How to Protect Your Belongings for an Apartment Move

Today’s blog has some helpful tricks and tips to protect your belongings before your apartment move!

If you’re getting ready to move into your new Prescott Square Apartment, you are definitely thinking about your belongings and how to protect them from getting harmed during transportation. Moving can be very stressful, especially when your fragile belongings are in another person’s hands. Luckily for you, there are various ways to protect what matters the most and have peace of mind during the big day. Read on for some helpful tricks and tips to protect your belongings before your apartment move!

Take Your Time with The Apartment Move

The primary reason that items get damaged during a move is that people are always rushing and not taking their time to pack and protect all of their belongings correctly. We do recommend having a slight overlap within your leases so that you’ll have the time to protect your belongings before the move. If you are not actually able to do so with your apartment lease, consider renting a storage unit so that you will have somewhere to move your belongings quickly without the rush.

Label and Mark Everything for the Apartment Move

Let’s face it, movers are not going to handle a box of clothes the same as they would a pack of plates and cups. Labeling the boxes is the best way to ensure that your items get handled with the love and care they deserve. Our very best recommendation is to use a pen or permanent marker to label each side of your moving boxes, including the top and bottom. This way, nothing will get missed or overlooked. Investing in some “fragile” stickers is a bright idea to make sure they’re handled with care.

Hire a Team of Professionals

While hiring a moving company, you will get precisely what you pay for. If you decide to go with a less expensive company, then you can expect the quality of their work to fully represent that. Professionals, on the other hand, have plenty of experience in taking care of other people and their belongings, and you can be very confident that your belongings will arrive right on time and in perfect condition. You should also ask your moving company which kinds of insurance they have and what they would cover should any damages happen. Stop stressing about all of your stuff and begin preparing for your big apartment move! Start by taking your time, labeling each box, and hiring the professionals.
