Don't let moving get you down or
wear you out. We have come up with the following steps to ease your
pain. The key is to plan ahead so you will be ready for anything
that comes along. Space World movers are here to help your moving
day go smoothly.
We have a helpful tips and frequently asked questions page we would like you to visit.
Be there on the day of the move!
Sometimes life makes it hard for
you to be there while your moving so we encourage that if you
can't be there, at least have someone there that would be able to answer any
questions that the movers may have.
Supplies, Supplies, Supplies!
If you plan on packing or the
movers packing for you, either way, its important to have all the
necessities. Make a list of items that will help you ease your
- Bubble Wrap

Keep it light
Fill boxes up but keep it light.
This will make moving faster and lighter boxes won't put a lot
strain on your back. You may not feel the pain at the beginning of
a move but after a few hours your back will. So, keep it light!
Write boldly and clearly
Everyone hates to send out a
search party for an item in an unmarked box. To make it easier for
you and the movers, mark the boxes boldly and clearly. If it's
breakable, write "fragile". Also include a destination for the
boxes. If there are toiletry items that belong to your children,
write "kid's bathroom." If it helps you, you could even write some
of the items that are in the box on the outside. That would help
you distinguish one kitchen box from the others.
Prevent bodily damage
To avoid any damage to the movers
or your possessions we advise that you take any steps to pad up
sharp edges. We provide blankets for those occasions. We strive to
keep your belonging safe and in uninjured hands.
Comfort and communication
Nothing is worse that moving in
100 degree weather and having a sweaty mover hug your couch, so if
its possible to keep you utilities on until the movers are done,
this would be deeply appreciated. Having a way to communicate to
the movers would benefit you and the movers. Sometimes we run into
traffic and our arrival time is delayed, this is why we send our
movers out with a cell phone so they can keep you updated on their
Cover the Floor
We move all year round so it's
hard to predict the weather. It would be nice to be able to move
everyone on a nice day, but Mother Nature has a way of ruining a
moving day. If it's sprinkling on your moving day, place a throw
rug by the entrance way to keep the movers from slipping, and keep
your nice living room rug spotless.
Make a path through your house for
everyone to maneuver around. Have the pets put up so there's no
tripping over Spot. The movers love kids and have kids of their
own and it would make them feel bad to step on and break one of
your children's toys, so have all the toys you can get away with
put up or out of harm's way.
Clean up a bit
Nothing's more embarrassing than
to see money, food, or toys fall out of your couch when the movers
pick it up. Take a vacuum to couches and love seats to keep the
embarrassing moments to a minimum.
Quench Your Appetite
Working on a schedule puts
everyone's nerves on edge. To help minimize the crankiness of
spouses and/or children have some snacks or drinks handy.
Depending on how long your move is scheduled for, you might want
to order out or have a cooler packed with goodies.
There might be something worse
than a dirty couch and that's dirty cabinets. Wipe down cabinets,
drawers, and shelves. The new owners would appreciate it and the
movers would too.
Try to remember to keep some
cleaning supplies handy. We are movers not house maids. We always
do our best to pick up after ourselves and clean up any mess that
we've made, but remember, you didn't hire us to wipe the blinds,
dust the ceiling fans, or cleaning your refrigerator. We will if
you ask us to.
