Money saving tips for Moving

If you are looking for ways to keep the hours, and therefore cost down, here are some tips:

  1. Strip and take apart your beds, and remove dresser mirrors.
  2. Make sure that every small item is packed in a box or container, including lampshades.
  3. Leave soft, non-breakable, non paper items in dresser, and cabinet drawers. If drawer isn’t full, fill it with packing paper.
  4. Move all of your boxes to the garage or main floor.
  5. Stay by the door during the unload, to effectively direct the crew.

Replacement value protection – added peace of mind

We do also offer additional replacement coverage for your belongs, on the move, and while in storage. We always recommend that you first check with your home insurance provider, as they often do have policies that cover local moving and storage.

Our optional replacement value protection is based on $10 of coverage per pound of the shipment. For example, if your shipment weighs 2000lbs, the minimum Replacement Value Protection would be $20,000. You are free to increase the coverage as you see fit, but must purchase at least the minimum.
