When to start packing
When packing use moving boxes
Dressers and drawers
Be sure to empty dressers and drawers to all furniture andleave the drawers in all furniture. The movers will decide at the time of move if it is necessary to remove them.
Unwanted items and furniture
It is best to get rid of all unwanted items and furniture prior to moving day. We do not offer a haul off service for these items, however; we can move them out to the curb for trash pick-up.
If you have appliances that need to be disconnected, please make sure this is done prior to the move. We do not disconnect water, gas and electrical connections.
Buildings with an elevator
In most cases, parking permits are required, however; we know the city very well and can advise on when they will be needed. Click here for permits.
