How to prepare for the arrival of Moving Services

You are going to change your place of residence, and you have already found a new home, what should you do next? And then you should contact Moving Services. If you hire professionals who deal with moving every day, you can significantly reduce the time required for this process and save a lot of nerve cells. Nevertheless, a lot depends on you, too. Let’s take a look at what exactly needs to be done before the moving company arrives.

Start of the meeting

First of all, you shouldn’t put everything off until the last minute. It is better to start packing in advance. How long it will take depends on many factors. Most of all, the number of things and the size of the family. You should start with what you don’t plan to use in the near future. 

You also need to think about the list of things you can get rid of in advance. You don’t have to throw everything in the trash; good things can be given away to those in need. You shouldn’t waste your energy and money on transporting things you don’t really need.

Packing your belongings

Moving Services-  will help you with packing and disassembling furniture, but there are those who want to do it on their own. In this case, you will need a lot of boxes, sticky tape, bubble wrap, pacts, paper (newspapers, napkins, etc.). Thick cloth and rope can also be useful. 

All boxes and packages should be labeled. It is worth separating them depending on the room. That is, there should be separate packages from the kitchen, separate packages from the bedroom, living room, etc. A thorough description will be helpful, which you will appreciate when you unpack. Similar things should be in the same box. That is, one box will contain clothes, another will contain shoes, and the third will contain dishes. You should make notes on the boxes about anything that might be useful. For example, fragile items.

As for furniture, it is better to disassemble it. This will make it easier and faster to load it into the car, and it will fit through the doorways. But it is not always advisable to do this with small items. If you don’t even disassemble the furniture, you should remove all loose parts (for example, glass shelves) and tape all moving elements.

Where to get the packaging

All the materials you may need when moving can be purchased at Moving Services. If you have a lot of time, you can save money on buying boxes. Often, stores have unnecessary packaging. However, this option is not suitable for everyone.

It’s worth noting that if you choose a comprehensive service, packing may be included. Of course, it’s not difficult to put something personal in a box, but what about, for example, a refrigerator or TV? Not everyone can pack them correctly, because these appliances need additional protection. Otherwise, dents, chips, and scratches may occur. It’s worth remembering how appliances are packed in stores: foam and bubble wrap. These materials help to deliver the item in one piece. The same principle should apply to moving. So, in addition to boxes, you will need other packing material.

When packing, pay attention to fragile items, such as glass, and the edges of furniture.

Sorting your belongings

Even if you entrust the work of packing to the employees of a moving company, it is still better to sort things yourself. Of course, the movers will try to do everything properly and even label the boxes. For example, they will indicate that one of them contains things from the hallway closet, the other contains dishes from the kitchen, etc. However, no one knows better than you how it will be more convenient for you to find your things later. And this will determine the comfort of living in a new place for the first few weeks or even months.

It is also worth making a plan for how the furniture will be arranged in the new apartment, which will help you sort things out, not as it was before, but as it will be in the future. In addition, this will be taken into account by the logistics when loading and unloading. So, the time for sorting things will be significantly reduced.

Items of immediate need

It is worth packing a separate box, bag or package with things that may be needed at any time. You should pack it yourself and keep it with you. It must contain:

– Keys to your old and new home;

– Important documents;

– Money and bank cards;

– Medicines and personal care products;

– A change of clothes, etc.

Thus, the key to moving without any problems is to sort your belongings well and to trust the moving professionals
