Moving can be stressful, we try to lesson the stress and hassle by giving some helpful moving tips. Whether making the move alone or with an experienced moving company like ourselves ;) or professional movers NYC, these tips make the moves smoother and more efficient.
MAKE A LIST
Making a list of valuables and maybe taking photos if you are moving your self, if not we do take pictures prior to wrapping and moving antiques and valuables. You could also make a list of items that are needed for the move. Make a list of things needed to be accomplished between the move; i.e. changing utilities, receiving/returning keys , inspections ect.
Lists help keep things in order and besides the stress of the move, having a stranger living off from your utilities for months could be a costly mistake for a novice mover. I found a great blog with many more great tips, here's the link:
We are open for questions so give us a call!
SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF
Declutter is the best tip we can give. Donate those old unused books and toys. Hold items and see if you have sentiments, and make tough decisions. Less items to pack= less boxes= less expense= less stress! We do offer assistance with hauling junk and finding donation centers.
GET STURDY, UNIFORM PACKING SUPPLIES
Dont skimp if you have valuables and sentimental items. Reusing boxes is environmentally smart but some items do require the utmost care. Proper packaging is one of our best tips. This saves money and hassle with having to contact insurance.
PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF
Packing the basics such as personal items , valuables and necessities saves some hassle and stress when in a new environment. Putting the items that are needed for the first few days in a separate box that goes with you personally, incase of a carrier delay or an issue with the move you would be prepared. A professional mover can accommodate you with supplies prior or even send packers.
