Moving FAQ: How Do I Move My Big And Awkward Belongings?
August 21, 2013
At Long Island Moving and Storage, we frequently get questions about moving large and awkward items. If you have a lot of belongings that you plan to move, chances are you have at least a couple items that seem awkward to pack. Here are answers to some of the top questions we get here at Long Island Moving and Storage to help you plan to move some of the more odd or awkward items you have inside your home.
Q: Can I move my water bed?
A: Yes, we move waterbeds! We do ask that you do a little planning ahead of time, however. Before we pack it, the water needs to be drained completely. If you have a fiber-filled waterbed, you should have it professionally vacuum drained before your moving date; this can help eliminate the awkwardness of moving such a large item.
Q: My dresser is huge; how do I pack this?
A: At Long Island Moving and Storage, we do things differently. Most companies require that you empty out each and every drawer of your dresser before moving. We know that this can be time consuming both while packing and unpacking, so we don’t require that you do this! You can keep your dresser drawers they way you like them and we’ll be happy to move them for you.
Q: I want to take some appliances with me; how do I prep them for my big move?
A: Moving appliances can be tricky, but it can be done! Before moving, your appliances must be disconnected and if you are moving a washer, you must have a stabilizer installed. Check with your service representative for the specifics, but they can help you find someone local that can help prepare your appliances for your relocation.
