Helpful Moving Tips

Here are some helpful moving tips we'd like to share with you!

  • When lifting heavy objects, bend your knees and use your legs. Never lift with your back bent.
  • Never use newspaper to wrap your possessions. Newspaper has an open-grain construction and the inks used in printing are not dry. That ink will rub off and stain anything that is wrapped with newspaper.
  • Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one box.
  • Label each box and indicate the following:
  • - Which room it should go in.
    - Whether it is fragile.
    - If it should be loaded last so it will be unloaded first.

  • Double check closets, drawers, shelves, attic and garage to be sure they are empty.
  • Carry important documents, currency and jewelry yourself, or use registered mail.
  • Carry travelers checks for quick, available funds.
