Moving Tips

Make a list

Make a to do list and prioritize. Don't forget to keep phone numbers and contact names like realtors, utility companies and moving providers in one place for quick access.



Have plenty of supplies

Get more boxes than you think you need, you can return the excess. Make sure you have enough tape, markers, wrapping paper so you don't have to waste time running out for more. Don't forget the mattress bags to keep mattresses from getting dirty.



Utilize wardrobe boxes

A wardrobe box is like a closet in a box, shoes or pillows and comforters can go in the bottom. It is also a great space for lamps, and other tall decor.

​​

MAKE MOVING EASIER
  • Rent a dolly, we have heavy duty appliance dollys, utility dollies and furniture dollies

  • We also carry “Forklift” forearm straps, great for moving almost anything.

  • Stay hydrated!

  • Find some volunteer helpers, or hire movers

  • Start packing early, this is a great time to declutter

  • UHaul boxes are sized for tetris style stacking, quicker and easier to stack

  • Wardrobe boxes- closet in a box- fill bottom with pillows

  • TV’s are safer in TV boxes, but flat screens will also fit into picture boxes

  • Wrap your fragiles well, use your dish towels, pillow covers or wrapping paper or bubble wrap – dishbarrel boxes are double walled for added protection and have cell kits to keep glasses from breaking    

  • Bubble wrap and moving pads protect furniture and fragiles through the moving process

  • You can also come in and rent blankets, dollies, trucks, trailers and pretty much anything moving and storage related.

  • Use plastic wrap or painters tape to keep drawers and doors closed

  • Use tie straps to secure hide-a-beds so they don’t spring open at the most inopportune moment

  • Tape guns are fun and quick, and if your moving for work save the receipts – they’re a tax deduction

  • Write on the boxes what is in it and which room you want it taken to ie: kitchen, bedroom etc

  • If you’re renting a UHaul, book WAY ahead of time!!

HOW TO PACK A STORAGE UNIT
  • Big things first

  • Some Sofas can go on end

  • Always put something between fabric and the floor or a metal wall

    • Or better yet use a sofa bag

    • Mattresses should be in mattress bags

  • Remove legs from tables to save space

  • Wrap wood veneers in a blanket to protect the finishes from scratches

  • Put heavy boxes on the bottom and lighter stuff on top

  • Use a heavy gauge lock
