How to prepare for your move

  • Plan your move

Get some cardboard, wide tape, black and red markers and unprinted newspaper (which allows you to wrap the objects without dirtying them). Prioritize boxes over bags. Check if it is necessary to book the elevator and parking for the day of the move.

  • Packing tips

Do not choose very large boxes: they are difficult to move once full. Fill them well to prevent objects from shifting. Affix a FRAGILE label on the boxes that require it. Write in marker on each box the destination room (e.g. kitchen, garage, master bedroom) as well as its general contents (e.g. rotisserie, fondue dish, sporting goods, etc.)

  • The day before

Dismantle the furniture if your mover does not. Attach mats. Unplug the washing machine and empty the hose. Unplug electronic devices (TVs, computers, etc.) and make plans to reconnect them, if necessary. Group the objects that you are going to move yourself. Fill a small suitcase with the essentials for transition days.

  • On moving day

Unplug the refrigerator. Check the destination address with the movers. As the rooms empty out, make sure nothing is left and close the door so you don’t have to come back.

  • Once at destination

Reserve a parking space for the truck. Supervise the work of the movers and include on the invoice the items damaged during the move.
