Residential Moving Tips
When planning your next move take into consideration what needs to be done at various stages as your moving day approaches. We offer you the following advice to follow to help you make your next move a stress-free event.
Notify doctors, dentists and schools for children.
Notify utilities what date to discontinue services and supply them with your new address.
Do not pack any flammables in boxes such as paint remover, gasoline, liquid fertilizer, bleach or spray cans.
Mark fragile stickers on boxes containing glassware or delicate items.
Make sure all tops of boxes are taped and closed for easy packing so things don’t fall out.
When packing a room avoid mixing things from other rooms in the boxes for easier unpacking.
When packing dishes always stand plates on end and glassware upward.
On moving day ensure all doors and hallways are cleared so movers can have clear pathway to bring furniture out.
Clear out unwanted things –hold garage sale.
Begin packing items not needed well in advance, its nice to jump start the packing endeavor by not leaving everything to the end.
When you get to your new home make sure someone is there to direct to where the furniture goes - this will save a lot of time.
Important papers, jewelry, etc should be packed and kept with you.
And for last tip: The key to a quick fast stress free move is if you are doing some or all the packing yourself, please make sure to boxes are packed and sealed with moving tape, labeled with the contents as well as to which room they will be placed. To also save time keep the boxes gathered by the “room” they will be placed in.
