/ By Editor / 0 comments

Leaving your old home and moving to a new one is rarely a simple task. First of all, the emotional side of things can be quite challenging, depending on the circumstances of the move and it is practically impossible to go through it without getting stressed out. There are so many things that you will have to think through and organize that it may feel overwhelming at times. However, there are ways to significantly reduce all the stress through proper organization and planning. Packing is one of the aspects of the move where that is clearly visible due to there being so many sensitive items. In order to pack your fine china for a move, as well as other delicate items, all you need is proper planning and, sometimes, some help from one of the best moving companies in Miami.

Call our movers to give you a hand

Through years of working in the moving industry, our movers have gathered a lot of experience in all the stages of moving. When it comes to packing services Miami, there are a few essential tips and tricks that have proven crucial for packing sensitive items such as china. Following these tips, you will be able to safely and effectively pack your fine china for a move and transport them to your new home. Without further ado, let us begin.

Good preparation is crucial for every part of the move and packing is no different

Before you start packing your belongings, it is important to properly plan the packing process. In order to do this, you have to do some preparations beforehand. In the heart of every efficient, stress-free move is the good, old inventory list. Creating an inventory list during the preparations for the move is thus essential. Some people may tell you that you do not need it, but that is simply not true. A thorough inventory list is there to prevent some of the biggest moving problems that can arise.

For instance, even if you hire a moving company, accidents that are nobody’s fault can still happen. In such cases where there is a need to file an insurance claim, an inventory list is one of the documents that you need to submit. That is why you should hire the best movers Boca Raton offers and basically avoid such cases.

So, how and why does such a list matter?

However, that is circumstantial use of the inventory list. Its greatest use is for the packing and unpacking phases of the move. What you want to do is to create a full list of all the items that you have. Firstly, you will be able to plan the packing schedule which is an important piece of the moving timeline. Secondly, this will enable you to plan the groupings of all of your items. Thirdly, you will be able to estimate the amount of packing materials that you will need for the process.

This is really important especially if you are on a tight schedule and there is no time for such mistakes. You definitely don’t want to be out of packing materials two days before the move, especially trying to pack your fine china for a move safely. So, now that we have established the importance of good organization for packing and how to achieve it, let’s move on to the packing supplies.

How many packing supplies do you need?

Quality moving supplies are a must during a move, but the quantity is also what matters. One of the worst things that you can do during moving preparations is to try to save money on packing supplies at the expense of the safety of your belongings. It is definitely better to get more than you estimate that you will need, than the exact amount. Mistakes and other unforeseeable things will happen that will require extra moving supplies, so it is better to have an abundance than to have the exact estimated amount. Basically, those extra supplies left after the packing, you can use to simply improve the protection of your most vulnerable items even further.

What packing materials do you need to pack your fine china for a move?

The supplies needed for packing china are mostly standard packing supplies.

  • You will definitely need moving boxes of sorts. Hopefully, you have saved the boxes that china came in originally. Original packings of items are always the best mode of transportation. So, if you do have the original boxes and the styrofoam that came with it, search no more. That is the packing core for your china. If you do not have it, then standard moving boxes and packing tape will have to do.
  • Next up, you will need packing paper. Packing paper is the first layer of protection that you will mostly use between each of the plates. This will protect them from scratching each other during the transport.
  • Bubble wrap is the next step. It is there to do the most of protecting because its structure is one of the best ways to neutralize pressure coming from the outside. Make sure to have it wrapped around the entirety of the china in its respective boxes.
  • Blankets, towels, or similar items. These are there to push the safety level further. You can use towels instead of bubble wrap if you do not have them. Otherwise, you can use it on the outside to create a cushion of sorts between the box and its surroundings. Blankets are perfect for this role. You can easily wrap it around a box, perhaps even several times.
