Top 5 helpful moving tips
- Use foam plates to protect your glass plates by putting them in-between each plate before packing them vertically. The foam plates prevent the glass plates from clinking and breaking. Stuff soft clothes or towels to fill up the empty spaces to keep the plates from shifting when being moved.
- Use egg cartons to carry your jewelry. This will prevent them from getting tangled or breaking. Make sure you seal the sides so that they don't fall out.
- Use Ziploc bag to pack screws. Most people misplace screws and bolts during a move. Keep them safe by attaching the plastic bags to their respective pieces of furniture. This makes it easy to locate them when reassembling the furniture.
- Purchase boxes of different sizes and other packing supplies from local stores. Moving companies provide boxes specifically designed to carry household items. They have boxes for different items like picture frames, mirrors, and artwork.
- Gas, paint thinner, nail polish, guns, and acids are considered hazardous. If you have any machine like lawn mowers, drain out the gasoline to avoid exposing your belongings to possible danger.
Why hire a professional moving company?
- No need to involve friends: No matter how much your friends love you, they know how tasking the moving process can be and would rather skip the part where they help you. Instead of putting your friendship on the line, hire a professional moving company. They are skilled to complete a move with ease without causing any damages.
- Fast and efficient: The staff of a professional moving company performs moves on a daily basis. They are trained to pack with speed and use the available space efficiently. Delicate items like antiques and artifacts will be handled with utmost care and delivered without a scratch. They know the techniques to use when loading and unloading your items to ensure minimal damage.
- Moving estimates: Professional movers send experts for an in-house survey to provide you with an estimate of how much the move is going to cost. They take inventory of everything you own with detailed descriptions of their condition to help when accounting for missing or damaged items.
- Accountability: Interstate movers must include the cost of full value protection to protect your items. The movers become accountable for your move and will do their best to keep your items safe. You can relax knowing that you're covered in case of an accident.
How to find a reputable mover
Fill in your mover with all the details about your move and ask if there will be any extra charges. If you have large pieces of furniture or if your items will be carried up a flight of stairs, make sure they are aware to avoid inconveniences on moving day. Some companies charge differently for packing services. Being straightforward with the movers will help you have a smooth process.
Don’t sign any contract before carefully reading the terms and conditions. Most people skip to the last page without knowing what they are signing for only to be surprised when paying for the services.
Look at several reviews sites to find more information about your moving company. The Better Business Bureau is a reputable site where you can find tons of user reviews from past customers. Read the reviews carefully to determine whether or not the company is worth hiring.
