Moving Tips

  • Have packing supplies on hand
  • Newsprint (unprinted newspaper-printed newspaper can leave ink marks)
  • Bubble wrap or Styrofoam pellets
  • Heavy-duty packing tape (NOT duct or masking tape)
  • Plastic bags and labels (for small parts)
  • Markers for labeling boxes
  • Notebook for box identification log
  • Scissors
  • Boxes — Use strong corrugated boxes with tops that fold flat. You can collect boxes from local stores; however, make sure they are clean and free of pests
  • For a fee, New Generation Moving & Storage can provide packing materials
  • Leave your vacuum out; you may need to do a final vacuuming before leaving. Also, do not pack your cleaning supplies to do a final cleaning after all items are loaded
  • For fragile items, such as dishes, kitchen utensils, pictures, mirrors, lamps, and lampshades, place a layer of packing material (bubble wrap, pellets, etc.) at the bottom of the box. Wrap each item with two layers of newsprint. Place heavier items in the box first; lighter items on top. The wrapping should be firm yet loose enough to cushion all of the items in the box. Don't overcrowd the box, so items are crushed, but don't leave too much extra space in the box, either — less space to move around means less damage. Try to keep the box weight below 50 lbs. Mark the box as "Contents Fragile"
  • You don't need to pack microwaves, lawn tools, mops, brooms, large sports equipment, and bicycles. Microwave turntables should be removed, and the microwave door should be taped shut. Lawn tools, mops, and brooms can be taped together for easy handling
  • To better organize your move, pack and box items room by room, clearly labeling where they belong (example: Kitchen, Living Room, Bedrooms by name — Anna's Room, etc.). This is a time-saver when you move into your new home, as it will allow our movers to put those boxes in the appropriate rooms. It's a good idea to number each box to keep track of how many boxes you have (for example, 1 of 20, 2 of 20, etc.) and keep an identifying log
  • Another handy trick is to label some boxes (for each room) as Unpack First. This will let you know which boxes hold the most important day-to-day necessary items
  • Mark your boxes on the side so when they are stacked, you will be able to see what they contain
  • When making and sealing boxes, be sure to seal every opening tightly. This includes all edges, both the top and especially the bottom
  • Don't pack paints, turpentine, or aerosol cans with your household items. These items are flammable and combustible and should be disposed of properly or given away
  • Refrigerators with icemakers/water dispensers and washers and dryers should be professionally disconnected ahead of time to be sure that there are no leaking seals and that all water is drained
  • Items such as marble or glass tabletops, pool table slate tops, special antiques, chandeliers, or other large, fragile items should be packed by a professional mover or crated prior to moving
  • Leave large rugs to be rolled up by New Generation Moving & Storage.
  • There are some items you should move: Cash, credit cards, securities, jewelry, furs, firearms, personal papers, collectibles, medications, and family heirlooms. New Generation will not knowingly transport high-value items and deny any claims for loss or damage to them if included in your shipment
  • Set your moving date
  • Decide if you're going to pack yourself, or use New Generation Moving & Storage's experienced packing team. If you have New Generation Moving & Storage do the packing, allow them 1-2 days prior to your move date to complete the job
  • Determine what to keep and what to discard. Hold a garage sale or give items to charity
  • Notify the Post Office of your change of address. Visit or get a Change of Address form from your Post Office or mail delivery person
  • Notify your friends, family, creditors, doctors' offices, financial institutions, schools, and magazine subscriptions of your move
  • If you have children, check into schools at your destination for pre-registration procedures, and be sure to transfer their records from current schools
  • Arrange for appliance and other service repairs and installations, both for your present home and your new one
  • Arrange to have utilities and telephones disconnected at your present home and connected at your new home
  • Arrange for newspaper and other delivery services to be discontinued in your old location and started in your new location
  • Transfer prescriptions
  • Drain gasoline and oil from power equipment. Items containing either cannot be moved until completely drained
  • Defrost and dry refrigerator and freezer being moved
  • Start gathering items to take with you during the move
  • Pack your family's immediate needs in a separate box and mark clearly. Items may include a coffee pot, towels, toilet paper, hand soap, bedding, and a few dishes
  • Arrange personal items: pack luggage, valuables, and important paperwork
  • If necessary, make travel arrangements, including hotel reservations and car rental
  • Credit Cards & Cash
  • Luggage
  • House and Car Keys
  • Irreplaceable Items and Valuables (Jewelry, Coins, Stamps, Medications, Etc.)
  • Blankets & Pillows
  • First Aid Kit
  • Photo Identification
  • Car Registration & Proof of Insurance
