Hear from our experts: Top packing tips for your next home move

TMAT256

Moving season is on the horizon, and if you’re someone who is thinking about a move in 2021, now is the time to start thinking ahead and planning for it.

Two crucial things we tell our customers they should focus on as a move approaches is packing and organization. If you have a good grasp and plan on your packing process, chances are you’re going to have a positive moving experience. However, the idea of packing can seem like a daunting task – and deservedly so. It requires good planning, proper packing supplies, organization like we mentioned above, and time to roll up your sleeves and get it done.

We’re here to help! We offer a full-line of packing supplies that are guaranteed to cover all of your packing needs, and we can even pack for you! Our moving teams are also trained to pack an entire home or just a few rooms.

In the meantime, here are some of our best packing tips to help you get a jump on the process.

Plan ahead!

We’ll keep repeating this for the rest of time – planning ahead will make your move easier. Tackle the packing that needs to be done little by little, day by day, so you don’t have to do it all at once.

Pack things room by room

This builds off the point above, but going room by room is a solid way to take things in stride and chip away at the packing process. It will also help you keep your belongings more organized and give you some room for error should you need to re-pack something.

Label everything

The last thing you want is to arrive at your new home and not know where something is because you forgot to label the box. Be sure to accurately label each box you are packing up with what’s inside and where it needs to go. This will help both you and the moving teams transporting the boxes.

Keep items protected

Proper packing supplies can play a huge role in the safety of your belongings during transport. Using quality moving boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper will prevent damages as they’re loaded and unloaded from one house to the next.

Here’s a good packing reminder to keep items safe: the heavier the item, the smaller the box. This prevents items from falling out of the bottom.

For even more expert packing tips, here are a few of the best ones we’ve heard from our frontline moving experts – the ones who do the moving and packing each and every day!

“Have all of your loose items boxed up and packed away, and also make sure to label the boxes. Make sure to have a game plan for unpacking the boxes, too.” – Shawn – Operations Manager – Lorain-Medina, Ohio

“With your packed boxes, take them all into the garage. It’s going to save a lot of time for us with the move and will also save you some money on your bill at the end of the move.” – Anthony – Team Lead – Lincoln, Nebraska

Get started early!

This is the best step to planning ahead with your move. If you can get packing out of the way early in the process, you’ll eliminate a massive amount of moving day stress.

Protect your belongings

There’s no point in packing if you’re items aren’t safe and protected. The best way to keep everything safe is by using proper packing supplies such as bubble wrap, packing paper, tape, and moving boxes.

A good tip to remember while packing up your belongings: the heavier the item is, the smaller the box should be.

Pack by room

As we mentioned above, it’s ideal to pack room-by-room. This will help not only keep similar items together, but will also help you in keeping track of where everything is and will help the movers load and unload boxes and furniture in a more organized fashion.

Label everything

You’re probably reading that and thinking “that’s obvious”, but it’s worth mentioning still! If you forget to label your boxes with what’s inside, you’re going to be scrambling and digging through boxes at your new home.

Clearly and accurately label each box so that both you and the moving team know what’s in the box and where it belongs on moving day. If you label the contents inside, this will also help you during the unpacking process, in knowing what you should unpack quickly in your new home, and what can wait a little longer.

Using the proper packing supplies when moving your items makes a huge difference in keeping your belongings protected during the moving process. Moving boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper ensure items that are easily breakable, or electronics, stay safe.

Here’s a good reminder: the heavier the item you are moving, the smaller the box should be. This will prevent the bottom of the box from breaking out when moving.

Organize by room

As you’re packing up room-by-room through your house, be sure to keep boxes from the same room together and label them. This will make it easier to determine what is what, and will also let the movers know how they should pack them onto the truck.

Label as much as you can

It may seem obvious, but you wouldn’t believe the difference that labeling can make in the chaos of a home move. Accurately label each box while packing so everyone involved knows what is in the box and where it should go.

Use these 4 holiday packing tips to ease your holiday fatigue

tmat118

With the bustling holiday season now behind us, that means the fun decorations and lights must come down and get packed into storage for the next 11 months until it’s time to do it again!

Although it’s not always an enjoyable task (hence why we still see Christmas lights in February!) but with the proper planning and execution, it doesn’t have to be such a burden.

We’ve put together a few quick and helpful tips to make the holiday season clean up a breeze.

Have a plan

Taking down the holiday decorations and getting everything moved and packed can’t be finished in 20 minutes – it takes time and planning to get the job done right and to get those breakable items stored away safe and sound.

Examine your current situation, pick a place to start, and go room-by-room as you take everything down, carefully and efficiently wrapping and packing them away. This will also help when it comes to organizing your belongings in storage.

