FRANKTOWN’S SPECIALTY MOVING EXPERTSE

Few things are as exciting as finding your dream home or an office that suits the needs of your expanding enterprise. However, when the realization that you’ll need to physically move all of your belongings sinks in, that excitement can quickly fade. Relocating can be stressful, especially if you have fragile or timeless pieces. Whether handling a move yourself or relying on an outside company to do the dirty work, there are certain things that need to be left to the experts. Inexperienced hands managing the movement of a fine art piece or the breakdown of expensive equipment can lead to disastrous consequences, including damage to the piece or injury to the mover.

EFFICIENT FURNITURE DISASSEMBLY AND REASSEMBLY IN FRANKTOWN

Disassembling furniture can be a pain, but it’s often an essential part of moving. Whether it’s your couch that won’t fit through the door unless the legs are taken off, or it’s a dresser that’s simply too unwieldy because of its size, sometimes disassembly is an unavoidable reality.

A major reason why people dread disassembly so much is because of the risk of losing a part of the furniture, but with AALL Carefree Moving and Storage experienced furniture disassembly and reassembly services, you don’t have to worry about missing screws or chair legs. All of the necessary components will arrive at their destination, and we can get to work assembling everything right away.

BRING YOUR PRIZED FURNITURE WITH YOU

The size of your door shouldn’t dictate whether or not you take a piece of furniture with you, but if you’re scratching your head wondering how to get it out of your home, it might seem like the item is destined to remain behind.

AALL Carefree Moving and Storage has been helping residents take their prized possessions with them for years, providing disassembly and reassembly services to Franktown and the surrounding area, so if you’re grappling with how you’re going to get your furniture safely to its new home, give us a call today.

TRUSTED PIANO MOVERS IN PARKER

Piano moving is a tricky process that involves a skilled hand. Even if you’ve decided to save a bit of money and hire an amateur moving company, it’s wise to hire experienced piano movers to handle your instrument.

AALL Carefree Moving and Storage has been ensuring the safe transportation of Parker pianos for years, and has a reputation for providing service that is reliable, efficient and affordable. If you’re planning a move and are looking for an experienced company you can trust with your piano, look no further.

PIANO MOVING SOLUTIONS TAILORED TO YOU

Like all of your belongings, pianos are precious items, but unlike your books, pots and pans, they require an extra level of attention given their fragile nature. When moving, your piano can’t be trusted with just anybody, you need a company that understands how to properly handle such an instrument.

Every piano is unique, and therefore needs a moving solution that reflects that. There are many factors to consider when moving a piano, ranging from type and size to the wood used in its construction. By taking the time to fully examine your piano prior to getting it ready for transportation, AALL Carefree Moving and Storage is able to provide moving solutions that are tailored to your specific piano.

DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY AVAILABLE

While some pianos can be transported in one piece, other, larger models require careful disassembly in order to make the journey. If you own a grand piano or something similar, contact us today to inquire about our disassembly process.

As with our regular piano moving services, when moving pianos that require disassembly we take care to expertly wrap each part of the instrument so it is protected on all sides, ensuring it arrives at its destination without a scratch on it. Once your piano arrives at its new home, our experienced team will skillfully reassemble it, so you can enjoy playing it right away.

EXPERT HOME STAGING IN PARKER

If you’re a Parker homeowner looking to sell, you may have heard about home staging services. Home staging is an essential part of the selling process because it allows potential buyers to picture themselves in your house, increasing its appeal.
With an eye for details and extensive experience creating welcoming environments in homes around town, AALL Carefree Moving and Storage is well-positioned to stage your home for an upcoming sale.

WHY STAGE YOUR HOME?

The main reason we recommend home staging is because it makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine living in the space. In your home, everything is decorated to your specific tastes, but if you’re looking to move elsewhere it’s better for buyers to have a blank canvas where they can picture themselves.

Home staging has been shown to not only reduce the time your property is on the market for, but also to increase the amount earned from the sale. Based on our experience, it’s not uncommon for home owners to receive a sum well over the asking price, all because a well-staged home is significantly more inviting than one that has not been staged.

WHY CHOOSE AALL Carefree Moving and Storage?

Once you’ve made the decision to stage your home, the next step is to find the right company for the job. Our extensive portfolio includes homes of all sizes, ranging from condominiums to multi-floor homes, so no matter what your square footage is we can take care of it.

