About Insurance Coverage and Full Packing Services
A licensed small mover is by state law, required to carry the minimum amount of insurance coverage. Of course, it is better to have full coverage on your belongings as they’re in the care of the moving company. Ask the mover what is entailed in their insurance policy and if you can purchase additional insurance coverage to ensure full protection on the value of your things.
When you purchase full packing services, the movers will package away all your things for you. The professionals will come in weeks before the scheduled moving day and use the best packaging supplies to properly pack away everything, getting it prepared and ready to go. A list of inventory will be made and all boxes will be labeled. You should also create your own inventory list to compare with that of the mover’s.

Get Ready for Moving Day!
Have all your apartment’s items ready to go when the movers arrive. Never continue packing things away as the movers arrive to load it on the truck. All boxes should have clear labeling so the movers know where to place the boxes once they arrive at their new home.
Make sure all hallways, stairways and elevators are free of clutter and prepared for use by the movers. You don’t want to make it any harder on them to stay safe while loading the truck. They’ll need room to maneuver and to bring in any moving equipment they may need such as a loading dolly or other type of hand operated lift.
In most cases, it is best to also prepare your neighbors to let them know the movers will arrive on the day scheduled. This will give them a head’s up so that they know what to expect and can manage to stay out of the way of the movers. Make sure you also remind the apartment manager days before the movers arrive.
