Moving Tips


Moving Tips

1. De-clutter and purge unwanted items before hand.

2. Pack an overnight bag with items you may need immediate access to such as: extra clothing, medicine, keys or wallet. This helps prevent these important items from being packed away in a box during the packing process.

3. If you are packing yourself, follow these helpful XD Moving tips below

1. De-clutter and purge unwanted items before hand.

2. Pack as much or as little as you prefer. With advanced notice, XD Moving Solutions can help with the whole job, or any part of the packing job.

3. Two good sources for boxes are Uhaul and Home Depot. Both provide sturdy boxes for reasonable cost.

4. Pack heavier items in smaller boxes to prevent from overloading. Click here for an XD Moving Solutions Packing Guide.

5. When packing plates, it is best to lay the plates vertically rather than horizontally. This distributes the weight evenly in the box. If packed horizontally, all the weight from the top plates rests on the bottom plate, increasing the likelihood of the bottom plates to break.

6. If you plan to pack yourself, remember to make sure to pad fragile items securely to prevent breakage. Packing paper, bubble wrap or even extra towels/sheets are great padding.

7. Clearly mark all packed boxes with the contents and room location for your new home. Examples: Kitchen-Coffee Pot; Master Bathroom-Toilet paper/Bath mats; Jane’s Bedroom-Stuffed animals

8. Make sure that all boxes are closed properly and with tape. Open top boxes take up more space and prevent proper stacking/loading on the truck and may result in additional fees. Boxes that are not closed and taped up properly, may crush causing damage to your items

9. Never pack flammable items or restricted items. Ask XD Moving Solutions for a list of restricted items.

10. If you are doing your own packing, make sure everything is ready to go before moving day to save time and eliminate cost.

Packing Tips

4. If you have items going to multiple destinations (storage & home), mark each item with colored tape to designate the items location. This will help save time during the loading/unloading process and prevent additional fees from being incurred. Examples: Green tape-House; Blue tape-Storage

5. Make note of any extra-fragile items needing special attention.

6. Mark appropriately any items you do not want moved.

7. Notify XD Moving Solutions if you add or subtract items from your planned move, if there are any changes in dates or extra stops required to pick up or deliver goods.

8. Be sure to supply your XD Moving Solutions mover with a contact phone number where you can be reached, should you get separated or delayed.

9. Be on hand to accept your delivery. If you cannot be there personally, be sure you authorize an adult to be your representative to accept your delivery and pay the charges for you.
