Moving Tips

At Integrity Moving and Storage in Columbus, Ohio, we are committed to being your top solution for each of your relocation services. Throughout the years, our moving company has handled everything from local to long distance moves. We are available to assist you with a variety of your needs.

Relocation Services: Know Your Rights

Before you start your search for a company to help you with your relocation, it is important that you understand your rights as a consumer. Any moving company must be able to provide you with its registration numbers for the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and their Motor Carrier number.

If you believe you are being taken advantage of by an illegitimate company, please file a formal complaint with the F.M.C.S.A. and the P.U.C.O. We are happy to handle your transportation needs with professionalism and pride.

Moving Tips

Whether you are a first-time mover or a seasoned veteran at relocating your belongings, the home movers at Integrity are here to help you with the process. For the best results for your next move, we offer the following tips:

Don’t Pack What You Don’t Need

As you pack your belongings, you may find you have many unused items around your home or business. This is the perfect time to get rid of these items and reduce clutter in your new space. We work closely with a second-hand retail store that resells furniture and household goods. For your convenience, we also offer cleaning services to help you clear out the clutter.

Stay Organized

Many of our customers choose to pack their own belongings. If you do not want to use our packing services, please make sure all boxes are clearly labeled. Delicate items should be placed in a box marked “FRAGILE.” For your safety, we recommend you hang on to things you may need during the move, including cell phones, chargers, keys, wallets, purses, and jewelry.

Know How to Pack

Most people don’t realize just how complicated it can be to pack their belongings. It is important to remember not to over or under-pack your boxes. All boxes should be taped on the underside, while tops should be able to close flat for easy stacking. Please make sure to hang on to any hardware, nuts, and bolts from any items you had to disassemble.

We recommend delicate items like glassware, dishes, and fine china in tissue paper before packing. These valuables should be unpacked over a padded surface for your safety.

Be Prepared

Even if you are only relocating a short distance away, it can take hours before you have access to your belongings. We recommend packing several essential boxes with things like food, utensils, toiletries, and cleaning supplies.

Before moving out, please ensure that your fridge is emptied and your freezer defrosted. If you are packing things yourself, we suggest stocking up on moving supplies before the big day.