Boxes, boxes, boxes

There’s no such thing as “too many” boxes, especially around the holidays, and that’s why it’s important to have an abundance on-hand to ensure everything has a place to go.

Boxes will provide enough space to keep everything, and will also make moving items into a closet or storage that much easier and organized. Be sure to label each box so that when next year comes, you can find exactly what you’re looking for!

If there is too much to move or something that is too heavy, give our movers a call – they’re happy to help you move items in your home!

Pack with a purpose

Even more so than normal, packing away holiday items requires extra care and attention to detail, as these are often specialty items that can be fragile or easily broken. Remember to use proper packing supplies like packing paper, tissue paper, and bubble wrap to protect those ornaments and decorations as they go back into boxes. It’s also a good idea to pack ornaments in our specialty dish pack box where there are sections that are perfect for wrapped ornaments.

Always keep in mind, the heavier the items, the smaller the box. Be For additional packing tips from our moving professionals, click here.

Start your packing early

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK provides a wide-variety of packing services and packing supplies to make your move easier, which you can see here.

Label your boxes!

Once your items are securely packed in a box, finding them becomes a whole new ballgame. One of the most important steps someone can take during their home move is labeling everything. This organizational tool keeps you in the know with the location of all items you move, and helps the movers know what is happening, too.

Keep what you need, get rid of what you don’t!

The less boxes you have to move on moving day, the easier the entire move will go. If you prepare your move in advance, this will give you time to go through your belongings and ask one important question – do I need this? If you haven’t used something in a year, it’s safe to say you don’t need it.

Toss it! And save the hassle of moving it.

Create a moving checklist

The best way to approach a home move is with a detailed plan. This keeps you on a schedule, gives you a direction, and will help you keep track of everything that is happening in front of you during a time when it’s easy to forget things.

Click here to see our expert TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving checklist, which we’ve developed using our 30-plus years of moving experience!

Keep your essential items together

Pack your essential items last when completing a home move, and even transport it in your personal vehicle so you have access to them if needed. This way, when you arrive at your new home, you can get the important stuff– like toiletries, chargers, etc. – first. It also prevents these essential items from getting mixed up with stuff that won’t be unpacked right away, and won’t leave you scrambling. When packing boxes, go room by room, keeping like-items together and making sure to label the tops and sides of the boxes so the movers know what room they belong in when getting to your new home. Stay accessible in case your movers aren’t sure where a certain item goes and you’re able to direct them!

Know what movers can and can’t move

Although we are more than happy to help with your move, there are some things we can’t move, and it’s important to keep this in mind as you are preparing. Anything from prescriptions to cleaning products, flammable items, or animals cannot be placed on our moving trucks.

To find out more about what we can and cannot move, click here.

Once boxes are packed, put them in one central area

Saving time means saving money! If your movers can quickly grab boxes and load them into the truck, that’ll make for an easier and more efficient move. If you’re able to, transfer your packed boxes to the garage or living room, and that’ll save your movers from going throughout the house to collect your items, thus saving time during the load process.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving tips for military members

TMAT189

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we are all about giving back to our community and helping to move people forward in life. This is especially true with our veterans, and we make sure to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this county and allow us to do we what we do each day.

This is especially true when it comes to providing moving services for active military members, and we try to deliver the absolute best moving services possible for those about to serve, currently serving, or those who may be finishing up their time in the military. While many of the basic aspects of the moving process translate to a military move, there are some minor details that must be taken into consideration to ensure the move goes smoothly.

Thankfully, the “Movers Who Care®” at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK have put together some important moving tips for military members so when it comes time to make your next step, you have all the resources and planning taken care of.

Pack with efficiency

Packing can sometimes be the difference between a successful move and a disaster, and taking the time to pack properly will take a ton of stress off your shoulders and keep the entire process moving along as you relocate to your new home.

Start by labeling all of your boxes so there is no confusion as to where any of your belongings are. Try to organize boxes by keeping items of the highest importance together so that when you get to your new spot, you are able to access them quickly. Be sure to check with the military base you are moving to on their restrictions or guidelines of what is and isn’t allowed on the premises so you aren’t forced to part with something unexpectedly.

Stay organized

For many active military members, moving can become an all too frequent process, and you can find yourself jumping from city to city based on your assignments.

This creates an even greater significance on staying organized with your belongings, as you’ll want to keep yourself on track and not get lost in clutter from place to place. Determine what items are useful at your next place and what items are no longer needed, and toss the unwanted stuff.

