How to plan your move
Here are some useful tips from us to you, to help you plan your move. If you have any further questions or concerns, give us a call.
When Selecting a Mover
- Make sure the company you select is fully licensed. You can verify a licensed company on the California PUC website.
- The California PUC movers handbook should be provided at time of estimate free of charge.
- If an on site estimate is being done, feel free to ask the company for a not to exceed price contract.
- Make sure the company is fully insured. They should be able to provide proof of insurance if asked.
For Your Move
- Try and secure a couple of parking spaces in front of both locations for the move.
- If you have elevators in your building, make sure to reserve them for moving day. Sole access to the elevators will ensure an expedient and efficient move.
- Confine your pet to an out-of-the-way room to help keep them from being scared or running off. You might consider boarding them at a local kennel until you are settled.
- Fragile boxes should be clearly labeled and pointed out to the movers.

This includes important documents, purse/wallet, checkbooks, passports, heirlooms, jewelry, cell phone(s), chargers, medications and toiletries. Pack this box and keep it with you.
- Everything else in the home (minus furniture, of course) needs to boxed and clearly labeled. Please label the box with it’s contents and where it belongs in your new destination.
