I. Attention:
1. During the process of moving, two or more people should be appointed in the house to help each other. One of them should assist the movers in moving the things out of house while the other observes the loading of goods on the vehicle. Upon arrival at the new house, one should assist in the unloading of things while the other allocate the places for unloaded goods.
2. Please designate a packing lot in both new and old houses. Please inform the security guard in advance so that the moving can be conducted smoothly.
3. Electrical appliances such as refrigerators should be defrosted one day prior to moving and excessive water should be drained from the washing machine. Please do not use the electrical appliances on the moving day to prevent damaging the electrical appliance and causing harm to the movers.
4. Please verify the moving contract prior to moving and ensure that all items all listed in the contact to prevent dispute.
5. Please ensure that the vehicle is empty prior and after moving the goods.
6. Please specify valuable or fragile goods and remind the movers to be cautions while moving them.
7. Please verify with the movers if damage or scratch of furniture is noted after moving. 
8. Please check if furniture is damaged during the moving process. If so, please inform the moving company within 3 days (10 days for damages that are difficult to spot. If the duration stated on the contract states otherwise, damage must be notified within the stated duration) to compensatory procedures.
9. Electrical appliances such as refrigerator, air conditioning units, dehumidifier, should be power supplied 2 hours after settling to prolong lifespan of compressor. Fluids with rust inside the compressor may have moved during the moving process and operating the compressor prior to settling of the rust may cause damage to the pressure valves.
II. Moving Expenses:
The expenses are calculated according to the customer’s needs, budget, time and materials used. Moving expenses can be classified into the following categories:
1. Economical moving (without packing): This is also known as traditional moving and customers must complete all packing on their own and the moving company will move all items onto the vehicle without further packing. Cloths and mattresses will be used to protect the transported items but damage or scratch is inevitable if the roads are uneven.
2. Fine packing: Prior to moving, the movers will protect and pack all hardware furnishings, such as bedframe, closet, electrical appliances, and etc. with rags, plastics, cushions, and etc. accordingly. Clothes, books, kitchen utensils, and fragile items will be packed by the customers. The cost of fine packing is about 20-30% more than economical moving. 
3. Complete packing: Also known as hand-free as all the packing and moving will be done by the moving company and customers are not required to do any packing on their own and the moving can be completed effortlessly. The moving company will evaluate and plan the packing and moving process prior to moving. Hardware furnishings such as bedframe, closet, refrigerator, electrical appliances; and other items, such as clothes, books, glasses, ceramics, pots, plates, pans, fragile items, and etc. will be packed individually to prevent breaking during the moving process. The furniture will be assembled in the new house and all the respective items will be placed at the designed places and stored accordingly. This is a good option if your budget is sufficient and prefers moving without effort. This can minimize damage to the items and to your body. Nevertheless, this moving method will cost two or three times more than economical moving methods.