Our aim is to highlight what makes your property so special, which we do by finding the perfect lighting, furniture and accessories to draw attention to the home’s many strengths. With a detail-oriented team, nothing escapes our comprehensive vision of how to transform your property.

Your Essentials should include

  •   Any; toiletries you may need
  •    Snacks, coffee and tea
  •   Garbage; bags
  •   Change; of clothes
  •    Towels
  •    Snacks, coffee and tea
  •    Pet food and dish
  •    Scissors
  •    Mugs, plates and cutlery
  •    Important papers, such as receipts, banking information or tax slips

AALL Carefree Moving and Storage OFFERS EXPERT PACKING SERVICES AT AFFORDABLE RATES.

  •   Dispose of;, sell or donate unwanted articles prior to moving to streamline packing.
  •   Loosely; wrap glass, stoneware, and all fragile items using two layers of plain paper or (ecofriendly) cloth (Clean socks work well!).
  •   Wrapping; items in newsprint may leave stains on certain items, so it’s best to use newsprint for things that can be wiped off easily, like cutlery or certain ceramics.
  •   Pack; all loose items in boxes, not bags.
  •   Tape; boxes across tops and edges and label them clearly according to room placement at your new location. This will make unpacking that much easier!
  •   Label; and place screws and small parts from disassembled furniture and equipment in small clear plastic bags. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to assemble furniture only to realize you’re missing half the screws, so make sure you think ahead.
  •   Transport; jewelry, money and valuables in your own vehicle. For your more precious (and fragile) possessions, AALL Carefree Moving and Storage recommends keeping them with you at all times during the move.
  •   Organize; and label electronics and cables before your move for easy set up at your new location. Cables have a tendency to become extremely tangled, so taking steps to minimize this will save you some grief when it comes time to unpack.
  •   Pack; food securely in sealed bags for extra protection. Moving can take a lot out of you, so we suggest packing some snacks in your Essentials box, to keep your blood sugar and mood up throughout.
  •   Pack; and clearly mark a box for ESSENTIALS that you will need immediately when you reach your new location

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

  •   Notify; all pertinent government agencies, banks, creditors, gas, water, telephone, cable and internet providers of your move. Doing this prior to your next billing date will prevent important documents from being lost in the mail, as well as minimizing the disruption in your services.
  •   Defrost; and clean fridge(s) prior to moving day, and minimize the amount of perishable food you pack, as it can attract a whole zoo of creatures you likely want to avoid in your new Parker home.
  •   Empty; fuel from lawnmower, power tools, kerosene lamps and barbecue.
  • Plan the placement of furniture or equipment in your new location so our movers can accommodate you.

You can always choose how much of your belongings you want to be packed by a mover, just remember it doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

Packing Guidelines
If you do end up packing at least some of your own belonging’s it is important to know exactly how to protect your things. Also, it is important to note that packing must be finished by the night before your move is scheduled and the moving truck arrives. Make sure that you leave out the items that you will need for the last night, and when you first get to your new residence

What should I pack?
Generally, large items such as furniture and major appliances will be padded and shrink wrapped by your moving company.

They are professionally trained and know how to properly protect them. All throughout this packing handbook, you will be able to find various tips and tricks to help you successfully and safely pack every room in your home.

What type of boxes do I need?
The fact that you are asking this question really shows that you are headed in the right direction. Choosing the correct boxes for your move is an important factor in making sure that your items get to your new house safely. You will find that there are various moving boxes and cartons available that help dramatically improves the chances for your valuables to arrive just the way they left.

Small (Book Carton) – 1.5 cu. ft. carton
These small boxes are made strong and sturdy, designed for heavier items, they also effectively limit the weight of each box due to their small size.

Medium – 3 cu. ft. carton
This size box can be used for pots and pans, as well as your children’s toys, as well as various towels.

Additional supplies:

  • packing paper (make sure that it is unprinted)
  • You can use paper towels or bubble wrap to help provide extra padding to delicate items.
  • PVC tape
  • tape dispenser
  • markers for labeling
  • something sharp to help you cut cartons
  • labels to help identify boxes

Where do I start?
When packing your boxes there will be many items that need to be protected before they are packed, different things to help you with this include bubble wrap, peanuts, and wrapping paper.

Remember as you start to pack your delicates to set up a stack of paper somewhere conducive to packing. You can protect glasses and other round delicates by rolling them up in 2-4 sheets of protective paper, remember to roll from the corner of the sheet folding the sides in as you progress.

