    Packing Your Clothing Like a Pro

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Moving is often ranked as one of the most stressful life experiences, but it doesn’t have to be! Watch this video for helpful tips on how to pack your clothing before your next move.

    Before you start packing your clothing, it’s a good idea to go through your closets and dressers to find clothes that you haven’t worn in a year. You can donate your old clothes to charities and those in need. Get new cardboard boxes so that you don’t risk staining your clothes with used ones, and group your hanging items together with twist ties and standard garbage bags. Inexpensive clothing items like t-shirts can be put in a bag and transported easily on moving day.

    Ayer Moving & Storage begins all of our moves with pre-move counseling, which we can use to help you come up with a plan for your entire moving process. Call us at (978) 772-2558 or visit our website to learn more about all of the ways we can help you take the stress out of moving.

    How to Prepare Your Family Pet for a Long Distance Move

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Moving can be a stressful experience, whether you’re moving across town to Harvard or across the country. When you take into account how stressful it is for you, imagine what it’s like for your pet! You can make the decision to uproot your life, and your animal will be along with you for the ride no matter what. Moving can make your pet anxious and fearful, so here are some handy tips on how to prepare your pet for a long-distance move.

    Maintain Your Routine
    Animals are creatures of habit, and any variations to their normal routines can be upsetting to them. Even though you are moving, it’s a good idea to try to stick to your normal routine as much as possible. Walk your dog at the same times you usually do, and wait to pack up your pet’s bedding and toys until you absolutely have to. Having something familiar going on in the midst of the hectic moving process can help your animal experience less stress.

    Get New Identification
    Losing a pet can be devastating, which is why many pet owners choose to have their pets microchipped. If your pet does not have a microchip yet, consider having this done at your veterinarian before your long-distance move. For animals that already have a chip, be sure to update your contact information with the microchip company just in case Fido or Fluffy gets lost after you get to your new house. You should also get your pet new tags with your updated address and phone number, if applicable.

    Make Arrangements for Moving Day
    When moving day finally arrives, you should have a plan in place for your pet. You may want to put your furry friend in a room by himself with food and water so he won’t be disturbed by your movers or tempted to run out. Once your belongings are packed up in the moving truck, you can proceed with transporting your pet by air or car when you head to your new house.

    At Ayer Moving & Storage, we understand that moving can be an overwhelming process. That’s why we provide exceptional service and reliable moving professionals to make your move hassle-free. Call us at (978) 772-2558 to learn more about our commitment to customer satisfaction.

    Ensure a Safe Move by Leaving These Items Behind

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Packing your home to move can be a large undertaking, whether you’re moving out of an apartment or a house. It’s important to keep your belongings safe when you move, which is just one reason to hire experienced professional movers to transport your possessions. Though many of your possessions probably include clothing, books, and household items, there are certain items that should not be transported to keep everyone involved in your move safe. Combustible products such as lighter fluid, ammunition, and matches should not be packed or shipped when you are moving. Aerosol cans should also be left out, regardless of what they contain. Propane or oxygen tanks, ammonia, bleach, and chlorine powders can be hazardous and should not be packed up when you’re getting ready to move.

    If you have any questions about whether some of your items are safe to move, ask the moving experts at Ayer Moving & Storage. Give us a call at (978) 772-2558 with any concerns you may have. Don’t forget to ask about our packing services that will make your move as stress-free as possible!
