Frequently Asked Questions for Moving
When you’re preparing for a move, the number of things to keep track of and organize can be overwhelming, whether you’re moving to a place in town or across the country. Knowing what to expect goes a long way toward ensuring your move goes smoothly and efficiently. Primetime Movers is here with answers to some of the most frequently asked moving questions we’ve received to help ensure your move is a success.
Do I qualify for a moving expense tax deduction?
When you move, you may qualify for a tax deduction as long as you meet certain IRS qualifications. In order to qualify for a tax deduction, your move should be related to your employment. The IRS will also take into account when you moved, as well as the number of hours worked in the last year, both at your old address and your new location. Additionally, you must meet the IRS guidelines for distance moved: Your new place of business must be at least 50 miles from your previous workplace.
What should I look for in a moving company?
When you’re on the hunt for the right moving service for your relocation, it’s essential to choose a reliable, trusted moving company like Primetime Movers. You’ll want a licensed and insured service that offers transparent rates, clear communication, and a long-standing record of great reviews and recommendations.

What are full-service movers?
Hiring a full-service mover is a great way to hand off the biggest aspects of a move to trusted professionals and get the peace of mind you deserve. Primetime Mover’s full service includes careful packing and crating, furniture hauling, truck loading and unloading, equipment rental, and boxes for purchase, taking a load off of your already-long to-do list.
How do I protect my breakable items in a move?
Many of our most sentimental or important items also happen to be the most fragile. To protect your breakable items, invest in bubble wrap, packing paper, and spare cardboard. Don’t overpack your boxes, and label them clearly with the contents of the box, noting that the contents are fragile and to handle with care.

How do I move furniture and oversized items?
Before moving heavy, large items, take a few minutes to protect your floors with moving pads and blankets to protect both your floor and your items from damage. Lessen weight where you can, such as removing drawers from a dresser or the cushions from a couch. Consider renting equipment such as moving dollies to reduce the amount of heavy lifting and strain on your body. However, when you’re moving an entire household of furniture, your best bet is to choose a full-service moving company like Primetime Movers.
