Moving is such a hassle especially when you don’t the first thing about packing. It can take you a few hours if you are organised enough or days if you’re all over the place. Planning and preparation always help smooth things over so that when the moving date comes, you have everything under control. At Good Green Moving, we offer packing tips to make the process a lot less cluttered. Our Petaluma movers offer valuable information on how to create an effective moving plan. Even if you are not a professional mover, there are tools that are helpful when preparing for your move.
1. Packing Tape
Packing tapes are essential when you need to pack and store a lot of things. They can come in handy when you need to be extra secure with your valuable items. They are also good in a crisis. They can cover a hole temporarily while boxes are in transit. You can tape mason jars together to keep them in place.
- Measuring Tape
A measuring tape is an important tool to have if you want to be precise with everything. When you call up Petaluma movers for an estimate, it is good to know the exact measurements of your furniture and appliances. Small, medium and large don’t cut it anymore. If we know exactly the size of the items that we will move for you, then the more accurate the estimate will be.
- Scissors and Cutters
Scissors and cutters are two of the most important tools to have for moving. If you need to adjust a storage box to close it properly, you have to use scissors. If you want to fix the padding for your breakables, cutters are the way to go. You will need scissors and cutters when you start to unpack. You are not expected to remove every packing tape from the boxes. You can use scissors to quickly unpack your belonging while still maintaining the integrity of the boxes for future use.
- Straps, Ropes, and Strings
Straps, ropes, and strings will come in handy when hauling large pieces of furniture or appliances. You can use ropes to tie more than two boxes together so that nothing falls over during the drive to your new home. When movers unload your things, can help secure your appliances.
