MOVING TIPS

TIPS TO MAKE LIFE EASIER
  • Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day.
  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to make closets easier to pack. Clothes in drawers can be placed in suitcases.
  • Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy, very fast.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • Never use printed newsprint to wrap fine china.
  • Always stack dishes upwards when packing.
  • Pack important and sentimental documents separately to be easily accessible including: children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information and photo albums.
  • Remember: the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
  • Don’t pack with food or supermarket boxes. You never know what little critter is hiding – or if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  • Don’t use used boxes. You don’t know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  • Never use duct tape – use packing tape.
  • Clearly label all boxes on top and side.
  • Don’t try to get rid of your children’s favorite things before the move – even if it makes it easier. Kids sometimes have a hard time dealing with the change of the move itself.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • As you take apart furniture and other items make sure to tape all parts to the main base.
  • Try to pack all electronic equipment, like stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use bubble wrap when packing these items.
  • Start packing items you will not need ahead of time.
  • By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.
  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  • Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.
  • Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.
  • Always tape boxes. Don’t interlock the tops.
  • Make your reservations for INTEGRITY MOVERS two to four weeks before your day.
  • Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move.
  • Two weeks before the move don’t forget to arrange to transfer school records.
  • Make a “survival closet” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.
  • Remember to get snacks for move day.
  • Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day  — you don’t want to have to pay for cable, phone and utilities when you aren’t even there!
  • Cancel newspapers, cable, pest control, cleaning help, lawn services about a week before the move.
  • Mail in your change of address forms about week before your move date.
  • Clean your stove before you move out.
  • The day before your move, defrost the fridge.
  • Make sure to get enough cash to get you through move day.
  • Take time to say goodbye to friends and neighbors before your busy move day.
  • If you are depending on friends and family to help you move, have a back-up plan if they don’t show.
  • Don’t use boxes without tops. No tops make it impossible to stack properly in the truck.
  • Use custom-designed boxes when packing fine china and clothing.
  • When hiring  INTEGRITY MOVERS, make sure to ask if we are insured and bonded and how we charge.
TRANSFERRING UTILITIES

A hassle-free move is largely a matter of remembering the details, and dealing with utilities well in advance of moving day can help insure anyone’s peace of mind. Nobody, after all, wants to relocate across town or country only to find the phone dead and lights out.

When you transfer utilities, disconnecting services in one location and resuming them in another, there are a few simple rules to follow. While gas, electric, phone and cable companies each have their own lead-time for disconnect/connect notification, a good rule of thumb is to contact their customer service departments at least two weeks prior to the move.
On your day of departure, be sure to keep those lights burning, the heat going and the phone working until you’ve waved the movers goodbye and locked the front door. Arrange to have those same utility services up and running at your new residence at least a day before you move in. A few more points to keep in mind when vacating the premises:

Moving Utilities Tip: Final Reading

Have your utility companies and/or town do a final reading of the gas, electric and water meters. Make sure to get and keep a copy of your bill or report.

Moving Utilities Tip: Forward Your New Address

Supply companies with a forwarding address where they can send final invoices. If you don’t, you could be surprised down the road with unnecessary late fees and unfortunate credit circumstances.

Moving Utilities Tip: Pay the Piper and Get Your Money Back

Pay any overdue bills, but also collect any refunds or utility deposits. Many people forget that they may have served up a substantial chunk of change months and sometimes years back – depending on how long they’ve lived at their most recent address.>

Moving Utilities Tip: Bring Important Numbers and Addresses With You

Take along your local phone directories, in case you need to make contact again with your old neighborhood.

To transfer utility service to a new location is usually a quick and painless procedure.

Finally, water and sewer service can be arranged directly through the appropriate town or city department. The same holds true for garbage pickup and recycling, the cost of which is usually rolled into the property tax bill.

BEFORE & AFTER MOVE-IN CHECKLIST

Please take advantage of our moving tips and moving advice. Print this page and carry it with you before and several days after the move. Moving tips that may seem obvious can be easily over looked. Take our moving advice and utilize this checklist before and after you have moved.

