FAQ MOVING QUESTIONS
When I'm packing can I put anything in the drawers of my dresser or desk?
Anything that's loose must be packed in boxes. This helps to prevent loss or damage while moving. We always recommend that you pack all your items and leave the drawers of dressers and desks empty.
Will the driver load all the boxes that I packed?
Absolutely. As long as the driver feels they are safe for transport we take care of all loading.
Is there a recommended way to pack a waterbed?
Waterbeds are tricky. They need to be drained completely, and if you own a fiber-filled waterbed it needs to be professionally vacuum-drained in advance prior to your moving date.
Can I pack and move my plants?
You should not pack your plants to be transported inside of a moving truck. The stress and heat of being inside the moving trailer usually causes them to die. Also keep in mind that a lot of states will not allow you to enter with any plants, and some will admit plants as long as you have certain conditions are met. Be sure you understand your state's regulations before transporting the plants in your own vehicle.
What should I do with my jewelry and other valuable items?
Any items that have extraordinary value such as jewelry, money, antiques, etc. can be included in your boxes, and we request that you notify your moving team about these items before packing and moving day. If the item(s) are irreplaceable we strongly recommended that you carry them with you, or make alternate arrangements for their transport.
How do I prepare my appliances for moving?
Appliances refrigerators, washers, and dryers must be empty and disconnected. Your washing machine should also have a stabilizer installed. We will take care of stowing the items safely for transport.
