Residential Moving Tips

We want to make sure that your move is successful, so here are a few moving tips to make your life easier during the moving process. For a complete list of residential moving tips, talk to your mover.

Packing Tips:

  • Before you start packing, determine what you want to move, discard or sell. Make a few extra bucks and spend less on moving when you eliminate the clutter.
  • Use professional-grade boxes when you move. You want your belongings safe, so insure their trip with heavy-duty moving boxes and industry-strength packing tape.

Tips for Moving Day:

  • Write "Open first" on the items you'll need right away at your destination.
  • Help your residential movers stay safe by clearing sidewalks and driveways of snow, ice or other debris.
  • Make sure you know which items can and cannot be put on the moving truck (e.g. flammables, cleaning supplies or high-value items).

Additional Moving Tips:

  • Update your address with any carriers you currently use (e.g. phone, cable and Internet services).
  • Help your movers find items in need of transport by keeping boxes out of crawl spaces or confined areas in your home.
  • Talk to American Van & Storage about any belongings that may have to go through a special packing process (e.g. waterbeds, grandfather clocks or pool tables).