For bulkier dishware, you are going to want to lay the dishes centered on a large sheet of the protective paper and draw up the corners of the paper over the dishware. Sometimes it may be necessary to flip over the delicate item and repeat this method, possibly several times. Just remember if you don’t feel comfortable with the level of protection you should probably use more paper. It may even help if you use tape to help increase the protection.

Remember to pad the bottom of each box with wadded paper to ensure that you place the heaviest items in the box first to ensure that the lightest items end up on top of the box. Otherwise, for obvious reasons, your belongings may be damaged.

Ensure that plates as well as books and other things of this nature are loaded in the proper box vertically so that you are using the inborn strength of these items to help protect them in transit. Don’t try to pack everything in one box either, this will cause them to be weighed down and possibly cause the items inside to be damaged. You want to make sure that all the voids are filled though, to avoid shifting and damage in transit, so use wadded paper to completely fill up the box if other lightweight items are not available.

Tips for packing

It is usually good to start without season items and things that you do not use frequently, things that are used more regularly should be left for moving day.

  • Generally masking tape or other narrow tapes like this are a bad idea PVC tape (poly-vinyl chloride) is usually the best tape for moving.
  • Do not ever allow the ink on newspaper to touch items such as your fine china because the ink can be absorbed into them, the newspaper is best utilized as a cushion.
  • Make sure you label every box that you use using a big marker, ensuring that you include the room and content, and include whether or not the items are fragile, also include which end of the box should face up.
  • Do not pack more than 50 pounds in each of your boxes.
  • Make sure that you empty dresser drawers of anything that is at risk of breaking during transport.
  • Make sure you keep all of the parts of disassembled items together, such as all the screws and bolts that belong to your bed, these items can be placed in a small bag and taped to the bed.
  • It is helpful to wind up all electrical cords and fastening them with Velcro, or trash ties so they do not dangle.
  • Make sure that you protect breakables by wrapping them individually using packing paper that does not have any print on it, you may find it helpful to use paper towels or tissues as well, you can use newspaper for added protection as long as the ink is not touching the breakable because this could cause the item to be stained.
  • It is helpful to layer the bottom of boxes that have breakables with newspapers for extra protection.
  • Make sure that you pack boxes, putting the heaviest items on the bottom, and working your way up ensuring that the lightest items are on the top.
  • Make sure that empty pockets are filled in with tissue or packing paper to maximize the protection of your belongings, you may find it helpful to use a corrugated box with dividers for extra protection.
  • Make sure that all of your boxes are tightly closed with tape to ensure safety during transport.
  • Make sure you put which room each box is going to at the destination point, you may want to label each room at the new residence to ensure that each box gets delivered to the appropriate location.

It definitely helps everyone on move day if your bed frame is already dismantled of course your mover can easily do this for you but it takes more time to complete the move.

How to pack Mirrors

Mirrors that are constructed from glass should be placed in special boxes that are made specially to protect them. Also, if the mirror is especially heavy, it may help if a crate is used during transport.

How to pack Draperies & Curtains

Wardrobe cartons are ideal for moving curtains and drapes. Fold them lengthwise, place over a padded hangar, pin securely and hang in the wardrobe. Draperies and curtains also may be folded and packed in cartons lined with clean paper or plastic wrap.

How to pack Rugs

Leave area rugs on the floor for the moving company to handle.

  • You may want to consider having your area rugs professionally cleaned before your move – you’ll get them back from the cleaners wrapped, rolled and ready for shipping.
  • Area rugs should be loaded last and unloaded first so the furniture coming off the truck can go right on top of the rug.

Packing your Living Room

Most pictures and mirrors can be wrapped and packed in telescoping mirror cartons. Fragile or valuable fine art may require special crating and should be handled by your moving professional.

How to pack Stereo Equipment

Advance preparation is required for compact disc players, digital video disc players and stereo turntables.

On compact and digital video disc players, secure the laser with transport screws located on the bottom or back of the unit.

Most turntables have a plastic lock which should be used to hold the tone arm in place. For additional protection, you may tie a piece of string around the arm in case the lock does not hold. Also, secure the platter (where the records are placed) by tightening the appropriate screws. These are usually located on top of the turntable, but check you owner’s manual if in doubt.

How to pack Speakers

Pack speakers in well-cushioned dish packs.

