You Move Me: Smart moving tips image

Smart tips to help your move go smoothly.

1: Label your boxes

Our boxes come pre-printed with room labels right on them. Find out more about our boxes.

2: The Golden Rule

The heavier the item, the smaller the box! Never over-pack a box.

3: One box, one room

Pack the same room in the same box. Don't mix. This way unpacking is easy.

4: Last in, first out

Tell us which boxes you need first at your new home and we'll load it last on our trucks.

5: Paper packing

Use packing paper instead of newspaper to avoid smears and stains on your valuables. Find out more about our supplies.

6: No packing on moving day

Take on this busy day with all of your boxes already packed. It's one less stress.

7: Don't be afraid to order a lot of boxes because you never know

Plus, we'll take the unused ones back. Give us a call and order your boxes! 1.800.926.3900

8: Pack in all sizes

When picking out boxes, be sure to get a variety of sizes. A few wardrobe boxes, many medium and definitely a lot of small boxes.
