Moving Tips / Denver Moving
In the interest of time and saving you money, If you follow these helpful tips, you will remove a considerable amount of stress from your Denver move as well as the amount of time needed for us to load up your belongings and get you moved to your new location.
- Unhook all appliances being moved and secure hoses
- Disassemble headboards and footboards where possible and store screws, bolts, nuts, washers in a safe and secure place. (We can do this if you don’t have time or the tools).
- Remove lampshades from any lamps you want us to move
- If possible, move your own pictures, plants, herbicides, fuels, etc.
- Glass or glass top tables need to be crated.
- Remove shelves from bookcases if they are removable.
- Make sure all boxes that you pack are securely taped shut. Remember, we are not responsible for any carton/box we do not pack.
- Label all boxes clearly so we know what room to place it in at the destination.
- When at the destination, have someone stand right outside the truck to direct the movers as to where the items should be placed in the house, garage, or yard.
- Clean out desks, night stands, and dressers if possible. This minimizes the risk of something getting broken because of too much weight.
- If the chest or dresser is not too heavy and is made of solid wood, it will be OK to leave clothes in them. Remember, particle board or press board furniture will not hold up to heavy weight and is not covered by standard insurance.
- If possible, please move all jewelry, checks, bank account information, valuable coins, important papers, keys, etc. yourself.
