Packing Tips You Should Keep in Mind

A Reliable Moving Company Shares Useful Tips

If you are moving into a new house in the next few weeks, you probably need all the help you can get. For this reason, we, as a professional moving company, have decided to share some of our best tips on how to pack for your move. Below, you can find many useful tips that will make your life easier!

Declutter
The first thing you need to do before your move, other than hiring a moving company, should be to declutter. Go through all your possessions – from the cutlery to the socks, and decide which items you will keep. Be really hard on yourself and get rid of everything you are not using and doesn’t serve a purpose, unless it is memorabilia. When you are done, you will have a lot fewer things to pack, which will make the move a lot easier.

Get supplies
You cannot start packing before gathering all the packing supplies you will need. Collect different boxes and even purchase some if you can’t find any laying around in your house or if your friends and family don’t have any to give you. Also, collect as many newspapers as you can and purchase bubble wrap. To pack the furniture, you are going to need either blankets or special padding. In any case, you will have to think about every single thing you need to pack and get the necessary supplies.

Come up with a scheme
The best way to start the packing is with the items you will not need anytime soon. So, if it’s currently winter, you will not need your beach stuff and summer clothing, which means that you should pack them first.

If you need the help of a moving company when you finish with the packing, you should turn to Alexandria Econo Van Lines LLC. We can help anyone in the Alexandria, VA area move, and we expect your calls at (202) 644-8206!

Tips on How to Avoid Moving Company Scams

Today, it seems anyone that has a van can put on a company sticker, list their number in the phone book, and promote themselves as a true and reputable moving company.

The internet offers the anonymity for scam artists. With the laws on a moving company protocol being a bit murky, disputes between clients and removal firms are becoming all too common, and usually get into a he said/she said situation, with no contract or paper trail to find out when moving scam was done.
