Moving Tips

Professionals have seen every situation and can anticipate many pitfalls a homeowner might not see.  We use this experience and wisdom to guide our customers throughout the moving process.  We have a hand-curated timeline of moving tips ranging from -6 weeks out to +2 weeks in.  Please make sure to ask for your moving tips timeline and checklist when you schedule your move!

MAKE A LIST

You'll need to create several lists to be fast and efficient.  We can provide you a list of things to do 2 months out, a month out, a week or two before, the day of the move, and the week or two after arriving at your new residence.  Just be sure to ask for the moving tips checklist when you get your free and easy estimate. 

SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF

Filter out old, unused, and unwanted furnishings and belongings.  By eliminating these items BEFORE the move, you save time and stress on packing, unpacking and moving your possessions.  Charities, churches, non profits, and thrift stores may be willing to help by removing unwanted material for a tax write off bonus!

GET STURDY, UNIFORM PACKING SUPPLIES

 When it comes to packing supplies, it's no time to try and cut corners.  The cost of a single broken item could equal the cost of ALL your packing supplies combined.  With this in mind, thorough, patient packing using the proper tools for the job is critical.  Contact us early for guidance and purchase the specialty boxes you may need.  We carry wardrobe boxes, dish packs, picture boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, tape, labels, and more.  

PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF

 While we are prepared to handle any circumstances, you can get more bang for your buck by packing the basics your self.  Outside of fragile, expensive, and unusual items, most household goods can be packed quickly and easily with a little time.  You can get packing tips, tricks, and materials whenever you call for your quick and easy estimate.
