 SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF

Moving is the perfect time to declutter and throw away unused items! Essentially the less items being moved, the less labor costs for you. It is important that all loose items are packed prior to the move day. This reduces unessecary trips for the movers. Take advantage of a new start today!

AVOID MOVING SCAMS

You can never be too careful when trusting your belongings with someone. Some questions you should ask any prospective moving company;

*Are you experienced?
*Are you insured?
*What size crew will you bring? 
*Do you have moving equipment
   (dolly, pads, blankets, etc)


Avoid paying moving companies upfront for labor costs. If the job is not completed within the original estimated time, often the job goes unfinished. Cheap is not always the best when you have to pay a second moving company to finish the job! Find companies who will do it right the FIRST time!
