1 Week Before You Move

Loose ends

  • This is the time to tie up any loose ends. Double-check to make sure you have everything you need.

Confirm travel arrangements

  • Pack your suitcases and confirm your family’s travel arrangements (flights, hotel, rental cars, etc.). Try to keep your plans as flexible as possible in the event of a change of schedule.

Your new address

  • Contact us and make sure the we have the address and phone number where you can be reached if you are not going directly to your new home.

Clean out the fridge

  • At least one day before moving, empty, defrost and clean your refrigerator and freezer. If necessary, prepare your stove to be moved. Try using baking soda to get rid of any odors.

Prepare for your first night

It’s never a bad idea to have a box or a suitcase that carries the essentials for living so that, come the next day, you can find what you don’t want to live without. Things like toiletries, food, water, coffee, some clothes, shampoo, medications, toilet paper, baby supplies (if there is one) and so on. And don’t forget about some CASH. Think about what you’re going to need first thing the next day and be sure to set that aside or in your car so you can find what you need when you need it.

Our APEX estimator, James, is a true professional and provided a prompt bid and follow up. The office staff was knowledgeable & courteous. The moving crew comprised of Eugene (an amazing lead), Manu, Billy and Ron were on-time, treated each other with respect and humor. They were hands-down the hardest working crew we have experienced! They made our move fun! A huge thank you and major KUDOS to APEX Moving and Storage for a seamless seamless transition to our new home!read more

Excellent service!!! Apex was awesome, in every way! Initially I contacted them for an estimate - they came out, were very professional, explained everything - all the options - nothing hidden, super helpful! I got my estimate which was explained very thoroughly to me and that it was an "estimate" and how it could maybe go up or maybe go down. Again, very up front and professional, nothing hidden at all. The date ended up changing and the office staff were nothing but courteous and understanding the entire time - I knew I could count on them! Moving day finally came and the moving staff were super friendly, helpful, and very efficient! What I really loved about Apex was they broke down those items that needed to be (e.g., a treadmill, some shelving) and it was ALL included - when I arrived at my destination and everything was unloaded, boom, it was unloaded to where I need it to be and all the items that had been taken apart were put back together! When I got my bill it was a wee bit higher than my estimate, which I knew to possibly expect, but it was because the weight of all my stuff was higher than had been initially figured, no problem. No surprises or hidden costs - and EVERY step of the way was professional, caring, helpful, and efficient! Moving sucks, but if I ever have to go through that again (I hope it's no time soon!) I will most definitely go through Apex!read more
