When you are planning a move, you plan on spending time and effort on the process. You may not realize, however, that safety is also an issue.
Moving should be safe for both the people moving your belongings and for your possessions.
At Strong College Students, we use safe moving practices to ensure this happens.
If you are moving on your own, here are some tips from professional Lubbock movers on moving safely.
Moving Safety Tips From Our Lubbock Movers
When moving, your first concern should be your safety. Always plan where things will go before you move them and bring them into your new location. This will save you a lot of moving time, since you won’t be rearranging items or moving them twice.
When packing boxes, make sure you aren’t overfilling them. Try to set a reasonably light weight limit for each box. In order to determine what would be a manageable weight limit, pack a sample box until it is the weight that you feel you can manage and use that as the standard. Remember, you’ll be moving all day, so don’t make the limit too high.
Make sure you use proper equipment for your move. Rent dollies if needed so that you can move heavier items, or use a professional moving company that has equipment of their own.
Planning and Organization
The safety of your belongings is also a top priority. The key to safely transporting your belongings is proper planning. Plan how you will pack the moving truck in order to fit everything you need, and keep it safe.
Once you’ve done that, you will have an idea of what order to pack in and what goes first. When you are organized and prepared, it is much easier to move your possessions safely.
Break furniture down if possible. This will make it easier to fit through entryways without damaging the furniture or the property. Most furniture is assembled, and you should be able to easily find the access points to dissemble the furniture for moving purposes. Just make sure you keep track of the parts and pieces!
Always prepare major appliances before moving them. In order to do this properly, you should contact the maker or manufacturer. Not preparing appliances before a move can severely damage them, and affect how they work when you arrive at your new home.
