What we do?

The ‘d-day’ chooses the timetables for transport:
Avoid rush hours, which coincide with the beginning and end of the workday. Usually, according to the agreement, you can ask at your job you can request a maximum of 2 days of permission to undertake your move. Go for it! If you are going to hire a company, let them know with a minimum of 10-15 days and keep in mind that in summer it is better to expand that margin
Each thing in its place
As we mentioned, many moving companies include in the service the packing of all the objects, although it is obvious that this increases the cost of the work they will do. However, this task of packaging all your properties can be done by yourself, it is not so complicated and you will save a good amount of money. Here are some suggestions. The boxes (either cardboard or plastic) and good-sized plastic bags are essential for any move. You will also need newspaper, bubble and foam packaging, adhesive tape, a marker and labels to mark the boxes.
When you get the boxes choose the most solid and not too large, so you can easily load. Reinforce the base of the boxes by crossing two bands of adhesive tape. In large plastic bags, you can store clothing and bedding. You can also bag stuffed animals and toys. Avoid sharp or heavy objects; surely they will do better in the boxes. Another option to pack clothes is the travel bags, it will be easier to transport, but you must make sure they are strong enough. Make the packaging room by room, labelling each box with a specific description of its contents and the room to which it is addressed. In this way, you can indicate to the workers of the moving company in what room they should deposit each box.
Clearly, label boxes containing fragile items so that they are handled with care. Indicate which is the top side of the box so that it is always face up. Fill the boxes so that the objects do not bounce inside. First, deposit the heaviest things and place the smallest ones on them to the limit of the box. For heavier items, such as books, use small boxes that can be transported or moved easily. The dishes must be packed separately and with great care. The plates, cups and glasses have to be wrapped in plastic bubble and placed inside the box vertically, then fill the gaps with newspaper. Label with the word “fragile” on several of the sides of the box. Never use adhesive tapes directly on the furniture, then it will take a lot of work to remove the glue and may spoil the finish. Electronic devices are best transported wrapped in blankets.
When packing a computer do not forget to make backup copies of the information it contains and make sure not to keep it near objects that generate a magnetic field. Do not pack or transport fuel or flammable objects. Do not forget to put together a box with the following items to carry in the car and have them at hand: basic tools such as hammer, screwdriver, tweezers, tape, etc .; cleaning items such as broom, sponge, cleansers, soap, towels, toilet paper, etc .; Disposable cups, plates and cutlery.
