How long before my move should I start preparing?
This depends on how much you’re moving and whether or not you’re planning on doing all the packing and unpacking.
If you’re doing the packing for yourself, you should start preparing around the same time as when you booked your moving service. It will take time for you to get all the packing materials and pack all of your belongings, especially if you’re working during this time and packing a large house.
If your moving company is providing a packing and crating service for you, then you should prepare for the move about a week before it is scheduled to happen. The best way to prepare is to clean out your home and get rid of everything you don’t want or need. Empty your closets, drawers, and cabinets. If there’s time, hold a garage sale and donate everything that doesn’t sell, or just donate everything from the start. After you clean out your closets, you should clean your home. This will make moving as easy as possible.
Can I leave clothing in my dresser drawers?
In most cases, yes, you can leave your belongings in your dresser drawers. Our moving experts can handle most dressers when moving. This will save you time and packing materials.
However, not all dressers are the same, and some will be easier to move when full than others. If you do not empty your drawers, you run the risk of damaging your belongings. Consider these points when deciding whether or not to empty your drawers:
- The sturdiness of the dresser. If your dresser is built well, it should hold up during the move. Try this test: lift your dresser. If it feels flimsy or the drawers start sliding out, empty the drawers.
- The contents. Do you have jewelry, money, fragile items, or valuable papers in your desk? If so, these need to be taken out immediately and packed separately.
- The legs. Take a good look at the legs on your dresser. Are they screwed tightly enough? Do they look like they might fall off during the move? If so, empty the dresser ahead of time.
