How to properly transport furniture?
However, the average city dweller of the city of Spokane may not have materials like Kraftbable on hand. How to properly pack the mirror in this case? Usually, corrugated board and air bubble wrap are used for this. The front side of the mirror is covered with a sheet of corrugated cardboard. The cardboard is securely fixed with tape. Then the mirror is wrapped with bubble wrap.
Do I need to disassemble the chandelier? Some relocation experts at livecleantoday.com/services/moving-services-spokane strongly recommend removing the shades and packing each one individually. This is not really necessary. The chandelier can also be transported assembled, you just need to choose a suitable box. The chandelier should not protrude from it, but also roll from corner to corner. It is better to fill the free space with shock-absorbing packing material - air-bubble wrap, cloth, corrugated cardboard gasket. Sometimes foam rubber is used for this purpose.
So, the issue with mirrors and chandeliers is resolved. But what about other glass objects - for example, dishes? We all know the “old-fashioned” way of packaging, invented in Soviet times. In this case, the plates and saucers are put in a pile, between them there is corrugated cardboard or wrapping paper. The glasses are usually placed on one side. However, modern movers operate in a very different way. They put the plates in the box on the edge, like in a dryer. In this case, the plates should be tightly pressed against each other. The less free space in the box, the better. But glasses, on the contrary, should not be transported in a "lying" position.They need to be put on a leg. The only thing that has remained unchanged since Soviet times is the wrapping paper in which the dishes are wrapped. However, now professionals increasingly prefer air bubble wrap.
How to transport clothes? The first solution that comes to mind is to stack all the things in boxes. But this is tiring and time-consuming. It is much easier to take clothes out of the closet and put them in a large bag without removing them from the hangers. Large (120-140 liters) garbage bags are quite suitable for the role of bags. In a new place, it will be possible to immediately hang it in the closet, and it will wrinkle no more than when folded into boxes. It is advisable to pack and transport clean clothes. At the new place of residence, you will have to reconnect the washing machine, and in the first couple of days there will be no time for washing.
All boxes and bags must be signed before loading. Professionals from the moving company in the city of Spokane put down notes on the boxes indicating the nature of the cargo, but if you move on your own, this will become unnecessary difficulty. When loading the vehicle, the largest and heaviest items are placed first. Then lighter loads are brought in. Do not place heavy, sharp-edged boxes on upholstered furniture. The situation on the road is not always predictable, and with hard braking, annoying things can happen. Boxes with fragile items should be on the floor and not on, say, a cabinet or refrigerator.
Experience shows that when you move, everything is possible - both good and bad. But many accidents can be avoided by anticipating them in advance.The preparation for the move is thoughtful, the more successful it will be.
