Moving Advice from a Traveling Nurse

Growing up, my two main passions were helping others and traveling. These passions made choosing my dream career easy, and I am now a traveling nurse and love it. If there is anything I have mastered outside of the field of healthcare it is making quick moves around the country! There was a huge learning curve to it, because before I began traveling for work, I lived in the same house for my entire life. To help other people who move frequently for work purposes or who are just relocating for the first time in many years, I thought I would create a blog to share my moving tips. I plan to create new posts here and there during my downtime, and I hope I can help you master your next move with ease and without a lot of stress!

4 Ways Residential Movers Protect Your Most Delicate Items When Moving Houses

by Tom Evans

As thrilling as relocating to a new home can be, the process is not a walk in the park. This is especially true when packing and moving delicate items, such as glassware, irregularly shaped furniture, art, jewelry, and electronic equipment. But moving delicate items need not be hectic if you enlist the services of residential movers. Here is how a moving company can ensure the safety of your most delicate items. 

1. Use of Custom Crates

One of the most effective ways to ensure the safety of your fragile items is to use custom crates. The residential movers will come to your home before moving to evaluate all the delicate items that require custom crates. Then, they will customize the boxes based on the specific item's dimension. Even better, the crates may be insulated to protect your items from extreme temperatures or moisture. Common items that may require custom boxes include paintings, chandeliers, and sculptures. The movers will place the delicate items in their respective crates and seal them to keep damage at bay.

2. Use of Moving Blankets

This is yet another thing residential movers may use to ensure your fragile items are safe. Blankets protect your heavy, delicate items from nicks and dents when moving them down stairs or through hallways. What's more, blankets keep debris and dust from your valuable items. Your moving company may also pair them with padding to add an extra layer of protection.

3. Use of Bubble Wrap

Residential movers will come with quality bubble wrap to protect your fragile items from damage. Well, when you think of bubble wrap, the first thing that may come to your mind is popping its bubbles. But the bubbles are essential in suppressing forces that may cause damage to your delicate items. Moreover, the moving company will use packing tape to keep the bubble wrap intact.

 3. Use of Quality Packing Boxes

The residential movers can go out of their way to use strong boxes with the right shape and size. The aim is to ensure your fragile items are packed in strong boxes with little or no spaces left. This way, there will be less movement and breakages when moving. Then, they will use adequate packing tape to seal the boxes and further ensure your fragile things are safe.

Moving your delicate items can be hectic and daunting. Instead of handling it yourself and ending up damaging some items, it might be easier to hire residential movers to get the job done right.
