The time has come and moving day is almost here. There is more to hiring a moving company than asking if they can wrap and pack. Professional qualified movers and packers know how important household items are. Treating every item like they would want their own personal belongs treated is how it should be.
The transition from one home to another is a planned process to maintain organization before, during and after the move. The movers and packers will utilize various sizes of boxes to keep the packed weight within the boxes divided evenly which makes handling the boxes safer and easier even after the movers are gone. Books are a great example of why to pack some items in smaller boxes. It doesn’t take many books in a box to get heavy.
Choices in Packing
Homeowners can choose from bubble wrap, paper, tissue paper, and cloth as a wrapping fragile items option. The packers will help select which option works best for what items. For sealing the boxes use a good packing tape gun. They are easy to use and will make the job of packing quicker. Consider buying one if the moving company doesn’t offer them because it will be money well spent.
Furniture can be wrapped in heavy blankets and pieces with glass doors can be taped to reduce any breakage. Some pieces will offer what homeowners will think of as a challenge, but the movers will know how to handle most situations. An experienced loader ensures that nothing gets damaged or broken during the move. But, make sure to ask the moving company what is the policy if something does get damaged and how to replace it.
Keeping things organized and mark boxes with information will greatly reduce stress because getting boxes unpacked at the new house and making it functional, will be work. Don’t try to unpack it all at one time. Write on the boxes what is summer or winter clothing. Out of season items can be stored until needed at a later time. Allow the movers and packers to offer guidance of how to do what. This is their profession and they know what works best.
