Dear valued clients,
The moving industry is categorized as an essential industry business, therefore we inform you that U. Santini Moving and Storage is open for business during our regular hours. We continue to operate using all safety precautions concerning the COVID-19 situation. Our moving professionals are adapting the operations in order to meet your moving-related needs while practicing CDC and WHO recommendations. We provide our movers with hand sanitizers and gloves and practice social distancing to protect both our clients and crew members. During this state of an emergency, our number one priorities are the health and safety of employees and customers. We make sure to: • Practice all State/Federal/CDC and World Health Organization guidelines in order to prevent contagion in our community.
• Keep the distance of 6 feet from clients due to social distancing recommendations.
• Use hand sanitizers and regularly wash hands whenever the running water is available.
• Disinfect often-touched surfaces frequently (break room areas, restroom surfaces, countertops, door handles).
• Continuously ventilate the spaces we work in.
• Sanitize moving trucks after the job is completed.
• Provide masks (if they are available) and gloves for our employees to handle clients' possessions.
• Guarantee transparent communication with our employees - they will self-quarantine if even the slightest indications of flu-like symptoms appear.
In order to keep everyone safe and healthy, we make sure to adhere to the guidelines set forth by authorities and health officials. During this coronavirus crisis, our clients will be informed of any possible changes in our work by the members of U. Santini Moving and Storage.

PACKING

PACKING

Proper packing is essential to a successful move.  Packing is an extremely important aspect of relocation and if you leave packing to the last minute you’re almost certain to regret it. There are plenty of boxes and containers specifically designed for packing all sorts of items from dishes to sports equipment. It’s wise to consider using these specially designed boxes or utilizing the help of a moving professional to do the packing for you. If you choose to pack it all up yourself though, be sure to wrap everything carefully and tightly and place lighter items on top of the heavier ones. It’s an invaluable idea to mark the outside of all boxes with a short list of their inner contents or the name of the room that is their final destination while doing your own packing.

Focus on the emotional part of your move and leave the heavy lifting to us.

We have a new packing guide in the works and will make it available to you soon.  So, as always, check back with us frequently!……

Below are a few suggestions if you decide to do the packing yourself, however please know that we will still be there to advise you and answer your questions:

  • Get more strong packing boxes than you think you will need.
  • Reinforce the bottom of each box with at least one strip of packing tape.
  • Pack boxes firmly to prevent the contents from shifting during your move.
  • Use clean, white crumpled up paper for padding.
  • Separate all items with paper to prevent scratches.
  • Place heavier items in the bottom of the box and lighter items on top.
  • Use towels, linens, curtains, etc. to pad boxes of fragile items.
  • Remove lids from ceramics and wrap each separately.
  • Seal open bottles with tape before packing to avoid spills.
  • Use an extra large box for lampshades and cushion them well.
  • Remove bulbs before packing lamps.
  • Put hardware from disassembled furniture together in plastic bag.
  • Leave clothes in dresser drawers and hang clothes in wardrobe boxes.
  • Wrap very small items in bright colored tissue so they won’t get lost.
  • Place pictures in boxes between sheets and blankets for added protection.
  • Plates and record albums should be packed on end vertically – not stacked.
  • Remove bulbs before packing lamps.
  • Make a master list of all household items and personal belongings.
  • Number boxes when they are packed and sealed.
  • Label each box and its room destination.
  • Write the contents of numbered boxes on your master list.
  • Pack room-by-room, keeping similar items together.

When moving and packing take these simple precautions to protect your appliances from damage during your move.

  • Clean and dry washing machine. Disconnect and drain hoses.
  • Unplug clothes dryer and clean the lint screen.
  • Remove grease from the stove top/range/oven.
  • Dry out refrigerator and freezer, especially those with an icemaker.
  • Remove any glass trays from appliances. Pack them separately.
  • Clean small appliances, fill empty space with paper and wrap separately.
