Packing Tips From Professional Movers

It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly is the biggest hassle of moving into a new home, but without a doubt packing and unpacking are in the conversation. The expert movers at Gibraltar Van Lines, a local moving company in NJ, have put together some useful packing tips that can save you time and aggravation as you prepare for your move.

 - Pack things in transparent containers as much as possible. Knowing what is inside your boxes will help make organizing and unpacking way easier than having to guess what goes where and what is inside.

 - Pack similar things together. It seems obvious enough, but when you have three different boxes for the same room you want to know that all of the tablecloths or plates or DVDs are in the same box so that you can move on to the next item.

 - When you are having things loaded on the truck, think of what you will want access to first. You don’t want to be walking around boxes that are in the middle of the floor as you unpack, so arrange your space efficiently and have boxes and containers for each room brought out in the order that you can best put them away.

 - Clean things as you pack them. There are very few times when you will physically touch most of your possessions, but moving offers an opportunity to do this that is hard to pass up. Dust and wipe down as much as you can.

 - Remove batteries and other contents from your possessions. Do not leave CDs in the player or batteries inside appliances or tools. The shifting and abuse that can come from moving might do damage to the items and the best option is to strip things down and put them back when you are moving in.

These are only a few tips to help you get on your way, but if you want to know more about moving hints and tricks, talk to one of the Gibraltar Van Lines moving experts today by calling 1-800-262-3499.

Long Distance Movers NJ

Long distance moving can be difficult, but you can make things simpler by planning things out in advance. The most important thing is to hire skilled and dependable long distance movers in NJ. Gibraltar Van Lines is a professional moving company with courteous movers who know how to carefully pack any item and will treat all of your possessions with care as if they were their own. We can do all of the hard work and heavy lifting for you, but you still need to do the planning. Here are some tips to help make that easier and alleviate some stress:

Plan for price drops or raises. Different regions have different prices for things. You should know in advance if you will be paying more for rent, food, gas, parking or anything else. It will help you greatly if you plan your budget for the first few months in advance.

Familiarize yourself with your new area. Getting around can be difficult in a new city. Drive or walk around for a few hours to get to know the stores, restaurants, etc.

Leave stuff behind. If you have a lot of useless garbage or even things you haven’t used in a while, throw it away. It will only make the move more complicated and you will probably end up throwing it away soon anyway.
