When you are expecting a new bundle of joy in your family, your thoughts may turn to whether or not you have enough room in your current home. Moving to a larger home before the little one is born can give you a head start on setting up your nursery and making room for the baby, but moving while pregnant can also be difficult. Fortunately, many moving companies offer services you can take advantage of, so you can move without having to do the heavy lifting. Here are just some of the moving services you may want to consider.

Packing and Unpacking

You may experience fatigue during your pregnancy, and you may find that you simply don't have the energy to pack before your move. The moving process may also leave you too tired to unpack. Take advantage of your moving company's packing and unpacking services so you don't have to pack everything on your own. You can have the movers pack certain rooms of the house, or you can pay to have them pack everything for you.

Home-Electronics Setup

You may not be able to bend over to reach outlets and connection points for your Internet service, and your television and computer may be too heavy for you to lift while you are pregnant. Instead of struggling to set up your electronics, have your moving company handle this for you. Some movers can mount your television to the wall, set up your home computer, and even install your baby monitor. If you will be placing your TV on a stand, ask the movers to attach an anti-tip device for you, as this will get at least one baby-proofing task out of the way before your little one arrives.

Nursery Furniture Assembly

Why not take the guesswork out of assembling your baby's crib, changing table, and nursery furniture? Have the items shipped to you and leave them in the boxes before your moving day. Arrange for furniture assembly with your moving company, and have the movers put your baby furniture together for you. This helps you to get the nursery set up in advance, and it saves you the frustration that sometimes comes with assembling baby items. Discuss any concerns you have about moving during your pregnancy with your moving company, and work with your movers to find other services that can make your move to a new home go smoothly.
