THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PREPARING FOR MOVING DAY

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PREPARING FOR MOVING DAY

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!

    Hired these guys two weeks ago and they did a great job with moving some stuff from my dental office to the storage. They were quick and careful with all the equipment, so you can definitely trust them with fragile and expensive stuff. Also, they have reasonable rates which and friendly stuff that knew what they were doing. Thank you guys one more time!

    With the help of professional movers from GGM, we had a smooth transition of moving our belongings fron our home in one side of town to the other. Brian and Adam were professional, on time (arrived 15 min. earlier than promised), and most of all, they worked non stop and we had to prompt them to take breaks. They took the care to wrap furniture and fragile items like T.V. and glass table tops. We can't thank them enough for their help and will definitely refer GGM to others. And of course, call on them again for future moves.

    I had a wonderful move from the Bay Area to SoCal. Kiryl is responsive, professional and thorough. All of my items were moved smoothly and carefully. Not one thing was missing or broken. Compared to the other big box movers, Global Gentle is super affordable, and the quality is excellent. I will certainly use Global Gentle for my next move in SoCal.
