Obviously the less packing the movers have to do for you... the more money you will save. Here's a few tips that will help you save time and money. Hope they help!

Kitchen, Alli's Room, Garage... Ext. This will allow your movers to quickly get the boxes to the right place at your new home. Many people will mark furniture with masking tape as well. Such as Living room coffee table, or Master Bedroom Night Stand.

Have Furniture Disassembled
Of course we can do this for you, but if you want to shave time off your move time try having beds taken apart and other furniture that requires disassembly all ready to go. Put screws and small parts in a ziploc bag and tape it to one of the furniture pieces.

It also creates a solid foundation that helps keep your belongings safe from moving around and falling during the drive to your new home.
