Moving Tips

Moving tips on this page can greatly help you with your move. However, they are not required as we are professional moving company that can take care of everything during the move.

Plan your move ahead of time

High Five Movers will always help you with your last minute move. However, it is better to pick a certain date and time at least a week before the move.

Pack your belongings

Our professional movers and packers will have no problem properly packing your belongings. However, if you are doing packing yourself, these are few tips for you.

Use smaller boxes for heavy things and bigger boxes for lighter.
We recommend using new moving boxes because of their durability.
All the boxes should be taped with a flat surface for proper stacking in the moving truck.

Put things that you need the most in transparent containers to find them quickly

Remember, you will have a lot of boxes by the end of your move. Our professional movers can’t keep track of all the boxes. So, use labels or markers to mark your moving boxes.

Disassembling beds and other furniture is a normal practice during moving. But, in case you are disassembling bulky furniture by yourself, put all the screws and small details in special plastic bags with zip locks.

If you’re packing your kitchenware by yourselves, pack plates vertically as you would pack records.

If you have a lot of electronics with difficult wiring, take a picture before unplugging the devices.

Make it empty before moving

Some of the furniture items can be flipped for stacking or safety purposes. Our professional movers can lift heavy items. However, you should always try to empty your furniture, such as dressers or TV stands, especially if they are heavy by themselves. Also, it is a good idea to empty the fridge before moving.

Parking a moving truck

Movers from our moving company know a lot of neighborhoods very well. However, parking is very often a tricky part.  Think about possible space for parking a moving truck. Most of the apartment complexes or neighborhoods can issue a temporary parking permit for moving.  In case you live in a gated community, make sure our movers will have access on the day of the move.

These guys are the greatest! We had booked with another company who flaked, so we needed someone same day and they totally killed it! They were careful and courteous and we couldn’t be happier with their service! I hope to never move again, but if I do, they will be my first call! Highly recommended!!

Perfect. Efficient, reliable, cool service. Roman and Kyle showed up exactly on time, were careful with my stuff, worked tirelessly for hours, and were super nice too. Would not hesitate to recommend High Five, or hire them again. I called around a lot. You either find well-established services who are probably great movers, but they want to discuss every piece of lint you own, give you a quote before they come, and/but then nickel and dime you for every foot of packing wrap they’ll “need.” Or you find great rates on craigslist, but they don’t even have websites, and if you call, the communication is poor, and who knows if they’ll even show up when moving day comes and you have to get the f out. Anyway, High Five is completely straightforward. Two guys, big truck, by the hour, on time, no bullsht. Also, their website is cute, and Roman and Kyle are pretty cute too.

Kirill and Roman were awesomely diligent in moving fast and handling my stuff with tender loving care. They even provided free interior decorating advice. I definitely appreciate how painless they made the move, especially since I scheduled it just 5 days before.
