Moving and Packing Pointers

Most people pack up and move very infrequently, so they never really become skilled at organizing and packing. Here are few simple things that you can do to make your move easier.

A typical moving mistake most people make is that they don’t start packing early enough.

Save yourself the time consuming task of searching for cheap moving boxes by shopping on-line. MovingDayBoxes.com delivers to most addresses in the country in one to two business days, and offers free shipping on all orders of moving supplies, inlcuding wardrobe boxes.

Check the business out on the Better Business Bureau website to ensure this is a reputable company, and only work with moving companies that are part of the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), and check them out at
