*** Helpful Moving Tips ***

  • Make your moving arrangements as far ahead of your moving date as possible.
  • If you plan to do your own packing, start well in advance of your moving date. This avoids the last minute “packing rush”.
  • Extremely fragile items such as glass, mirrors and pictures should be professionally packed or crated.
  • Open Liquids shouldn’t be shipped as they can leak and cause damage to your shipment.
  • Pack heavy items in small boxes (example: books in 2 cubic foot boxes, pots & small appliances in 4 cubic boxes.)
  • If possible, pack stereos, TV’s, and computers in their original boxes with their original packing material.
  • Mark each box with an inventory list and destination room. This way your movers will know where each box belongs at your new home. (example: master bedroom, kitchen, basement, garage, etc.)
  • Always stack dishes upward when packing.
  • Set up a specific area in your home for all items not to be MOVED and inform your movers of this area.
  • Arrange to have all your major appliances disconnected and serviced before your moving date.
  • Defrost your refrigerator and freezer the day before moving (freezers must be empty at time of loading.)
  • Dispose of all flammables such as matches, aerosols, fuels and propane tanks before your moving date.
  • It is not necessary to empty dresser drawers, but remove all fragile items and liquids.
  • Be sure to pack important and memorable documents in a separate box for example; health insurance, family records, passports, photo albums and jewelry for easy accessibility.
  • Contact your Moving Consultant 2 to 3 days prior to your move to confirm and review all final details of your move.
  • Review the list of your goods (Inventory Form) with your movers and their condition at the time of loading.
  • Complete a walk through of your home to ensure all items have been removed (check closets, cupboards, behind doors, etc.)
  • Before your movers completes loading, give him/her a phone number where you can be reached once you leave.
  • Check your Inventory Forms with the movers as your goods are unloaded. Make sure any missing items are identified and removed from the truck before crew depart.
  • Keep a copy of your contract (Bill of Lading), as most moves are tax deductible. Ask your Moving Consultant for more information.
