Moving & Packing Tips
Packing is one of the most overlooked aspects in moving. Your fragile items need to be well packed and protected so they survive the move unscathed. We at North Bay Movers can provide you with the materials you need to pack your items safely and securely. We will also present you with tips and advice on how to pack special items, such as antiques, artwork, china, electronics, files and more. See Video Here
Moving boxes are a must in any moving situation. North Bay Movers can provide you with moving boxes, or you might prefer to get them at your local grocery store. Be sure to give yourself some time in advance of your move, since gathering boxes can be quite a task. Never just fold the bottoms, as the contents will fall out. Use a strong tape and seal the box tops so that they can be stacked. Label the boxes on the sides so you don’t have to move them unnecessarily when you need to find something. Don’t use newspaper to wrap washable items – the ink can cause a real mess. For more packing tips, call North Bay Movers at 707-483-4792.
Leave all drawers full with linens and clothing and clear off the tops of furniture. Have a cooler ready for refrigerated or freezer items. Do not water plants before the move, as they would become to heavy and messy. Wardrobes will be provided for your hanging clothes free of charge on all local moves, upon request.
If you are concerned with packing certain items, or perhaps you find the task a bit overwhelming, North Bay Movers can do the packing for you. From carefully disassembling items when necessary, to making custom sized boxes to accommodate your oversized items.
