Moving Tips to Take the Stress Out of Moving

Make moving day go easy for your family and movers. The following moving tips are suprisingly effective.
BEFORE MOVING DAY, PLAN TO
  • Give away or sell unwanted goods.
  • Transport flammables in your car or get rid of them.
  • Empty lawnmower and gas powered fuel tanks.
  • Donate unwanted clothes.
  • Change your address with the post office.
  • Check your new house to be sure appliances fit and have the correct outlets.
  • Arrange to forward mail.
  • Set date for disconnection and connection of utilities and cable.
  • Have carpets cleaned.
  • Keep valuables and passports and personal documents with you if possible.
  • Be sure your new home will be ready or arrange short term storage with All Star.

MOVING TIPS FOR THE KITCHEN

  • Pack dishes in DISHPACK boxes. They are thicker cardboard and will hold up better in a load.
  • If you are not confident packing glassware then ask All Star about packing your breakables.
  • Unplug appliances and secure the cords for easier and quicker transport.
  • Disconnect water to refrigerators and disconnect washer/dryer; there is usually an additional charge for this.

MOVING TIPS FOR THE GARAGE AND OUTSIDE

  • Put yard tools and handled tools in a garbage can or a wardrobe box.
  • Mark your totes well so that there will be no confusion when putting things away.
  • Remove loose parts from shop tools and secure cords for transport.
  • Empty drawers unless the chest has wheels or is hand-carried.
  • Safely dispose of paints or flammables. Remove propane tanks from BBQ's.
  • Keep paint at the old home that matches existing walls; the new owners will appreciate that.
  • Stop watering plants at least on week before move.
  • Disassemble outdoor swings and furniture to save time on moving day or your movers will be happy to do it.

MOVING TIPS FOR BEDROOMS

  • Disassemble bed frames and mirrors from dressers if you want to save money. This service is included on long distance moves but is hourly on local moves.
  • Disassemble TV and stereo systems and mark the wires for easier reconnect. We do not hook up stereo systems.
  • Leave clothing in dresser drawers but remove valuable and breakables.
  • Mark boxes according to room so the movers will know where to place them in new home.
  • Check new home for placement of furniture to save time on delivery.
  • If moving onto new hardwood floors, have felt pads ready to place on furniture feet.
  • Decide which clothes to box and which to keep hanging.
  • Ask All Star to provide wardrobes for your hanging clothes. Each wardrobe holds about 2ft of hanging clothes.
