UNDERSTANDING THE MOVING PROCESS
When is the best time to move?
The busiest times for moving companies are during the summer months, taking place roughly between May 15 – September 15. Near the ends of these months, the volume of shipments is extremely heavy—this tends to be the case for all professional relocation and moving companies.
It’s important to take all factors into consideration when deciding on the best time for you to move. If you have some flexibility in your schedule, providing the moving company with a five-day window for loading your shipment can be greatly beneficial. This will allow the individuals who schedule your drivers and moving crew greater flexibility when scheduling your move. If possible, try to be flexible with your arrival time frame as well—keep in mind that you most likely are not the only shipment the truck is currently moving. Offering a flexible time frame can make a world of difference, and make your entire process of moving much easier.

SMART MOVING & PACKING TIPS TO MAKE MOVING EASY!
Moving day will be here before you know it! The key to having a smooth and successful move is preparation. If you take the time to plan ahead and get organized in advance, you’ll have much less to worry about on the big day.
Not sure where to begin? We’re here to help! We’ve put together a list of our top moving tips and tricks to help get you started. Get ready for the best moving day you’ve ever had!
Moving prep doesn’t start with packing up your things; it starts way before! The first step is to make sure you have enough packing supplies to get you through. There’s nothing worse than having to scramble around on the day before or morning of your move, trying to find extra boxes. That brings us to our first set of tips:
1: DON’T BE AFRAID TO ORDER A LOT OF BOXES BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
You know the old saying—it’s better to be safe than sorry! It’s much easier to deal with extra boxes than it is to find more at the last minute.
2: PACK IN ALL SIZES
When picking out boxes, be sure to get a variety of sizes. Think critically about what you need to pack up. While you might think you need just a bunch of large boxes, you’ll probably need more small and medium sized boxes, since most things pack better in them. Get a few wardrobe boxes, many medium and definitely a lot of small boxes.
Packing is a bit of an artform. It’s much more than just throwing your things in random boxes. If you want to make sure your stuff arrives at your new home safely (and is easy to find!), you want to make sure you pack smartly.
3: DON’T FORGET THE OTHER MOVING SUPPLIES
So you’ve ordered enough boxes, but you also don’t want to run out of tape! Make sure you have more than you think you’ll need, just in case. It’s also smart to purchase a tape gun to help make box assembly a little faster. Make sure you grab packing paper and everything else you’ll need too!
4: KEEP YOUR FRAGILE ITEMS SAFE
Group delicate items together and make sure to label them as fragile. That way your movers will know which boxes need extra care, and can place them in the right spots in the moving truck.
5: PAPER PACKING
When packing those delicate items, use proper packing paper instead of newspaper to avoid smears and stains on your valuables. That way, you won’t have to give everything a scrub down before you put it away at your new home.
OUR BEST KEPT PACKING TIPS FOR MOVING
When you take the time to pack up all your items the smart way, you’ll be making things much easier on yourself when it comes time to unpack in your new home. Follow these packing rules to make sure nothing gets misplaced. Organizing your new home will be easy!
1: LABEL YOUR BOXES
This one is easy: label each box so you know what’s in it, and which room it goes in. This will make unpacking much easier on you.
2: THE GOLDEN RULE
The heavier the item, the smaller the box! It’s much easier to carry heavier items when they’re in smaller boxes. Save the larger boxes for things that are lighter, but hard to carry on their own. Never over-pack a box.
3: ONE BOX, ONE ROOM
Pack the same room in the same box. Don’t mix. This way unpacking is easy.
4: NO PACKING ON MOVING DAY
Take on this busy day with all of your boxes already packed. It’s one less stress. This also includes things like removing all pictures from the walls before moving day.
MOVING TIPS WHEN WORKING WITH MOVERS
Your team of professional movers is there to help. So you can help them out by making sure they have all the information they need. Here are a few things you can do to help your team out on moving day.
1: LAST IN, FIRST OUT
Tell us which boxes you need first at your new home and we’ll load it last on our trucks. That way, you won’t have to go searching for those important items.
2: FINISH PACKING BEFORE MOVING DAY
We repeat: no packing on moving day! Have everything ready to roll when the team shows up.
3: KEEP YOUR MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WITH YOU
Don’t pack cash, jewelry, or prescription medications – keep these with you. You might need to access them on moving day, and it’s nice for the movers if they know they don’t need to worry about keeping track of these small, but very important items.
4: SORT OUT THE DETAILS AHEAD OF TIME
Please know where your movers can park the truck, how they can best access your apartment, and if there are any time limitations on parking or moving hours
5: PREP YOUR FURNITURE
Remove all heavy and breakable items are from dressers and desks, so they’re easier to lift. It also helps to disassemble bedroom sets to save time on moving day.
