Helping You Pack Your Items Efficiently

Our professionals at Prime Residential Movers offer expert packing services at affordable rates. For those looking to do the packing themselves, here are a few helpful tips:

  • Dispose of, donate, or sell unwanted articles before moving to streamline packing.
  • Loosely wrap glass, stoneware, and most delicate items using two layers of plain paper or eco-friendly fabric-- clean towels work nicely.
  • Wrapping items in newsprint may leave spots on particular items, so it is ideal to use newsprint for items that can be wiped off easily, such as knives or certain ceramics.
  • Don’t bag your loose items. Use boxes.
  • Tape boxes around 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 tiny parts from disassembled furniture and equipment in small clear plastic bags. There is nothing more annoying than trying to assemble furniture only to realize you're missing half the screws, so be certain to consider that ahead of time.
  • Transport jewelry, money, and valuables in your automobile. For your more valuable (and fragile) possessions, Prime Residential Movers urges keeping them with you at all times during the move.
  • Organize and label electronics and cables before your move for a simple set up in your new home. Cables tend to become extremely tangled, so taking measures to minimize this will save you some grief when it comes time to unpack.
  • Pack food firmly in sealed bags for extra protection. Moving may take a lot out of you, so we propose packing some snacks to carry with you, to keep your blood sugar and mood up throughout.
  • Pack and indicate a box for ESSENTIALS you will need immediately once you arrive at your new home.
  • Pack supplies that you’ll need immediately in a separate box to be unloaded first at your new home.
  • Label packed boxes by rooms and chose a different color for each room

Flammable Items to Pack

Flammable Items That You Should Not Pack

  • Paint/Thinner
  • Aerosol Cans
  • Cleaning Fluid
  • Propane Tanks
  • Corrosive Liquids

Take Note of These Important Reminders

  • Notify all pertinent government agencies, banks, lenders, gas, water, phone, cable, and online providers of your relocation. Doing this before your next billing date will stop significant documents from being lost in the mail, as well as minimizing the disruption in your services.
  • Defrost and clean refrigerator(s) before moving day, and also decrease the amount of perishable food that you buy, since it can attract a whole zoo of creatures you likely want to avoid in your new Gainesville, FL home.
  • Empty fuel from lawnmower, power tools, kerosene lamps, and grills.
  • Plan the placement of furniture or equipment in your new location so our movers may accommodate you.
