Wondering how best to move all your belongings into your new home? You’re in the right place. Our household movers at J.D. Carton & Son are here to help make the process a breeze. Whether you choose us as your full-service movers or not, we’re here with advice on how to keep big and fragile items safe. These items include large screen TVs, artwork, large mirrors, and pieces of art.

To keep everything secure, it’s important to take care of your belongings from the very beginning until the very end. Let’s take a closer look, so you can make your upcoming move a breeze.

Start Your Move on the Right Foot

Before you even begin packing, the very first thing you should do is document all your items and the condition they are in. That way, you can know exactly what you’re relocating and if anything sustained new damages.

Once that’s done, discuss valuation coverage options with your chosen local movers. By law, all moving companies offer basic coverage, which will reimburse you based on the weight of your items. For more comprehensive coverage, however, you should look for full valuation coverage, so you can get back the full value of your item should anything happen during the move.

Use the Best Packing Materials

Next, it’s time to pack. Even if you hire professional movers, you may want to do the packing on your own. If that’s the case, it’s crucial to use the right materials for your items. Lucky for you, our team at J.D. Carton sells new and used packing materials, so you can get everything you need for your upcoming relocation. Some helpful supplies to use include…

  • Custom Wooden Crates
  • Specially Sized Boxes
  • Protective Moving Pads
  • …and more!
