Arrange Pick Up

Arrange for a charity organization to come pick up the items you don't want at least a week or two before moving.

Don't need take everything,sell something

If you own items that you want to get rid of but are too valuable to just give away, start selling on eBay, Etsy, or Craigslist at least six weeks before moving.

Defrost Refrigerator

Remember to defrost your refrigerator at least a day before moving and wipe up any liquid.

Irreplaceable Items

Move irreplaceable items such as keys, medicine, important papers and expensive pictures like oil paintings themselves. We recommend you this prior to your moving day.
