Packing tips

Keep the weight of your boxes reasonable.

Pack heavy and dense objects into small boxes and lighter items in large boxes.

When packing boxes, make sure the top and bottom lids are secure.

Tape your moving boxes well. Use a couple of pieces of tape to close the bottom and top seams, then use tape to wrap the box around.

Pack breakables with packing paper, not bubble wrap.

Pack as far in advance as possible. Start by packing off-season items and the items you won't miss.

Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.

Keep the essentials with you. On the night before the move, puck everyday essentials into a suitcase or bag you'll keep with you in the car/ truck.

Moving tips

What is so challenging about moving? Just take a box and put all of your belongings inside! But not everything is so simple. There are a lot of underwater rocks, and we want to let you know about them. We shared some tips that will make your move comfortable and efficient.

Book your moving date 3-4 weeks in advance.

Think twice before throwing away unnecessary things. It’s better to weigh all pros and cons in order to avoid regrets.

We do not legally transport hazardous or flammable materials. Please dispose them well in advance.

Pack the box of essentials and make sure it is put in the truck last.

Pack the attic, toilet, and basement last.

Don't forget to buy snacks or make sandwiches for the day you move.

A week before the day of moving, stop paying for the phone, utilities, TV.

Cancel newspapers, cleaning help, lawn services, etc. the week before you move.

Clean the stove before moving out.

Defrost the refrigerator.

    Emir and Tilek just helped me move into my new home in Oakland and they were very nice guys. They were fast, very careful with all my things, and very respectful. Would highly recommend you request these gentlemen if you need assistance moving. They made this transition very easy.
