Moving Tips

Before you schedule a move estimate we recommend you survey your own home. Check all the rooms from attic to basement, and determine what will be moved, and what will be sold, donated or discarded. We often survey homes where the list of unknowns is way above average. For example, major appliances are often unknown if they are part of the current real estate contract or if you might be ready to purchase your new set. Simply put, the more you know about what is clearly moving the more accurate our estimate will be.


  • Dressers and chest of drawers can be left full with clothing. We ask however you remove all breakables, and liquids such as perfume and personal products.

  • Plants can be moved on local moves and we suggest they are not to be watered for at least two days before your move. Small plants should be placed in open top box.

  • Get rid of or plan on moving any flammable products - paint, solvents, gas cylinders and cleaning supplies.

  • Gas should be kept to a minimum in mowers, clippers, trimmers, blowers, compressors, edger’s, etc.

  • Clothes - do you need them all? Charity shops may want them.

  • Separate books - disposable, family reading, valuable.

  • Arrange to have mail forwarded, or held at the post office. click here

  • Agree upon a termination date for electricity, gas, oil, telephone and other main suppliers.

  • If you have children, keep their favorite toys or stuffed animals handy to travel with you.

  • All personal documentation - marriage/birth certificates, driver’s licenses, passports, identifications, should be moved by you.

  • Start running down your supply on perishables, freezer stocks.

  • Arrange your finances - close or transfer bank accounts, savings accounts and so on, if necessary


Particle board/ Press Board/ Fiberboard furniture: Due to the inherent nature of this type of furniture, they cannot usually be disassembled and reassembled. This is due to the pins and/or screws that hold the furniture together. Over time they loosen and will not hold the joints together properly. These types of furniture items are usually assemble at home products straight out of a box. They are shipped in that way because of the high risk in being pre built. For the same reason, particle board, press board or fiberboard furniture usually cannot be transported safely while assembled and the customer must understand the risk involved moving such pieces.
