Moving is one of the top ten most stressful life experiences. Here’s how to pack it up without wanting to pack it in.
Invest in professional wardrobe boxes. They come with heavy-duty clothing rods, so you can transport much of your wardrobe without getting it wrinkled.
Gather your hanging clothes in bunches of 5 to 15 (depending on the thickness of the clothes), and secure the hangers with twist ties. Then cover each bundle with an oversize, extra-strength garbage bag, poking a hole in the bag for the hangers and knotting the bottom so the clothes don’t hang out.
Fill sturdy shopping bags with shoes, belts, pocketbooks, etc. and stash them in the bottom of the wardrobe.
Use this opportunity to donate to charity any clothes you haven’t worn in the past year.
Pack any clothes that are stored on shelves in your luggage.
Toss dryer sheets in with packed clothes to keep them smelling fresh.
Leave light clothing items like undergarments in their drawers. On moving day, remove drawers, carry the now-lightweight dresser into the moving van, and then replace the drawers. Secure the drawers with packing tape for the trip.
Stash inexpensive clothes like T-shirts in large garbage bags or cardboard boxes.
Be careful about using discarded boxes. If they stain your clothes or bring bugs into your new home, it’s going to cost you a lot more than if you’d just bought new ones.
Label all your clothing boxes with the room or place where they should go in your new home, like the master bedroom closet, and hope that everything makes it intact.

Assessed Value Coverage Assessed value coverage, which is also known as lump sum value coverage, refers to the price you pay to have your goods insured when using local, long distance, or international movers. Unlike valuation coverage, where the amount of coverage is determine by the weight of the shipment, assessed value coverage means that the items are covered based on their actual values. So when would you want to choose assessed value coverage over valuation coverage? Well, lets say you have a lot of small, but valuable items, like an expansive jewelry collection. Since valuation coverage pays by the pound and not the carat, your jewels will be better protected. The bottom line: should your shipment get lost or damaged during the move, youll get more money for your goods with assessed value coverage.

When you see professionals moving a piano, it can almost look easy. However, it’s not a simple task. If you want to ensure that your piano leaves and arrives in great condition you should take extra special care when moving it. It will always be best to hire a professional for any piano move but if you are forced to do so yourself, here are some tips:
All parts of the piano should be padded. This is to ensure that there are no parts of the piano (wood or metal) that will be hitting in the truck in case of movement.
Wrap the piano in shrink wrap. This is not necessary but it can help to ensure that the finish will not be damaged in any way. This is important with satin finish pianos because the finish is porous — meaning sweat from hands can actually damage the finish.
Use Leverage to Your Advantage. By placing pads beneath certain parts of the piano you can avoid having to constantly lift parts of the piano in order to remove the legs. The video provides a great example of this.
Use a Dolly and a Grand Board. Using a four wheel flat dolly can ensure that you won’t have to do any unnecessary lifting. Using a grand board — shown in the video — will help to cover the entire side of the piano and make sure it is securely resting on the dolly.
Remove the Legs and All Loose Parts. This will ensure that no parts of the piano are damaged by movement or other objects being transported in the truck.
Wrap the Piano in Blankets. Make sure that every part of the piano is wrapped and there are no parts that are exposed.
Secure the Piano to the Side of the Truck. Don’t let the piano slide around the truck. Secure it to the side of the truck using straps or another method that will ensure it doesn’t move.
If you want to undertake moving a piano it will definitely be a challenge. I would recommend having a good back, the proper equipment, a couple friends, and probably some pizza and beer. Better yet, hire professionals if you possibly can!
