TV’s: Disconnect aerials and fold up; tape cords of all electrical appliances.
Label Boxes: Keep belongings traveling to the same room together. Mark fragile and special care items.
Organize: Attics, tool sheds, and garages. These areas are very time consuming for the mover (rakes, brooms, shovels – tie or tape together). Drain mowers and gas cans – these items can not be transported if full.
Notify banks and other financial institutions about your move
Dressers, Desks, and End Tables: Should be emptied of anything that could potentially break. Clothing and bedding is alright to leave in dresser. Tape drawers closed.
