When it comes to the stressful process of packing and moving, Office Movers NYC can help make sure that everything runs smoothly. From planning out what items will be packed first to how you’ll transport them safely, there are several important steps in making sure your move is successful. Whether you’re moving into a new home or an office, packing up all of your belongings can be overwhelming without a plan. Here are some tips on the art of packing and moving from professionals at Office Movers NYC.
1. Sort Items Before You Pack
Before diving headfirst into packing your items, take time to go through each room in your current home or office space and decide which items you want to bring with you. People often underestimate the amount of time it takes for this process, so set aside plenty of time before getting started with packing. Make piles for things you’ll keep, donate, throw away, or store in the attic or basement until after the move is complete. This will also give you an opportunity to sort through any excess clutter if needed.
2. Get Supplies
Office Movers NYC suggests stocking up on supplies such as boxes, tape, markers, and bubble wrap ahead of time so that when it’s time to start boxing up your belongings they’re readily available. It would also be helpful to get labels/stickers and create an inventory list so that once everything is packed up they can easily be identified while unpacking at the other end without having to open every box! Place heavier items like books inside smaller boxes as larger ones may become too heavy when filled completely. Ensure that all boxes are labeled clearly including their contents and which room it belongs in; this will save precious time during settling down in your new place!
3. Use Garbage Bags for Clothing
Packing clothing can oftentimes feel like a daunting task but Office Movers NYC recommends using garbage bags instead of hangers and cardboard boxes for transporting clothes from one location to another – this is especially useful when traveling long distances! Simply place each item inside a bag then seal tight with tape; if possible attach labels identifying its contents outside each bag as well for easy identification later on! Doing this ensures that everything stays neat and tidy throughout transportation plus saves precious packaging materials which otherwise would have gone unused due to lack thereof!
4. Wrap fragile items carefully
Fragile items require special care when packing as mishandling may result in damage in transit, no matter how carefully they are handled – therefore use bubble wrap when packing fragile items such as glassware, etc. and ensure maximum protection against breakage by adding extra padding around corners & edges (where possible). In addition, mark these boxes ‘FRAGILE’ on both sides & top with either permanent markers or stickers so that people carrying them know what special care should be taken when handling them!
5. Disassemble furniture where possible
To make transporting furniture easier & safer, consider disassembling pieces whenever possible; this not only reduces size but also allows for more efficient use of space within vehicles used to transport goods from points A-B. It is a good idea to take pictures before you do this – just in case you get confused afterward – and labeling the parts that go together will also help! Just remember that keeping nuts and bolts in separate bags/containers (with appropriate labeling) will make reassembly much easier than having leftover random screws all over the place later.
6 Load strategically
Once all items are sorted & ready to be loaded onto vehicles – make sure you load strategically i.e. place heavier items at the bottom (for stability) followed by lighter items at the top, whilst always maintaining a balance between the two sides. In addition, placing mattresses vertically rather than horizontally helps to save more space, thus allowing more goods to be loaded without compromising safety during transit + avoiding crushing goods underneath due to weight exerted!
7 Unload with care
Unloading goods from vehicles should always be done with care, regardless of the distance traveled – pay close attention when unloading heavier items first, followed by lighter ones, or working downwards towards the ground; avoid sudden jolts/movements when doing so, as even the slightest miscalculation could cause damage later down the line.
8 Furnishing your new home/office
Finally, after successfully arriving at the desired destination, it is now time to set up the newly purchased home or office premises according to the incoming plans laid out earlier on the pre-departure stage itself – again, label each item properly along the way to enable faster assembly processes post arrival phase, rather than wasting precious hours trying to figure things out randomly further down line.
