Can I use plastic totes for moving?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:10-05:00
Plastic totes can be useful for moving as they are usually more stable and easily stack-able when compared to traditional cardboard boxes. Be careful when packing plastic totes as too much weight can make these totes hard to move and susceptible to damage.

Any self-assembly dressers, nightstands, and other other furniture items with drawers should be completely emptied and removed from the item prior to moving. These furniture items are usually made of particleboard and are rather easy to break. If your dresser appears more durable, all items except clothing should be removed. Excessive clothing should also be removed to ensure the integrity of the drawer.
Will movers move things not in boxes?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:11-05:00
Large furniture items, appliances, and other household goods that cannot fit in a box should be padded and wrapped by your moving company for transport. As a rule of thumb, anything that can fit in a box should be packed in one to ensure proper protection and loading. However, there are items that may be difficult or tricky to pack. Consult with your moving team beforehand to make sure they have the proper supplies in order to transport any tricky items.
What will Movers not take?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:11-05:00
Some items your movers may not take include any hazardous material or waste. Examples include gasoline, propane, fertilizer, oils, pool cleaners, and other chemicals. Your movers may also not be able to take anything liquid or that contains dirt, such as water dispensers or live plants, as they pose an extra liability for other materials in the trailer during transport if they were to spill.
Do movers disassemble beds?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:12-05:00
Yes, your moving company should have all tools necessary for disassembly of beds and other furniture items. Items such as your bed frame, tables, mirrors, doors, or couch legs may need to be removed or disassembled in order to move safely. Washer, dryers, and refrigerators may also require basic tools to disconnect and reconnect. Your moving team should have all of these tools on their truck on the day of your move.
What is a full service move?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:12-05:00
A full service move is a move in which your moving company will pack, label, load, unload, and unpack all of your belongings while also transporting them between locations. In a normal move you will be responsible for the packing and unpacking while your movers will only handle the loading, transport, and unloading of your items.
How long before moving Should you start packing?Kip Madden2021-09-20T14:45:13-05:00
