Packing up your belongings for moving and storage in Orange City, FL can seem like an overwhelming task. But there are a few packing tips that can help make the process easier and stress free.
- It is often helps to start at least a month before the movers arrive and pack just one room at a time. This helps minimize clutter and the stress of having open moving boxes throughout the house. Take your time to ensure that small items are not forgotten and are individually wrapped. Wrapping each item provides a much needed cushion that will help protect them while the moving trucks are in transit to your new home.
- Use a large black marker and clearly label each box in plain block lettering with the name of the room of where it belongs. This will help you remember where the box came from and will let the movers know which room to deliver the boxes to when your moving and storage truck from Orange City, FL arrives at the destination speeding up the unloading process. Also, chances are slim that you will remember every item that it is in every box. So be sure to write the contents of each box before sealing it. Not only will this help you remember what’s in the box, but can make filing a claim much easier if an item is lost or damaged.
- Finally, use standard moving boxes that have been designed for moving and storage. Used boxes from grocery and retail stores often lack the sturdiness to keep your items safe in moving trucks. Also, the non-standard dimensions make it difficult for our movers to stack them in the moving truck. Using standard packing boxes helps speed up the loading process and the moving company will be able to properly stack all of your items in the truck minimizing space requirements. It is our goal to provide our customers with the best possible moving service.