 

  • Take NotesMake a note of your shipment registration number and keep it with you in case you need to call your mover with questions about your shipment.
  • Get the Bed ReadyDesignate one drawer of a dresser for sheets and towels so that you won’t have to rummage through boxes for these essentials the first night in your new home.
  • Don’t forget about the FridgeAfter you’ve thoroughly cleaned and dried the inside of your refrigerator, put a handful of fresh coffee, baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh.
  • Keep the Phone BookTake your current phone book with you. You may need to make calls to residents or businesses back in your former hometown.
  • Pack Heavy – Pack LightPack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.
  • Give out your NumberBefore the van foreman leaves for your destination residence, give him a phone number where you can be reached. It is also a good idea to provide him with an alternate contact in case you can’t be reached.
  • Protect Your MemoriesIf it’s irreplaceable, take it with you in the car (you don’t want regrets later). But if you do decide to pack framed photos or art, place sheets or blankets between them for added protection.
  • Know how to Pack Plates and RecordsPlates and record albums should be packed on end vertically, rather than placed flat and stacked.
  • Remember the Bare NecessitiesToilet paper, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee (and pot), soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are some of the essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and ask your van foreman to load it last so that it will be unloaded first.
  • Unscrew BulbsRemove bulbs before packing your lamps.
  • Tag your ItemsFor your garage sale, tag all items and be prepared to wheel and deal. Garage sale gurus love to haggle.
  • Give the Kids an ExerciseHave children write their names and new address on the cartons from their rooms so they can become familiar with their new street and town.
  • Help your Pet RelaxKeep your pet calm and away from all the activity on moving day by arranging for a friend to watch him at their house.
  • Be Nice to Your PlantsWhen moving plants to your new residence via your car, try not to let foliage rest against the windows, as the leaves will scorch.
  • Take a Break from the ComputerUpon arrival at your new home, let your computer “acclimate” itself to room temperature before plugging it in.
  • Enjoy the HelpLeave the rest to the professionals, sit back and relax, and look forward to the new opportunities, friends and experiences that are part of any move. Be sure to get a good night’s rest before the pickup and delivery days!
PACKING & SURVIVAL GUIDE
  1. Start early. By far the top advice offered. Packing takes longer and is more difficult than most think. By starting to pack early, perhaps doing a room a day, there will not be the frantic rush at the end. You will also be more organized. When you run out of time or are burned out by doing everything at the end, you will throw the unpacked stuff in a box, tape it up and send it on its way.
  2. Think thin. Go through your belongings and decide what you really need and want to keep. Get rid of anything that you haven’t used in a year or so, unless it has sentimental value. Movers charge by weight, so the lighter the load the more money you save. Plan to go through everything at least twice, with a week or more break between. You should find a lot to cull on your first pass. After getting used to the idea, do it again a couple weeks later.
  3. Label everything. Don’t just label each box with the room in which it belongs. Write down the contents. You will be glad you did when you try finding the hair dryer or a specific kitchen utensil. Bonus hint: Don’t overuse the “miscellaneous” label. Otherwise you’ll get to your new home and have a dozen boxes of miscellaneous and almost no idea what’s in them.
  4. One at a time. Stay organized and pack one room fully and then move on to the next. If you don’t, you’ll end up with boxes full of miscellaneous items from several rooms.
  5. Gang box. Put smaller items in small boxes and put small boxes into a bigger box. Small boxes are more easily lost or damaged.
  6. Take it with you. Any personal financial information and important papers should be taken with you or shipped to you by family or a friend after your move-in. Identity theft is one reason, but so is the difficulty in replacing important documents, recreating bank statements or losing passports.
  7. Value valuables. Most moving companies would rather you not ship your highly valuable items, such as jewelry, artwork and collections. Many times expanded moving insurance through the carrier or a third party will be needed.
  8. Essential fact. Always have a box for essentials that you will want or need when everything is delivered to your new home. Remember: Last on, first off. So make sure the well-marked essentials box is the last one loaded onto the truck. Some recommendations: Towels, soap, toilet paper, sheets, coffee maker, drinking cups, eating utensils, pens and notepad.
  9. Inventory. Make a list of every item/box that goes on the moving van and take it with you. Have a family member mark the boxes and items as they come off the truck. This is especially important if your belongings will be transferred from the truck to storage before being delivered. If a box is missing, lost or left behind it could be months before it’s realized. The mover must do the inventory for an interstate move. Note any damage at the time of delivery.
  10. Think outside the box. For items you think will be stored in the attic, garage or closet at your next home, consider getting inexpensive plastic storage bins. The home improvement and general merchandise stores usually carry them. This will save you on buying extra boxes and unpacking them when you get to your new home. Also, for stuffed animals, towels and other soft items, consider using large trash bags, they are much cheaper than moving boxes.
