Things You Should Know About Hiring Raleigh Movers

Need help moving? How do you get started?

1. Get a piece of paper and count all the big items in your home by name. Example: 42-inch plasma TV – 2, queen-sized bed – 2 mattresses and two box springs. Yes, it takes time, but it's worth it to cut down on time which also cuts down on the price.

2. Take a box of the size you think you will use to pack. Put as many small items in the box as will fit. Take the same box room to room and think about how many items will fit in the box. Write down how many boxes will be needed for each room. For example Master bedroom – 6 boxes. You will use this information when talking to a mover.

3. Go to the garage and do steps one and two.

4. Go outside to the front, rear and side yard and make the same estimate.
