Anything the movers would need tools to disassemble to be able to move needs to be taken care of ahead of time, for example – mirrors off dressers, headboards unbolted from frame of bed(s), washer & dryer disconnected etc. You may leave clothing items in dressers etc. Please remove all paper, breakables and fragile items and pack them in boxes. Desk-drawers must be completely empty. Legal-size, letter-size, and lateral file cabinets must be empty. Please have all boxes sealed with tape on both the top and bottom.
What Not to Pack and What to do with Not to Pack Items It is dangerous and illegal to pack and move flammable and hazardous materials. Call your local recycling pickup provider, fire station or the nearest Environmental Protection Agency office to learn how to properly dispose of flammable and hazardous materials before you move. Make a note in your notebook of the depot address, phone number, and hours of operation if you have to make a trip to dispose of these materials yourself. Set a date about a week before your move day and mark it on your calendar.
