How to pack up your house

Whether you're working with our packers or want to pack up everything on your own, we'll share some packing tips with you to make life easy.

Pack items first that you don't use often, list contents and room on the outside of the moving box, clearly mark "Fragile" on the outside of cartons, write "Open First" on boxes containing essential items such as cooking utensils and toiletries, and use professional packing tape to safely secure your belongings.

Before moving day checklist

Once you've contacted our team to visit your home and visually assess its contents, we'll provide you with an affordable estimate of your moving costs. You'll then have the moving process set in motion. Next you'll want to notify the following that you will be moving:
  • Post office
  • Utilities (electric, gas, water, phone, fuel)
  • Professional services (doctors, dentist, accountant, lawyer, insurance agency, schools)
  • Personal accounts (pharmacy, dry cleaner, bank, health club)
  • Governmental offices (tax bureaus, social security admin, department of motor vehicles)
  • Family and friends
You'll want to dispose or give away any non-allowables (items that are flammable, corrosive or explosive) as we cannot transport these items. Plants are unlikely to survive due to lack of water and lights, so you should give them to friends, relatives or donate them to organizations.

Moving day tips

Just before the big day, you'll want to work with our packers to point out any extra-fragile items that require special attention and care. It's a good idea to identify and mark any items you do not want packed or moved, as well as the boxes you'll want to open first when the van arrives at your new destination. If you're packing on your own, make sure everything is ready to go the day before our movers arrive.

You'll want to unplug all electronic appliances 24 hours in advance of moving day, except plasma televisions because you'll want those to be at room temperature on moving day.

Finally, on moving day, your only responsibility will be to see that all of your goods are completely loaded into the truck(s) from your home. No heavy lifting at all!

Make a final tour of the house, check and sign the inventory, and you're all set. Simply let the van operator know how you can be reached so you can be contacted, if necessary, during the move.

Leave the lifting and moving to us, and let your new adventure begin! Call today to make your upcoming move a breeze!
