Tips on Moving

1. Donate, sell or dispose of unwanted items that you don't have a real need for.

2. Consider what the weather will be like, and plan your move around the best season if possible. If you do have to move during the rainy season, plan for it accordingly.

3. Make a list of all your current utilities that are billed to your current address, and then notify each of a move out date to close each account and then also open up new accounts for your new utilities at the next address.

4. When you sign your lease, keep a copy of it. Sometimes you may need it to show others such as banks or credit companies.

5. As much as possible, use boxes that are the same size, so that you can stack more in the truck without leaving air space.

6. All boxes should be taped on both sides and labeled with contents.

7. Anything you intend to put into storage should be loaded last, so that it can be dropped off at your storage unit first, or vice versa.

8. Boxes can be used for sculptures, art work, or important belongings.

9. Use protective wrap for all glasswares, plates, bowls, etc.

10. If you are moving to or from an apartment or condominium complex, obtain special parking passes for a moving truck before hand from landlord(s).

11. If you are moving to or from downtown Seattle, obtain special parking permits from the city in advance for parking a moving truck and taking up multiple parking spaces.

12. Your mover will remove doors if you have any bulky furniture that may be too big for some doorways.

13. If budget is a concern, ask Lake Union Movers if there is anything that can be done to save on the cost of moving!

14. If you need to save time on moving, hire Lake Union Movers to do the packing and unpacking for you.

15. If you need assistance in figuring out any of the above steps, feel free to call for a free in-home consultation to determine the most efficient ways to accomplish your move. Call or Text 206-659-3874. (Joe Click here and get a ball park price today
