Pick a place in your home for packing only mirrors

It’s important to pack everything perfectly. And with mirrors, you need to be extremely careful. That’s why it’s important to make sure you do your work. But with the fact that when you’re relocating your home is a mess, you want to ensure that you don’t break your mirrors. That’s why any long-distance moving companies New York will suggest to you that it’s best to pick a place for packing your mirrors only. Above all, this will avoid all the potential problems that can happen in this delicate situation.  

Make sure that the mirror doesn’t wiggle around in the box

The integrity of the mirror is always going to be the most important part of the packing process. That’s why you won’t ever waste packing materials when it comes to a successful job. However big or small your mirror might be, you want it to have as few wiggle spaces as possible. Be it that the mirror is going into one of the storage companies NYC or you’re moving it to a new home, it’s still important to keep it safe and sound at all times. And using packing paper and other materials will ensure you’re doing a good job.

Packing mirrors when moving? Don’t forget to label them properly

If there’s one way that you can make a mistake it’s by not labeling both your mirror and boxes. Firstly, you want to make sure that you tape an ”X” on the glass part of your mirror. By doing so you will help at least avoid mishaps during transport. On top of that, any BBB-approved mover will insist that you have to label your box with the mirrors as fragile. Of course, this is to make the whole loading and unloading, and unpacking process easier. It’s a small step that can be crucial to success.

There’s nothing worse than having many fragile and delicate items to pack and love. That’s because they can really take a lot of your time and attention. However, with our tips on packing mirrors when moving, we can guarantee that you won’t have the headaches that some other people might come across. Just make sure that you have everything available and approach it step by step. The task is much easier than it seems and we’re sure you’ll handle it perfectly.

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.
