We do have new boxes available. Call for price list.
Do not forget before you leave the old house to do a walk though with the movers to make sure everything is loaded on the truck and out of the home. Walk around the out side for any out door furniture or garden hoses to be loaded.
If everything is on the moving truck, you are ready to leave the keys and garage door remotes for the new owners.
Call the friends and family, to help out while the movers are there. Its always helpful to have an extra set of hands for last minute cleaning and helping tell the movers were to place the furniture.
It's also a good idea to have easy finger foods, like sandwiches or pizza for easy clean up on the move.
Get an early start. Go ahead and get your cup of coffee in. The movers are on the way and ready for a full day to tackle your moving job.
If you are moving long distance make sure you have your gps, motel reservations ready and waiting. And make absolutely sure that you have your cell phone(s) and tablet charged and ready to go. Also be sure to exchange phone numbers with your self and the driver of your moving truck. The drivers are usually the job supervisor.
Make sure you are available or have someone available for any questions the movers may have.

You may need to open a new account or safe deposit box at the same time. To have your valuable papers, jewelry or sentimental items already moved and in a safe place so that there is no chance for them to get lost. That is one less worry that you have already taking care of and out of the way prior to moving day.
If you are hiring us to do your packing don't worry we will have everything took care of for you.
But if you are choosing to do your own packing, do not wait until the last minute. Pack a little each day of items you don't use on a daily basis. This will reduce stress and will help make an overwhelming job a synch. When packing do not pack items such medications (meds, important paper work, keys, and contracts need to stay in your possession at all times) These items if packed on a truck, you will not have access until the job is finished.
