Great moving tips

  • Label each box for the destination room.
  • Pack one room at a time.
  • The heavier the items the smaller the box.
  • Boxes must be taped rather than interlocking the ends together.
  • Pack and TAKE WITH YOU any high-valuable items such as jewelry and heirlooms.
  • Wrap each fragile item separately with newsprint, bubble wrap, sheets, towels, or blankets.
  • Fill any empty spaces in the boxes to avoid movement of the items in the boxes.
  • Pack plates and glass objects in the manner that they are intended to sit normally.
  • Stemware should also be wrapped individually and then placed in the box with the glass sitting on its base.
  • Place all elements of your computer and put into boxes. Use a blanket or other packing materials on the bottom of the box for padding.
  • Clothing and other items should be removed from dresser drawers and packed separately.
  • Your hanging items in your closets can be left for the movers to put into wardrobe boxes.
  • Please have your refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer disconnected prior to the arrival of the movers.
  • We come prepared to disassemble and reassemble beds and mirrors on dressers and such.
  • Please make sure the Flat Screen T.V.’s are disconnected and unmounted.
Please call us with any questions that you might have as you are packing.
