack.

Take good pictures of your packed items


3. Start Small

If you wait until the last minute, your parents may feel that everything happens too quickly. If you begin early, however, they can take care of small tasks without overtaxing their energy or feeling there’s no time “to say good-bye.” You can begin by asking them to tackle just one desk drawer or attic box per day. If they can manage the sentimental items, you can delegate more utilitarian packing to professional packers or volunteers.

Making an unpacking plan will save you time and effort



4. Keep Packing Materials On Hand

If you can provide your parents with high-quality packing materials, they can begin working on packing during their spare time and as they have energy, even when you’re not there to help. Packing materials like bubble wrap and packing papers will also help with protecting fragile heirlooms and dishes.

5. Evaluate Changes in Square Footage

If your parents will be moving to a smaller place, you’ll need to know how much they can take with them. It can be very helpful to obtain a room layout of their new home so you can help your parents know what furniture they can take. This is especially helpful if the change is drastic, like moving from a three-bedroom house to a one-bedroom condo.

6. Hire Outside Help

Working with a trusted moving company can be a big help when it comes to moving your parents. A professional moving company that offers a variety of resources and services can provide you with lots of different options. For example, if your parents’ new home isn’t quite ready when they have to move out of their current home, the professional moving company can store their belongings in their storage facility until you need them again. Also, you can spend your time caring for your parents instead of packing and loading boxes.

7. Honor Your Parents’ Preferences

Seniors adapt much better after a move if they were able to maintain control of the process. Even though it may be tempting to jump in and make all the arrangements yourself, remember that you like to be in control of your own life, and it’s no different for your parents. Listen carefully to their concerns and wishes, and do your best to address the concerns and honor their requests.

8. Help Your Parents Acclimate

Unpacking quickly can help your parents to acclimate because they’ll see all of their belongings and be able to get on with their lives. If you can help them to meet their new neighbors and learn how to visit the shops and restaurants in their new neighborhood, they’ll get their bearings more quickly in their new home.

Moving in the spring or summer is not the best way to save on your moving costs. You can read our blog post “What is the best time to move to a new home?” to see what is the the most cost effective time to move and why. But, many of us do not have the luxury of choosing when we move and for a lot of people, spring and summer are the time the have to move. As a lot of people tend to move in the summer months,

1. it is usually harder and more expensive to find an apartment to rent, or buy, in these months. If you are planning to move in August, than start searching for a new apartment in April. Summertime is the time when many students and other young people leave home or school to find a job in a metropolitan area. If you intend to move to a big city, than finding an apartment before summer months is imperative.

Always better than throwing your old stuff in a landfill, or just dragging it to your new home.

U.santini moving and storage, family moving house
How much will our move cost?

Moving budget checklist- How much will my move cost?:

Your move cost will be determined by a few major factors.

  1. The time of the year – Moving cost change according tot he supply and demand in the real estate and moving industries. Summer is the busiest season for these industries for reasons we detail in our blog post: What is the best time to move to a new home? Check it out for more details and guidance. In general, moving in the winter months is cheaper than moving in the busy summer months.
  2. What is the size of your load – Regardless if you intend to hire a moving company, or move on your own. The more things you have to move, the bigger the cost for the move. Moving companies usually charge by the hour, or a flat rate for a local move. The more items you have, the longer it will take to pack and move them. The bigger the load, the bigger the price tag will be for your move’s flat rate. On long distance, or interstate move, movers usually charge either by weight or by volume. Again, you will pay less for smaller, lighter shipments. Even if you intend to move on your own, a bigger load will require you to rent a bigger truck at a higher price point.
  3. The distance to your destination – Moving companies charge by distance for interstate moves. The longer the route to your new destination, the more expensive the move will be. If you intend to drive the truck yourself to your new destination, you will need to factor the cost of gas, food and lodging on the way to your new home.

Your moving expenses usually breakdown to three major components:

  • Real estate related expenses
  • Move logistics
  • Travel cost

Real Estate related expenses:

  • Broker’s fee for finding the new place
  • First month’s rent
  • Security deposit
  • Pro-rated current month’s rent (if you move in the middle of a month)
  • Utility deposit (Not always necessary)

You can calculate these costs easily and accurately by talking to your broker and landlord. you will probably need to prepare certified checks or bank checks for these first payments.

What will be my Real Estate expenses?









Move logistics and execution:

These are expenses related to the move itself.

  • Cost of hiring a moving company. Or cost of truck rental
  • Moving insurance
  • Packing materials
  • Temporary storage unit (if needed)
  • Food and drinks for the movers or for your friends who agreed to help you in your time of need…
  • Tips for the professional movers
  • Clean up costs – Sometimes you will need to repaint the apartment, or clean it up before handing it back to your landlord

These type of costs are a little harder to accurately quantify before hand. Let’s say that you are moving your apartment, or moving your home from Brooklyn to Queens, and you would like to hire a trusted Brooklyn moving company perform the move for you. You should than invite at least three reputable moving companies to visit your place and submit written estimates for the move. Compare these estimates, check the companies references on Yelp, Google business center and on the Better Business Bureau websites. Only choose a company with good reputation and a good track record of dealing with claims. Find the best moving value and best reputation and choose this company.

Use professionals movers to do a professional job












Travel related expenses:

Travel related expenses are only related to long distance moves.

