Moving Tips

 

 

Pre-Packing Checklist

Stock up on packing supplies. Moving boxes, bubble wrap, packing foam, packing tape, plastic totes – anything and everything you can gather ahead of time will help when it’s time to begin packing.

The First Night Box Checklist

Surviving the first night in your new home can be difficult without the right supplies. We recommend you pack a “first night” box with items you’ll need for basic unpacking, cleaning, eating and hygiene.

Unpacking/Destination Checklist

After surviving the tedium of prepping, packing, moving out and traveling – move-in day will feel like a breeze. Approach the day with a plan in-hand and you won’t have a problem settling in to your new home.

Pack Separately Checklist

It is better to be safe than sorry when packing your personal valuables. Items that require additional security or special access are better kept in your personal vehicle during a move.

Packing 101

Start with out-of-season items. Next, pack things used infrequently. Leave until last the things you'll need until moving day.

Small boxes are ideal for heavy or fragile items that must be packed on their own to ensure ease of handling.

Moving Boxes and Supplies

Moving into a new home involves much more than just relocating your belongings. You need to re-establish your local support system, set up new accounts and notify government agencies of your new address.
