Professional Movers’ Tips

  • Get rid of items you don’t need or haven’t used in a year before movers arrive. Don’t move stuff you don’t want anymore!
  • Get rid of hazardous materials.
  • Do not move jewelry, money, coin collections, etc. Keep these items in your possession.
  • Confirms dates and services to be performed with your move coordinator. Notify carrier as soon as you know dates, preferably 2-3 weeks prior to move.
  • Make a list of items in offsite storage/office and lab locations. List boxes as well as furniture and garage items.
  • Make a list from attic, crawl spaces, closets and any other storage areas not readily available for view by the moving consultant.
  • Make a list of items that will need special handling. This includes glass table tops, marble tops, taxidermy and heavy mirrors or pictures that may need wood crating.
  • Check the access for loading and unloading at each stop for the move. Can an 18-wheel tractor trailer moving van legally and logistically park within 75 feet of your front door? If it cannot, long carry and perhaps even shuttle charges (loading and unloading a smaller truck) will be incurred. Are there elevators or stairs? These can add additional costs at both origin and destination.
  • Do not have the phone disconnected at origin until after the house is empty. Communication is important!
  • Provide phone numbers at destination including motels, new home, cell phone and work.

    ~ Susan Guzzo, Toronto
  • Thank you very much for contacting me about my move. Due to the urgency of planning my move, I did happen to already book with someone else who I happened to connect with a bit sooner than you. But I am really impressed with the many great quotes from high-quality movers that I received so quickly via your service, so I want you to know that I will certainly be keeping you in mind for any future moving needs for myself or my friends.
    With thanks and best regards,
