Household Move Planning Tips
Packing Tips – While we offer full packing services to go with your move, here is some advice on how to do your own packing. Many have chosen to do all or some of their own packing to help lower the cost of their move.
What NOT to Pack – Before you start packing, you need to know what items are “non-allowable” (prohibited) which means they cannot be shipped because they are a possible hazard or are perishable. There are also some items that are generally recommended you take with you on moving day such as prescription medications. Knowing what NOT to pack is perhaps one of the most important of all household move planning tips.
