Moving Tips

Make a list

Go through every room of your house and decide what you’d like to keep and what you can get rid of. Think about whether any items will require special packing or extra insurance coverage.



Choose your Moving company and confirm the arrangements

Select a company and get written confirmation of your moving date, costs, and other details.

​

Have plenty of supplies

We have the experience and skills necessary to tackle just about every type of job that comes our way. With www.jfkmoving.com, clients know exactly what to expect - professionalism, efficiency and exceptional results.



Utilize wardrobe boxes

Order boxes and other supplies such as tape, Bubble Wrap, and permanent markers. Don’t forget to order specialty containers, such as dish barrels or wardrobe boxes.



Take measurements

Check room dimensions at your new home, if possible, and make sure larger pieces of furniture will fit through the door.



Color coordinate

Clearly label and number each box with its contents and the room it’s destined for. This will help you to keep an inventory of your belongings. Pack and label “essentials” boxes of items you’ll need right away.

​

Separate valuables

Add expensive items such as jewelry and important files to a safe box that you’ll personally transport to your new home. Make sure to put the mover’s estimate in this box. You’ll need it for reference on moving day.

​

Double-check

Reconfirm the moving company’s arrival time and other specifics and make sure you have prepared exact, written directions to your new home for the staff. Include contact information, such as your cell phone number.

​

Verify

Make sure that the moving truck that shows up is from the company you hired: The US. DOT number painted on its side should match the number on the estimate you were given. Additionally, you can check if the moving truck has the company's branding, or vehicle number that was listed in your confirmation. Scams are not unheard-of.

​

Take inventory

Before the Movers leave your place, please sign the bill of lading/inventory list and keep a copy.
