The Quality Shows in Every Move We Make®

Want to move?

Here are some tips that will help you on your next move!

  • If you are able to move any time of the year, do not wait until summer. The summer months are the "peak" moving season. Also, the first and last days of the month are extra busy.
  • Specify the exact date you want to move and when it will be convenient for an agent to visually survey your household and prepare an estimate.
  • Before the agent arrives, tour your house from attic to basement. Decide what to move and what to discard. Make sure you show the agent everything that is to be moved.
  • If you plan to do the packing yourself, start collecting suitable containers and packing material.
  • Set goals and deadlines to ensure that all packing is completed by moving day.
  • Don't forget to notify the post office that you will be moving and what your new address will be. A temporary forwarding address may be necessary if you don't have a permanent one by the time you move.
  • If you are being relocated at your company's request, find out what portion of your moving expenses that the company will pay. If your company has a written moving policy, ask for a copy.
  • Dispose of flammable objects such as fireworks, cleaning fluids, matches, and aerosol cans. Drain fuel from your power mower and other machinery, and discard partly used cans of ink, paint, bleach, or any substance that may leak. Be sure the water is emptied from your steam iron.
  • Obtain a written appraisal of antique items to verify the value. Avoid waxing or oiling wooden antiques (and fine wood furniture) before moving, because some products may soften the wood, making it vulnerable to imprinting from furniture pads.
  • Unplug all television sets 24 hours in advance of a move, if possible, so that they will be at room temperature on moving day. Moving a TV set in which heat is still retained could cause internal damage.
