Moving can be stressful but we make it easy and effortless for you with these tips to keep in mind before packing and moving
1. Make a List
Make a list of all items you will be moving prior to your move. Keep a copy of all relevant paperwork (such as the estimate, confirmation, etc.) with you during the entire process of your move in case you need to refer to it.
2. Say good bye to unused stuffs
Eliminate what you don’t want or need before you move. If you haven’t used it in over a year and it isn't a valuable family heirloom, you probably don’t need it. Donate it to a charity, sell it in a garage sale or get rid of it. There is little sense in paying us to move items that you don’t want and won’t use.
3. Get Sturdy, uniform packing supplies
Use appropriate cartons when packing. This will go a long way towards ensuring your goods arrive safely. Please note that plastic trash bags are not appropriate cartons under any circumstances. Mark your boxes clearly with the name of the room in which you would like each carton placed, and when packing, note the contents on the box and designate which room in the new location the box need to go to.
4. Pack the basics yourself
Carry your valuables and necessary medications with you. The mover is not responsible for these items. Place all items not to be packed or taken by the mover in a safe and separate place, such as an empty closet or spare bathroom. Tell the movers that this area is off-limits because it contains items you wish to move yourself. Be sure that all the packers and movers know which items are to be packed and moved, and which items are not.
