How to prepare for moving to another apartment or house? an apartment move is comparable to a natural disaster in the minds of many people. It is clear why many people look at the prospect of changing the address with an inner shudder. How to avoid reasons for unnecessary frustration, save time, nerves, and even money? Global Gentle Movers are ready to share some very simple and helpful tips.

Where to start preparing for the move?

You should start with good preparation for the move. It can be divided into 2 parts: organizational issues and the actual preparation of things for moving to a new address. The main recommendation for this stage is to start in advance. It would be great if you have a few weeks left.

When is the best time to move?

We recommend you schedule a move on a weekday if possible. For obvious reasons, it is not so easy to find a car and movers or book a move with a moving company on weekends or holidays. Especially if it is the end of the month…Those who have experienced changes in their rent are actively moving during this period.

What do you need for packing things?

Basic packing supplies that will be needed are tape, bubble wrap, plastic wrap… Cardboard boxes are also a must! They are the most suitable containers for moving. Pay attention to the quality of the boxes. You must make sure that the box will withstand your move. Moreover, we do not recommend buy boxes that are too large. They can be too heavy to be loaded and unloaded. It will be a shame if the box suddenly remains without the bottom and all the contents …

In what order should I prepare things?

Start with the contents of the back shelves. Most likely, all of these things you use rarely and can easily do without them in the days remaining before the move. Actually, being in demand is the main criterion. Follow it until you are left with the bare essentials. You can pack it just a couple of hours before moving, just do not forget to mark the packaging accordingly so that you can quickly find and start and use at a new place. Special attention and time will be required to prepare for the transportation of fragile and valuable things – for example, family porcelain, expensive household appliances, and, of course, pieces of furniture. That is why it is better to start in advance.

Why should you contact a professional moving company?

We would strongly recommend considering this option, especially if you have a long and difficult journey. Do not think about the price, just call us and we will give you a preliminary estimate. It is for free and will take no more than 10 minutes!!

Moving with professionals is worth it. They provide a comprehensive service that will take away the headaches associated with preparing for the move and will allow you to focus on other, possibly more important things. All of the above wisdom will no longer be your concern.

Moreover, professional companies operating under a contract take material responsibility for the safety of the cargo. Renting a truck and movers may not be profitable at all. Even if it seems to you that you have taken into account all the payment terms, the final bill will still be much higher than what you expected. At the same time, you do not receive any guarantees. Call Global Gentle Movers and enjoy our services and reasonable prices!

    I cannot recommend this moving company enough! From start to finish, they went above and beyond to make my move as stress-free and easy as possible. From the moment I contacted them, their customer service was outstanding. They were friendly, patient, and answered all my questions thoroughly, putting me at ease and giving me confidence that my move was in good hands. On moving day, the team arrived promptly and got right to work. They were efficient, careful, and respectful of my belongings and my home. They worked tirelessly to make sure everything was packed and loaded safely and securely, and they did it all with a smile on their faces. But what really stood out to me was the kindness and compassion they showed me throughout the entire process. Moving can be an emotional and overwhelming experience, and their team went out of their way to make sure I felt supported and cared for every step of the way. They truly went above and beyond to make my move as smooth and stress-free as possible Thanks again!!!

    I hired Global Gentle Movers based on positive Yelp reviews and availability to accept my move before end of month. The owner, Kiryl, personally ensured I had all necessary packaging supplies. In total, three staff with Tony and Yuriy handled my furniture with care. They were very attentive and proof checked everything was in place before leaving. No elevator in either my previous or current residence however they made light work of it and transferred everything flawlessly. Overall, it was a perfect moving experience with fast response and polite service. I highly recommend and would use them again.
