Some Tips For Long Island Movers

By Will Brand

Moving from one location to another can often end up being one giant headache. Long Island movers should know a few simple tricks to keep this experience a pleasant one. Armed with a little know-how, getting from point A to point B can be simple!

The biggest chore of moving is clearly the packing. Remember to apply the heavy/small light/big rule. Heavy items should be placed in smaller boxes and lightweight items should go in larger boxes. Don’t stack up dishes or records. Lay them on their side in a box that they can’t shift around in. Fragile items should be wrapped and carefully placed in small boxes. Carry them with you in your car as opposed to inside the moving truck where they can get jostled around and broken.

Remove anything breakable such as light bulbs before packing it. Label boxes clearly and neatly. If something inside is fragile, mark that box accordingly, and don’t forget to put “this side up” so that anyone who handles it knows how to set it down. Group items from the same room together to help ease the chore of unpacking. Daily items such as toilet paper, soap, and kitchenware should be loaded up last and unloaded first. These are not items you will want to dig for when you arrive at your new home!

For the journey itself, be sure to include things that pets and small children will require. Keep them out and within reach for the trip. Occupy the minds of older children by creating a “moving kit” that has games and books to keep them busy during the drive. You could also assign older kids a job such as caring for the pet to not only ease your burden but make them feel needed.

Have important phone numbers handy for when you arrive at your new location. Keep friends and neighbors informed by sending them your new address and phone number in advance. Wrap up loose ends like utilities in advance, as well as order the utility services for your new home.

Last but not least, Long Island movers should enlist in the help of friends and family, or if you are able to afford it, professionals. Accept help when offered without feeling guilty. You would want to do the same for a friend, wouldn’t you?
