1. Box up as many items as possible. Hiring us to make hundreds of trips back and forth with small, loose items is not a good use of our time or, more importantly, your money. It’s also recommended to use similarly sized and weighted boxes as much as possible. This makes stacking for hauling to the truck, and packing into truck much easier and simpler, and therefore faster and cheaper.

2. Remove and box up items from any dresser, desk, file cabinet, wardrobe or armoire. This makes these items easier and safer to move.

3. Dense items like books and papers should be packed in small-sized book boxes. A large box with books my risk tearing apart and be difficult to maneuver.

4. Make sure you have plenty of boxes and tape. You’ll probably need twice as much as you realize. Craigslist is a great place to find free boxes. Or if you opt to purchase them, most places will let you return any leftovers for a refund. Home Depot is a great place to purchase boxes at a far lower price than U-Haul, etc. Another great resource is, for high-quality, re-useable boxes, delivered to you.. We can also generally bring some for you for $3-$15 depending on the size of the box. The $15 boxes are wardrobe boxes for hanging clothes.

5. Labeling a box’s contents makes a mover’s life (and yours!) simpler and helps us take better care of your possessions. Noting particularly if a box is fragile or extremely heavy. Also, unpacking will be significantly more streamlined if your boxes designate their new destination by room so we can take it straight there and you don’t have to face a Himalayan mountain chain of boxes in your living room.

6. Leave yourself enough time for packing. This usually takes far longer than you expect! We’ve had many clients still packing when we arrive, and it can really complicate the logistics of loading items into the truck in an optimal manner. We recommend trying to have it all done the night before to give yourself a cushion.

7. Pack a box of things you will need imminently when you get to your new abode, such as your rental agreement, cleaning supplies, snack, trash bags, toothbrush, etc.

8. If at anytime you realize you have many more boxes or items than you initially thought, it’s good to let us know so we can judge if it makes sense to add a mover or send a larger truck. Having too small of a crew or truck can add time and therefore cost to your move, especially if we have to make two trips. It is also important to let us know of any unusual circumstances or particularly heavy or valuable pieces during the estimate process, not after we have arrived. This allows us to make special arrangements and make sure we are fully equipped for any situation.

9. Take especially expensive or valuable items yourself, if possible. Be sure to pack and pad fragile items adequately. It’s very important to label fragile boxes “FRAGILE” so our movers are aware. We also recommend you group them in a corner, out of the way of moving traffic. Lampshades and globes must be removed and packed. We strongly recommend you move plants yourself. We strongly recommend you pack electronics in their original boxes.

10. We cannot move anything hazardous or explosive (including propane tanks, paint cans, turpentine, gasoline, etc.) We also do not move open or used household cleaning products such as bleach and the like.
