Tips for making your move easier
Packing is one of the most important parts of moving. It may as well be the determinant whether your move will be successful or a total fail. In this regard you need to buy sufficient packing materials. This includes boxes, cartons, adhesive tape, bubble wrap, and styrofoam.
When shopping for boxes, remember bigger is not always better. While it may seem like a noble idea, remember that the more items you stuff in one box, the heavier it gets. A heavy box will prove hard to lift and may cause back injuries. We recommend buying medium-sized boxes that can hold around 50 pounds top. This way, you need not worry about the box slipping off your hands and damaging the contents inside.
It’s always safer to use heavy duty boxes when you are transporting heavy stuff. If you do not have heavy duty boxes, you can line the ones you have with adhesive tape. This will make them sturdier. For regular household items, dishes, and books, a medium box will do the trick.
Invest in plenty of contractor bags to pack your clothes in. The bags will keep your clothes protected from wear and tear during the long haul. Place the contractor bags in laundry baskets to maximize on space.
You need to be very careful when packing fragile items. The best way to protect them is by covering each item with bubble wrap. If your budget is tight, you can use towels and sheets instead. Ensure that each plate, glass, and any other fragile piece of crockery is wrapped separately to prevent breakages.

Why should you hire a professional moving company?
Professional movers are highly skilled in all areas of moving and ensure everything is done in a fast and efficient manner. They have enough transport trucks, manpower and equipment to ensure that you move is completed in a day. This will ultimately save you time and energy.
Most reputable movers in Phoenix are insured. This means you do not have to worry about your belongings getting damaged or lost during the move. Should this occur, all your losses will be recouped. It’s a win- win situation either way.
How to find the best moving company
Ask your friends, coworkers, and family if they have enjoyed the services of a professional moving company in Phoenix. Take recommendations from them. After you get a name, research it on the net to learn more about it. The firm you choose should have positive reviews and must be accredited by the BBB.
Do not go by the estimates provided to you over the phone. If it is a reputable business, a professional will come to your place to look at your furniture and then offer the estimate. He/she will check out your personal belongings right from clothing and dishes to heavy furniture items. This will help you get the accurate estimate. Seek price estimates from 2-3 moving companies and compare them.
Some companies include the packing and unpacking services within the service package while others do not. When you get the price estimate, ask them to give you the breakdown of all the services provided therein. Each and every service must be noted in writing along with the prices before you sign a contract.
