Take Advantage of Our Helpful Moving Tips
Here are some helpful hints to make moving day as quick and efficient as possible! Planning is key for performing a fast and efficient move. First and foremost, before you begin packing, sort through your belongings and set aside any personal items and make you feel better before you start packing.
Box and Label
Box everything up room by room, and label as much as possible (i.e.-bedroom 1, 2 or 3, kitchen, living room, etc.). Be sure to mark breakables with a "fragile" marking and keep in a separate area as this will allow us to place your fragile items/boxes in an appropriate space on our trucks.
Apartments and Condos
For apartment and condo moves or in a building with limited parking, please try to reserve space for the trucks in an easily accessible location. Also, in the event that elevators will be used, please reserve time where it can be locked open, which will speed up our pace considerably, saving you time and money!
When moving appliances such as televisions or stereo systems, it is ideal to pack them in the box or packaging the product originally came in. This will guarantee a sure fit and greatly helps in transport. Also, be sure to tie and/or tether any cords.
Please pack lampshades and other fragile items in well-packed boxes. We pack our trucks tightly and although we are extremely careful, fragile items need to be packed accordingly. Also, taping boxes top and bottom greatly increases structural rigidity and ensures safe transport.
Kids and Pets
If you have young children, it is best to make arrangements for them to stay with family or a sitter during the move hours. Also, lock up cats and dogs in a bathroom, crate or yard. As much as we love pets, they just aren’t as helpful as they may think they are when it comes to moving your belongings.
Lastly, we understand that moving is not cheap. If you are on a budget, preparation is key! The better prepared you are for us, the less time it will take. Great ways to save time and money include:
Bagging/boxing all loose items
Having everything ready when we get there
Bringing any small/loose items in a personal vehicle
Reducing clutter prior to the move
These are the necessary steps to take in order to get your move started in the right direction. Lastly, if you can remember to bring a good attitude, we’ll remember to eat our spinach before we show up!! It’s a win-win situation!
