Box everything possible with closed tops or use containers with lids. This makes for easier stacking and better use of truck space. This includes TVs, wall hangings, and lamps to avoid breakage. Please note that breakage from improper packing is not our responsibility. It pays to invest in quality boxes. Avoid flimsy boxes such as Amazon boxes when packing fragile items. Make sure fragile boxes are marked appropriately.
We do not: Disconnect electronics, so please ensure this is done ahead of time including wall-mounted TVs.
Please empty all items out of desks, nightstands, and furniture with doors and drawers. Solid wood dressers can be partially loaded with light items only. All pressboard or IKEA furniture must be emptied. They cannot withstand the weight while moving.
We will: Remove mirrors from dressers, disassemble beds and tables, and reassemble at the new residence.
Most pianos and gun safes can be moved, however we do need advanced notification so the right movers are on the job.
We do not move: Hot tubs, pool tables, and exercise equipment that is not properly broken down.
Placing boxes in common areas will help with the efficiency of the move. Avoid blocking doorways and walkways. Make sure boxes are labeled for rooms in the new residence and make yourself available during the unload to direct movers to those locations. During this time limit visitors that are not there to help. It slows down the movers and in turn costs more money if they have to keep tracking you down or waiting to not interrupt conversations.
This is not necessary but is recommended.