  • Any large or unusually heavy speakers will simply be padded and placed on the truck.
  • Servicing is usually not required prior to packing for tape deck, receiver or speakers.

How to pack a Television

Some large televisions will need to be crated prior to moving day. Let your moving company know if you have a big screen or plasma television.

  • Call your local cable company to request your service discontinued. If you have a converter box, return the box and keep the receipt for future reference. Contact your cable company at your destination to order service in your new home.
  • When choosing a location for your TV in your new home, place it on a hard surface at least six feet from your normal viewing position. Most TVs should not be placed in an enclosed space unless proper ventilation is provided.
  • Pack your remote controls in the same carton with their corresponding units or pack them all in a clearly marked separate box.

How to pack a Videocassette Recorder (VCR)

No special servicing is required to move a VCR. When installing at destination, place on a hard surface, provide appropriate ventilation for openings and do not set objects on top.

Satellite Dish and Antennas

Contact an electrician or technician from a satellite dish distributorship for the disconnection and disassembly of this sensitive equipment. Depending upon the construction and size of the unit, it may need to be crated, a service which your moving professional can provide. Have any outside antennas disconnected and taken down if they are to be included in your move.

Compact Discs, Tapes and Records

Stand compact discs and records on edge, never flat, on a layer of crushed paper. Support at both ends with large, hardcover books or or several pieces of cardboard cut to fit. Top with another layer of crushed paper. Identify contents on the outside of the box and mark, “FRAGILE.”

  • Cassette tapes should be placed in their cases and wrapped individually in crumpled paper. Place individual tapes either vertically or horizontally on a couple of layers of crushed paper.
  • If records are not in jackets, wrap individually in tissue paper or plastic wrap to protect from scratches. Records are heavy and therefore should be packed in small cartons.

Books

Pack books of the same general size together, in small book cartons.

  • Pack them either flat, or with the spine touching the bottom of the carton. Do not pack with spine facing upward, as glue can break away from the binder.
  • Expensively bound volumes or those of sentimental value should be individually wrapped before packing.

Photographs

Family photographs, videos, slides and negatives should be packed in separate cartons rather than being combined with other households items. (Note: watch these when moving to very hot or humid climates by making sure the storage area protects items from the elements.)

  • Protect framed photos with padding and cushioning, standing them on edge in a carton. Label cartons for easy identification.
  • If possible, carry irreplaceable items with you to destination.

Silk or Artificial Flowers

An arrangement of artificial flowers should be packed in a separate carton. Wrap carefully in plastic wrap, tissue paper or paper towels. If possible, fasten the base of the floral piece to the bottom of the carton to prevent shifting. Label the carton “FRAGILE – THIS SIDE UP.”

Lamp Bases

After removing the light bulb and lamp harp, wrap the base, harp and bulb separately in newsprint. Place them together in a carton, filling voids with wadded paper.

Lamp Shades

Never wrap lamp shades in newspaper, as the ink will soil the shade. Instead, carefully wrap each shade in three or four sheets of tissue paper, a pillowcase or a large lightweight towel.

  • Use a sturdy carton at least two inches bigger all around than the largest shade. Line it with clean paper, using crushed paper under the lamp shade to create a protective layer, but not around the shade. A smaller shade may be nested inside a larger one, provided they do not touch. Only one silk shade should be placed in a carton to avoid stretching the silk.
  • Do not pack other items with shades. Label cartons “LAMP SHADES – FRAGILE – TOP LOAD ONLY.”

Chandeliers and Leaded Glass Shades

It is best to have your moving professional crate large leaded or other glass lamp shades or chandeliers.

Glass Table Tops, Marble Slabs, Large Mirrors, Paintings, Statues & Large Vases

It’s best to consult with your moving professional about custom-made cartons and crates for items of this kind. Paper should never be permitted to touch the surface of an oil painting.

Rugs

Leave area rugs on the floor for the moving company to handle.

  • You may want to consider having your area rugs professionally cleaned before your move – you’ll get them back from the cleaners wrapped, rolled and ready for shipping.
  • Area rugs should be loaded last and unloaded first so the furniture coming off the truck can go right on top of the rug.

TV Stand/ Stereo Cabinet

Remove glass doors if possible and pack in a mirror carton.

Furniture

Your van operator will shrink wrap large, upholstered items.

  • Talk to your moving professional beforehand about any leather items.
  • Table corners can be protected with cardboard.
  • You may want to consider packing couch pillows in large boxes.

