Telling That Your Mover Is Packing Your Furniture Correctly

Moving your furniture to a new house is not only stressful but also complex. Whether you are moving on your own or hiring moving professionals, it is an important consideration to ensure that your furniture is handled with great care. Especially when you are dealing with a mover, you must take them to task over their safety measures. Here are tips to help you establish whether the individuals handling the furniture are packing it correctly.

Are there enough packing supplies?

Most household items are best packed in boxes and containers. However, you cannot use containers or boxes to pack furniture considering their heaviness and large sizes. Other packing supplies are used to ensure that your furniture is protected during the move. Evaluate whether your moving company has enough packing supplies such as bubble wrap, mattresses and sofa covers, plastic stretch wrap, corrugated cardboard sheets, or even sealable plastic bags.

Prepare The Furniture Packing

How does the mover prepare the furniture for packing?

Taking some time to evaluate how the mover prepares your furniture for packing can give you a hint on whether they will pack the furniture appropriately. Usually, it is recommended to clean as well as ensure that the furniture is free of any dust before moving it. In addition, to protect the furniture, you need to ensure that there are no hard materials that can cause scratches on it while on the move. Check to see whether the mover removes drawers from the desks and dressers before they pack?

Does the mover dismantle the furniture before packing?

Dismantled furniture is not only easy to pack and carry, but also safe. If there is any furniture that can be dismantled, an experienced moving company would opt to dismantle and pack the furniture in pieces instead of moving it whole. You will know that a mover is not packing your furniture correctly if they insist on moving such an item without dismantling it.

Placement plan

Effective packing of furniture for a move is founded on a clear placement plan. The way in which the mover approaches placement of your furniture in the truck should send a clear signal on whether they are packing it correctly. Usually, the best mover will create a wall using boxes against the truck’s backend to ensure that the wall does not scratch the furniture. In addition, examine the order in which the mover packs all your furniture. For example, an experienced moving company would place corrugated cardboard or used packing blankets between pieces of furniture for protection against damage while on the move.

Packing your furniture for a move does not have to be stressful. All you need is careful consideration of the aspect of secure packing since this gives you room to ensure that all your furniture gets to the destination in good shape. Do not just hire any mover; take some time to find a moving company that is reputed for specializing in packing and moving large furniture.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
