Moving Tips

Get organized early

Avoid leaving anything until the last minute. Unless you have to pack up and leave in a hurry, chances are you have between 30 and 60 days to make a plan and ensure that moving day runs smoothly. Create a countdown list and itemize everything you need to accomplish week by week. 

Figure out your move strategy

How are you going to get from point A to point B on moving day? For shorter moves, you'll either need to assemble some very nice friends with trucks or consider renting a truck for the day. If you have a big family to move or you'll be moving a long distance, you'll want to price out moving companies. 

Keep your movers in the loop

Boxes are one thing, but when you get to the big, heavy stuff, it's important to let your movers know what to expect. "Communicate with LUCKY MOVERS and explain all the requirements and expectations that includes informing us about any overweight items (i.e. a piano or safety locker), access restrictions (small elevator, walk-up only, narrow driveway) and whether you’ll need help with disassembly or assembly of furniture. 

Pick the right transportation

If you're moving a short distance, you may be able to get away with making more than one trip. But if you don't have that luxury, you'll need to make sure you have the right size of truck to cart your belongings in one go. LUCKY MOVERS suggest to use following guidelines when determining the size of your truck:

  • In general, the contents of bachelor and one-bedroom apartments will fit in a small cube truck available available with us

  • Two to three fully furnished bedrooms will require a medium or large truck to ensure your move is completed in one load.

  • The contents of most houses can be moved in the same medium truck with one or two trips.

Label everything! 

Label all sides of the box (avoid the top). Whoever is carrying in your boxes might not make sure all labels are facing one way for your easy retrieval. Try labeling each side in marker so you can easily find what you need in a stack. 

Find out your condo rules

Moving into a condo isn’t as easy as pulling up to the front door and loading your boxes onto an elevator. Be sure to check the moving policy before scheduling your moving day. For example, some condos don’t allow move-ins on Sunday. On most occasions, your condo will ask for a security deposit, depending on your condo rules.