Piano

A qualified service provider should take care of the preparations for moving a grand or baby grand piano.

  • Upright (spinet, console, studio) pianos usually do not require preparation in advance. All pianos are pad-wrapped to protect the surface.
  • Plan to have your piano tuned at your new home.

Pool Table

Disassembly and crating of your pool table should be provided by a third-party service. If possible, contact the store where the pool table was purchased to obtain assistance.

  • Crating is a possibility on slate.
  • You will need to make arrangements at destination to have the pool table uncrated, reassembled and leveled.

Back to top

DINING ROOM

The dining room will generally include your most fragile china and crystal stemware. Each item should be carefully wrapped in paper and placed in dish pack cartons; cellular dividers are recommended for stemware. You will also want to include any items with values exceeding $100 per pound on your “High Value Inventory” form to receive proper valuation coverage.

China & Glassware

Wrap all pieces of china and glassware individually. Using several sheets of clean paper, start from the corner, wrapping diagonally and continuously tucking in overlapping edges.

  • A generous amount of paper padding and cushioning is required for all china and glassware.
  • A double layer of newsprint serves well as outer wrapping.
  • Label cartons with room, contents and “FRAGILE – THIS SIDE UP.”

Flat China & Flat Glassware

Place cushioning material in the bottom of a carton. Wrap each piece individually with clean paper, then wrap up to three in a bundle with a double layer of newsprint. Place these bundled items in the carton in a row on edge. Plates, platters and other flat serving pieces should be wrapped individually and loaded vertically on their edges to utilize their own maximum structural strength.

  • Larger china and glass plates, platters and other flat pieces are excellent as the lowest layer in a dish pack.
  • Surround each bundle with crushed paper, being careful to leave no voids or unfilled spaces.
  • Add two or three inches of wadded paper on top of the bundle to protect rims and make a level base for the next tier.
  • Horizontal cardboard dividers can be helpful in keeping layers level.
  • Smaller plates, saucers and shallow bowls could make up a second layer. Wrap and pack in the same way as larger items.

Cups

If not using cellular dividers, wrap cups individually first in a double layer of paper and place them upside down on rims in a row on an upper layer with all handles facing the same direction. Top off the layer with wadded newsprint. Even when using a dish pack and cellular dividers, wrap china cups individually first, protecting handles with an extra layer of clean paper. Then, pack cups upside down.

Silver & Flatware

To protect silver pieces from tarnishing, they should be completely enclosed in newsprint or plastic wrap.

  • Hollow ware — including bowls, tea sets and serving dishes – should be wrapped carefully like fragile items and packed like china.
  • Loose flatware may be wrapped individually or in sets, and in paper, clear plastic or small gift boxes that are then secured with tape.
  • Even if silverware is in a chest, consider wrapping the pieces individually and reposition them in the chest. Or, fill all voids in the chest with newsprint to prevent shifting. The chest can be wrapped in a large bath towel.

Figurines, Curios and Other Delicate Items

Be sure the items are well-protected with plenty of cushioning.

  • Wrap first in tissue paper, paper towels or facial tissue. Then, wrap carefully in paper that has been wadded and flattened out.
  • Small mirrors, plaques and pictures should be wrapped individually in tissue paper with an outer layer of newsprint.
  • A bath towel or small blanket makes an excellent outer wrapping and padding for glass.
  • Place flat items on edge in a carton.

Fragile Items

Consult with your Moving Professional on the packing of exceptionally fragile items. Items with values exceeding $100 per pound need to be listed on your “High Value Inventory” form to receive proper valuation coverage. If an item is extremely valuable as well as delicate, it might be wise to have it packed for you. Special materials might be needed for maximum protection.

Lamp Bases

After removing the light bulb and lamp harp, wrap the base, harp and bulb separately in newsprint. Place them together in a carton, filling voids with wadded paper.

Lamp Shades

Never wrap lamp shades in newspaper, as the ink will soil the shade. Instead, carefully wrap each shade in three or four sheets of tissue paper, a pillowcase or a large lightweight towel.

  • Use a sturdy carton at least two inches bigger all around than the largest shade. Line it with clean paper, using crushed paper under the lamp shade to create a protective layer, but not around the shade.
  • A smaller shade may be nested inside a larger one, provided they do not touch.
  • Only one silk shade should be placed in carton to avoid stretching the silk.
  • Do not pack other items with shades.
  • Label cartons “LAMP SHADES – FRAGILE – TOP LOAD ONLY.”

