With more than 50 million Americans that have a reported disability, moving to a new home can pose a unique set of challenges. The tips below should help everyone involved in the process to make the move easier.
 
  1. Discuss your situation and needs with the moving company you choose. It's important for them to know if there is special needs equipment that will have to be moved and if the layout of your home requires extra moving care.
  2. To make an accurate estimate for moving costs, the company that's chosen will have to know these types of details so they have the right number of men and equipment to do your move properly.
  3. Remember to have a packed bag with extra clothing, toiletries and any medication or equipment you may need until you're set up in your new residence
  4. Someone will need to be present and assist when the movers arrive. Make sure all belongings are inventoried. You'll also want to try and leave a clear path for the movers to use.
  5. If furniture layout is important, have someone help you map out where you'll want furniture placed by the movers in your new home. And make sure the movers leave you adequate space for maneuvering.
  6. Be aware of any exposed cables or boxes that may be in the way of your regular walking path after or during the move and take extra care.
  7. Get connected before you move! Having a phone line, electricity and water hook-up already in place when you move will help with communication and everyday needs.
