Over the course of our 35 years in business, it’s safe to say we’ve learned a thing or two about packing and the proper preparation it can take to complete an efficient and stress-free home move.

Being prepared makes all the difference– specifically by being packed and ready to go which will make your moving day experience go so much smoother.

Don’t believe us? Hear it right from our moving experts!

“Have all of your loose items boxed up and packed away, and also make sure to label the boxes. Make sure to have a game plan for unpacking the boxes, too.” – Shawn – Operations Manager – Lorain-Medina, Ohio

“With your packed boxes, take them all into the garage. It’s going to save a lot of time for us with the move and will also save you some money on your bill at the end of the move.” Anthony – Team Lead – Lincoln, Nebraska

The help doesn’t stop there, either. Check out these helpful packing tips that are sure to make your moving experience stress-free!

Plan ahead

There’s no substitute for proper planning. If you’re able to get a jump on the packing process prior to moving day, it will make your whole moving experience better.

Create a plan, go room-by-room, and take on a little bit each day as you work toward moving day.

Keep items protected

Using the proper packing supplies when moving your items makes a huge difference in keeping your belongings protected during the moving process. Moving boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper ensure items that are easily breakable, or electronics, stay safe.

Here’s a good reminder: the heavier the item you are moving, the smaller the box should be. This will prevent the bottom of the box from breaking out when moving.

Organize by room

As you’re packing up room-by-room through your house, be sure to keep boxes from the same room together and label them. This will make it easier to determine what is what, and will also let the movers know how they should pack them onto the truck.

Label as much as you can

It may seem obvious, but you wouldn’t believe the difference that labeling can make in the chaos of a home move. Accurately label each box while packing so everyone involved knows what is in the box and where it should go.

  1. I am so dissatisfied with Two Men and. a Truck. They lost my bed frame and damaged the refrigerator door. I called them last week we’re suppose to get to me never did. I would not recommend them to anyone. As for review I give them a zero. I tipped them good only to find out they lost bed frame and damaged refrigerator door.
