What is The Best Way To Pack My Clothes For A Move? Part 2

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What is The Best Way To Pack My Clothes For A Move? Part 2

Moving can be an exciting chance for refreshing, but it also comes with a lot of responsibilities, to-do lists and packing. Packing clothing may not be anyone’s idea of fun, but if you followed the steps in part one, you should have less to pack and keep. If you’re looking for some help with moving, let A-Z Express Movers take the stress away for you! With movers in Lowell, MA, and areas in NH, we are your go-to business when it comes to moving. Here are a few tips when it comes to packing up clothing items.

Think Vacation

Mostly everyone has pieces of luggage that have been sitting in the bottom of their closets, waiting to go on one more vacation. Instead of buying another box to stuff clothing in, you can use the empty space inside your rolling suitcases to pack clothing! But be sure to set aside one or two suitcases filled with clothing that you will need in the first week or so after your move, as you are unlikely to get your stuff unpacked in a day.

Lift And Carry

As you pack, start with the heaviest and bulkiest items on the bottom and be sure to lift the boxes every so often as you pack them. Nothing stinks more than lifting a box and injuring yourself.

Oodles Of Shoes

If you still have shoeboxes, this will speed up your organizing process much faster as you can simply stuff your shoes into the box and then stack the boxes inside a larger box. If you do not have shoeboxes, you can stuff the insides of the shoes with socks or newspaper to keep them from getting crushed. Pack the shoes separately from your clothing to keep clothing from getting dirty.

It is important to keep your clothing safe and dry when moving homes. By packing your clothing properly, you will add one less thing to your list of stresses that you do not need when moving. Give A-Z Express Movers a call today and let us help make your moving process a smooth one.

What is The Best Way To Pack My Clothes For A Move? Part 1

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What is The Best Way To Pack My Clothes For A Move? Part 1

The thought of packing up all the items in your closet, giving them to a Manchester NH moving company and having to repack them at the other end can make even the most motivated person give up in despair. However, packing clothing does not need to be the chore that it may look like. A To Z Express Movers has a team of professionals that can get the job done for you. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when packing up clothing for a move.

Cleaning Out Your Closet

This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of stuff that you longer need or wear! The rules of thumb is that if it has been more than a year since you wore it, or if it no longer fits or is at least three years out of date, then donate it to charity. Throw out ay clothing that is torn, stained or just no longer wearable. If you have lots of suits or dresses or other items that you do not want to fold, you may want to invest in a wardrobe box. These long boxes have metal bars at the top where clothing can hang from.

If you are moving cross-country, especially from a colder state up north to a warmer state down south, or vice versa, you should also donate anything that is inappropriate for the climate you’re moving to. moversnh

Sorting For Different Seasons

If you’ve already cleaned out your closet, then sorting clothing by season should be an easy task. Since you are unlikely to need them right away, starting with the out of season clothing is often the easiest task. Label the boxes with what the contents are, and you can unpack these boxes last when you get to your new home, making it more convenient for you.

 

Clothing is heavy and people tend to accumulate too much to begin with. If you haven’t worn it, used it or needed it in a few years, it’s time to get rid of it. With the free space you’ve reclaimed, your packing process should move much more smoothly! It will only help you in the end. Contact A To Z Express Movers today for more helpful tips when it comes to moving your things safely, efficiently, and conveniently.

3 Very Crucial Moving Days Tips

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 3 Very Crucial Moving Days Tips

A move is an essential part of life. Whether you’re an old pro at it or you’re moving out of your parent’s home for the first time, it can never hurt to follow these 3 major tips below to prepare for a move.

 

  1. Over preparation is key. Even if you think you have a lot of boxes and tape and newspaper, you should pick up at least a few more. Sometimes, objects don’t fit into boxes or spill over into others and the stress of packing is no time to hunt down things to pack your possessions in!
  2. Wear comfortable clothing. Wearing comfortable, closed toed shoes will save your feet should you drop something on them. Avoid wearing clothing that has ties that can unravel or loose fitting clothing that can be caught easily. If you’re planning a cross-country move, keep a set or two of clean clothing in the car with you.
  3. Make an inventory and lots of lists. Yes, lists have been regarded as boring and unnecessary for many years, but they are often essential for moving! Not only is it a good idea to have a list of your stuff to keep track of it; if the movers leave a box behind or something gets damaged, you can easily submit a claim to your insurance company. In addition, a list given to the driver with emergency contact numbers and a list given to the people helping you out will make things much easier. Preparedness is always key!

 

A person can never be really prepared for the hectic moving day itself, but with a little forethought and careful planning, you can make your moving day go much smoother. The professionals at A To Z Express Movers will guarantee that your move is as smooth and as stress-free as possible. Give us a call today, we’d be more than happy to help!
