If you have a big move coming up, you probably want to work with full-service movers to ensure the job is done as well as possible. But whether you’re planning on packing up your belongings yourself or hiring professionals, you should prepare for your move ahead of time. Careful preparation will help you protect your home as you pack up your belongings and ensure that everything ends up in its proper place.
In the video here, professional movers go through the most important parts of the moving preparation process. Before they begin to pack up a house, they take time to organize and mark items based on their destination. They also take time to protect the floors and stair banisters from the effects of moving heavy furniture around the house to get it packed up. They organize all of their packing materials in a central location and also create several packing zones throughout the house for efficiency. In the end, they are able to handle the job quickly without causing damage because of their careful preparation.
Before you move, consider asking movers about their process for packing up a house and the materials they recommend. If you prepare ahead of time, your move will go as smoothly as possible.
