Are you getting ready to move and feel overwhelmed by everything that’s happening? We know you’re probably feeling a little stressed out, but there is one more thing you need to consider before starting your move: moving your fragile items. Why is this important? We at Atlanta Pro Movers want you to have as seamless of a move as possible, and an important part of that is making sure that each and every one of your belongings makes it to its destination in one piece and remains undamaged. The great news is, we’re fully equipped to handle any valuable, heavy items that you may have in your home, get them packed safely in our trucks and arrive at your destination without them being damaged or showing any signs of wear. Keep reading to learn about some helpful tips for moving fragile belongings.
Make a list
To start off, you’re probably going to want to make a list of the things you believe are fragile and valuable enough to require special care. It’s important to plan ahead for this, because you’re moving a lot of items and don’t want to be left wondering if an item is fragile or not right before the move. You shouldn’t be too selective either, if you believe an item is, make sure to take note of it so your mover will know. This could be anything like furniture, art, electronics, instruments, and more. Some items like pianos are both heavy, awkward to carry, and fragile. In this case, your mover will work closely with you to determine the best way to move it and what will make you feel secure and at ease during the process.
Another important reason to do inventory and make a list before you start your move is to ensure that nothing went missing during the move. Although this is unlikely, it’s still possible that you could leave something behind during the move. Having a list of valuables is a good way to go back later and check to make sure everything is there.
Move them to one room
If you want to make the move go a little faster, it may help to move all your fragile and valuable items to one area. For example, if you have paintings around your home that you would like to be packaged carefully and moved into a safe area of the truck, take them off the wall and place them in a safe place until your movers arrive. Once they’re there, they will package them together so that they’re safe. If you don’t have time to do this, not a problem! Our movers will gladly go around and gather each painting or picture on your wall for packing.
Ensure there’s a clear workspace
When you’re moving your belongings from one home to another, it’s important to have a clear path to the door throughout the whole process. Although this is always important, it’s crucial when your movers are carrying something fragile or heavy (or both). If you’d like to move some things around or start packing before the movers get there so that they can focus on moving things to the truck, try to keep a pathway clear for them to work. Additionally, since you know your home better than anyone, notify your movers of the most convenient and safe path they can take to the truck. This will generally speed up the moving process and get you into your new home or office quickly! If there are obstructions, a mover may trip over them and damage your items. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
