Before your move try to obtain a written appraisal of antique items to verify value.
Avoid waxing or oiling wooden antiques (and fine wood furniture) before moving. Some products may soften the wood, and make it vulnerable to
imprinting from furniture pads.
Unplug all television sets a few hours in advance of the move, so that they will be at room temperature when the movers arrives. Moving a TV set in
which heat is still retained can cause internal damage.
Be available to check off items on the inventory as they are removed from the van.
