PACKING AND MOVING ADVICE
JUST A FEW SUGGESTIONS TO HELP YOU SAVE TIME AND MONEY ON YOUR NEXT MOVE.
BE PREPARED FOR YOUR MOVE
- HAVE ALL BOXES PACKED AND ALL ITEMS READY TO BE MOVED +
-IF YOU DON'T PACK BEFORE YOUR MOVE WE HAVE TO SPEND TIME PACKING AND IN SOME CASES MIGHT NOT NEED TO SCHEDULE ANOTHER DAY TO ACTUALLY MOVE YOU.
- PACK CAREFULLY AND CONSCIENTIOUSLY. PACK
HEAVIER ITEMS LIKE BOOKS IN SMALL BOXES, AND
LIGHTER ITEMS LIKE SWEATERS IN LARGE BOXES.
- REMOVE LAMP SHADES AND LIGHT BULBS AND
PACK THEM IN BOXES.
- ALTHOUGH WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO
DISASSEMBLE ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE ITEMS, SUCH AS BEDS AND DESKS, ETC
YOU CAN SAVE MONEY BY DOING THIS YOURSELF.
-TRY AND PACK HEAVIER ITEMS SUCH AS BOOKS IN SMALLER BOXES AS THEY MAY BREAK THE BOX IF YOU FOR EXAMPLE FILL A WARDROBE BOX WITH BOOKS.
-make sure all pets are out of the way while we love animals they can get in the way and could even be hurt WHILE were moving YOU IF they are underfoot.
- PLEASE MAKE LARGE FURNITURE ITEMS, INCLUDING BEDS,
ACCESSIBLE. DO NOT BURY THEM IN BOXES.
-Make sure you DON'T pack medications you need to take REGULARLY as it can take A LOT of time to finds that specific box when its on the truck.
-you can save yourself some time and money by making sure all cars are out of the driveway and we have a place to park quickly and easily.
- try not to book your flight the same day as your move as this can add A LOT of stress and make things logistically complicated.
- EMPTY AND PACK THE CONTENTS OF VERY LARGE ITEMS SUCH
AS FOUR DRAWER FILE CABINETS AND DRESSERS. THE LIGHTER
AND EASIER IT IS TO MOVE, THE FASTER THE JOB WILL GO.
-Make sure all boxes are completely full half full boxes can COLLAPSE when you stack things on top of them.
-If its really cold or hot outside wait to turn on electronics and appliances until they have gotten used to the temperature in your new location, when in doubt 12 hours is a good wait time.
-We bring a shovel and ice melt but you can save time and money by making sure they all walkways are shoveled and deiced.
-we have heard from clients that youtube videos on moving and packing have helped them prepare.
- DISCONNECT AND EMPTY ANY LARGE APPLIANCES YOU
WANT US TO TAKE. WE DO NOT DISCONNECT OR RECONNECT
ANY WATER OR GAS LINES ON APPLIANCES, BUT WE ARE
MORE THAN HAPPY TO SHOW YOU HOW.
- PLEASE PACK ANY PLUNGERS AND TOILET BRUSHES IN
BOXES OR BAGS. IT'S EASIER THAN OUR GUYS HAVING TO GO WASH THEIR HANDS AFTER THEY PACK IT.
-label your boxes on the top not the sides.
