6 best moving tools

When you’re moving, it’s tempting to pack up all of your belongings and let your moving company take care of moving them to your new home. While this is fine for most of your items, some things need to be left out and brought to your new home in the trunk of your car. Believe it or not, your tools are some of the most important things to keep handy during a move, but you don’t have to bring the entire toolbox. Here are a few of the most useful items to set aside and keep handy during the packing and moving process.

Scissors

Last-minute labels and tape strips are much easier to use when you have a pair of scissors on hand to cut them down to size. You don’t need heavy-duty blades, either. Your standard household or craft scissors will do the trick.

Hammers

One of the easiest ways to make a new house feel like home is to hang your artwork. Doing this while hunting for a hammer hiding somewhere in one of the boxes your moving company unloaded can only drag out the process. Pull the hammer out and set it aside. This way, you’ll know where it is the minute you need it.

Screwdriver

Loose screws have a way of popping up when you’re moving furniture around the house. Leaving them loose while you pack up puts your furniture at risk for damage both on the truck and at your new home. Leave your screwdriver out and take care of loose screws as soon as you find them. This may seem like work, but you’ll thank yourself for it once you reach your new house.

Leather Gloves

You know that leather gloves can mean the difference between getting cuts and leaving your hands undamaged if you do much work outside or with rough materials. When you’re moving, your leather gloves can help make lifting heavy loads easier while also keeping the back of your hands from getting scraped against the wall or doorframe. Pull your gloves out of the toolbox and tuck them in your back pocket while moving boxes around.

Allen Wrench

If you’ve ever put furniture together, you know just how important an Allen wrench can be. When moving, you’ll have to disassemble and reassemble multiple pieces of furniture, and keeping that Allen wrench out and close at hand can make it that much easier to get settled into your new space.

Reusable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do when working on your house or moving out of it. Instead of using disposable water bottles that you have to find a way to toss away in the chaos of the move, keep your reusable water bottle on hand. You can refill it as needed throughout the day.

Planning an upcoming move is stressful no matter how prepared you feel, but you don’t have to handle the packing and unpacking on your own. Contact us today for a free no-obligation moving estimate.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
