* Do all you can to ensure that your movers can park as close as possible to the entrance door at both locations. Movers walk from the truck to the apt/house repeatedly, each extra step adds up in the end.

* If you are moving TO a storage unit. Make sure that you have handled all paperwork with the office. The last thing anyone wants is to pay movers to sit and wait for 30-45 min. Unfortunately this does happen.
