Well Trained Crews

Well-trained crew members are just as important as a working truck during a move. We train all our movers and crew members in the true art of wrapping, packing and moving. Moving is an art form when done correctly. There is a method to all things including packing and protecting your items to loading and properly stacking a truck. This also goes for the planning stage of your move. Planning for your move is very important. Part of that planning process must include packing, hiring the right movers, scheduling everything correctly, and there are always storage plans if you plan on storing your items during the transition process.

Planning for Storage: This is something you want to consider early as it will affect other aspects of your moving plans. Your items in storage will affect your moving experience. Whether your items will be held for 1 day or 1 month, you must be sure to pack accordingly so that if there are any delays where you will need to extend your storage, you will not be inconvenienced.

This includes personal items, valuables, toiletries, kids’ toys, and so on. Anything you feel you will need while your items are in storage. Making a detailed list prior to your packing and then packing according to your list may also help.

Hiring the right movers: Choose a mover who listens to your needs and concerns. The right mover will spend time on your estimate going over your items, dates, delivery expectations, and storage needs, and of course offering you the best possible rate for your unique move. Each move is different and having the right mover help you plan it makes it so much easier. We at Pack Mark Movers go over all your moving details including item list, packing needs, schedules, and so on to ensure your move goes smoothly.

Book In Advance: Be sure to book your move in advance to avoid last-minute reservations. With anything, even when going out to dinner, you want to always confirm your reservation somewhat in advance or you may not get a table. The same goes for airlines, concerts, and so on. With moving it is no different. In fact, it is crucial as truck space and labor are limited resources. So to get the dates you want, try to book your moving reservation at least 2 weeks to 1 month in advance. Anything within 1 month is considered a last-minute reservation. Trucks, labor, materials, and other resources need to be allocated to your move and any local moving company regardless of their size, has limited monthly resources.

Packing Correctly: Packing is very important to ensure your items arrive safely. No matter how careful your movers are, if your glass items are not packing correctly, they will break simply from shock waves traveling through the truck during transport. So be sure to add lots of paper and bubble wrap around each glass item when packing it. If you are unsure how to pack your items, call us to ask, or let us do the packing for you at an affordable rate.

We hope these tips will help you during your planning stages. At Pack Mark Movers, we know the more you know the better your move will go. So we try to keep our customers informed and prepared for each step of their move. Give us a call at 973-363-4664 to discuss your upcoming move and let us make your next move a Pack Mark Movers!
