  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  • As most moves are charged on an hourly rate, dismantling beds/trampolines gym sets etc will save time therefore money.
  • Put all boxes in 1 room.
  • Dont block walkways doorways etc the less clutter the quicker the removalists will be.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to make closets easier to pack. Clothes in drawers can be placed in suitcases.
  • Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy, very fast.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • Never use printed newsprint to wrap fine china.
  • Always stack dishes upwards when packing.
  • Pack important and sentimental documents separately to be easily accessible including: children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information and photo albums.
  • Don’t use used boxes. You don’t know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  • Never use duct tape – use packing tape.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • Try to pack all electronic equipment, like stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use bubble wrap when packing these items. Start packing items you will not need ahead of time.
  • By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.
  • Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.
  • Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.
  • Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your day.
  • Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move.
  • Two weeks before the move don’t forget to arrange to transfer school records.
  • Make a “survival closet” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.
  • Remember to get snacks for move day.
  • Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day — you don’t want to have to pay for cable, phone and utilities when you aren’t even there!
  • Cancel newspapers, cable, pest control, cleaning help, lawn services about a week before the move.
  • Mail in your change of address forms about week before your move date.
