At Marathon Moving Services, our goal is to make your move as stress free and easy as it should be. Here are some moving tips you can take note of for your next move.
Avoid using small tedious boxes and try to use full size moving boxes.
Have all boxes closed and sealed on the top and bottom with tape to prevent items from falling out.
Wrap pictures and have them boxed and sealed. Put them together by size.
Have TVs and monitors packed prior to the movers arriving. We are not liable to any damages to TVs that are not boxed.
Be sure to have lampshades packed together in a sealed box. They are too fragile to move alone.
Books should be packed tightly in small sealed boxes due to their weight.
Clothing may be left in small dresser drawers. Medium/Large dressers need to be emptied. Hanging clothes should be boxed in wardrobe boxes. We cannot move clothes unless they are boxed or bagged.
Remove pendulums from clocks or have them secured tightly to the base of the clock. Wrap and pack small clocks in boxes.
Have any refrigerators and freezers you plan to move empty (food, shelves, pans, trays) when movers arrive.
Have washers and dryers disconnected. We do not assemble/disassemble any appliances. Pack any loose parts separately in a place you will remember.
Have all fragile articles packed and secured separately in durable boxes.
Drain all oils and gas from lawn mowers and any other gas powered tools. We will not move flammable aerosol cans, paints, thinners, guns, ammunition or any hazardous materials.
You should keep all valuables (jewelry, watches, money, expensive artwork, legal documents, etc.) in your immediate possession & should be moved by the owner.
We can’t move any pictures, table lamps, computers, VCRs, stereo equipment or other fragile items unless they are packed properly in boxes.
If you are capable and willing, have beds, tables and etc disassembled prior to the movers arriving. This will save a good amount of time they would be spending using tools.
Make a designated area for items and furniture that are not to be moved.
Try to make sure everything that can fit in a box is boxed. When movers are only dealing with furniture and boxes it makes the move much more smooth!
