By adding them to your moving contract, you will make your relocation a much simpler process. The services we can offer you are:

The distance does not matter when it comes to keeping your belongings safe

Should you get our packing supplies and pack your items properly, they will not be damaged even if you are relocating to a completely different part of the country. In addition to this, should you add packing services to your agreement, you will do a favor to yourself. Professionals will handle your belongings and you will have enough time to organize other parts of your move.

Storing some of your belongings is a great choice

Using a storage unit to put inside some items you do not need at the moment is something that makes your relocation much simpler. Either if you want to use the unit for a short or long period of time, it is advisable that you use this opportunity. Naturally, your belongings are going to be safe and you can feel free to come and check in what condition they are. You should also know that our storage units are perfect for both personal and commercial items.

You will rarely find a moving company that offers some of the services we offer

What makes us different from other moving companies is the selection of moving services. To be more precise, babyproofing and handyman services are more than useful but not all companies can offer them. With us by your side, you will know that your baby is safe in your home. There is no reason why you would waste your time doing researches on how to babyproof your home. Our professionals already know all of the tricks and they are going to do this in no time.

Should you need some help with disassembling or reassembling your furniture, carpentry, or electrical services, just call us. Do not put yourself in a dangerous situation when you have a professional at your disposal.

Make the packing part easier- prepare yourself on time

Since this is quite a complex process, the key to completing this task successfully is good preparation. This is certainly something that will make packing much easier. First of all, think about what packing supplies you are going to need. Make a list and also think about the quantity. In order to do this properly, go around your home and check what items you need to pack. Feel free to get rid of all of the items you do not want to bring to your new home because, by doing this, you will need fewer boxes and less packing material. Once you start packing your belongings, you will get to do it with no pauses or delays. If it happens that you need some pieces of advice, you can always count on our movers.

You are going to benefit from these useful packing tips

  • Try to start packing 3 to 4 weeks before your move or as soon as possible.
  • Begin packing the things you use least, such as books, seasonal clothing or sports equipment, and knick-knacks.
  • When packing for a summer move, bag items that may soften in the heat, such as candles, soaps, etc.
  • If you have time use the opportunity to organize and get rid of outdated items you do not use.
  • Use strong cardboard boxes—small boxes for heavier items, large boxes for lighter items. Avoid over-packing.
  • Buy more packing tape than you think you will need, you will most likely end up using it.
  • Lay your books flat in their box, alternating bindings so they stack evenly.
  • To stay neat, concentrate on packing one room at a time, stacking finished boxes in a corner against the wall.
  • Use your computer to print out labels indicating each box’s source room, and attach them to each completed box. Also, you can use a black marker to label the box (this also saves valuable unpacking time).
  • Pack alarm clocks, medication, valuables, and urgent items in a separate, clearly marked box or bag. Make copies of important documents such as wills, contracts, and passports.
  • Wrap nuts and bolts in clearly labeled plastic bags.
  • Empty dressers completely (furniture tends to break more easily if not emptied first).
  • One less-known item: most movers will not reassemble baby cribs, for important safety reasons. So, make sure to have a knowledgeable person ready to do so.
  • Keep a complete inventory list of everything to be moved. Jot down serial numbers on all electronic equipment.
  • Flammables like aerosol cans, paints, or gasoline should be carefully disposed of beforehand.
  • Transport perishables like frozen foods, products, or plants on your own.
  • Soaps, sprays, polishes, and medicine should not be placed in the same box as food. Heavy items should not be packed with dishware.

  25. Place china in the box standing upright (do not lay flat)
  26. Once the base is full, create another cushion layer over the china
  27. Start a new row with lighter china, wrapping them the same way
  28. Continue this until the box is full
  29. All bottles should be taped closed, then wrapped with packing paper
  30. Stemware should be wrapped as follows:

  37. Name, the room it belongs in, contents, and handling (fragile, heavy, this side up, etc)
  38. Create your own inventory list of important items inside each box. This will help keep track of your boxes in the event that one is misplaced or lost.
  39. Use your personal inventory list as a reference guide when unpacking
