Packing

Get Ahead of the Pack

When it comes to moving, packing is usually the most time-consuming. If you find yourself distressed about your packing project, then let us pack for you. Our full and partial packing services offer you flexibility in how much you would like to handle, and how much you would rather not worry about. We train our employees to be diligent packers so you can trust your belongings are safe in transit and delivery.

After the move, you are left with a legion of boxes that need unpacking. Although the inclination may be to unpack everything as quickly as possible, you will need to take it one room at a time, and one day at a time. However, if the time or patience for this does not exist, then we are happy to assist with the unpacking as well. We can do as much or as little as you wish, whether it is the entire home or certain rooms, such as the kitchen or bedroom. The final result gets you back into a normal routine.

8 Critical Things You Need To Prepare For Movers

Getting ready to move? Here’s 8 tips on moving effectively while using a moving company like us.

Be Thorough

  • When hiring a mover, make sure you and the company are fully aware of all property to be moved
  • Often, a mover can do an in-home or video tour
  • Don’t always choose the lowest price, that doesn’t mean the best

Review Their Estimate

  • Even if you feel you talked about everything, review the estimate
  • Walk through your house and property to check off any line items
  • Make note of additional concerns and contact the mover

If Possible, Make an Inventory

  • The average American home has a lot of individual items
  • Inventory as much as possible, emphasizing your expensive items
  • This allows you to check your moved property at your new location to make sure everything made it

If You are Packing, Pack Smart

  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box
  • Give plenty of time for your kitchen
  • Pack important and sentimental in specially marked boxes for easy access
  • Make sure the movers leave boxes you need quickly closest to the door.

Establish a Set Moving Date as Soon as Possible.

  • You don’t want the date to be a guess.
  • You need to be mentally prepared for the move.
  • Make time to prepare your home and pack certain special, fragile objects. This is never good to do in a rush.

Know What Cannot Be Transported

  • Ask your mover for a list of things they won’t move
  • It’s usually chemicals or money and varies with each mover
  • Contact us to talk about items you might have concerns with

Create a Packing Plan

  • While the mover may do most of the packing, have a plan
  • We have done a lot of moves but we don’t know your preferences
  • If possible, email it to the mover before the moving day

Establish Knowledge about Insurance

  • Talk to your mover about insurance
  • Ask what it does and does not cover

Ethan, John and Jordan moved us from Madison AL to New Market. They were courteous, fast, and did not damage anything. We have used other movers in the past, including one of the local competitors. The crew from This Side Up was fantastic. If you are moving, I would highly recommend This Side Up Moving and Storage.

Wonderful staff, wonderful move. On time, better than estimated and very professional. I worried about Tropical Storm Elsa riding up the coast and following the truck and team. But Alex and his team went the extra "mile" to beat the storm and unload etc. Thanks everyone at This Side Up.

First and foremost, when I called I was super last minute with the move and all my details. Kristy was extremely accomodating and made sure every detail was accounted for. On the day of the move the guys gave me a call and arrived in an extremely prompt manner. Brett, Jay and Tyler H were AMAZING! They cared for our items as if they were their own, they were extremely attentive and moved everything swiftly and meticulously. This was the best moving experience I have had by a long shot. If you're looking for a moving company these are the guys for you.

They were on time. Crews were courteous and efficient. The office personnel were always easy and pleasant to work with. During packing and loading Brett was patient and listened to any concerns. Torry worked diligently packing, loading, driving and unloading. Marcus helped with the packing and unloading into storage. Torry and Marcus arrived on time at the storage facility and worked hard. They were never discourteous and it was hot. I do not remember his name but during the loading a young man nicknamed Popeye also worked very hard but always with a smile.

Zac and Marcus with This Side Up saved me! My husband had to leave early for his work trip and we were not able to finish our move, so we called This Side Up and the next day they made an opening to come and help me move the rest of my furniture, washer/dryer, and freezer! Zac and Marcus not only took a huge weight off but were extremely professional! I have moved several times prior and were not impressed with the movers we hired but lets just say if we ever need moving assistance again This Side Up would be the team we would call!! Thank you so much Zac and Marcus for all of your help and taking a huge stress load off my back! Keep up the amazing work!!
