Moving Tips

  • Make your reservations for movers 1 to 2 weeks before your move day that is if possible but we will do tight schedule or same day if needed.
  • Don’t use used boxes. You don't know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions. Also most of the time used boxes are already crushing.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to make closets easier to pack
  • Use only small boxes for books
  • Clothes in drawers can be left in drawers, we will move them as is!
  •  Pack important and sentimental documents separately for easy access, including: children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information and photo albums.
  • Clearly label all boxes on the top and side, it is easy then to direct our movers to the correct room for that particular box.
  •  Always use packing tape to secure boxes
  • Leave all furniture staged where it is, we will disarm and rearm anything that needs taking apart
  • Don’t use boxes without tops. No tops make it impossible to stack properly in the truck.
  • When packing boxes, make sure not to leave any room in the box to prevent crushing during the loading/unloading process, if need be put towels or blankets for a space filler.
  • Always pack boxes with the heaviest items on the bottom and lighter items on the top to prevent breakages.
  • Always use dish packs for fine china or stemware with individual cells for maximum protection.
  • Use XL boxes for bedding, pillows exc.
  • De-clutter and donate unwanted items especially the storage room of stuff you haven’t  looked at in years, go through it and simplify. The lighter the load the more money you save .
