Six Great Tips from your Minneapolis Movers:

  • Summer is peak season for moving. Choosing a mid-month or mid-week moving date can be an advantage.
  • Set aside an area in your house for yourself, where you can make telephone calls, keep the things you don't want packed by the movers, and find a little quiet time while the packers and movers are at work.
  • Find a place for your pets to rest during move days - which can be hard on them - a neighbor's house, or a kennel.
  • Make sure you set aside items you and your family will need during the move days - financial information, favorite toys or games, the coffee pot and the coffee, whatever's important to you. The more we know, the better we can meet your needs.
  • Keep your moving company's customer service representative updated about any changes in timing, special arrangements, or contact information. We try to meet every need you have - the more we know, the better we can do that.
  • Be sure to keep your phone connected through the day of loading, or have a mobile number where you can be reached.
