Moving Tips

Remember: You pay by the hour for our services. Having your things prepared to be moved when we arrive will save you both time and money. Below are some tips that we have on how you can be best prepared when our Alpha Moving Assistants arrive:

Make sure that all of your small items are packed away properly into boxes or bins. Carrying small items individually can increase the time of a job considerably. 

Empty all contents out of drawers in dressers, desks, and cabinets and pack them away. This will not only make the furniture lighter and easier to move safely, but will also keep the contents safer. 

Take out any removable glass from furniture, cabinet doors, etc. Wrapping the glass throughly will help prevent glass from breaking during the move/drive. 

Have bed frames broken down and ready to move. (Taping bedrails together at both ends makes them much easier to carry)

Create clear pathways for our moving assistants to move through when carrying your items. Keeping floor clutter out of the way can keep our guys safer and might even save you time & money. 

Make sure all pets and small children are kept out of high traffic areas so that they do not get in the way of our moving assistants. 

Make sure all televisions are disconnected and ready to carry. This includes the satellite receiver and any sound system equipment. 

If we are unloading, having your items/boxes labeled with where you want it put will keep us from having to ask repetitively.
