How to choose the proper movers?

There are things to consider and go through when choosing the movers that will be in charge of moving from Atlanta to Brooklyn your belongings. There are various international moving companies NYC can offer to you, so you will have to know how to choose the proper one. After you set you budget limit, you can start listing all the options you have in that price range. The second important factor is to choose only those companies which have good ratings and feedback. Read carefully reviews and try to imagine what kind of service they have, are they professional enough and if it is the right moving company for you and your needs. You can see the negative comments and their actions, and it will be easier to decide.

Next step is for sure talking with them directly. Ask for their previous experience and check if they have the license. Avoid hiring them if they don’t have one. Also, check out the price a few more times and ask directly if you can expect some extra costs and how much would they be. Do not hesitate about asking them any questions that you want to know. Try not to rush with the decision. After the meetings with the companies, put both advantages and disadvantages on one paper. That’s how you will make a decision easier. By realizing your own needs, you will see which company suits you the most.

Storage units you can use when moving from Atlanta to Brooklyn

Once you have chosen your movers, it is time for packing. You are moving long-distance, so it is preferable if you leave your old furniture and bigger belongings behind, and consider buying a new one. But, if you don’t want to do that, and still want to keep it safe somewhere, there is a solution. You can use storage units for storing. This way, you get to take everything with you, use the new furniture and still keep the old one in case you might need it again. You can even find on-site storage containers and have them really close. But this is more expensive than the normal storage. Also, climate controlled ones are the best, since your belongings are the safest there.

For packing things up, you can find moving boxes Brooklyn movers can offer, and prepare everything for the move, and for the store.  Just remember to wrap everything nicely and to secure each item in addition to prevent any damage and breakage. It is the same rule for packing things you will relocate into your new apartment, and for the items you will store in your storage. Only thing different is for the wooden furniture. Don’t use any kind of plastic wraps such as bubble wrap. It will produce moist and your furniture might be destroyed. Instead, use the cover blankets made for this occasion. Remeber that before the packing, you should clean everything perfectly! When arranging your storage, make sure you use the same box sixes, and to leave enough free space. You will want to be able to approach your items and avoid mess when searching for something.

Don’t forget an essential box!

When you are moving from Atlanta all the way to Brooklyn, you should prepare one essential box. It can happen that the movers are late with delivering your belongings, so be prepared. You can find online some plastic reusable moving boxes and store there everything you think you might need in first few days. Clothes, toiletries, quick food to make, essential dishes. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you will need it for sure, it’s just to have it as a back up plan!
