Moving Tips in Medford from Wicked Smart Movers

Preparing For Your Move

Every good move requires preparation.  Please take a few minutes to read my recommendations and you will find that your move will go much smoother.  This is by no means a comprehensive list.  If you have a large move, it makes sense to do a little online research for tips and tricks for packing.

Have boxes, marking pen, bubble wrap, newspaper, packing tape and tissue on hand

Pack boxes so they are full, if boxes are heavy but still have space, fill the top part with stuffed animals, towels or other light but bulky items

Use strong boxes and containers that can be secured tightly 

Purchase special boxes for dishes, wardrobe and other special items if possible

Pack audio-video equipment in original boxes.  Label cables and tighten transit screws.  If removing screws, tape them to the objects they are removed from

Pack books tightly on end in small boxes

Having rope on hand to tie down items in the truck or to the roof of an SUV is not always necessary but can often be helpful

Tip your mover for a job well done.  We have no mandatory tipping, however let everyday etiquette be your guide

Avoid loading more than 40 pounds into one box

Label each box and indicate the following (a) Which room (b) If Fragile (c) If it should be loaded last to be unloaded first

Cushion contents with packing material such as bubble wrap, newspaper or tissue.  Save room by using towels and blankets to wrap fragile items

Rent packing blankets from your rental truck company or have a good supply of old blankets on hand to prevent wood and other furniture from being scuffed or damaged.  We want to take excellent care of your stuff,  so help us help you

When possible offer your mover a cold beverage.  No matter how hard the move, when you show your mover you care, they are willing to work that much harder for you