Chandeliers and Leaded Glass Shades

It is best to have your moving professional crate large leaded or other glass lamp shades or chandeliers.

Glass Table Tops, Marble Slabs, Large Mirrors, Paintings, Statues & Large Vases

It’s best to consult with your moving company about custom-made cartons and crates for items of this kind. Paper should never be permitted to touch the surface of an oil painting.

Table Leaves

Table leaves are best transported in paper pads, then taped to hold the padding in place. (Note: never place tope on the surface of wood.) Don’t use plastic wrap, as moisture may get trapped and damage wood.

Draperies & Curtains

Wardrobe cartons are ideal for moving curtains and drapes. Fold them lengthwise, place over a padded hangar, pin securely and hang in the wardrobe. Draperies and curtains also may be folded and packed in cartons lined with clean paper or plastic wrap.

Rugs

Leave area rugs on the floor for the moving company to handle.

  • You may want to consider having your area rugs professionally cleaned before your move – you’ll get them back from the cleaners wrapped, rolled and ready for shipping.

  • Table corners can be protected with cardboard.
  • You may want to consider packing couch pillows in large boxes.

KITCHEN/LAUNDRY ROOM

Once you know you’re moving, you can begin packing your kitchen almost immediately by starting with your less-used serving dishes, seasonal items and small appliances. Next, tackle your large serving bowls, tablecloths and specialty pots and pans. Keep your everyday dishes for the last week before your move. You may even want to consider buying some disposable plates, cups and utensils for those last few nights when everything is packed away.

Food Items

Use or dispose of all perishables before moving. You will also need to get rid of cleaning products and other kitchen chemicals. See our list of Items That Cannot Be Shipped. Boxed or canned goods should be packed in small boxes. Dispose of any open packages and wrap glass jars to prevent breakage.

China & Glassware

Wrap all pieces of china and glassware individually. Using several sheets of clean paper, start from the corner, wrapping diagonally and continuously tucking in overlapping edges. A double layer of newsprint serves well as outer wrapping.

  • A generous amount of paper padding and cushioning is required for all china and glassware.

  • Smaller plates, saucers and shallow bowls could make up a second layer. Wrap and pack in the same way as larger items.

Bowls and Odd-shaped Items

Depending on their weight, these might be used for either the bottom or middle layers. Wrap the same way as flat plates.

  • Stand shallow bowls (soup plates, etc.) on edge in the carton and deeper ones (such as mixing bowls) nested two or three together, upside down on their rims.
  • Wrap sugar bowl lids in newsprint, turning them upside down on top of bowls. Then, wrap both together in newsprint, followed by a double outer layer. Wrap sugar bowls, cream pitchers, sauce containers, gravy boats and similar pieces in newsprint and then a double outer wrapping. Place all upright in the carton, then top off the layer with wadded newsprint.

Pots & Pans

Pots, pans and similar items should be wrapped and packed in medium size cartons. Depending on their weight, these might be used for either the bottom or middle layers.

Cups

Even when using a dish pack and cellular dividers, wrap china cups individually first, protecting handles with an extra layer of clean paper. Then, pack cups upside down. If not using cellular dividers, wrap cups individually first in a double layer of paper and place them upside down on rims in a row on an upper layer with all handles facing the same direction. Top off the layer with wadded newsprint.

Silver & Flatware

To protect silver pieces from tarnishing, they should be completely enclosed in newsprint or plastic wrap. Hollow ware — including bowls, tea sets and serving dishes – should be wrapped carefully like fragile items and packed like china.

  • Loose flatware may be wrapped individually or in sets, and in paper, clear plastic bags or small gift boxes that are then secured with tape.
  • Even if silverware is in a chest, consider wrapping the pieces individually and repositioning them in the chest. Or, fill all voids in the chest with newsprint to prevent shifting. The chest can be wrapped in a large bath towel.

Figurines and Other Delicate Items

Be sure the items are well-protected with plenty of cushioning.

  • Wrap first in tissue paper, paper towels or facial tissue. Then, wrap carefully in paper that has been wadded and flattened out.
  • Small mirrors, plaques and pictures should be wrapped individually in tissue paper with an outer layer of newsprint.

