Moving is a challenging project. You have to pack a lot of items. Some of them are difficult to pack or need some additional effort to pack them. You can hire some of the residential movers Brooklyn has to offer and let them pack and relocate all your belongings. But if you prefer packing your items yourself here are some tips on how to pack sharp objects when moving. 

Prepare for your move

Moving to a new place is an ideal moment to declutter your home. You can get rid of all the items you don’t need. If there are some items in good condition, you can give them to some friends or family, or you can donate them to some charity organization. If you would like to keep some of the items, or if you do not have enough place in your new home, you can store them. Check storage units Brooklyn moving companies has to provide and choose the unit that suits your needs and your budget.

Let your movers pack and relocate your belongings so you can have a smooth relocation.

People usually avoid hiring moving companies because they think they will save some money but they can end up spending more. You can end up buying some wrong packing supplies. Or, buying much more than you need them and waste your money that way. A reliable moving company will have proper packing supplies and pack and safely relocate your belongings.

One of the advantages of hiring reliable movers is that your belongings will be insured. They will offer you insurance. So, in case something happens to your items, your money will be reimbursed.

Pack sharp objects when moving

If you don’t want someone else to pack your items and you have a lot of tools or kitchen knives to pack, you will need to be careful. Make sure you have appropriate packing supplies. Use bubble bags, stretch wraps, packing tape, and bundles. You will be needing a lot of these supplies. You can group your knives and sharp items by size and by sharpness. Bundle them and then use a lot of bubble bags to wrap the entire item until it is completely covered. Then you should secure it with the packing tape.

It is also suggested for packing knives that you tape them first and then wrap them into several layers of bubble bag. And repeat this for each of them. But the biggest knife you have should be wrapped and packed separately. Be careful so you don’t cut yourself when packing and pack the sharp objects as recommended so they don’t break during the move. Or even worse, if you do not pack them properly they can fall out of the bubble bag and damage other items or hurt somebody.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
