Tag your Items
When moving be sure to mark all of your items so you don't end up opening the bathroom box in your bedroom. This will make for an easier unpacking from both the mover and you.
Pack Heavy – Pack Light
Pack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.
Know how to Pack Plates and Records
Plates and records should be packed on end vertically, rather than placed flat and stacked. This will ensure that they won't break during the move.
Protect Your Memories
If it’s irreplaceable, take it with you in the car (you don’t want regrets later). But if you do decide to pack framed photos or art, place sheets or blankets between them for added protection.
Give the Kids an Educational Exercise
Have children write their names and new address on the cartons from their rooms so they can become familiar with their new street and town.
Remember the Bare Necessities
Toilet paper, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee (and pot), soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, and paper towels are some of the essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and ask your Larimar Xpress mover to load it last so that it will be unloaded first.
Get the Bed Ready
Designate one drawer of a dresser for sheets and towels so that you won't have to rummage through boxes for these essentials the first night in your new home.
Make a note of your shipment registration number and keep it with you in case you need to call Larimar Xpress with questions about your shipment.
Give out your Number
Before we leave for your destination residence, give him a phone number where you can be reached. It is also a good idea to provide him with an alternate contact in case you can't be reached.
Don’t forget about the Fridge
After you've thoroughly cleaned and dried the inside of your refrigerator, put a handful of fresh coffee, baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh.
Remove bulbs before packing your lamps.
Help your Pet Relax
Keep your pet calm and away from all the activity on moving day by arranging for a friend to watch him at their house.
Be Nice to Your Plants
When moving plants to your new residence via your car, try not to let foliage rest against the windows, as the leaves will scorch.
Take a Break from the Computer
Upon arrival at your new home, let your computer "acclimate" itself to room temperature before plugging it in.
Enjoy the Help
Leave the rest to the professionals, sit back and relax, and look forward to the new opportunities, friends and experiences that are part of any move.
