General Moving Tips

We get a lot of questions about how our clients should help prepare for their move. Here are some general moving tips to get you streamlined, and organized before your move.

  1. Unscrew Bulbs: Remove bulbs before packing your lamps.
  2. The fridge: After you've thoroughly cleaned and dried the inside of your refrigerator, put a handful of baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh and reduce moisture.
  3. Packing: Pack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes. You can use your sheets/blankets, and towels as added packing protection for fragile items or kitchenware
  4. Sentimental/ Luxury Items: If it's irreplaceable, please take it with you in the car.
  5. Packing Plates: Plates and record albums should be packed on end vertically, rather than placed flat and stacked.
  6. Label your Boxes/Items: Be sure to label the contents in boxes and where their final destination is. This will help your movers to be more efficient and save you money.
