Packing & Money Saving Tips for Your Next Move

Interested in saving time and money on your move? You’re in luck! As moving experts, Two men And a Truck have compiled this comprehensive list of tips to ensure your move is a smooth one.


  • Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move. For large appliances, check your owner’s manuals for any special moving instructions.
  • As you take apart furniture and other items, tape all parts to the main base.
  • By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases, and other flammables such as ammunition or explosives. Plan ahead for these items.
  • Schedule disconnect times about a week before your move day — you don’t want to have to pay for cable, phone, and utilities beyond move day!

More Moving Tips


  • Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy very fast.
  • Never use printed newsprint to wrap fine china.
  • Always stack dishes vertically when packing.
  • Pack important and sentimental documents separately for easy access including children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information, and photo albums.
  • Rule of thumb: the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
