Making Smooth Transitions to Chambersburg & Shippensburg

As relocation experts for Chambersburg, Shippensburg, Greencastle, and Waynesboro, our team is often asked what moving tips we offer to our clients. Below is a list of helpful moving tips to help reduce your stress during your move to (or from) Cumberland and Franklin Counties.

If you have solicited a professional moving company to coordinate your move, they will use only sturdy, reinforced cardboard cartons to move your personal belongings. The boxes you obtain from your neighborhood supermarket or liquor store might be free, however they are not nearly as strong as they should be to protect your valuables from damage while in transit.

If you are responsible for packing your own personal items, we recommend these protective measures (and FREE Resources):

  • If you’re making a local move, why not reserve our *FREE Moving Van.
  • Do you need a local storage facility?  If so, why not use our *FREE Storage Services.

  • Be sure to use bubble wrap, blankets, sheets, pillows, and towels to separate pictures and other fragile objects from each other and the sides of the carton.

  • Pack all plates and glass objects upright, rather than flat or stacked.

If you’re using a professional mover, be sure to identify the boxes you packed, and make sure those boxes are marked fragile. If those items are exceptionally valuable, be sure to let your driver know which boxes contain high-value items. Often the mover will advise you if those valuables need to be repacked in stronger boxes, and if they are covered under their transit insurance policy if you have elected to obtain coverage.
