Moving Tips

Here's a few tips to make your move even smoother!


  •  Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials.
  • Wrap your breakables (dishes, glasses, etc.) in clothing to save on bubble wrap.
  • In addition to labeling what’s in your boxes, add what room they’ll be going into, as well. Boxes should be able to close without caving or bulging.
  • Take a picture of how your electronics are connected so you can remember where the wires go.
  • Place a cotton pad into your powder cosmetics to keep them from breaking.
  • Cover the openings of your toiletries with saran wrap, then put the tops back on to prevent leaking.
  • Pack plates vertically.
  • Make sure everything is completely packed before the movers show up.
  • Take photos of your cleaned out residence in order to get your proper deposit back. (Tip: Use a bar of soap to fill your nail holes).
  • If possible, arrive at your new residence before the movers to pre-clean.
  • Defrost your fridge at least 1 day prior to moving. All other appliances should be disconnected prior to the movers arriving.
  • Allow plenty of time to clean out closets, drawers, etc. to dispose of items you do not need.
  • Items valued at more than $100/lb should be disclosed to your Move & Store representative; they will assist in making sure that you are properly insured for your move.
