Before you’ve completely packed all your possessions, you need to put together an essentials box. This box will contain everything you need for the first night in your new home. Without it, you’ll be tearing open boxes looking for a toothbrush or socks. Make sure that you include enough for all members of your family. […]
Packing & Unpacking Services
The initial step when moving is packing your belongings. This can be time consuming and if not done properly, can result in your items getting damaged during the move. It is wise to consider professional movers to pack everything properly to ensure your items arrive at their destination unharmed.
Full Packing Services
When you schedule full packing services, the mover brings all the materials needed to pack your items properly. These supplies include boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper and more. For large moves, a day designated exclusively for packing may be necessary.
When self–packing or partial packing you will need to provide the packing materials. It is also important to schedule accordingly so that you aren’t unprepared on your moving date. It is common for people to pack some on their own and leave fragile items and electronics for the professional movers to handle.
Furniture Disassembly and Reassembly
It is important to consider all that is necessary for furniture disassembly and reassembly. Often, certain tools such as a screw gun or Allen wrench are necessary to break down furniture for moving and reassemble once moved. Items like pool tables and bed frames take extra time and attention, but a moving service can disassemble these items quickly.
Packing for Storage
Sometimes renting a storage unit is necessary if you can’t complete your move right away, or you just need some extra space to store your things. When packing things for a storage unit, it’s important to consider the length of time they will be there and the size of the unit. When packing for storage it is preferable to have most items in boxes, and furniture items covered and protected as best as possible. Professional movers can help you pack your items to keep them free of mold, mildew, and pesky pests.
Now you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s time to unpack. When unpacking, it’s helpful to have boxes labeled so that you do not forget if the box contains a fragile item. Moving professionals pay special attention when loading and unloading and pack the truck in a manner where things are not prone to break or be damaged. When unpacking, it’s important to be aware of glass and items that need extra care.
