Accolade Moving & Storage offers all relocation services at affordable rates

Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Dispose, sell or donate unwanted articles prior to moving to streamline packing.
  • Loosely wrap glass, stoneware and all fragile items using two layers of plain paper or cloth (Clean socks work well!).
  • Wrapping items in newsprint may leave stains on certain items, so it’s best to use newsprint for things that can be wiped off easily, like cutlery or certain ceramics.
  • Pack all loose items in boxes, not bags.
  • Tape boxes across tops and edges and label them clearly according to room placement at your new location. This will make unpacking that much easier!
  • Label and place screws and small parts from disassembled furniture and equipment in small clear plastic bags. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to assemble furniture only to realize you’re missing half the screws, so make sure you think ahead.
  • Transport jewelry, money and valuables in your own vehicle. For your more precious (and fragile) possessions, Accolade Moving & Storage Company recommends keeping them with you at all times during the move.
  • Organize and label electronics and cables before your move for easy set up at your new location. Cables have a tendency to become extremely tangled, so taking steps to minimize this will save you some grief when it comes time to unpack.
  • Pack food securely in sealed bags for extra protection.
  • Pack and clearly mark a box for ESSENTIALS that you will need immediately when you reach your new location

 

Important Reminders

  • Notify allĀ  government agencies, banks, creditors, gas, water, telephone, cable and internet providers of your move. Doing this prior to your next billing date will prevent important documents from being lost in the mail, as well as minimizing the disruption in your services.
  • Defrost and clean fridge(s) prior to moving day, and minimize the amount of perishable food you pack, as it can attract a whole zoo of creatures you likely want to avoid in your new home.
  • Empty fuel from lawnmower, power tools, kerosene lamps and barbecue.
  • Plan the placement of furniture or equipment in your new location so our movers can accommodate you.

 

Never Pack Flammables Such As:

  • Paint/ Thinner
  • Aerosol cans
  • Cleaning fluid
  • Propane tanks
  • Corrosive liquids
