Planning a You Pack Move

June 24th, 2013 - 4:01 PM

You Pack Moving Services

We talk a lot about the fact that self-move “You Pack” services are really popular right now. People seem to be drawn to the idea of saving money by doing some of the work on their own (especially when it’s a significant savings).

I totally get that.

It makes complete sense that you’d want to avoid spending outrageous amounts of money by hiring someone to do it all if you can get friends and family to help out and move at a fraction of the cost.

That’s exactly the purpose of a “You Pack” move.

Do you need to get rid of batteries before you move?

If you are getting ready to move and cleaning out the junk drawer, you’ll want to properly dispose of your batteries. Not only is this safe for the environment, but also safe for you. For starters, you’ll need to understand what type of battery you have: alkaline, other (lithium, zinc, rechargeable), car batteries, or electronic batteries. Each type of battery has a different disposal procedure.
