Whether you’re preparing for a residential relocation or transitioning your office, packing is the cornerstone of a successful move. Here are expert tips from our team to help you pack like a pro, ensuring every item, from your everyday essentials to the grand piano that holds a special place in the family, arrives in pristine condition.

Start with a Moving Plan

Inventory Everything: Before packing a single box, take inventory of your belongings. This not only helps in organizing but also in deciding what to keep and what to part with.

Color-Code and Label: Assign a color to each room and label boxes accordingly. This visual method streamlines unpacking and ensures boxes are placed in their intended space.

Quality Packing Materials

Invest in quality moving supplies, like boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper, are worth their weight in gold. For delicate items or heirlooms, consider speciality custom crates or white glove services.

Consider specialty boxes, like dish packs for kitchenware and wardrobe boxes for clothes, which can make packing and unpacking more straightforward and efficient.

Packing Techniques

  • Pack heavier items on the bottom. This classic principle of balance ensures boxes are stable during the move.
  • Wrap items individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, securing with tape if necessary. This is particularly important for fragile items.
  • Fill empty spaces in boxes by using towels, clothing, or packing paper to prevent items from shifting during transport.

Special Considerations for Electronics and Appliances

  • Prepare by disconnecting, cleaning, and securing cords. Use original packaging where possible for optimum protection.
  • Take photos before disconnecting electronics, snap a photo for easy reassembly at your new location.

The Art of Piano Moving

Relocating a piano requires not just muscle, but finesse and expertise. 

  • A Trained Pianist for Testing: Post-move, a trained pianist assesses your instrument, a testament to our commitment to your piano’s care.

  • Choose a Skilled Team with Specialized Equipment: From dollies to ramps, utilizing the right tools makes all the difference. Choose movers who are experienced in navigating tight spaces and securing your piano, ensuring its arrival in tune and unscathed.

Last-Minute Essentials

  • Personal Items: Keep important documents, chargers, and necessary personal items with you during the move.
  • Essentials Box: Pack a box with items you’ll need immediately upon arrival – from a kettle for that well-deserved cup of tea to the children’s bedtime books.
