Preparing For Moving Day: Tips From The Professional Movers at M. Dyer & Sons, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving doesn’t have to be a major stressor for you and your family. With preparation, organization, and the best professional movers, it can be more seamless than you think. M. Dyer & Sons, located in Pearl City, HI, helps streamline the moving process with these five tips to implement two weeks to a month before your move:

  • Three Stacks: Start going through your belongings a month in advance of your move and separate them by what you’ll keep, toss, and donate (or sell at a garage sale). Gradually throw out old items that can no longer be used. Find an organization that is aligned with your charitable values and schedule a pick-up, or make a profit by selling things you don’t need or want.
  • Find Your Mover: Qualities to look for in a moving company include how long they’ve been in business, whether they’re licensed, bonded, and insured, and whether they have a good reputation. M. Dyer & Sons, in business for over 45 years, is fully licensed, bonded, and insured, and has a long list of client testimonials on their website.
  • Store It: Moving into a smaller place? Can’t use your great-aunt’s antique tapestry in the new house? Find a mover that will care for your collectibles and store your items in a clean, reputable facility. M. Dyer & Sons will help you find the right size climate-controlled unit. 
  • Take Inventory: Start packing items that you don’t use often so you’re ready for moving day. Label all of your boxes and tape them properly. If you’re ambitious, create a detailed list of what is in each box, so you don’t have to search for it later. Set boxes aside in your garage for a while so they’re out of the way; just make sure there are no leaks or exposure to the elements.
  • Make The Switch: Make sure to contact your utility companies to change your services from one house to the other. Doing this in advance will help get everything up and running smoothly when you move into your new home.

If you are moving to Hawaii from the mainland, inter-island or within Maui, M. Dyer & Sons will take care of all of your moving and storage needs, packing you up on the mainland, shipping your car, storing your items if they arrive before you, and more. They specialize in fragile handling, and offer concierge storage service to assist with fine art and collectibles.
