Moving Tips

Quick Tip Planner -- Here are some things to think about as you prepare for a move:

  • All boxes should be sealed, not folded shut, use poly tape, not duct tape.

  • Any breakable items should be removed from dresser drawers. For long distance moves, it is best if everything is removed. Desk drawers should be emptied, and at least the top 3 drawers should be emptied on 4 drawer filing cabinets.

  • Lamp shades must be removed and boxed, and light bulbs should also be removed from lamps. Ceramic lamps should be carefully boxed.

  • Remove the glass plate from your microwave and pack it in a safe secure manner.

  • Bicycle chains should be wrapped in plastic or cloth.

  • Loose cushions should be bagged, or boxed for long distance moves.

  • BBQ grills should be scrubbed clean, and wrapped in plastic.

  • Dispose of all flammables such as cleaning fluids, aerosol cans, fireworks and matches. Drain the fuel from your lawn mowers, mopeds, motorcycles, go karts and other machinery. We cannot handle gas tanks. Discard partly used containers of any substance that may leak. Empty the water from your steam iron.
