  1. Weigh boxes accordingly: Place the heaviest items in the bottom of boxes so that they can stabilize the box for transport. Putting heavy items in the top of the box will often cause tipping and damages as well as difficulty with transport to and from the truck.
  2. Seal all boxes: be sure to seal up all boxes to ensure that they remain closed and your items don’t end up lost. Boxes should often be sealed with packing tape instead of duct tape or masking tape. Packing tape provides a stronghold and is fairly simple to open on your arrival for unpacking.
  3. Don’t skimp on packing supplies: We can provide you with boxes and packing supplies for your move. Buying inexpensive boxes or simply finding reclaimed boxes and repairing them can lead to damages. Always use high-quality packing supplies to protect your valuables and be sure to wrap glassware, figurines and mirrors appropriately.
  4. Plan ahead: If you are going to be packing for your move be sure to pack 6 to 8 weeks ahead so that you can get rid of various items in your home as well as pack up some of the items that you don’t normally use to save time later.
  5. Create an inventory: Our packing experts can keep you organized with the help of inventories on all of your boxes. Creating your own inventory for the contents in each box is important for unpacking and finding all of your valuables.
  6. Ask us for help: As professional movers we can always provide you with support unpacking valuable items. We can provide packing services on a per item basis and if you need us to bring extra supplies for valuables we can work at providing you with extra levels of protection for your most valuable items.

How to handle a move after graduation

Worldwide movers often provide support to individuals who are moving after attending school. If you are moving out of your college town and into a new city, it can be tough to know if you are making the right decision. While many people move themselves, getting a professional mover could help to alleviate a lot of the extra stress that comes with moving out especially during a hectic time. Here are some top tips to consider when moving out of your college town and into a new home to start a career.

Protecting your furniture: furniture can be a considerable investment and if you are moving into your first place after college, you may have just invested in new furniture. Worldwide moving will do its absolute best to make sure that all of your furniture is well packed and protected for the course of any move.

Organization: With the help of an active inventory list you can work at locating all the boxes for the unpacking process. The problem with a lengthy move is that many items can often get lost in the process. Rather than getting stuck with missing items on your arrival a professional mover can keep you well organized.

Preparing for any emergency: Preparing for emergencies over the course of a move by making sure that the truck is packed correctly, handling your travel arrangements and bring enough supplies to make sure that you can make it to your destination comfortably should be your concern. A professional moving company can handle the rest of your graduation move.

Moving in and parking: If you are moving into a new apartment or you need help parking a large-scale truck with all of your belongings in it, a moving company may be a cheaper option because professionals will have more experience driving the truck, parking it and potentially cheap insurance and rental rates over a recent graduate and new driver.

By taking these top considerations into a post-graduation move and more, you can have a much more stress-free time.
