HINTS AND TIPS

Get prepared before moving :

 

  • Think about switching off your fridge and your freezer before the big day.
  • Do not forget to empty the washer, dryer and dishwasher and think about the stopper in order to pull off the water pipe.
  • It is also preferable to empty all the drawers, including in the smallest cupboards.
  • If your relocation is planned over several days, prepare a bag with the necessary clothes and products for the whole family, just like if you were leaving for a two-day break, and make sure it is easily accessible.
  • To avoid being overwhelmed at the last minute, start preparing the boxes a couple of weeks earlier and do a few every day ; it is also an opportunity to sort through your belongings.
  • Cross the tape above and below the boxes, so to close them correctly.
  • Pack your items one by one, and write a couple of words about the content or the item: that way, unpacking will be easier and our staff will know where to put the boxes.
  • Wrap up individually any fragile objects and your dishes as well with bubble pack, or if you do not have any bubble pack, with linens, towels or wrapping paper.
  • Fill in the empty spaces inside the boxes with linens for instance, to make sure nothing will move.
  • Remember: good packing is essential for a perfect relocation. Objects that have been packed without enough care are very likely to be damaged during the transportation.
  • Use small boxes for books, keep the bigger ones for clothes and other materials that are less heavy.
  • Tape as best as you can the big objects (brooms, umbrellas, etc.), it helps transporting them and also avoids losing them.
  • And if you can, leave our movers do the job, they are expert and this is what they are here for!
