Eden Prairie Movers


Here are some helpful packing tips from these Eden Prairie movers that you may not have thought of. First, gather packing supplies before you start. There's nothing more frustrating, then having to stop half-way through a packing session in order to get more supplies. Packed boxes should weigh less than 50 pounds. Pack heavier items on the bottom. Stuff socks, scarves, pillow cases and other small fabric items in holes and crevices in boxes - just make sure you keep pairs of socks together! You may also keep dresser/chest drawers full, just remember to remove the anything breakable ,empty out the top drawer, knick knack items. Make sure all boxes can close properly and be sealed so the tops are flat. If you over-pack a box, you risk damage to the contents. Moving MN's Eden Prairie movers can help you execute these packing tips. Also, pack small items in small boxes and place them into a large box. Label all boxes, large or small. Small, loose items should be boxed or bagged and sealed securely before placing into a larger box.

If you are moving liquids via your Eden Prairie movers, transfer them into a sealable container or make sure the lid is secured by taping it down, then put it into a waterproof bag, seal the bag then place it upright into a box. Clearly mark the box with arrows and "This End Up". Also, check which items should not be packed - items that your Eden Prairie movers will not move. Keep an inventory list of each box and its contents. This will be necessary if a box goes missing and you need to make a claim. Keep your clothing in dresser drawers.

Keep a box labeled "Load last, unload first" for the essentials you'll need when you arrive. Also, keep important records with you. Do not move them with the rest of your household goods for the Eden Prairie movers to move, in case they get lost. If you cannot take them with you in the car, then send them on ahead with a secure courier company. Tape down anything that moves, except for the cat! Fill free spots with lighter linens. This can be done with your washer and dryer, and the vegetable crisper in the refrigerator. As much as possible, keep items in their proper places. For example, when packing the silverware/flatware, keep it in it's' tray then tape bubble wrap around it to secure the contents. This is easier than sorting out all those pieces after your move. Tape screws, bolts and other loose items to underside of furniture. Make sure you bag them first. Call Moving MN today and let their experienced Eden Prairie movers help you get into your new home stress free!
