When it comes to relocating, most full-service moving companies provide an extra service of aiding you with the packing process, including your clothes. They may ask you to empty dressers and then wrap them in an elastic wrap to protect them during the move. Moving companies may also need to move the dresser up, in the corners and place it on its side. In most cases, you can store your clothes in the closet during the move.
However, there are some exceptions where this is not recommended. Additionally, some moving companies don't move very heavy objects, such as treadmills and elliptical machines, or if they do, they do so for an additional fee. This is often because they need to bring in extra staff to help move the merchandise. If this is the case, your transfer will be delayed if carriers have to wait for the elevators to be clear and available.
It's essential to make sure that carriers can move without stepping on anyone while loading the truck. If there are any obstacles that could prevent them from doing their job quickly, efficiently and safely, it's best to remove them. This includes items such as ammonia, nail polish or nail polish remover in the bathroom. Although it is possible to pack and move everything on your own, it can be a lot of work.
In some cases, if you're on a limited budget and have furniture of poor quality, the moving company can skip the furniture pad and simply wrap the piece in an elastic wrap. In conclusion, most full-service moving companies offer an additional service of helping you with the packaging process, including your clothes. However, there are some exceptions where this is not recommended and some items that need to be removed before they arrive. It's important to make sure that carriers can move easily without stepping on anyone while loading the truck.
