Over the years, the following questions have been asked most often, and we have useful answers to help you prepare for your move:
1) Can I leave items in my dresser drawers?
It is fine to leave clothes in your dresser drawers. However, you should pack in boxes items that could break. Items of intangible value such as money or jewelry should always be taken out of dressers and moved by you personally.
2) Can movers take cleaning supplies on the truck?
Movers are not allowed to move cleaning supplies. These items should be moved by you, given away, or left with the house.
3) Can the movers disconnect or reconnect my appliances?
It is your responsibility to disconnect and reconnect gas and electric appliances. This is important in case there are any problems such as a leaky faucet or a broken turn-off valve. You will be able to notify a plumber immediately if you are aware of the problem. Gas needs to be shut off prior to disconnecting or reconnecting a gas appliance.
4) How do I move my clothes and shoes?
Clothes on a shelf or shoes in a closet should be boxed. Clothes on hangers fit nicely into wardrobe boxes which are 4’x2’x2’ and include a hanging rod. It is best not to put shoes in the bottom of these boxes. You can usually use these boxes free of charge from your Utah movers on the day of your move.
5) Can movers take my household plants?
For local moving, large floor plants can be moved on the truck if there is room. Any plants that sit on a desk or a table should be moved by you. For long-distance moving, plants can go on the truck to most states except for California. However, moving plants in a truck is not guaranteed.
A little bit of planning to move these items can make your moving day go a lot easier!
