Preparing for Packing Service

There are 3 little-known Tips for Preparing for Packing Service.  As San Diego’s packing experts, Move Central, has seen a lot of packing days that could have gone a little more smoothly with just a few extra pointers. In this article, we will share with you the little-known but highly valuable tips that can help you save time and therefore money when it comes to packing service day.

Here are our San Diego packing team’s three best tips for preparing for Packing Service:

1. Tidy up the house. This tip will help keep people safe, will reduce accidents that could cause damage to your household items or your home itself, and will ensure that the packing service can move freely around the home. We don’t mean that you have to scrub or have things sparkling clean, but removing things from the home that you don’t want or need will ensure that you don’t accidentally pay for moving trash.
2. Find a safe and secure place for children. With the door open and so many people moving about, both pets and children have been known to zip right out the door without anyone noticing. Instead of having to worry about them during the hustle and bustle, it is best to have them out of the way, with pets crated or secured in an empty room and children being taken to another location or being supervised by an adult not associated with the moving process.
3. Make a photo inventory of any extra special or expensive items. While we will inventory your valuables and make sure they are covered appropriately by insurance if you opt for it, it is also a good idea to take photos of these valuables, just in case. An easy way you can do that is to use a moving app such as Sortly that offers photo inventorying along with other moving organizational tools.
Our San Diego packing experts know that just a little extra preparation for your move can go a long way. For more tips like these, be sure to check out our other posts, or contact us with any packing or moving questions you may have.
