Troy’s Moving and Packing Tips

Whether you are planning to relocate cross-country or across the globe, the key to success is not only organization, but a great moving company as well. 

STEP 1: ORGANIZE all of your belongings before packing anything.

STEP 2: Take a photo of each group of items being packed into a particular box.

STEP 3: Create a list of those items.  Take a photo of this list and then attach the list to each box. Then mark the box for the room it should be placed in when it arrives at your new destination, i.e. kitchen or master bedroom. 

STEP 4: Wrap all furniture and breakables such as plates and glass wear carefully (if you don’t feel comfortable doing this, then let the professionals handle it!). Make sure all fragile items are marked.

STEP 5: Hire a reputable moving company that has a strong relationship with an NVOCC- this is especially true if you are relocating over seas.

And always, always make sure anyone you hire is fully insured!
