Before all pickups, decide exactly what’s going into storage. Remove any mounted items, like TVs or artwork, from the walls. Be sure to unplug and dry out any large appliances like refrigerators, AC units, and washers at least 24 hours before your pickup. If you have any items that need to be disassembled with specialized tools (like a Sleep Number bed), make sure that they’re taken apart ahead of time.
If you choose a Curbside Pickup, you’ll take extra steps to prepare.
