So, why even write a blog post about it? Because there are various ways to do it! They are worth talking (or writing) about because they can save you time, space, and packing material – and they can even help protect your fragile items. So, let’s have a look!

The simple way of packing pillows

  • Do you have a few big, clean trash bags at hand? Then you are basically good to go! Pack the pillows in trash bags and close the bags with a secure knot or a piece of string. It’s quick, and simple, and you can even use the filled bags as additional cushioning inside the moving van.
  • Alternatively, stuff the pillows in a moving box. This is pretty easy as well and has the benefit of the boxes being stackable.
  • If you pack several pillows in a box, you can stick fragile items like small mirrors or picture frames between them. This creates a literal “cushioning” effect. If you choose to do this, make sure to clearly mark the box accordingly.
  • If you have smaller pillows, you can use them as cushions for/barriers between items in other boxes, for example, on the bottom of a box that contains china, glasses, etc.
  • Vaccuum-sealed space-saver bags are an additional option that not only keeps your pillows clean but also allows for some space-saving due to the vacuum effect.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
