Please See Our Tips To Making Your Move a Little Easier!


Recycling Your Items

Moving is a great time to recycle unused items. Consignment shops and online auction sites such as eBay are good places to get some extra cash for items you no longer use. You may prefer to donate your unwanted items at a donation center such as Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. Your donations help others in need, and are tax deductible.


Finding Boxes

Grocery stores, print shops, and recycling centers are great places to get boxes for your move. Ask the manager to save their boxes for a couple of days. Managers usually don’t like to keep boxes for longer than couple of days because they take up too much space. Be sure to ask what day and time is best to pick the boxes up.


Boxing Your Items

Box up all loose items. Boxed items are easier to carry than several loose items. Boxing your items is also a great way to keep organized. In addition, boxes can be easily stacked or moved on a dolly. Don’t bother putting your smaller boxes into larger boxes. Be sure all of your boxes have lids. Tape the lids closed to make sure the items placed in the boxes remain in the boxes.


Marking Your Boxes

Mark your boxes with up arrows so your boxes don’t get turned upside down during the move. Write “Fragile” on the outside of boxes containing glass or other breakable items. This will ensure that nothing is stacked on top of your fragile items. On the outside of the box, write the room that the contents came from to help you organize your items when you arrive at your destination.


Storage Tubs

Plastic storage tubs are the best for moving your items. Not only are they more rigid than cardboard boxes, but they often have handles, which make them easier to carry. Because you will likely reuse your storage tubs, mark them by writing on masking tape adhered to the tubs.


Visualize Your New Space

Try to visualize where large or heavy items will be placed in your new location. This will avoid the labor-intensive task of moving bulky items a second time. It will also allow the moving crew to keep moving paths open by strategically placing heavier items.


Keep Your Neighbors Informed

Let your neighbors know the date of your move. If your neighbors know when you are moving, they can make arrangements to keep vehicles or other belongings out of the way. In some instances, access to a neighboring property may be required for a move. It is best that the neighbor be told in advance that a moving crew may be on their property.


Talk To Your Kids

Moving day can be kind of hectic for little ones. Itís a good idea to give them a little pep talk the night before the move. This will help them prepare for the change, while getting them used to the idea of people removing items from their home. Letting them pack a box with their most prized possessions often helps to relieve some of their uneasiness. Our friendly staff is sympathetic to your childrenís concerns and will do their best to make them comfortable during this process.


Keep Your Pets Safe

If you have pets, keep them crated or see if someone can watch them during the move. Pets can become nervous when a moving crew enters the residence. Itís easy for pets to escape during a move because doors are often left open.


Receiving Your Mail

Contact the post office with your change of address. The post office requires that you fill out a change of address form to ensure that mail sent to your old address is delivered to your new address. You can pick up a change of address form at your local post office, or you can file your change of address online at the United States Postal Service website.
