7 Hardest Items to Pack

Getting ready for a move is always a daunting task. It’s even more overwhelming when you walk through the house and realize you have to actually pack up and move that massive mirror on the wall or that heirloom armoire that is impossible to lift.

We are here to help! If you have any of the items below, you’ll want to give us a call. Sometimes those do-it-yourself ideas are better left to professionals. We promise it’ll make your life a whole lot easier.

1. Grand piano

With such an odd shape, extreme weight and sentimental value, you’ll want to be completely certain that your piano survives a move. If you have to move it between floors, you’ll definitely want a professional working with a crane to lift that piano where you need it. We promise, you don’t want to try to this on your own.

2. Grandfather clocks

Bet you didn’t know that a grandfather clock has to be disassembled entirely with gloved hands before you can move it. Sound like a headache? That’s because it is. We know you want to keep that grandfather clock in ship shape, so let us help you pack up and move it in the safest way possible.

3. Televisions and computer monitors

Whether you have the big old box from twenty years ago or the brand new curved plasma screen, televisions are prone to damage during the moving process. The same is true for computer monitors. The fragile screens can be easily damaged, even if they are packed securely in a blanket and box. We have a few tricks up our sleeves to make sure your TV isn’t damaged during the move.

4. Fish aquarium

There are a few options, the first one being to sell the aquarium to someone who will continue to love your fish as their own. Fish rarely survive moving, so this is the best option for a lot of people. However, if those fish hold your heart, keep the fish in a holding container and drain most of the tank. We can help you make sure your fish tank and its occupants survive the trip.

5. Art

From professional paintings, to kindergarten projects, to sentimental sculptures, your household art requires extra care and love if it is to survive the trip. We have plenty of bubble wrap, newspaper, and boxes to cushion everything along with the expertise to know how to pack your treasures.

6. Workout equipment

Treadmills are heavy, weight systems have the strangest shapes, and stationary bikes have pieces that can move randomly. Take a break from your typical workout and let us do the heavy lifting for you when it comes to moving your workout room.

7. Large appliances

There are always so many electronic parts to deal with on your washer and refrigerator. Plus, they weigh a lot. We’re talking around 250 pounds a lot. No one wants to deal with that on their own. We’ll make sure everything is padded, safe and snug for your move.

There are plenty of other things that aren’t fun to move on your own. Check out this list from How Stuff Works and let us help you pack smart!