SMALL APPLIANCES

Moving Appliances

Items such as clocks, small radios and other small appliances should be wrapped individually and packed in a carton cushioned with crushed paper. If their cords disconnect, wrap them in plastic and secure them to the appliance they belong to.

  • Make sure cords are wrapped so as not to scratch or damage items.
  • Steam irons should be emptied of all water, wrapped and placed in the cushioned bottom of a box.

Cookbooks

Pack cookbooks of the same general size together, in small book cartons.

  • Pack books either flat, or with the spine touching the bottom of the carton. Do not pack with spine facing upward, as glue can break away from the binder.
  • Expensively bound volumes or those of sentimental value should be individually wrapped before packing.

Back to top

MOVING APPLIANCES

In preparing large appliances for your move, it is important that they be clean and dry to avoid the build up of mildew and mold. Grease left on a stovetop will catch dust and dirt, and unfortunately, leave spots on anything that it touches. Dry out refrigerators and freezers, especially those that contain an ice maker and are scheduled to be serviced by a third party service provider.

Dishwasher

Clean and dry thoroughly. Disconnect and drain hoses. Leave the door open for a few days prior to the move. Wrap dry hoses in towels and packing paper and place inside the dishwasher.

Washing Machine

Clean and dry thoroughly. Disconnect and drain hoses.

  • Wrap metal connector ends of hoses in a towel and place inside washer.
  • Secure the tub following the manufacturer’s guidelines to prevent swaying. Note: If you don’t have the manufacturers guidelines, you can purchase a washer kit with a manual that provides instructions on how to secure the tub by tightening down the tub using screws. If you prefer not to do it yourself, a third party service provider can be arranged for you by your professional moving estimator.
  • Upon arrival to your new home, have the washer installed by a qualified installer.

Clothes Dryer

Before cleaning, unplug or turn off the dryer from electrical power.

  • Clean the lint screen.
  • Prior to plugging in your electric dryer at your new residence, have your power supply checked for the correct electrical requirements. Tip: If you are moving a gas dryer, the appliance should be disconnected and the gas line capped off by a qualified technician. The driver and the crew members are not qualified to perform this service. Your professional estimator can make the arrangements for you.

Stove Top/Range/Oven

Clean thoroughly. Detach all removable parts and pack safely in a box, clearly marked with the contents.

  • If you are moving a gas range, it must be disconnected prior to moving day by a qualified service technician. The gas line must be properly secured also.
  • If you have an electric range, generally no servicing at your present residence is required.
  • When arriving at your new residence with your gas range, you will need a qualified gas installer to check your gas supply, connect the gas line, seal any openings, light the pilot and handle any other hook-up requirements.

Refrigerator

  • Dispose of all perishables. See our List of Items That Cannot Be Shipped.
  • Unplug the power cord and wash all removable parts and dry thoroughly.
  • Allow the parts, including the interior of the refrigerator and freezer, to dry thoroughly to allow all moisture to evaporate.
  • Pack all loose parts including bins and shelves in a secured, approved container.
  • There are products on the market to help keep your refrigerator clean, dry, and mildew free while in transit. Check your local hardware or grocery store.
  • Vacuum the condenser or compressor.
  • Empty and clean the evaporator pan; allow time for it to dry.
  • Before moving, turn off the water and disconnect the water line if you have a cold water dispenser or automatic ice maker.
  • The water reservoir should also be emptied.
  • If your refrigerator or freezer is an older model, you may have to have the compressor or motor bolted down.
  • At your new destination, allow 24 hours before operating the unit. This will allow time for the oil to settle, preventing possible damage to the compressor.
  • Have ice maker and water dispenser connected to water line by a professional.
  • Copper tubing, a shut off valve and fittings may be required.
  • Once your ice maker is in service, dispose of the first few batches of ice to clear out any impurities from opening the water line.

Microwave Oven

Any glass trays should be removed, wrapped and securely packed in a carton.

  • The microwave can either be placed in its original box, if available and still in good shape, or a well-cushioned carton.
  • If your microwave is large, ask your moving professional if it can be pad-wrapped on moving day.
  • Do not place cardboard in the door opening because it can spring the door during transit.
  • Take care not to block the exhaust vent when installing it at your new home.

Back to top

Insurance

Big Brothers Moving is insured to Texas State Regulations!