Pay attention to pricing options

When it comes to moving as a member of the military, you are given the option of buying or renting your own place, but the pricing options can vary.

Your housing is paid for to an extent, but what allowance you receive depends if you live on or off the base. If you decide to live on the base, they will usually take your entire allowance and allow you to live there without requiring payment for rent or bills If you choose to live off-base, anything you pay for that goes over your allowance comes out of pocket.

Find out what type of housing option works best for you financially, and make the necessary arrangements.

Give yourself extra time

In order for movers to get on a military base, their moving trucks are going to be thoroughly examined by security, and this will often add in extra time. It’s important to plan with this in mind, especially when being charge by the hour for your moving services.

Talk with your moving company and find out what their rates are to ensure there are no surprises come moving time.

Be prepared if you’re going international

This goes without saying, but if your military move involves relocating to a new country, there’s quite a bit of extra planning that wouldn’t normally come with a local home move.

Some things to keep in mind as you relocate to a new country:

-Longer time frames for delivering and receiving your items

-Language barriers

-Relocating your vehicle

Along with this, there are plenty of other factors that come into play, so it’s important to be up-to-date with the regulations of your new country, and with your new military base.

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we put a heavy emphasis on helping and giving back to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to this country. From our Movers for Military campaign in the fall to employing numerous veterans, we feel it’s our duty to make sure these brave men and women are taken care of.

If you’re looking to complete an upcoming military move, give us a call! We’d love to help get you on your way and show you why we are known as the “Movers Who Care®”.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® expert tips for relocating south

TMAT061

-Written by Erik Sargent

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and the television sets are constantly streaming football, basketball, playoff baseball, and hockey, which can only mean one thing – winter is near! For those that live in the northern regions of the country, these are the last few months before the cold weather sets in and we’re all bundled up inside.

For those who aren’t interested in spending that much time in the cold, they often pack up their belongings, hit the road, and relocate to warmer climates for the winter. This can seem like a daunting task, but thankfully, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is here to help ensure you’re on the beach in no time!

We’ve compiled a few key areas that are important to tackle as you prepare for this journey, and hope it can create a smooth moving process a for you.

Downsizing and organizing

If you’re relocating south – even just temporarily – then you’ll want to be selective of items you take in addition to being organized. Downsizing and eliminating clutter will take an immense amount of stress off when it comes time to actually begin moving, while also saving space and time.

Here are a few important ideas to keep in mind as you downsize and organize your items:

Plan ahead: Make sure you have a plan in place for how you’re going to tackle downsizing, and stick to it. This helps so that when you’re ready to move, you aren’t wasting time trying to determine what to do with unwanted items.

Determine what’s necessary: Examine the items you’re considering moving, and ask yourself if it’s really necessary to be moved. Have you used or even looked at the item in the last year? Did you forget you even had that item? Would you even miss it if it was gone? Ask yourself a few questions to determine if those items are things you could easily part with.

Packing

Effective packing will get your journey south on the right track! Check out our expert packing tips video, compiled from over 30 years of being leaders in the moving industry. Also, remember these important tips as you pack:

Labels: Take the time label everything so you know what’s in each box.

Sort by importance: Make sure your essential items – like chargers and bathroom supplies – are stored together so you can get them right away upon arrival.

No used boxes: Used boxes run a high risk of breaking, which could result in broken items during the move. Check out the available moving boxes we provide when contact your local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise about a move!

Getting you where you need to go!

Now that you’re organized and packed, the final step is completing the move so you can get to warmer weather! The thought of long-distance relocation can make people shudder, but thankfully, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is here to help!

We offer an excellent expedited long-distance moving service, using the same outstanding customer service we provide with our local moves to get you anywhere you need to go across the country. The same moving team that loads your belongings is the same moving team that will unload your items at your new place, and we provide you with an exact date of delivery so you can stay on schedule.

For those looking to relocate long-distance but looking for more flexible pricing options, try our new, innovative Value Flex® long-distance moving option!

“The Value Flex model has opened up a new market for our brand, and created a great option for our customers moving a longer distance,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Co-CEO Jon Nobis. “It combines the same great service customers have come to know and love locally, with the efficiency provided by a national logistics network.”

Launched in May of 2017, Value Flex has paved a new path for customers moving long-distance, and brought a new spin to the tradition long-distance experience. With professional loading and unloading services, your items are kept safe in our 16 ft. portable containers from start to finish.

“Value Flex is ideal for those who need long-distance moving services on a budget, and provides the same great customer service and stress-free moving and packing services customers have come to expect with local moves,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Moving Services Director Lindsey Schaibly. “In exchange for a reduced price, customers are given an increased lead time on delivery.
