Provide Accurate and Detailed Information

Providing accurate and detailed information about your moving needs is the key to a smooth moving day. When soliciting an estimate, give the most detailed information possible to our movers so that we can give you an exact idea of the equipment you will need and schedule sufficient time and personnel to make your move a success.

As a general rule, don’t underestimate the number of articles you need to move. Possessions often accumulate over time, leaving the owner with more to move than they had during previous moves.

Preparing your Boxes

Take time to properly calculate the number of boxes that you think you’ll need for your move and let us know in advance so that we can send the correct number to your home with enough time to allow you to pack before your moving day.

  • Easy-to-forget moving reminders
  • *Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move.

  • *Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day. When you call, be sure to ask movers if they are insured, and ask for a copy of the policy. Also, ask what kind of equipment is supplied.

  • *Submit your change of address form about a week before your move date.

  • *Schedule disconnect times for cable, phone, and utilities about a week before your move day, and then make sure utilities in your new home will be turned on by the time you move in.

  • *Cancel newspapers, cable, pest control, cleaning help, and lawn services about a week before you move.

  • *Wait to pack your cleaning supplies (broom, dust cloth, mop, etc.) until you’ve done your last cleanup—especially if you have a security deposit. Don’t forget to clean your stove and defrost the fridge!

  • *Don’t leave the hardware to your furniture at your old place. When you take something apart, put all the little parts and screws in a bag. Then tape the bag to the furniture, so you won’t have to track down the parts.

  • *Before moving large appliances, check your owner’s manual for special instructions. Items like washers and dryers often need special handling.

  • *Don’t forget to take art off your walls, disconnect electronics, or pack the items in your yard.

  • *Dispose of any items that moving companies are not allowed to transport by law. These items include gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition, and explosives.

  • *Have an essentials grab bag. Have your toothbrush, chargers, the essentials you might need for the next 72 hours readily available. It’s not an emergency situation, but if you treat it as if it were one, it makes the whole move a lot easier.
