Your boss called you in to her office yesterday and told you that you have been given a promotion, but you would be moving to Nashville to take up the new assignment. You do not quite know whether to feel happy or nervous. The thought of moving has always given you sleepless nights. On all the previous occasions, it has taken you up to six months to open up your boxes, find all your things and put them where they were supposed to be.
Add to that the stress of finding an apartment to live in and the fact that the boss has said that you need to report to Nashville in seven days. Where do you begin?
Should You First Find An Apartment?
If you are new to Nashville, it might be better for you to first move there, stay there for a couple of weeks and then decide where you would like to live.
If you choose this option, you might want a place to store your furniture and other personal belongings. A self storage unit located in Nashville would work well for you. According to your needs, you can choose between basic self storage units, a climate controlled unit, a unit with video surveillance or even one with laser grid access control. Self storage units also have facilities to store your car and RVs.
How Do You Move Your Things?
Before, you may have always packed your things yourself and then hired a truck to just move the boxes, but you might be better off hiring specialized packers and movers this time round. Nashville packers and movers specialize in the business of packing and moving and will ensure that all your belongings are packed well and then moved without any damage.
Packers have their specialized way of packing and labeling all your belongings so that you will know exactly which carton your DVD collection is in, where your spices are and even where the papers from your writing desk are.
If you have chosen at first to place your belongings in a self storage unit, your packer will place all your boxes in such a unit. Once you have located an apartment you would like to live in, the packer will again move your belongings from the self storage unit to the house.
Services Offered By Packers
Packers have a well-defined and methodical way of packing all belongings of a house. They usually go room by room. They first pack, then box and clearly label each box. This makes unpacking a very easy process.
They use specialized packing material for packing fragile items, glassware and other delicate items such as china and antiques. Furniture with glass tops and mirrors are handled differently from other types of furniture. Large glass tops and large mirrors are often put into wooden crates such that no damage occurs while loading and unloading.
Experienced packers and movers completely take away the agony and stress of moving, leaving you free to concentrate on other more important things. Moving to Nashville can be a straightforward and painless exercise if you let a packing and moving company take care of everything.
