- Smartly pack your items. Begin with items you rarely use and finish up with essentials. It helps when unpacking and arranging your house.
- Use trash bags, laundry bins and suitcases to pack clothes since it reduces the number of boxes used.
- When labeling the boxes, avoid the top since they can’t be identified in a stack. Use labels that display the items contained and the rooms they belong to.
- Move valuable items in your car since movers are only limited to a liability of $0.60 a pound.
- Ensure you have a copy of the movers’ inventory before they leave. It can be used in case there are items missing on arrival.
