Packing & Shipping
Packing for a move can be challenging, but if handled correctly, it can actually be quite easy.
The most important thing you need to know about the process is that its success depends heavily on organization. So if you want to pack with ease, you should take heed of the packing tips below.
- Decide whether you want to pack yourself or avail of the packing services of a professional New York moving company. Opt for the former only if you know exactly how and what to pack, and just as importantly, what not to pack.
Some items are considered hazardous and, for safety reasons, can't be transported. Perishable items, on the other hand, must be discarded before your move. Contact Mover New York for more packing tips or to ask about our packing services
- Before packing, check if you have enough packing materials and moving supplies (moving boxes, wrapping paper, adhesive tape, plastic bags, etc.) to complete the task as quickly and expertly as possible. Remember that it's always better to have more than less.
Moving boxes vary in shape and size, depending on what they are built to hold. Make sure that you have boxes of all types at hand so that each of your possessions can be properly packed. We at Mover New York can provide you with these boxes and various other packing and shipping supplies.
- Prepare a checklist of all the items you plan to ship, even if you hired your NYC mover to pack for you. Begin packing your belongings around two months before moving day, starting with the items you won't be needing before your departure.
Valuable items like jewelry or important documents should be kept with you, not shipped with the rest of your property.
When you're organized, packing is not only easier to handle – it can even be fun!
- Once you begin, remember to number and/or label your moving boxes. Prepare a packing list that specifies all box numbers and labels, as well as their respective contents. This careful documentation will make the process of unpacking much easier.
Always keep track of the items that have already been packed, and those that still need to be packed.
When you're organized, packing can be easy to handle and – believe it or not – it can even be fun!
