The closer your movers can place their loading ramp to your front door or staircase the better.
SAME SIZED BOXES
Regular sized boxes can be quickly stacked in the truck without having to play Tetris. Think you're saving money by scoring free boxes? Think again! Trying to stack all of your odd shaped boxes will actually add a significant amount of time to your move.
CLEAR THE WAY
Keep porches, stairwells, hallways and entrances free of items and junk. The faster your movers can maneuver around your home, the quicker the job will get done.
Only if you're feeling up to it of course. Taking apart an IKEA bed and rebuilding will add about 20 minutes to your move. Removing legs from a table could take 10 minutes. The difference between taking apart your own furniture could easily save you one-hour of billed moving time.
ORGANIZE THE ODDS AND ENDS
Fans, brooms, mops, vacuums, house plants, sporting equipment, wooden slabs, rolled posters and other awkward items can not be loaded in the truck as is. Try to bundle like-shaped items together and place all smaller items inside of boxes.
SHOW YOUR MOVERS ALL ITEMS AT THE BEGINNING
Your movers will load the truck with a strategy in mind. If near the end of the loading process you say, "Oh! and I have two air conditioners, a snow blower and a patio set in the shed", they may have to spend time rearranging the truck to accommodate the extra items.
RESERVE THE ELEVATOR
Your movers will be able to lock the elevator which simplifies and quickens the process. It isn't easy to load an elevator that is constantly attempting to crush you.
