Pack in Advance 

If you have things that can be stored in boxes for awhile without any need for them on a daily basis, spread out the workload by packing early. When it comes to the actual packing process, it is important you have the right packing materials. Our moving box program can help outfit you with the boxes and supplies you may need to pack up your home. On the day of the move we will bring bubble wrap, stretch wrap as well as offer free use to wardrobe boxes. We also have dish boxes and more for purchase.

Keep Track of Essentials

It is important to keep track of parts and tools you will need right away once arriving to your home. Will you have some furniture that needs to be disassembled and reassembled for the move such as your bed? If so, make sure you know where all of the tools and hardware is in order to set things up where they belong. It also helps to label the bag so that you know which piece of furniture its contents belong to, just in case it falls off.

Plan Easy Meals

Moving day is a very exciting experience and while you’ll likely have a huge to-do list, the first thing that should be on your agenda is breakfast. With such a full day ahead, it’s easy to forget about breakfast while relocating, and sometimes even for a few days once you’ve moved into your new home.

Take some time to plan ahead and have easy breakfast items ready.  In fact, put together some items that are easy to carry along and eat on-the-go. You should even consider having protein bars, chips, and other snacks on hand to eat during the move. While our professionals take care of all the heavy lifting, take a minute to make sure everyone in your family has something to eat.

Hold On to Important Documents

On moving day, you’re going to be busy. Avoid any potential moments of stress by keeping your valuables and important documents like your Social Security Card, passports, bank cards and jewelry on you at all times.
