Tips to Save You Time and Money on Moving Day


Label what's in your boxes, add what room they'll be going into as well.

The movers can put your boxes and furniture in the room you want, making it easier for you during the unpacking process. Try to remember to label the sides of the boxes. This way, you'll be able to identify them even if they're stacked.

Cover the openings of your toiletries and/or other liquids with saran wrap, then put the tops back on. You can also place them in individual zip-lock bags.

This will keep your toiletries from breaking and leaking all over your stuff during the move.

Pack plates vertically, like records. They'll be less likely to break. Make sure to place bubble wrap or something equally soft between each one. Label each box containing breakables as FRAGILE!

Heaven on Earth Moving is not responsible for poor packing on the customer's part, so please secure all fragile items, and make sure the boxes are labeled with FRAGILE accordingly so the movers will be aware to take extra care.

Keep your clothes in your dresser.

If you don't want to spend the time unpacking and repacking your dresser drawers, that's not a problem! We will wrap the entire dresser in plastic wrap and move it all in one go! Saves you both time and money on packing/unpacking even more boxes.

Keep sandwich bags handy for holding any small parts of things you have to take apart, like curtain rods or mounted flat-screen TVs.

Heaven on Earth will disassemble and reassemble items for you if needed, but if you would like to save time, and therefore money, on your move you can have those items ready for us to put on the truck. However we keep all of our own tools handy on site if needed.

The fastest way to pack your hanging clothes...

Use garbage bags to your advantage by bagging all of your hanging clothes, leaving only the hooks on the hangers out for movers to easily transport them from closet to closet. It'll save you and us both time and boxes.

Vacuum seal your out-of-season clothing.

Not only will they take up less space and be a breeze to pack, but they can go directly into storage in the new home.

Make sure everything is packed and ready before the movers show up.

Heaven on Earth does offer packing services, as well as boxes and wrapping upon request, but if you're trying to save both time and money on moving day having everything ready to load up will do both.

Have a clear path through the house and into each room.

Have a clear path from the front door, through the house, and into each room so our movers can see exactly what they are working with. We load our trucks strategically based on the number of items, their size, and weight. This ensures we can load everything efficiently, and in the safest way for transportation.
