Washington, District of Columbia -
McLean, VA based MyProMovers has published a blog post that aims to help their community learn how to pack their belongings most efficiently for a move. Given how stressful moving can be, the company considers it their mission to minimize this at every point. This even extends to those who would prefer to pack up their items by themselves. Learn more by reading the full article here: How to Pack Your Home.
In the majority of cases, the company recommends that homeowners hire a professional (and reputable) moving service to assist with the move. In addition to allowing the customer to focus exclusively on transporting themselves and their most valuable and personal items (such as important documents and so on) while a team of movers handles their household goods, they will find that they have fewer challenges that need to be addressed personally. However, for whatever reason, this option is not always possible, so the company wishes to help their community get better at packing by themselves. They add that some homeowners may want to adopt some of their moving tips even when they hire professionals.
The first tip the company shares is to make a list of all the items in the house. On moving day, tensions can mount drastically, so a list will help homeowners avoid having to hold everything in memory while they manage or oversee the move itself. A list can also help them determine which items need to be prioritized — fragile or valuable items will need to be packed separately in appropriate containers so they do not suffer damage during the trip. It should also be noted that certain items will take longer to pack than others, so this should be factored into the schedule.
MyProMovers recommends a variety of packing options be used for certain classes of items. To preserve them during the move, for instance, the company says that dish packs should be used for dishes, bubble wrap should be used for breakable items and so on. Wardrobe cartons can be used for clothes since they are less vulnerable. Finally, they also advise the use of markers and tape for DIY labels (as well as to seal the boxes).
The next part of the blog post touches on various items and the care that needs to go into their packing. As the company warns, even items that may be considered less prone to damage should be packed in a certain way to avoid unnecessary loss during the trip. However, if a homeowner is unable to commit as much time, personally, to making sure their belongings are packed right, the company states that their team is always ready to provide their expert assistance, as many customers have already discovered.
Reviews for the Virginia moving company can help new customers understand what they stand to gain by working with a team of professional movers whose primary goal is the safety of their belongings. In their 5-Star Google review, Donna Z. states that, “I cannot say enough about these guys. We used them last year, and the experience was so effortless that I saved their information and used them again this year! Zai and Hugo were fast, efficient, strong and so polite and professional! They went above and beyond for us. They do not stand around watching the clock tick running your bill up. They have moving down to a science. Will absolutely use these guys in the future. Shout out to Daniel for helping me schedule the move and answering all of my questions.”
MyProMovers states that customers should attempt to give their movers as comprehensive an idea of what kind of items they will be moving (in advance). This is true for virtually all professional movers since their estimates are likely to be based on this information. On one hand, customers will find that they are much less likely to receive a surprise moving bill as a result of unexpected items or extra weight in a shipment. On the other hand, their move will be much more efficient and remain on schedule since their movers will arrive fully prepared to deal with everything.
Customers may get in touch with Tursun Alkau of MyProMovers to learn more about their services or request an estimate. They are also encouraged to read the helpful advice in the company’s blog post if they are unfamiliar with moving and would like some professional insight. The company can be reached via phone, email and their social media platforms.
