Denver Movers Provide Tips For Packing Difficult Items

Some personal belongings, such as clothing and linens, are fairly easy to pack. Denver movers can pack these items in cardboard boxes and load them onto the back of a moving truck. However, many other personal belongings are more difficult to pack because they are oddly shaped, heavy, or fragile. Make sure all of your items arrive safely to your new home by following these tips for packing difficult items:

Books

Books are not oddly shaped or fragile, but they can be cumbersome when placed inside a cardboard box. Instead of packing them in boxes, put them inside rolling suitcases. Once the books are inside rolling suitcases, you can roll the suitcases to the moving truck instead of having to lift heavy boxes.

Televisions

The bigger a TV is, the more difficult it is to move. To make it easier, visit a local home improvement store and look for cardboard boxes specifically designed for TVs. These come in all different sizes, so be sure to choose a box designed to fit the size of the TV you are trying to move. These boxes have padding on the inside so that they will protect your fragile TV during the move. See more tips to pack difficult items for a long-distance move.

Knives

It can be challenging to pack kitchen knives because they are sharp enough to cut through packing materials. Instead of trying to wrap knives in bubble wrap or moving blankets, put them inside your toolbox. This is a great way to keep them safe during the move, but be sure to put them in the dishwasher before using them again.

Plants

Do you have potted plants that you would like to bring with you to your new home? Safely moving these plants requires a bit of planning. About a week or two before your move, transfer the potted plants into plastic planters. Ceramic pots are fragile and more difficult to move, which is why it’s recommended that you switch to plastic planters. Doing this a few weeks before the move will give your plants plenty of time to adjust to their new environment.

On moving day, make sure these plants are in the car with you instead of in the back of a moving truck. Keep the car at a comfortable temperature and drive slowly, so the plants do not topple over. Once you’ve arrived at your new home, the plants can be moved back into their ceramic pots.

Jewelry

Earrings, bracelets, and necklaces can get tangled during a move, even if they are safely stored inside a jewelry box. To prevent this problem, pack your jewelry inside egg cartons. It may feel odd putting your jewelry inside an egg carton, but this is the perfect way to separate your jewelry and prevent it from getting tangled.

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!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable.

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.
