No matter how excited you may be about moving, it can be a stressful and hectic time. And while moving companies like us will do everything we can to protect your goods during transport, there are a few things you can do to help ensure a smooth move or relocation from your home or business in Sanford, FL.
Keep the irreplaceable safe.
Anything that holds great sentimental value or would otherwise be impossible to replace if lost or damaged should be taken with you. Items like framed photographs or other mementos should be wrapped in bubble wrap while smaller items can be tucked away in desk drawers or cabinets. Also, make sure the moving company can handle expensive decorative art, large framed artwork and pianos if you have these items. You can also ask the mover about optional replacement insurance for your valuable items.
Prep your refrigerator.
To make your life easier, prepare your refrigerator for moving day. Empty and defrost the fridge, towel dry it, and thoroughly clean it at least 24 hours before the moving truck is scheduled to arrive. This will be one less thing to worry about on moving day, and it'll help prevent odors and bacteria from developing during transport.
Wrap and pack.
To prevent items in boxes from shifting during transport, take extra care when packing. Use small and medium boxes rather than trying to stuff as much as possible into large boxes. Wrap each item in paper or bubble wrap to form a cushion then place it inside the box. Fill any holes or air pockets with packing peanuts or paper to prevent items from moving inside the box. Be careful not to overstuff the box. BC Moving and Storage also provides packing and/or unpacking as an optional service in Sanford, FL.
