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of thumb is that if it has been more than a year since you wore it, or if it no longer fits or is at least three years out of date, then donate it to charity.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!

What Not To Take On Moving Day

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What Not To Take On Moving Day

When moving to a new house, you want to pack everything you can. However, did you know that there are certain items that, by law, movers cannot put on the truck to bring to your new home?

Prevent Accidents

When moving, be sure to drain all oil and fuel from lawn and snow blower equipment. Nobody wants to move to a new home to discover that the mower snapped a hose and oil is everywhere! Similarly, propane tanks should be removed from barbeque equipment and discarded. Other items, like batteries, must be removed and disposed of. Batteries are part of the prohibited items listed below.

Prohibited Items

These items are, in fact, illegal for movers to carry onto their trucks because they are hazardous, corrosive, explosive or all of them combined. This list includes, but is not limited to:

 ·      Acid

·      Batteries

·      Car oil

·      Charcoal

·      Gasoline

·      Matches

·      Fertilizer

·      Cleaning fluids

·      Ammunition

·      Fireworks

·      Propane tanks

·      Loaded weapons

Perishables

If you’re moving cross-country, it’s best to eat or throw away any food in your fridge or freezer before it goes bad. Seal the fridge well with a good amount of duct tape, as it will both prevent children from getting in and the doors swinging out to damage property. Be sure the fridge is empty, turned off and the doors are kept open for at least 24 hours to give it time to dry out and to prevent mold and odor.

How Do I Get Rid Of These Items?

The best way is to contact your local recycling center for help. There are some places that you can drop your propane tanks and fuel off. For food, drop any unused containers off at your local soup kitchen or food bank, or give the food to your neighbors or relatives.

By following these tips, you can prevent any accidents or harm to people and property caused by a leaking container or an accidental spill, making for a much smoother, stress-free move.
