Tip # 473 Tape all moving boxes tightly both on the highest and underneath. Dont overload moving boxes. Never fill them larger than the folding edge, so that they can be stapled rapidly and safely.
Tip # 559 Earlier than the moving firm arrives, have a clear out. Keep in mind William Morris' interior design mantra that "every part must both be useful or lovely". Precious objects which might be no longer wanted may be auctioned or offered to a seller in second-hand furniture. Other objects can be donated to charity outlets or recycled.
Tip # 43 When interviewing possible moving companies, remember to ask if they will have a contact person on site or provide a contact number for the day of the move.
