Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving may be a reality of life, yet it is not free of its worry, even if you do not have precious vintage items, artwork, or maybe musical instruments. Yet moving to Denver includes that much more stress and anxiety for many who have items that are not replaceable. These suggestions may help relieve a bit of that anxiousness.
 

First, slow down. Hastening may bring about sloppy slipups. Pack in phases and be sure that you've got enough time.

Before one thing is packed, generate an inventory (your professional movers in Denver will provide a list, however it may not be as in depth). A photo inventory confirms that the item arrived in the same condition as it left. And it could act as evidence if you need to file a claim. Take images from a few sides. Snap shots of the packaging and cartons.

Small Stuff

Keep small valuable items like jewelry or perhaps small electronic devices with you to steer clear of them getting unintentionally misplaced due to their small size. Bring these things inside your carry-on when you're flying. Avoid putting valuables within checked luggage as they can simply disappear without a trace. When traveling to your new residence by automobile, put valuables in a small bag or backpack that you can pick up when you take a moment to shop, eat, or utilize the facilities. Always try to keep these things together with you whenever you can.

Likewise, always keep prescribed medicines, coins and cash, furs, significant documents, photographs, and sentimental items on your person.

Packing Fine art, Vintage items, and Chandeliers

Making use of custom made cartons for tvs, stemware, works of art, along with other hard-to-pack items might cost extra upfront but can spare a lot of stress and money in the end. Your moving company could most likely offer cartons of a lot of varied sizes, in case you realize that you need them. Or, some people keep the original cartons that these items came in to reuse during moves, which is optimal.

For chandeliers, take note of the set up before taking off any light bulbs. A simpler chandelier could have detachable components wrapped and rest on top of a dense layer of padding in the bottom of a crate that is a couple of inches bigger compared to the chandelier before padding is positioned around it. If strands and also crystals can be taken off, they should be wrapped in paper. Chandeliers which need hanging really should be packed in a custom crate with each and every crystal wrapped in paper to circumvent harm. Speak to your professional mover in Denver about the safest way to move your chandelier.

Pick the Ideal Packaging

Upon packing your valuables, give the package a VERY gentle shake. If anything moves, add more packing material. Bubble wrap is better than packing peanuts since it is less likely to shift. You may use bathroom towels to fill empty space. Likewise, you should add more packaging if the top can cave in. Once the package is securely closed, tag it as "Fragile."

Confer with your moving company in Denver concerning any belongings that may be required to have a special crate constructed to be able to safely move the item. Movers frequently work with 3rd party companies as a way to get belongings correctly crated for transportation.

Despite having safety measures set, insurance coverage is absolutely important. Speak with your moving company in Denver along with your homeowner’s insurer relating to your alternatives to make certain you have adequate coverage during your move.

Last but not least, after the moving company in Denver has unloaded the truck, ensure that you check your goods and do a comparison to the pics you've taken before the movers leave, which means unpacking the belongings immediately. Record notes on the documents and take pictures of any possible issues, including photos of damaged packaging.
