Making all the Right Moves
When you’re packing for a move, you might want to ask yourself if you should pack it yourself or hire a professional to do if for you.
In many of our moves, most of us never use professionals to pack our things. Others swear by packing professionals, claiming they’re worth every penny. But if you feel more comfortable packing yourself or you just don’t see any value of someone else packing your things, then use these tips below directly from the moving professionals to make sure your stuff arrives at your new home without cracks, scrapes or permanent damage.
What Should Be Packed?
It’s best to pack one room at a time. Have a compete list of the contents in each room and mark each box carefully so you know where things are. Heavier items go in the bottom, lighter things on top.
If you have specialty items or items that are worth a lot of money, it might be worth it to hire professionals to pack them properly. Chandeliers, large glass pieces (sculptures, over-sized mirrors and glass top tables), and some fine antique furnishings that may just need to be properly padded. Major appliances also require special care.
