Maple Grove Movers


The next thing you will need to do is to collect supplies. Try to estimate what you'll need and make sure you have enough on hand. Start collecting boxes from your place of work, from friends or from stores. Or purchase moving kits or packing kits online or from Moving MN, as the premier Maple Grove movers. Start with packing non-essentials, items you can do without. If you're moving in the summer, pack all your winter clothes, sports equipment and heavy blankets. Then, label boxes. While you're packing boxes, make sure you label the top and sides of boxes with contents, location of contents in your house and if there are any special instructions, such as "fragile" or "open first".

This will assist the Maple Grove movers in putting the boxes in the correct room and will warn them of any fragile items. Also, by keeping a complete list of the contents on the outside of the box, you'll save time digging through 10 boxes marked "kitchen" just to find the can opener. Making an inventory list will save you so much time. We have all been there, the numerous times you were disorganized and swore you would never have to dig through another box again; or maybe it was the time boxes were lost and you wasn't sure what to claim for insurance. Whatever the reason, now, not only should you clearly label each box, but number the boxes and keep a running inventory list that you check off when the movers are unloading them into my your place. This way, if a box goes missing, you can easily identify which number it is and what is contained within it. Again, insurance companies love this kind of detail.

It is best to properly label boxes with stickers that instruct the Maple Grove movers on how to handle the contents. Stickers can be bought at an office supply store or made on your own computer. Clothes, towels, linens, pillows can be used to keep fragile items safe. Just make sure you mark this on the box for when the box is unpacked. If the person or one of Maple Grove movers who is unpacking the box is unaware that a crystal vase is wrapped inside a fleece blanket, they could easily unfurl the blanket sending the vase crashing to the floor. Make sure you properly wrap all fragile items in several layers of bubble wrap and pack them on their edge, items like plates, mirrors, picture frames, etc. It is strongly recommend bubbling wrap. It's inexpensive and will prevent dishes and other fragile items from bumping against one another. Using newspaper to separate plates can often times lead to a few broken pieces as a result. Tape any stray items together into a bundle. Ski poles, brooms, mops, lamp stands, etc... can be taped into one package for easy carrying and storing.