 

An important question to have answered before you select a mover is whether or not they are insured. Many moving companies today do not operate with the standard liability insurance required by Texas state law. Obviously accidents do happen, and because of this it is important that your mover carries the appropriate insurance for your moving needs. You can rest assured that Big Brothers Moving has got you covered to Texas State Regulations!

There are three options that we usually recommend to anybody that we move and they are listed below, make sure that you make arrangements at least 48 hours in advance if you choose to use Option 2 below.

Option 1 – This option is the protection that we provide for you, and is standard for the moving industry. This coverage protects you up to 0.60 cents per pound per article. Generally, this will pay for the cost of repairing damaged items, but not for the full cost of replacing them. Obviously there may be items that are not completely covered using this option. Big Brothers Dallas Movers does have a very low claim rate but we still recommend that additional insurance is purchased for items that cannot be protected with our standard liability coverage, this coverage would only be necessary to protect the additional items that would need that extra coverage, or if possible you could move those items using your own vehicle. Option 2 describes how you can purchase additional insurance for those items.

Option 2 – You can use an independent Insurance Agency to cover your most valued assets, or you can purchase enough coverage to fully cover all of your items. If you would like to purchase additional insurance to include full coverage for all items, we recommend using www.movinginsurance.com for additional Cargo Insurance at 1-888-893-8835. Insurance coverage can be purchase entirely through there website. Movinginsurance.com is independent of Big Brothers Movers.

Option 3 – Check with your current homeowner’s insurance. They may already provide coverage for your move. Please check your insurance policy to see if this coverage is already provided to you, and avoid purchasing insurance that you don’t need.

Testimonials – Removalist Central Coast

Removalist Central Coast

All Coast Removals… are an invaluable, dedicated and extremely hard working team for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Julie & Hilary, Interior Makeovers

“As tenants in the rental market, we have moved house 4 times in the last 7 years. We were lucky enough to find All Coast Removals number online and we have used them ever since. Their service is outstanding. The team have turned up on time, every time and the boys have always been polite and courteous. During our last move, we even used All Coast Removals to dismantle pieces of our furniture and reassemble at the new house. Even with the team doing this extra work, the price was still really affordable. We honestly would not hesitate in recommending All Coast Removals and have already passed on their details to our family and friends over the years. They have certainly made the stress and financial burden of moving home so much easier.”

Michael & Kylie Scott

“My wife and I tendered a quote to remove our three bedroom house full of furniture from Avoca Beach to Central Queensland.  We needed someone who would look after our treasured possessions during the move up north. After talking to three or four removalists, I went with my gut feeling and chose Brad from All Coast Removals because of his honesty, professional manner and competitive pricing. As an ex-removalist myself, I wanted someone who would deliver direct and used the correct equipment to do the job properly. All Coast Removals displayed all of these qualities. Unfortunately, the night before the move I suffered a minor stroke and was hospitalised.  I rang Brad who was very sympathetic and informed me my health was more important than the removal of the furniture.  Because of my ill health, we travelled up north having only half packed our items.  Brad took control, packing and loading all of our furniture without our presence and transferred them to our new home in Central Queensland.  He arrived on time and unloaded all our goods in excellent condition and went even beyond what was negotiated by wrapping our pictures and including pot plants which we had overlooked during this stressful time. All Coast Removals provided us with an excellent and very professional service which I highly recommend to anyone considering moving as their care and consideration saved my wife and I much stress. I would be happy to give a verbal reference if required.”

Steven & Joanne Rogers

“I would like to thank Brad Wilkinson and the team at All Coast Removals for their efforts in moving some personal items for me from Melbourne to the Central Coast. Although I considered the job to be very small, Brad treated the whole thing with the utmost of care and attention to detail making sure that the move went without any hitches.  Nothing seemed to be a problem and Brad was even kind enough to contact me while he was on holidays to let me know where things were at. I have no hesitation in referring Brad to all of my friends and business colleagues.  No matter how large or small your job, if you are looking for personalized, professional service, Brad Wilkinson and the team at All Coast Removals are the ones to call”. 

Warren Garth, Managing Director, Cats Accountants

“We can’€™t recommend Brad and his team at All Coast more highly. Their piano moving expertise shows respect for the instrument and our customers are always thrilled by their efficient, friendly and reliable service. Even in some very challenging deliveries, All Coast have managed to think outside the square and get the job done”.

Why choose Aussie Man and Van as your removal company?

London has a special place in our hearts.

We offer a removals package that is tailored to your needs so you aren’t paying for a service you don’t need.
