In this blog entry, the expert TriState area residential moving service and interstate moving service team here at Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage will detail some effective tips for the challenging process of moving bulky household items from one State to another.

Why is it challenging to move bulky household items from one State to another?

One of the biggest challenges to moving bulky items from one State to another is the size and weight of the items, which can make them very hard to transport. Some bulky items can be very fragile and need special handling to prevent damage during the transit process. These items need the proper packing materials and make sure that the items are secure inside the moving truck. The size of the moving truck can also potentially pose a challenge, especially if you have to drive down narrow roads or have limited parking.

 

It can also be easy to injure yourself when lifting or moving heavy items by yourself. Without the proper equipment, ,this shouldn’t be attempted. 

 

If you need to move bulky household items you should:

  1. Contact a trusted moving company to assist with moving bulky items to another State
  2. Work with proper packing materials to prevent damage
  3. Use the right tools to disassemble some items
  4. Use the proper equipment to move and lift bulky items to stop injuries

 

Decluttering When Packing

You need to plan moves properly. Getting ready to move is the best time to get rid of clutter and items that you don’t want anymore. Choose to give away, sell, or donate items you don’t want to keep. If you’re not sure how to relocate or pack bulky items, contact Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage for expert packing and storage services.

 

Make sure that you have the proper packing materials like heavy duty boxes, packing tape, and bubble wrap. Clean items before packing, and disassemble items that you can to make it easier to transport. Use bubble wrap or foam padding to protect fragile items, and use moving blankets or furniture pads. Evenly distribute weight evenly in every box, and avoid overpacking. Label every box with its interior contents and what room it belongs to. Create an inventory to make sure that no items are lost or damaged during the move.
