How to move the awkward things in your house – some moving tips

Sometimes moving awkward objects can be the bane of moving day. Not everyone realizes until it is time to move that large or oddly shaped items have special needs and being prepared for those needs will help everything go much more smoothly.

Your aquarium may be the centerpiece of your house and the pride of your aquascaping community but before you do the necessary things such as drain and transfer all of the fish to their temporary homes you should know that for adequate protection, aquariums need a special box. Some good moving tips include the fact that these mirror boxes are designed specifically to protect glass and can be purchased online or directly from moving companies, such as Arrow Moving and Storage. Our professionals will make sure no cracks appear in your aquatic garden.

No magnificent entryway or dining room is complete without a crystal chandelier. While they do add elegance to a room, crystal or glass chandeliers are not known for being easy or straightforward to pack. According to our moving tips you should make sure you wrap each glass or crystal component individually to ensure the best protection in a moving truck. It also helps to cut down existing boxes to match the size of your chandelier to guarantee a secure fit. Take care to pack newspaper or other padding in any empty space to keep everything movement free.

Potted plants may be the most common household items that are prickly to pack. While making their way to your new home you don’t want your plants to experience shock and lose their flowers and leaves. If we can give you some moving tips, the best thing to do is to make sure you recreate the environment your tender plants are accustomed to while they make the journey. This might seem difficult but if you wrap a sheet or paper around the leaves to make sure they are protected. Large trash bags are great for this sort of thing.

Instruments are some of the most fragile items people have. While moving a piano is a job recommended for professionals, smaller instruments require special care to keep them safe. For example, moving a guitar is easier if you loosen the strings and maybe even pack the body full of shirts to keep any vibrations from causing cracks. Instruments are safest when there is no room for stray vibrations.

Are you an art buff and have more than just the standard size paintings or photo prints hanging on your walls? Maybe you even have life-size cardboard cutouts of your favorite movie heroes that need extra protection on moving day. For the precious paintings it is best to use some bubble wrap and moving blankets to make sure everything is both padded and packed tightly. Arrow Moving can provide you with both. For the larger things such as cardboard cutouts try placing them between your mattress and your box spring with a bit of padding to keep things from getting bent.
