Execu-move has compiled a few Moving Solutions hints and tips to help you make your move as stress-free as possible.
If you are doing your own packing, please check the following:
Use strong cartons, as the packing boxes will be stacked in the removal vehicle.
Do not pack too many heavy items in one carton.
Pack room by room. This ensures less confusion at your destination.
Mark each carton with the contents and from which room it was packed.
Use only clean, unprinted newsprint for packing. It will not stain the items.
Ask your children to write your new address on the cartons. It will help them remember their new address.
All packing material is available from us.
When moving with a PC, you should do the following:
Make a backup of all the important information that’s on your computer and store on a cloud service or portable external hard drive.
When packing, make sure that you pack all the cables, mouse and keyboard in one box to make reassembling easier at your new home.
When moving a printer, you need to remove the ink cartridges and place them in a plastic container. This will help prevent a leak that could damage your printer and other effects
Pack the PC into a sturdy box that will protect it. If you do not have a suitable box, Execu-move can provide one.
When moving with plants, you should keep the following in mind:
Place the plants carefully into a carton. The carton will help keep the temperature down and keep the plants safe from damage.
Dampen the soil of the plants before you pack them. (Do not water them too much as excess water will seep through or spill over and may damage the carton and your effects)
When unpacking, do not expose the plants to too much direct sunlight immediately as this may cause them to wilt.
When moving with pets, you should keep the following in mind:
Pets should either be micro-chipped or have identification tags on at all times.
Pets cannot travel in the removal van. If needed, Execu-move can make the necessary arrangements for your pets to move by air.
If you are taking your pets in your car, make sure your pet has a leash on at all times when out of the vehicle to ensure that they do not dash off the minute you open the door.
Consult your veterinary surgeon for a sedative that can be administered to the pets for the duration of the trip.
If your pet is traveling with you, make sure you have a bowl for water and a few treats for when you make stops.
