A Few Tips…

We know that moving presents some challenges. We hope you’ll find some of these tips helpful in your upcoming move.

Packing Tips

    • Fill boxes to the top, but don’t overfill boxes then close with packing tape. Improperly filled boxes can result in damage to the contents.
    • Disassemble beds and any other furniture that can be taken apart. Place nuts, bolts, and screws in a labeled zip-lock bag. Place the bag in a safe place where it will be easy to find when the furniture needs to be re-assembled.
    • Don’t water plants for several days before moving them. Wet plants can make a mess on carpets and are difficult to move.
    • Don’t dust fine wood furniture for several days before the move. Furniture polish can soften the wood making it susceptible to damage.
    • Remove the contents of all furniture. The contents can shift during moving, damaging the contents and the furniture.
    • Use stretch wrap to keep doors and drawers closed. Tape can damage the finish on furniture.
