Tips for Moving Day

Remove all items from inside of furniture to be moved (dresser drawers, file cabinet drawers, etc.). Leaving items inside of furniture is dangerous because it makes the furniture heavier and harder to move safely and will cause damage when it jostles around inside.

Label all of your boxes according to the contents inside and which room they will be going into at your new place

Space out your contractor scheduling. Cable, phone and internet installers whose appointments overlap with your movers can result in the crews getting in each other’s way and costing you more money.

Decide beforehand where you want each of your furniture pieces to be placed in your new dwelling.

Plan to be present on moving day. Your moving crew will need to consult with you on a number of things (furniture placement, pre-existing damage found, etc.) both at your old place and your new place throughout the day. 


If you will be packing yourself:


Box up all non-furniture items. Properly close and tape up boxes.  Adequately wrap each item that you place inside of the box. Glass and other fragile materials need extra padding to be safely transported. Only pack boxes to their capacity. Bulging and open boxes are at risk for damage.
