General Moving Tips


Here are some helpful residential moving tips:



  • Book your move in cleaning for your NEW place.
  • Book your move out cleaning for your OLD place.


  • Book your moving day with your movers as soon as possible.
  • Don't stock up on groceries right before you move. Now's a perfect time to defrost your freezer.


  • Remove all your drawers from the dressers. You can keep your belongs in the drawers or you can store them in a separate box. Dresser drawers are like their own moving boxes — this will keep you from having to unpack and re-fold their contents. It’ll also make moving the actual dresser much more manageable
  • Keep sandwich bags handy for holding any small parts of things you have to take apart, like curtain rods or mounted flat-screen TVs.

Kitchen and Bathrooms

  • Check your owner's manual for moving large appliances

Toss or Donate Items

  • Go through your belongings a few months in advance and gather items you no longer want. Toss items that need junked and or make ready for donation. Another man's trash is another man's treasure!
  • Clean your closets, the attic and the basement as soon as possible.

Moving Items to Storage

  • IF YOU'RE MOVING ITEMS INTO A STORAGE UNIT - never store boxed food items; belive it or not, small rodents will make their way to your items.

Saving on the Moving Cost

  • Make sure everything is completely packed before the movers show up.
  • If money is tight move your clothes using your own vehicle instead of having the movers move it; or you could purchase clothes boxes or you could place items in your drawers in a suitcase or a large sturdy garbage bag.
  • You can cut down on boxes by making all of your baskets, laundry bins, hampers, and suitcases work in place of boxes.

Change Your Mailing Address

  • Change your address with USPS at least two weeks prior to moving. Don't forget to notify all your creditors, utility bills, magazine and newspaper subscriptions.
  • If you have children, don't forget to arrange for the new school.
  • Remember to schedule disconnections for your old place and connections for your new place.
