Moving Tips and FAQs

Tips on PreparingTips on Preparing

Now is the perfect time to sort through your belongings, declutter, donate, sell or dispose of items you no longer need.  This can take extra stress out of your move and reduce what you will need to have moved to your new home.

Fridges and freezers need to be cleaned out and defrosted 24 hours prior to your moving day, so you may need to consider consuming all perishables before hand. Washing machines and dishwashers also need to be dry, disconnected and have no water left in their hose.

You can always email or call us with any questions, issues or information you think may be important before moving day comes. Leaving it until the last minute could disrupt your moving experience.

If you are dismantling furniture yourself, make sure you have snap lock bags ready and remember to tape the bags of bolts, screws and the instruction sheets to the item so they don’t get lost.

Take advantage of our in-home visitation service so we can accurately prepare the best resources and pricing for your move.
