Moving is a really huge project and not exactly the easiest one. Although moving companies are there to help get the job done, most homeowners still prefer to be hands on and “direct” how things are packed and what item goes where. That is perfectly understandable. After all, it was they who invested and worked hard in order to afford them. Hence, it makes perfect sense to want to be involved in the packing process and tell people which item goes where and the loading process just to make sure that it is loaded correctly and not just being thrown into the truck. You do not want your fragile items to break or risk damaging even just one of your precious furniture, do you? Hence, these are some important tips in packing and preparing for moving.
1. One of the major things that you just cannot do without if you intend to move is a truck. If you want the job to get finished fast, it is best to hire a truck that fits all of your boxes and furniture in just one go. This would lessen your moving time as well as the hassle. Now the question is where can you find one of those trucks? It is easy – just go online and start searching for a company near your area. You can also ask your friends for recommendations. If you want to learn more about the company, then call the Better Business Bureau to get the feedbacks of past clients to a moving company.
2. Did you know that you can rent pads to protect your furniture? Most moving companies offer them and all that you have to do is ask. Although it is best for you to still take time to wrap your furniture to make sure that they don’t get damaged, it pays to having extra padding that serves as protection. It will cost you extra but if it means none of your things will get damaged, isn’t the extra dollars worth it?
3. Do not just get one huge box to place all your belongings. It is best to get different sizes. The reason for this is that ideally, it is advisable to place heavy items in smaller boxes, with the heaviest and sturdiest one placed below. On the other hand, big boxes have to contain light items. This helps a lot during the “lifting” process of the entire move.
