Have a move planned soon? Do you have any questions about what to pack, and how to pack it?

We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions regarding moving and packing. Hopefully you’ll find this helpful when planning your move!


Question: What type of boxes do I need?

There’s a variety of boxes you can use to pack our belongings, ranging from small to large, dishpack to mattress cartons, etc. If you’re in need of boxes for your clothing, mattresses, or other items, we can provide you with the right boxes! Be sure to ask about packing services during your complimentary survey and quote for your move.


Question: I have scotch tape. Is that good enough to pack my boxes?

While scotch tape is sufficient enough for sealing your envelopes, it’s highly recommended that you utilize packing tape instead. Scotch tape is easily torn, and will not efficiently seal your boxes, if at all.

Question: What’s the best way to differentiate my boxes from one another?

You can simply write on each box as to what the contents are, or where each box should go. Another thing to consider is using colored-tape or stickers on your boxes to inform your movers of where each box belongs. This allows for the crew to accurately and efficiently move your inventory into your new house.


Question: What if I have pets?

Pets, while incredible companions, can disrupt movers during a relocation. If you’re unable to reach out to someone to take care of your pets while a full-service mover is at your residence, have them placed in secure location, away from the movers. For example: if the crew is on the first floor, perhaps consider having your dogs or cats relax in a bedroom upstairs.
