- / Moving Tip
During the planning of the move, we all ask questions:
Where to begin? How to pack all the things so that they can get there? In what form do you carry clothes, furniture, fragile things?
Below we have written you advice based on our experience. They tried to answer frequently questions. This will help you not to get lost in the amount of your own things.
We have described to you all the stages, from planning to placing all things in a new place. We hope that with our advice the preparation for the move will be easier.
1.Pack boxes no more than 30-50 pounds.
2.When a box is full close the lid and seal it with the tape.
3.Do not over fill your boxes.
4.Put heavy things like books in SMALL boxes. Large boxes are for lighter items.
Chests and dressers are best emptied. If a piece is light it is OK to leave things in the drawers as long as they are not breakable or spill able.(make sure that company do not insure staff in drawers in case of lost or damage)
Office desks are best moved empty.
For clothing nothing can beat a wardrobe box (our company provide these). However, you can use regular large size boxes instead.
When packing, plan ahead and think where you will want these items at your new place. It is most efficient to move each item only once. Plan where to place each piece ahead of time and we’ll place each item exactly where it goes, so you’re not moving things around and searching for items while you unpack. Mark boxes and furniture with their destination room, so we can put them where they go
Please arrange for a parking spot in front of your house or building for your moving truck, especially if you live in a densely populated area such as Adams Morgan, Georgetown or Old Town Alexandria. It would be best if you could get temporary No Parking Signs from your local police to keep these spots open for us. You must request these four or more days in advance. Even if you don’t get the signs it is helpful if you can park your car in
the space closest to your door so we can put the truck there.
Best and cheap movers understand how stressful relocation can be. Let us help eliminate your stress by providing you with the appropriate insurance for your household goods during your move. Our insurance options protect your belongings whether there is damage or loss of a single item, or a catastrophe event. The standard liability insurance is $0.60 per pound and no more than 50$ per item. However, additional coverage may be purchased to suit your personal needs
