At Texas Best Moving & Storage, we know that the moving process is challenging. That’s we take pride in providing the most dedicated moving services in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. Quality service with a professional approach to every move, that’s our obligation to you, every time.

Whether you are moving from one location in San Antonio to another, or anywhere in Texas, we have you covered. Our San Antonio movers are experienced residential and commercial movers who will make the process easy, and stress free.

There are a number of reasons why people consider hiring professional movers: time restrictions, family obligations, job relocations, they’re all stressful. Call Texas Best Moving & Storage to help. No matter if you’re planning to move from a house, an apartment, or a business location. We have built our reputation on focusing on customer care and quality service. You won’t be disappointed in Texas Best Moving & Storage.

Here are our top moving tips to get started:

  1. Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day.
  2. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  3. Use wardrobe boxes to make closets easier to pack. Clothes in drawers can be placed in suitcases.
  4. Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy, very fast.
  5. For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  6. Never use printed newsprint to wrap fine china.
  7. Always stack dishes upwards when packing.
  8. Pack important and sentimental documents separately to be easily accessible: children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information, and photo albums.
  9. Remember: the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
  10. Don’t pack with food or supermarket boxes. You never know what little critter is hiding – or if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  11. Don’t use used boxes. You don’t know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  12. Never use duct tape – use packing tape.
  13. Clearly label all boxes on top and side.
  14. Don’t try to get rid of your children’s favorite things before the move – even if it makes it easier. Kids sometimes have a hard time dealing with the change of the move itself.
  15. As you take apart furniture and other items make sure to tape all parts to the main base.
  16. Try to pack all electronic equipment, like stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use bubble wrap when packing these items.
  17. Start packing items you will not need ahead of time.
  18. By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.
  19. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  20. Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.
  21. Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.
  22. Two weeks before the move don’t forget to arrange to transfer school records.
  23. Make a “survival closet” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.
  24. Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day — you don’t want to have to pay for cable, phone and utilities when you aren’t even there!
  25. Mail in your change of address forms about week before your move date.
  26. Clean your stove before you move out.
  27. The day before your move, defrost the fridge.
  28. Make sure to get enough cash to get you through move day.
  29. If you are depending on friends and family to help you move, have a back-up plan if they don’t show.
  30. Don’t use boxes without tops. No tops make it impossible to stack properly in the truck.
  31. Use custom-designed boxes when packing fine china and clothing.

When interviewing moving companies:

  1. Ask if they are insured and bonded and how they charge.
  2. Ask if they charge extra for large items such as pianos and big screen TVs.
  3. Ask what kind of training their movers and drivers go through before servicing customers.
  4. Ask if there is a cancellation policy.
  5. Ask if they will have a contact person on site or provide a contact number for the day of the move.
  6. Ask if they move nights and weekends and if they charge for that service.
  7. Ask what type of payment options they offer.
  8. Ask what their customer referral rate is.
  9. Ask if they use full-time employees or temps and day labor. Be cautious of those who use temps and day labor because they may not have proper insurance.
  10. Ask if they offer free estimates.
  11. Ask if they charge for travel time from their office to your location.
  12. Ask if they have suggestions on how to make your move easier.
  13. Ask if they offer packing and unpacking services.
  14. Ask if they have a minimum charge.
  15. Ask if they charge by the piece or by the hour.

1.5 cubic foot moving box

3 cubic foot moving box

Referred to as the lamp or lampshade box; frequently used interchangeably with the 1.5 cubic foot box

4.5 cubic foot moving box

As the box gets larger, use for lighter objects such as pillows, bedding and stuffed animals

6 cubic foot box

Use for light objects; if you pack heavy items in this box it will be difficult to move.

Picture or mirror moving box

A four-piece box that can come in large or small sizes; can be customized by telescoping in and out; use crumpled packing paper in the corners to add cushion and make sure to wrap your mirror or picture with bubble wrap before placing it in the box

Wardrobe moving boxes

Allows clothes to be transported on hangers; includes a metal bar along top of box to hang clothing

Boxes for moving dishes

Also called a barrel, dish barrel or dish box; it’s the strongest box available; pack fragile, breakable items such as china; usually used for kitchen items

Dish pack inserts

Cardboard that goes inside the dish pack boxes to form individual cells for fragile items; inserts adjustable; extra cardboard piece included to be used as springboard to cushion

Packing paper/plain newsprint

Used to wrap everyday items to prevent scratching; when crunched up it can be used as cushioning

Tissue paper

Softer than newsprint, used for wrapping very delicate items; also provides cushioning and fills in small spaces when packing fragile figurines and china

Bubble wrap

Plastic packing material made up of hundreds of tiny “air cushions” or bubbles used to over-wrap small, delicate items after they are wrapped in tissue; also helpful when wrapping larger fragile items such as lamps and pictures

Pink anti-static bubble wrap

Used to wrap electronics including stereos and computers. It is similar to traditional bubble wrap but does not cause static electricity. If traditional bubble wrap is used to pack these items, a static electric charge could be created, damaging the item.

Duck® tape/Sealing tape

Plastic tape, 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide; best for packing, test to see if it ruins finish before taping up drawers and canisters. Use clear Duck® packing tape only and make sure to seal your boxes with packing tape. Duct tape doesn’t adhere well to corrugated cardboard. Boxes put together with duct tape will fall apart.

Permanent marker

Used to label boxes with contents and destination in new location; mark boxes “fragile” and “this side up” when appropriate

Resealable plastic bags

Used for nuts and bolts as you disassemble items, tape bag to disassembled item

Beware of used boxes

People sometimes try to pack their belongings in used boxes to save money. Beware: Produce boxes often become weakened from the moisture of transportation or product spoilage. Additionally, insects often nest in used boxes.

  2. Start packing right when you know you are going to move: There are many things that you can pack right away. For example, photo albums, books, and mementos that can be packed first. Packing won’t be as stressful if you start sooner: don’t procrastinate packing.
  3. Schedule new utilities & cancel old ones: Make a list of all of the utilities that you need to cancel. Then you can schedule your new utilities with the new address.
  4. Hire professional movers: You probably have a lot of friends and family who can help you move, but they are not going to protect your belongings like a professional mover. Hire, Texas Best Moving, and we will make sure that all of your belongings are taken care of and taken to your new home.

  6. Don’t mix Items: When you are packing make sure that the items in each box belong in the same room. It makes it a lot more difficult if you place a whole bunch of kitchen items in a box full of bedroom items.
  7. Protect your stuff: When you are packing your fragile items be sure to wrap them to protect them from breaking. You don’t have to just use bubble wrap. You can wrap your breakables in towels, clothes, or even newspapers.
  8. Plan for your Fridge Items: If you are moving local it is easy to get your fridge and freezer items to your new place. However, long distance moves will make that a lot more difficult. You will have to figure out what are you going to do with all of your perishables.
