Top Tips To Protect Your Items When You Move

by | Sep 3, 2023

You may think a move will be a simple, if laborious, task, but moving is more complicated than simple relocation. Items can become easily damaged in a move if you do not properly plan.Here are a few ways you can protect your belongings during a move.

Professional Moving Tips for Protecting Your Belongings

These professional moving tips will help you to protect your belongings during your move.

Make Sure Furniture is Clean

If you plan to wrap your furniture, make sure to dust it and clean it first. Particles and dirt left on the furniture and sealed in by wrapping could scratch or otherwise damage more fragile items.

Buy Proper Wrapping Materials

Make sure you are fully equipped to wrap your furniture. Bubble wrap and tape work well for mirrors or other fragile items. Blankets may be necessary for older furniture which needs more protection. You may also want to invest in plastic wrap and cardboard sheets to separate and protect items.

Disassemble Furniture

You will want to dismantle any furniture that can be broken down to make the move easier. This could be as simple as removing knobs and drawers, or it could consist of taking apart the dining room table. Most furniture that can be dismantled and reassembled is made that way in order to provide easy relocation. Make sure you keep all of the parts in an organized manner for easy reassembly.

Plan Your Packing Strategy Appropriately

This includes your vehicle and packing boxes. You want to make sure that you organize your items appropriately for easy unpacking, while still ensuring they fit and make sense in the boxes or crates you use. Once your items are organized the way they will be transported, you then want to create a packing plan for your moving van. It’s very important to plan ahead when loading the vehicle so that you can make the most of your space without causing
damage to any of your belongings.

Hire Professional Movers

The more experience the people handling your belongings have, the more protected they will be. Hire professional movers and/or packers for your move if you want to have the best protection available.

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.
