Using Movers Is The Best Choice

Moving is life's third most stressful event.

But it does not have to be. Hiring the right professional movers is the right move. Pun intended. But won't it cost an arm and a leg? Isn't it best to move myself? Isn't it impossible to find trustworthy movers? No, no, and no. Professional movers bring:

Peace of mind. Have you considered the physical and mental stress associated with moving yourself? Not to mention taking time off or giving up a weekend or more to complete the job. Plus, the average local move only costs $500. We think you are worth it too!
 
Convenience. You could spend countless hours researching moving checklists, purchasing supplies, coordinating a U-Haul, packing and moving. Or you could book movers in 3 clicks (we are online) and then not lift another finger.

Reliability. Contracting your friends and family to assist with your move is all well and good, until someone no-shows or drops your big screen TV. Elite professional moving companies are punctual, insured, and experienced to ensure your valuables arrive safely.

However, if you are not careful, your belongings could wind up in the wrong hands. For this reason, Moovdit is offering free insurance and license verification for any California companies. Moovdit is bringing integrity and innovation to an industry in desperate need of a revolution.

How To Pack A Box

  1. Determine what needs to be packed in a box and what will be padded and wrapped by your movers. As a general rule your movers will take care of all furniture and major appliances.
  2. Go room by room and group items of similar size and weight. Keeps rooms in separate boxes will make it easier to unpack on their other end.
  3. First, pour a layer of packing peanuts or place a two- or three-inch layer of crushed paper in the bottom of the box for cushioning.
  4. Wrap heaviest items first with bubble wrap or packing paper and place them in the bottom of the box.
    • Wrapping Tip: Start by placing a small stack of paper on a table or countertop. Glasses and jars can be rolled up in two or three sheets of paper; always begin from a corner of the sheet and fold the sides in as you roll.
    • For large or odd-shaped items place them in the center of the sheet and bring the corners together. (It may be necessary to flip the item over and wrap it again from the other side.) If in doubt, use more paper! When the corners come together, secure them with tape.
  5. Wrap additional, lighter items with bubble wrap or packing paper and separate them from items in the bottom of the box with cushion foam.
  6. Fill in any voids and top off loaded cartons with wadded paper. Then tape cartons securely to avoid shifting while en route.
  7. Before closing your box, cushion the entire package filling lany voids and the top with packing peanuts or crumpled packing paper to prevent shifting and damage to your goods.
  8. Your filled box should not weigh more than about 30 pounds. Under packed boxes may collapse in transit, while over packed boxes can rupture, damaging belongings.
  9. Close the box and seal it with sturdy packing tape.
  10. Label the box with its contents and destination room.
