5 Things You Can Do to Make Your Upcoming Apartment Move Less Stressful!

1. Let Your Movers Do Their Job!

When you hire professional movers, know that they have a routine and a system that helps them to perform more efficiently! Although you may be a wonderful and kindhearted person, step back and let the movers do their job without trying to help. Things will get done faster and you will get your money’s worth out of your moving service!

2. Finish Packing Before Your Movers Show Up

We can’t tell you how many upcoming apartment moves we have worked on where we show up and clients are still packing boxes! If you decide to pack your belongings yourself, please know that it makes your mover’s job much more difficult if they have to work around you. Try instead to get your packing finished up before we show up and that way we can start moving you right away!

3. Use That Sharpie!

If you are packing your own boxes for your move, make use of a Sharpie and write on the top of each box IN BOLD LETTERS where you would like the box to go in your new apartment. We can’t tell you how much easier it is to know where you want everything to go without shouting over heads with arms full of boxes!


When you pack your own moving boxes for your upcoming apartment move, make sure that you pad any breakables well. Also, make sure to label those boxes as FRAGILE! Here at Big Boys Movers we take care with ALL of your possessions, but we load your boxes into our truck based on their contents…you don’t want that huge box of books sitting on top of your crystal vase, right? A simple FRAGILE sticker or clear “FRAGILE” written on top of the box helps to keep your stuff safe!

5. Be Present

Even the most well planned upcoming apartment move can run into snags or lead to questions, so it’s important that you make yourself available and be present on moving day. If you aren’t able to be there, have someone who can be there to answer any questions pertaining to your move.
