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.

Where Can I Donate My Unwanted Stuff?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Where Can I Donate My Unwanted Stuff?

If you’re like most people, the amount of stuff that you have just seems to sneak up on you, year after year. One of the upsides of moving is that it forces you to downsize and get rid of stuff; but some people may be wondering what exactly do you do with the piles that you accumulate. Here are a few ideas for getting rid of the most common categories of items.

 

Clothing, Bedding, Furniture and Kitchen Supplies

 

Thrift stores are a perennial choice and still one of the best places to deposit unwanted items. Some people like consignment shops, especially for purchasing vintage clothing and higher quality furniture, but also because consignment shops offer a discount or a portion of the selling price back when the item is sold. An option many people don’t think about is shelters, which would gladly take gently used items.

 

Books, Magazines and Office Supplies

 

Used bookstores will almost always gladly accept a book, so long as the book is in good condition and free of mold and other poor conditions. Office supplies are best given to your local school or daycare center, especially for items like crayons, safety scissors and glue. Magazines can be donated to a nursing home or local salon.

 

Computers and Electronics

 

Before you donate a computer, either remove the hard drive or erase the information on it! Again, local schools will appreciate donations of computers. Shelters also like having donations of electronics, as they are given to families to help them get back on their feet. Some non-profit agencies also accept broken electronics, which are then fixed and shipped to where they are needed.

 

Just be sure before you donate that the items you want to get rid of are clean, free of rips, stains, and holes. Anything in good condition and free of parasites; no one wants to wear your “Smith Family Reunion 1990” t-shirt or bring bedbugs or termites from your wooden china hutch into their homes! By simply calling the A To Z Express Movers in Manchester, New Hampshire, downsizing some of your things can make the chore of moving just a little bit easier for everyone.
