FULL PACKING AND MOVING SERVICE

Proper packing supplies is a key to a successful move. Allowing Bespoke Moving to do your packing will also save you time when you need it most.

We can pack your whole residence or office starting with glassware and ending with furniture. Please note that packing is a time consuming part of the move; so, please, provide us as much information as possible in regards of your packing needs. And we will do our best making sure to have all your valuable things protected. 

The best way to move electronic components is in their original cartons with the original packaging materials. You can do this yourself but if you don’t have these cartons, Bespoke can carefully pack everything in your entertainment center.

Mirrors and artwork require extra protection. And we will provide you the best service of protecting them. Wardrobe-boxes will be provided to move your clothing in a proper way.

MOVING TIPS

Move items of exceptional value (jewelry, cash, laptops, passports, birth certificates etc.) by yourself.
____________________________________________________

Empty all furniture drawers. The extra weight of clothing and miscellaneous items is very stressful to your furniture as well as your movers.
____________________________________________________

Wardrobe boxes are large boxes used to transport your hanging closet clothing. We will provide at least 5 of them. Let us know if you need more. Usually 1.5ft of average stuffed clothing is good for one wardrobe box.
____________________________________________________

Do not forget to change your residential and mailing addresses with USPS and DMV.
____________________________________________________

Try to visit your new place before the move; so, you would have a good idea where you want your furniture to be placed. Making such decisions on the moving date may consume the time. If this is not possible – no worries – Bespoke Movering will give you good advice. We move hundreds of offices, studios, lofts and houses per year.
____________________________________________________

Get some water and snacks for yourself as it may be inconvenient for you to cook during the move.

____________________________________________________

Arrival time is provided as a time window. Do not panic if it is 9 a.m. but you do not see a moving truck. Your arrival time may be scheduled between 9a.m. and 10a.m. Nevertheless, contact us if you have any concerns.
____________________________________________________

Fragile items should be wrapped in a few layers of paper with some extra cushioning. Make sure to fill any hollow spaces with crushed paper.
____________________________________________________

Use standard moving boxes. It will be easier and faster to stack them inside of the truck.
____________________________________________________

Make sure both ends of boxes are taped securely.
____________________________________________________

Place heavier items such as books in small boxes.
____________________________________________________

Label all boxes: fragile, kitchen, kid’s bedroom, dinning room, etc.
____________________________________________________

Make sure you can close boxes easily and that nothing is sticking out through the top or bottom of each box.
____________________________________________________

After loading is done do a final walk-through with the movers to make sure that all the items have been loaded.
____________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

 

Make your reservation for a move in advance: usually 2-4 weeks prior to a moving date would be ideal.
____________________________________________________

Arrange parking places for a moving truck at all places you want movers to stop. In most cases we use 24ft box trucks which are in reality are about 35ft bumper-to-bumper long. In some cases you will need to ask your HOA or property management staff for reserving a time slot for a loading dock or white zone parking place. Sometimes (especially if you live on a busy street where it is hard or even impossible to find parking or a regular day) you will need to contact local municipal authorities or local police station to obtain a parking permit. Parking permit is not refundable; so, you would need to take care of this. Usually five business days is required for an application for a parking permit to be approved.  Please try to take care of parking in advance. We want your move would go as stress-free as possible. If needed we will send smaller trucks (16ft, 18ft or 20ft) and do your move with a few trips.
____________________________________________________

Notify us about heavy items (more than 200 pounds); so adequate manpower will be provided.
____________________________________________________

Notify about bulky items, too. Even a regular couch may be considered bulky if you divve in a Victorian house and there will
not be possible to bring such item into an apartment.
____________________________________________________

If you have difficult access to your current or new place: hilly and/or narrow roads, low hanging tree branches
____________________________________________________

In case of long-distance move we encourage to schedule in-person/in-home estimate with one of our representatives. If you do not have more than 10 pieces of furniture to move and not more than 30 boxes then you may skip this step; however, be very specific with providing a full inventory list.

____________________________________________________

If you want Bespoke Moving to pack for you it may be a good idea to split a move into two days if you have much stuff to pack and/or long walking/carry distance. Call our office to provide more details and we will advise you.
____________________________________________________

Check manuals for appliances and other big equipment (exercise machines, for instance) if any special tools are needed.
____________________________________________________

Moving appliances such as fridges, washing and drying machines may require new connectors to water and gas supply systems. If you can not perform installation by yourself then hiring a licensed plumber or ‘appliance’ man would be needed. 
____________________________________________________

Pack essentials including medicine in a separate box and label them. If you ask your movers to move such box or boxes ask them to load them last; so, it would be the first items for unloading.
____________________________________________________
If you move firearms then make sure that they are unloaded and kept in a secured lock box or safe.
