Most of us have plenty of things in our homes. Either these are things that we never use but don’t want to throw away because we like them or they actually have some sentimental and financial value. If it doesn’t have sentimental or financial value, getting rid of it before moving is what you need to do. There is no need to move things that you don’t need. You’ll just be wasting time and packing material. And if you are moving luxury items, you are definitely going to need that time and those packing supplies. Moving luxury items means that you have to pay special attention to packing these items correctly which means using a lot of packing supplies. And if you aren’t sure how that’s supposed to be done, you came to the right place. We have all the tips that you need.
Get the right packing supplies
When moving luxury items, you can’t just use anything for packing. You need to have packing supplies. The most basic packing supplies that you need are cardboard boxes. And you will probably need a lot of them. You can find them anywhere and you need to use them for items that need extra care and protection. You will also need bubble pack. A lot of it. Using bubble pack is very helpful. It protects fragile items from breaking. And even if the breakage happens, the bubble pack will keep it away from damaging other things that are in the box.
If you want to add more protection to these items, you need to use plastic foil or packing tape to. Wrapping your items with tape after wrapping them with bubble pack will add extra protection that you need. But this is all regarding moving small to medium-sized luxury items. You can also use blankets and sheets for protecting your items from breaking and damaging if you are on a budget. For example, if moving a china cabinet.
Moving big luxury items
A lot of people have big and bulky luxury items in their homes such as pianos, painting, sculptures, and much more. These aren’t regular things to move and it is why moving companies consider these items to be special items. You can have your piano taken care of by professional movers but this is going to cost extra. As you probably don’t know how to move oversized items this is the best option to choose. Moving these things by yourself is simply impossible.
Move during summer
If these items are very fragile and are delicate, it is best to move when the weather is the most predictable. Moving fragile things during winter and fall isn’t such a good idea as roads can be wet and slippery which can cause the moving truck to be a bit unsafe. With such a heavy load in the back, your moving truck could slide on the icy or wet roads.
