Top 10 Moving Blogs
The AMSA is the national trade association for the professional moving industry. In addition to providing information on how to find a mover, the AMSA writes a moving blog that discusses moving tips including article titles such as 3 Things to Consider When Moving with School Aged Children. While this isn’t the most active blog out there, it’s got some good information.
Unpakt.com is a comparative pricing and booking website for moving services. They also write a fairly active blog that not only features articles on moving, but they also highlight things to do in different cities such as the Best Restaurants in Burlington, VT, home improvement tips, and other articles.
The Moving Insider Blog is the official blog of U-Haul. In addition to tips on moving, this blog features home improvement ideas, self storage articles, organization how-to’s such as their How to Organize Your Garage and more.
You Move Me is a moving company with locations throughout the U.S. Most of their blog articles relate to moving, but they tackle some interesting topics such as How to Safely Move Your Home Arcade Machine. Other articles feature home improvement, relocation advice, business tips, and other interesting topics.
Moving.com is a moving services finder run by realtor.com, a real estate listings website. Their blog is very active, averaging about 4 posts per week on a range of subjects including moving, home staging and improvement, storage, insurance, truck rental and more. A good recent article was their piece titled 10 Home Improvements to Make Before You Move In.
This is another independent moving service locator site. They post about once a week and feature in-depth articles related to moving. A recent article was How to Protect Floors and Carpets When Moving. Their blog navigation could use improvement though.
Roadway is a New York City Moving Company. Their blog articles are centered around New York for the most part, but they do venture into other topics. A recent article titled How to Move a Couch Through a Small Door is one such example.
HireAHelper is another site that allows you to compare and book local moving services. The blog, of course, provides moving tips for the consumer, but also gives information to the moving service provider. The blog also covers non-moving related subjects such as DIY home projects, family, storage, business tips, and other topics. An example of their blog content would be 6 Reasons Why Planning Your Summer Move in the Winter Saves You Money.
From across the pond comes the blog from CompareMyMove.com. This is yet another service that will provide you with multiple quotes on moving services—albeit in just in the U.K. They do, however, have an active blog covering all sorts of moving-related subjects. A recent blog post titled The Ultimate Guide to Moving Office is a good article on the planning and implementation of an office move.
You have most likely heard of National Van Lines, one of the nation’s leaders in moving. They produce a pretty good blog that really focuses on all things moving. One of their recent articles is 10 Items You Should Consider Leaving Behind When Moving.
There are plenty of other moving blogs out there, but these should give you all the information you need to help guide you through a successful move or relocation.
