If you have decided to downsize from a family home that you have spent the last 15-30 years in, you may need extra help with packing. You might not realize it looking around, but you have collected a lot of belongings while you’ve lived in your same home. A professional team of packers can help you dig through and organize all your belongings that you wish to take with you to your new home. A packing service can also help you by packing up things that you want to donate or throw away into organized, labeled boxes. The key to a smooth and stress free move is packing. Utilizing the right materials to minimize damage and using organization techniques can make for a great experience. The packing team at Moving & Storage Pros can turn any overwhelming packing situation into a very manageable task.
Downsizing your home means less room, and you may not want to part with your belongings just yet. You may even have large items that you need to keep in storage or seasonal things like holiday decorations that you do not have the room for in your new place. Choose a storage service with a security team, security protocols, the size units you need, and temperature controlled units. All of these attributes will ensure your belongings stay safe and kept like new. Most people do not realize how vital temperature control units are, but they provide an atmosphere to minimize warping in wood furniture; your antique items do not get temperature damage, and your electronics are not compromised by humidity and heat. Having a storage unit can be a great idea if you are looking to downsize but still want to hold on to precious heirlooms and other items. The Moving & Storage Pros offers excellent storage options for your belongings. We offer high-security and temperature-controlled units. We can even make crates for your things that need extra protection. You can learn more about our storage services on our website.
Now that you have packed up all your belongings, organized them, and placed some in your new temperature-controlled unit, it is time to actually move to your new home. Having a safety-focused move is extremely important. Inviting friends or family to help you move can seem like a good idea until either no one shows up or someone hurts themselves moving heavy furniture or boxes. The Moving & Storage Pros team of expert movers have all the tools and experience they need to ensure the safety of people, and your belongings are a top priority.
