How to pack your stuff!

No matter how big or small your move is, it is very important that your move is as stress-free, quick, and easy as possible. At Nice Guys Movers, we know that packing and unpacking can be extremely stressful! But, with our tips and guidelines, we are determined to change that! 

Before Packing

Take care of your address change. This saves you time and stress. You don’t want to have to worry about these things after you are settled in your new home. This process usually takes a few days anyways, so make sure to do it before you pack!

Make a moving checklist. Be as detailed on your list as you wish. This will help keep everything organized and running smoothly. Give each person an assigned job for packing, or on moving day. This will also give you peace of mind, knowing that you have things sorted out ahead of time!

Cancel your services the day before the move. Cancel Cable Tv, Pest Control, Cleaning Services, Newspaper Delivery, etc. This will save you stress and money!


Pack important documents separately. Important Documents (wills, deeds, home videos, photos, artwork, jewelry, etc.) are irreplaceable. Make sure to pack them in a labeled box that is easy to locate.

Label all boxes and bags. Be as detailed as you wish. It is great idea to label the destination room of the new home that each box or bag will be placed into. This will keep your new home organized and save you the hassle and time of searching for things. 

Pack a box for essentials. In this box, pack anything you will need immediately after the move. Make sure to pack this box on the truck last for easy access.
