2019-11-04T08:14:52-07:00

When moving, it can sometimes be tempting to attempt to pick up extremely heavy items by yourself. However, this can often lead to broken items and/or serious injury (both to your body and your pride). Always err on the side of safety, whether that means using a dolly or asking another person for help. After [...]

Don’t Break a Leg!

2019-10-28T06:29:12-07:00

When loading up and packing your moving truck, it is normal (and usually wise) to stack boxes and other items on top of tables or other flat-topped pieces of furniture. However, if these legs are long and skinny, too much weight on top of the furniture can cause the legs to snap. To avoid this, [...]

When moving into a new home, make sure that all your larger pieces of furniture will fit where you want them to go. Check the doorways and staircases to make sure they are all wide and tall enough and check any sharp turns to be sure that the furniture will be able to make it [...]

Don’t forget the straps!

2019-11-15T04:45:16-07:00

When loading up a moving truck, it is essential to use ratchet straps to keep your things from sliding around inside the truck. Typically, if you are loading a full 26-foot truck, you should be safe with 8-10 ratchet straps. However, if you are worried that you will not have enough straps, go ahead and [...]

DRINK WATER!

2019-10-07T06:51:54-07:00

This may appear to be an obvious tip, but it is one that can be easily forgotten during a move. Think beforehand how you will have access to water for yourself and for those helping you. Decide if you will buy packs of bottled water or if you will carry around your own refillable bottle. [...]

Don’t waste your pillows and cushions!

2019-11-15T04:50:10-07:00

When packing certain items, such as lampstands, that leave a lot of empty room in a box, use your pillows and cushions to fill the extra space. This will keep the items from being shaken around in the box during your move while also giving you a convenient and useful place to pack your extra [...]

Packing Books

2019-09-16T08:32:07-07:00

Always pack books inside of a small box. Yes, you can fit more books into a bigger box…but it will very quickly become too heavy to pick up. When the time comes to actually move your boxes of books, you will be incredibly grateful that you went with the small boxes over the larger ones. [...]

When disassembling a bed for your move, take all the hardware from the bed (e.g. screws, nuts, bolts, etc.), put them in a plastic bag, and then shrink wrap the bag with the hardware around a piece of your bed. This will keep the hardware from being misplaced and/or lost during the move, making the [...]
