Keep your moving cost down

How can I keep costs down during my move?

A great way to keep costs down is to be prepared!

If you are prepared for when the movers arrive, this will cut down on additional labor time.

Moving boxes is one of the most time consuming areas of a move, yet are some of the lightest things to move.

Always use moving grade boxes, try to use the same size boxes and be sure they are taped up and labeled correctly for the movers. Stack them up four boxes high, so the movers can just place them on the dolly and go. 

Also, while we’re happy to do so, disassembling furniture takes up time as well. Where possible, disassemble any beds, desks, etc to cut down on time. Keep in mind we do not reassemble cribs or bunk beds. 

Anything that you can do yourself or anything that can help the movers move faster will cut down on your cost.
