  • Pre-move wellness checks for both our customers and our crew members, where all will be asked to advise us if you feel ill or suspect exposure to the virus. For our movers it would be mandatory that they stay home, and for our customers, moving services can be rescheduled, postponed or cancelled to mitigate risk, should that be necessary.
  • Our crews are equipped with gloves, disinfectant sprays/wipes and hand sanitizer for your protection and theirs.
  • We have put into effect social distancing measures, and although we have always valued the professionalism and respect that comes along with a good introductory handshake and a departing thank you, we ask for your understanding that for the safety and well-being of everyone, there’ll be no handshake or touching of any kind.
  • Upon arrival, our crew will still introduce themselves, walk through the home with appropriate social distance, begin to protect the home with all safeguards like floor runners, and door jams (as they always do), but in addition we ask you now (with all due respect), to please give them the appropriate space they need to safely and efficiently service your move and allow them space to do their job.
  • When available and appropriate, open doorways and windows to increase air circulation and ventilation.
  • We are also taking measures to sanitize the cabs and boxes of our trucks, as well as all blankets, pads, tools and equipment after each and every move to reduce any risk of cross-contamination.
  • It is our hope and our expectation that you will take the same precautionary measures that we are taking, and that will also sanitize and wipe down any and all exposed surfaces and furniture prior to our arrival. Anything that you can do to help keep our working conditions safe and sanitary for our men, is equally appreciated.
  • Owners / office staff will be working around the clock from home with complete access for our team and our customers via phone, email and text.

How to pack your glassware like a pro

/ By Editor / 0 comments

Moving day is coming, and you are probably having a lot of questions on your mind. It is a common thing that you are wondering how to do everything correctly and in the most efficient way. Everyone would like to have a relocation without tension and stress. Different tasks will be in front of you, which might be challenging. Among others, one is probably the most tiresome, and that is packing of your belongings. That is why we are sharing with you some useful tips on how to pack your glassware with easy, and like a pro.

How to prepare yourself for relocation

Adapting to the new environment is an inevitable part of each relocation. Deciding to move to Miami is, for sure, one of the best that you have made so far. Miami is the place that can provide plenty of life opportunities, in every meaning. A place with so many diversities, such as Miami, will help you in adjusting. Hence, you will soon feel like you belong there. But before you start enjoying such a great lifestyle, you need to be prepared for relocation itself.

Start preparations with making a moving checklist

The moving process might be a bit difficult, but that is why a good organization can resolve all your worries. With making a moving checklist, setting your budget, and prioritizing the tasks, things can be less confusing. Importantly, the process of preparations will be done in no time. It is of high importance to set your moving date on time, so you can have enough time for everything. That requires finding a reliable moving company that can cover this big event. Not only that you will have more time to pack your glassware and other possessions. You will, as well, have more free time for spending with your friends and family before you leave your current place of living.

Declutter your home before you start to pack your glassware

You haven’t, perhaps, thought about that but decluttering is a necessary part of preparation. Every home has a bunch of items that are not in use and forgotten. As well as items that are just not worth moving to a new home. Besides that, the fewer things you move, the lower the expenses of relocation will be. So, roll up your sleeves and start decluttering of your home. Sort out the things that you will move along with you. Select the glassware that is in good shape, and that is valuable for you. All other pieces, that are half broken, cracked, or that you do not need, should not be transferred. Those things you can recycle, sell if they are undamaged, or donate, which is probably the best option.

Sort out glassware for packing

Glassware and other items that have emotional value, and you would like to keep it somehow, you can store. Choose the storage unit that will have enough space, and that can provide the safety of your belongings. The part with decluttering is important so that you can have a picture of how many boxes will you need. And how many fragile items you have, that need special attention while packing.

To pack your glassware safely, find good packing material

The choice of packing materials is large, and it depends on your budget limits. Sometimes is better to invest more, than to have damages that you will not be able to repair. This is essential for packing of glassware and other fragile items. A higher quality material can give better protection. Bubble wrap, Styrofoam, plastic bins, peanuts, and paddings are an excellent choice for glassware. On the other hand, you can pack fragile items using everyday material, that you have at home. Blankets, rags, and cloth can also provide a softer foundation. What you will surely need are different sizes of moving boxes Miami, in which you will pack your glassware. Choose smaller ones, for heavier items as they are more manageable for placing into the truck.

Find proper packing material

As much as packing supplies are crucial, pay attention while packing fragile items. As they are easily breakable, put them on the table and pack one by one. Bubble wrap each item and tape it before inserting into the box. Any free space inside a box should be filled with peanuts or similar substitution. That way you will avoid any potential damages, that might happen during the transport, due to tumbling. Do not speed up while packing, be patient, and relaxed. You would not like to have injuries like cuts if something breaks during the packing. The safety of your belongings is important, but your safety weighs a lot more. After you pack your glassware, label each box with a sign ‘Fragile’ or ‘Handle with care’. Movers will be aware that should pay special attention when loading. Likewise, you will know the same, when unpacking time comes.

Think about insurance

Even if you pack your glassware in the best possible way, you will never know if something might go wrong. Not only with your fragile items, but with all holds that you are moving. To be on a safe side, consider purchasing moving insurance. Ask your moving company what they include in their insurance. If you desire to have full coverage, you can make a deal with third parties, which are insurance companies. It will mean a lot to you, primarily if you have rare, antique family valuables, that are probably irreplaceable.

We hope that you will find our article useful and that you will pack your glassware in the safest possible way. Everything can be done with a bit of patience and proper organization. In case you are not into packing by yourself, our Miami Beach movers are here to help you. We can take care of your possessions in the most professional manner and transfer your fragile items.
