The Best Moving Tips You Need To Know

Moving to a new home marks the start of an exhilarating new chapter, yet the process itself demands thoughtful preparation and diligent attention to detail.

Regardless of your previous moving experiences, this moving tips list offers indispensable suggestions to streamline your upcoming relocation, making it easier and more organized.  With some planning and these helpful tips, your upcoming move doesn’t have to be stressful—it can be an opportunity for positive changes and new beginnings.

Start packing ahead of time before the move, beginning with out-of-season items. Next, pack things used infrequently. Save until the last minute those items you might need up until moving day.

When packing your belongings, use paper without ink, as newspaper ink can easily rub off and may damage items such as fine china.

Remember, it is against federal law for your mover to transport firearms, explosives, compressed gas, flammables, aerosols, liquor, and cleaning fluids. So, please do not pack them.

Label each and every carton. Use a black marker, clearly marking room and contents. Indicate “FRAGILE” on dedicates “THIS END UP” where appropriate.

Limit cartons to a maximum weight of 50 pounds.

Pack similar items together. For example, don't pack a delicate china figurine in the same carton with cast iron frying pans.

As you done pack each carton, list the contents on the side of it (for easy viewing while stacked). Also, it will be good idea if you number the cartons as well.

Pre-move preparation is required for many major appliances. Set an appointment with a service technician to prepare your major appliances for shipment or have your agent send someone out who is authorized to perform this service.

When it comes to tipping, we offer the following advice: tip only when the move is over. Remember, moving is hard work. If your crew worked hard, was careful, and was courteous with your belongings, consider tipping them. The amount is up to you.
