If you are going to move to a new apartment or house, first of all you have to decide on how to pack all the property in such a way that it will be delivered safe and sound to a new location. The correct choice of packaging materials plays a huge role in the success of the moving, as it guarantees the safety of transported items: furniture, electronics, equipment, and various decorative interior elements. What is more, the right kind of package ensures the convenience of loading and unloading, which also facilitates the work of movers. It is very important to select the most appropriate and suitable packaging material for each item that need to be transported.
The choice of packaging materials depends on many factors: the type of vehicle that is used for the transportation, cargo dimensions, its weight, structure and configuration of the property. Some items can be transported without any packaging. To do this, it is enough to fix the transported things inside the vehicle’s body.
Where to buy the necessary packaging materials? In case you organize your relocation with the assistance of professional moving company, it will provide you with all the necessary tools, to ensure the effective property packaging. As a rule, the cost of such services consists of the price of packaging materials and the cost of the company’s employees, packers and loaders. In some cases, you may purchase the needed materials from moving company and then try to pack all your property by yourself. Before doing these make sure to read some useful tips from experienced movers in order to pack your property and protect it from damage during the transportation. If you can’t find the moving company to buy all the necessary packaging materials, it is possible to acquire corrugated cardboard and construct the boxes of the needed shape and size. In this case, there is no guarantee that the packaging will not be damaged during the relocation. It is quite difficult to make such boxes correctly without experience and skills. So, it will be more efficient to use bubble wrap, as an extra package or layer between the property and the cardboard box.
Also in the process of moving, it is impossible to do without the scotch tape. Wrapping fragile item with the help of bubble wrap and tape, you protect it from damage. Bulky items should be wrapped to and attach with a stapler. These things include a refrigerator, gas stove, washing machine. In these cases it is necessary to make a sturdy package to protect property from scratches. According to safety rules the glass, mirrors and other fragile items must be protected with the foam plastic. The larger granules the foam plastic has, the higher reliability it provides during the transportation of items. Granulated foam can also be used as an additional protective material that may be put into the boxes with small items. This will protect the contents from mechanical damage. So, choose the right packaging materials for your property if you want to get it in one piece after the transportation.
