Preparation Tips

• It is crucial to have all your belongings packed up and ready when the movers show up. • Separate items that you don’t want to be packed so the movers clearly know what’s going on the truck and what isn’t. • We do not take TVs off walls or hook them up. • The more you can pack, the quicker the move will be. • Box everything you can, as boxes are easier to move and pack. • Don’t overpack boxes, doing so can lead to boxes collapsing. • Please tape the top of every box and label clearly where you want it to be placed. • Please empty out any dressers, armoires, cabinets. • All electronics must be unhooked and packed into boxes excluding TVs. • We do not move liquids, chemicals, gasoline, paint, oil, ammunition.
