Professional Packing From Experienced Moving Experts

Posted by on Sep 5, 2018 in Moving Company |

Depending on your current status, in New York the need for professional packing services varies from person to person, household to household and then business to business. For a college student, you can decide to do it all alone or get a large moving company like 5 Stars Movers to bundle up your belongings with that of other customers. This could get you some interesting amount of savings.

As a family, your packing needs will be dependent on the size of your properties. When your kids are still tender and the properties to be moved are relatively large, you may need to get professional packing help from experienced experts. On the contrary, when your children are relatively older, you could use their strength in the packing and then request the services of a licensed moving company.

Trusted Mover in New York, NY

For businesses, it is always a good business decision to get professional help from a company that will handle everything from packing to transit and unpacking. Doing so will ensure that the whole moving process will be started and completed within the schedule. Thus, the best first decision is always to start early.

The other important factor you need to consider is the dis-assembling and re-assembling of some special properties before and after the move. Getting expert help from experienced professionals who have handled the types of office furniture, machinery or equipment you use will save you from the risk of expensive damage. Though a lot of companies claim to have insurance coverage in this regard, you have to verify this before making any financial commitment or handing over your valuable assets.

Getting a cheap moving quote online in New York is easy, but knowing exactly what you are bargaining for is quite a different story. This is why we do send our experts to your home or office for full assessment of your packing, moving and unpacking needs before making a custom quote.

Moreover, in order to avoid long time-consuming claims and possible litigations that arise as a result of unexpected damages, it is better to leave the job to the experts. One reason why this is important is that these guys know better in terms of moving equipment and materials that suit your properties. So that during the packing, moving and unpacking stages you’ll have peace of mind in the fact that your belongings are handled with utmost safety measures. This becomes highly important when you want to move precious belongings like piano, artworks, professional records, and certificates. So before you chose a moving company, make it a priority to ask them the following questions –

  • Is your moving company licensed and insured

  • What would happen in the event of unexpected damage

  • How would I be charged, long distance moving rates always differ

  • Is a deposit required, take precaution before you make a commitment

  • Do you work with temp staff or permanent employees, temp staffing in this field is a risky signal

Take note of the answers you receive based on these few questions. You can decide to ask two or more moving companies the same questions and compare the answers you get.

Finally, if you are ready right now we invite you to start an early moving plan with a custom quote.

How much can you fit in a U-Haul Cargo Trailer?

Posted by on Aug 29, 2019 in Uncategorized |

How much furniture can you fit in a consignment Trailer? When we recently picked up a U-Haul to transport furniture from Maine to North Carolina, we weren’t exactly sure if we should choose a 6×12 or a 5×8. While you can save a lot of money with a 5×8 it is important to consider how much a 5×8 can handle vs the larger double axle 6×12.

In the end, we were able to fit most of what we wanted to in a 5×8. The 5×8 U-Haul Trailer actually carried more than I expected. At first glance I felt like it was way too small. But the 208 Cubic Feet Capacity proved to be very roomy with a little Tetris. If you plan on brining mattresses however, I would still use a 6×12. The mattress and box spring of a Queen mattress set will utilize approximately half the cargo space (depending on the brand and quality of course).

Tips for Picking the Right U-Haul Trailer:

The 5×8 U-Haul Cargo Trailer is a perfect size for college students heading off to live in a dorm room. They may also consider using a 4×8 if the dorm provides some of the furniture.

If you are moving a long distance you may want to consider the price of replacing your mattress and box spring for the cost of upgrading to a 6×12. Chances are if your mattress and box spring are used you could replace them with something used near your destination. In which case you could easily fit a bed frame with lots of extra furniture in the 5×8 and save on the U-Haul rental, toll fees, and gas mileage.
