"Tulsa's Best Movers"

Moving Tips

Things we've learned from moving, and from customers over the years.

Before The Move

  • How you prepare for your move will in part determine the success of your move.
  • Take care of time consuming items before your movers arrive (bunk beds, tramploines, gym equimpent) because time is money.
  • Make sure you have a generous supply of packing materials. Movers are not responsibl for damages to the contents of boxes you pack, so pack and mark your boxes well.
  • Defrost and empty refrigerators and freezers before move day.

Packing and Labeling

  • Never overstuff your boxes. The lids should close smoothly on top for loading on a truck.
  • Use an easy to understand room lableling system such as MB for master bedroom, DR for dining room.
  • Mark fragile boxes clearly and if necessary, mark as "Top Load" to ensure they don't end up under heavier boxes.
  • A simple rule of thumb for packing boxes, if it fits in a box, it must be packed. Any sized box. Movers will move it even it it's not boxed but it will not be covered in the event of damage.

Moving out

  • Before move day, consider a "donate" and "sell" approach to items you won't need. Don't pay a mover to move something you're not going to need.
  • Consider moving out the day before closing, if you can get into your new home, which will give you time to clean your old house.
  • On move day, make sure the movers do a thorough walk around with you to make sure nothing is forgotten.
  • Let's get you over to the new home.

Moving in

  • The moving company never gets to see the new home until we arrive on move day to unload. If there are difficult entryways or narrow basements, make sure the movers know before your move.
  • Consider placing a label outside of each room so the movers know where everything goes (remember the labeling system mentioned above).
  • Do another walk around with the movers at the end of the move to make sure everything is in the correct room and assembled.
  • Welcome to your new home.

However we cannot provide any asistance with gas appliances and the customer should contract with a licensed plumber for this service. With electrical appliances, no liability is offered against any type of damage when our movers disconnect or reconnect appliances, and so the customer should consider completing this portion of the move themselves or contacting an appliance technician. This includes the installation of shipping bolts on front load washing machines (refer to your owners manual for more informaiton on moving a front load washing machine).
All customers are required to pay for moving service in full at completion. Any unpaid service is subject to a 1% per day late fee. Customers can pay with check or cash.
