You spent a lot of money on your household valuables. Doesn’t it make perfect sense to protect them?

Working With the Mover

  • Call your United agent to set a date for the agent to visually survey your home and prepare an estimate.
  • If your company is paying for your move, refer to their moving policy to determine the services the mover will be authorized to perform.
  • Do you want to do any of the packing — or will you have it done by our experienced packers? Your agent will be happy to discuss packing services with you.
  • Show the agent everything that is going to be moved. Any items you fail to disclose or that are added later to the shipment will increase the cost, even if you have been given a binding estimate.
  • Read the “Your Rights and Responsibilities Manual” (for full-service moves) to make certain that you fully understand the extent of the carrier’s liability.
  • Sign the Estimate/Order for Service after you are sure you have a clear understanding of each section. If you have any questions, ask your agent to explain.
  • Keep the phone number and name of your salesperson or move coordinator handy.

Make Room for the Holidays

Fall has arrived, and for many, a time to get things in order. Perhaps you moved over the summer or simply have been too busy to find a space for everything that has accumulated over time.

Although the task can often seem daunting, de-cluttering and reorganizing your garage or basement…perhaps a bedroom, or two…is not difficult if you use these basic steps.

Step 1: Identify and Prioritize

Which areas need the most help? The garage or basement may need the most attention, but if your in-laws are coming for Thanksgiving, then the guest bedroom should be first on your to-do list.

Step 2: Categorize

Everything you see will fall into one of these five categories:

Essential: These are items that you use daily.
Seasonal: These are items that are used seasonally or on occasion. Decorations for holidays or parties fall into this category. However, it could also be clothing (such as winter/spring wear), sports gear or lawn care. Anything that will only be retrieved when needed.
Sentimental: These are items you do not use daily but which you want to keep.
Un-used: You no longer use these items or use them rarely. They do not have any sentimental value. These may be items that would be good for a yard sale, but don’t try to decide that at first.
Trash: Anything that doesn’t fall into the above categories should be considered trash.

Step 3:  Sorting

Now it’s time to start sorting. First, assign a space for each category. It could be a corner of the room (this is seasonal; that is sentimental, etc.) or could be tagged bins/boxes/bags. Now you are ready to sort. Hint: Don’t think too much. Remember, nothing is leaving your possession right away, and you can always shift an item to a different category later.

Step 4: Storage

Now that everything is sorted, it’s time to store.
Essential items need to be readily accessible.
Seasonal items can be boxed and stored on-site or with A.C.White for easy access during the year.
Sentimental items can be boxed and stored with A.C.White
Un-used items can be donated, recycled or boxed and stored with A.C. White for that spring yard sale you have in mind.
And, of course, toss the trash.
