Items that require extra packing


Whenever you are thinking about some of the items that require extra packing, you should think about your fragile items. Chances are that you will not be able to pack some of your finest items without having help. For this reason, it might be a really good idea to hire some of the finest professional movers around. They can help you out for sure. In any case, we have prepared a short guide for you. Feel free to read it until the end and to use it for your upcoming move. So, without any other ado, let us dive straight in!

What are the items that require extra packing?

There are some items you will need to pack really carefully. However, before you start you will have to make sure that you visit eBay and get all the things you need for your packing process. Professional moving boxes are an amazing idea. Even more, packing supplies and materials are a must. So, make sure that you get all of that before you begin your packing process. Believe us, it will help you a lot.

Then, you will need to:

  • Split your items into several categories. Some items are easier to pack than others. However, some items are essential and no one will touch them during your move even if you hire the finest local movers Brooklyn offers. You will have to handle those and no one else. Secondly, make sure to split your items into “easy to pack” and “hard to pack” categories. This will help you out a lot.
  • Sort out everything. After you split your items into categories, you will have to sort them out. For instance, you will set your fine art into the “hard to pack” category and your socks into the “easy to pack” one. After that, pack everything that is easy first, but save your good packing boxes. Believe us, you will need them.
  • Call for help if you need it. Find some of the finest affordable movers Brooklyn offers. Then, ask about packing services. If you cannot pack on your own, it might be a good idea to have someone help you out. Better safe than sorry, right?

What else should you do?

You will also have to think about storage and storage space before you move. You can find some cheap storage NYC offers almost anywhere. All you need to know is where to look. However, when you move your items to storage, make sure that your fragile items are protected well. Otherwise, you might lose them inside storage that is not professional. Thinking about this one will save you a lot of time and money.

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.

How soon should I schedule my move?

It's a good idea to book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move. If you're moving during the holidays or in the summer, it's best to schedule it 12 weeks ahead.

Do you provide packing supplies?

Yes, we do. Along with the necessary boxes and packing materials for your move, we offer various 'Saver' packages tailored to the size of your home. If you don't use all the boxes you purchased, you can return them to our team after the move, and we'll refund the unused portion.
