Additional packing advice:

  • The number one way to help save money is to do the packing yourself. When you contact us please ask about our pricing on packing materials.
  • Your basement, attic, or garage are perfect places to start packing.
  • Make sure all box seams (especially the bottom seams) are sealed securely with packing tape to ensure safe handling.
  • Fill in empty spaces within the boxes with packing paper to prevent shifting and potential damage to your items.
  • Make sure you pack your belongings properly and label each box clearly. Each box should have a description of the contents and the name of the room to which the contents belong.
  • Pack books and other heavy objects in small boxes so that they are easier to handle.
  • Disassemble large furniture or other awkwardly shaped items so that they will fit easily through the door and take up less space in the moving truck.
  • Squat (don't bend over) and use your legs to lift any heavy objects.