  • Air fare
  • Lodgings
  • Food
  • Gas
  • Tolls
  • Unexpected expenses (Allow an overflow of 10% from your budget for unexpected expenses. They always happen….)

Here also, it is hard to estimate the expenses accurately before hand. You can use the website Travel math to help you calculate these expenses. the longer the distance, the higher the cost of your travel.

Moving company, travel for moving, Brooklyn mover
Add the cost of travel to the cost of your move


These are the main factors that contribute to the price of your move. If your calculations indicate that the price of the move is more than you can afford, than try to reduce it by making a change to the price factors you might have control upon. the timing of your move, the size of your shipment or the distance to your new place.

Organizing an office move in five easy steps

Office relocation is usually more stressful than a residential move. A residential move is usually more flexible in terms of timing and unpacking schedule. Most individuals and families have some flexibility in their schedule and are willing to work with the moving company in terms of determining an acceptable moving date, start time, end time and unpacking. When you are moving your office you have much less choice in these maters. You want your office move to take place over the weekend, so that business will not be disturbed. You want the corporate relocation company to unpack everything and have all of your systems, telephone, computer networks, servers etc. to be up and running on Monday morning.


To make sure that these tasks happen in an efficient and cost effective manner you need to hire a trusted moving company that has expertise in office relocation in NYC.

How do you choose a good office relocation company? Ask the following questions before you hire your office movers:

  • How long your company has been in this business?
  • Do you specialize in corporate moves?
  • How many commercial moves have you performed in the last six months?
  • Does your quoted rate includes cost of packing materials?
  • Do you own your own removal equipment like van and truck, or will you rent it?
  • Do you provide insurance?
  • Can you fax a certificate of insurance to both buildings?
  • Do you provide IT and phone set up services?
  • Are you registered with the BBB? and if so, what is your rating?

Who is a reputable moving company?

Five steps to organizing a great office move:

  1. Prepare and delegate – Planning is the most important part of an office move. You need to be up and running ASAP. Preferably, having everything back to normal in your new office on Monday morning. If you are back in business in business and making money on Monday morning than you can consider your move a success. The more preparation and planning you do in advance, the better chance you have in achieving this goal.  The less time you spend organizing your new office, the more cost-efficient you will be for your company.In order to save time, make sure you are very familiar with your new location and offices. Ask the new building management company for time to come in with your team and measure the new space carefully. Make sure that all of your furniture and equipment actually fit in the new space. If you see that some of the equipment does not fit, than make plans not to move these pieces to your new office and purchase new furniture and equipment that fit ahead of time.  Make an exact floor plan or the new seating arrangements and the new equipment hubs. Make sure every one of your employees has a copy of the the plan and know exactly where he/she are going to sit in the new space. Moving your offices is usually quite a complex ordeal. Don’t try to do everything yourself. Delegate duties and chores among your team members. IT people need to be in charge of moving their equipment and setting it up in your new location. Management roles need to help organize their departments and make sure that they are ready to perform their duties as quickly as possible after the move. Appoint an internal person to be in charge of the move and the communication with the moving company, building management etc.
  2. Inventory – It is very hard to keep track of all of the equipment and furniture in a medium or large office. The only way to control the flow of equipment to your new space and verify that everything got there, is to create an inventory of your office equipment. The best way to do so, is by giving inventory sheets to your employees and having each employee create his/her own inventory list. The team that coordinates the move should create an inventory list of general office equipment that does not belong to a specific person. IT personnel should create an inventory list of their equipment etc.
  3. Have enough packing materials – Packing your office is always time consuming and labor intensive. Make sure that you provide enough packing boxes, tapes, packing paper and bubble wrap to your employees. As a rule of thumb, ten boxes is probably enough per employee. Talk to your moving company before starting to pack and get their advice on how to pack different types of items properly. Make sure that your employees label all of their boxes properly. Labeled boxes are much easier to distribute and unpack in your new office. The following information is usually useful when you move to  anew office: Label the outside of your moving boxes with the following information:  
    1. Your first and last name
    2. Department
    3. Cubicle # or location in new space
    4. General Contents Description
  4. Dispose off unwanted items – You and your employees will find many unwanted, unneeded, expired items that your company do not need. Do not move these items to the new office…. This goes also for outdated IT equipment such as old printers, outdated copier machines or even old telephone systems. Moving is a great opportunity to introduce new and improved technology into your company. After determining the disposable items sell them by contacting companies that specialize in sales of old office equipment, donate them to non profit organization and get a tax exemption for the value of your donation, let employees take unwanted equipment home or send them to a reputable e-Cycling company. Do the same with unwanted office furniture.
  5. Make sure nothing gets left behind or overlooked:
  •  Are all the desks empty?
  • Are all the supply cabinets cleared?
  • Breakable items properly packed?
  •  Desk pads and chair pads labeled?
  • File cabinets cleared?
  •  “Do Not Move” tags placed?
  • Have a set of spare keys available.
  • Wall items taken down?
  •  Make sure that your Internet connection is ready to go and that the phones and fax machines are working. The sooner you get back to work, the sooner you can continue working and making money
  • Liquids drained from equipment?
  • Make sure the electricity works.
  • Make sure the bathrooms work.
  • Computers and other machines disconnected?
  •  File drawers locked?

Professional moving companies such as U.Santini moving and storage have done this before many times and will be able to solve many of your issues before they become problems. Saving you time, money and making sure that you can continue your business uninterrupted and be effective form the first day you start work in your new location.
