We make sure you and your belongings settle in a new place of residence as soon as possible. As one of the most renowned moving and storage Brooklyn companies, we ensure to make each customer happy.
Prepare your medicine cabinet prior to packing
Don’t just throw an entire medicine cabinet in a truck. You don’t want to end up with broken or leaked products and have troubles while unpacking after the move. Also, keep in mind you are going to need essentials from the medicine cabinet before, during, and after the move.
Don’t forget to buy the necessary moving supplies:
- durable moving boxes
- packing paper
- bubble wraps
- zip-top bags
- packing tape
- permanent markers
Dispose of expired products and medications
First and foremost, throw away all expired medications, shampoos, and other products. Next, check the products that changed their color or consistency. The more you declutter, the less burden you have. However, make sure to prepare all bottles for recycling. It’s equally important to reduce waste while moving.
Pack each product separately
Firmly close medications and caps of other products. Seal them with packing tape. After that, wrap them in layers of packing paper and bubble wraps. Secure them additionally with packing tape cross-wise. Next, add extra padding to the boxes with cloths or sponges. Put the products inside and add extra layers of packing paper or bubble wraps. Be careful not to put too many bottles into the same box or container. It’s better to use boxes and containers that differ in size. That way, they are easier to pack and store. Boxes with medications and toiletries should stay with you nearby, while bulkier items go inside the moving truck Brooklyn companies offer.
Usually, small office movers in Brooklyn specialize in packing. They are capable to handle the packing of every item on your behalf. Keep in mind that not every item or product needs the same packing method. In addition, sometimes it’s better
Make sure to protect towels and sheets
Relocations often get messy. Therefore, it’s important to protect towels and sheets from the bathroom while packing your medicine cabinet. Pack them separately and secure them so they don’t get dirty. Fold the towels and place them inside larger zip-top bags. Put them inside the moving boxes or containers and secure the top with packing tape. Rest assured your towels, medications, and toiletries will survive the move if you complete the packing step by step.
