Organization is the difference between constant headache and relief during a move. As professional movers who provide Jacksonville packing services, we know a thing or two about staying organized when it comes to packing. Here are some suggestions to help keep you organized throughout the packing process.

Pack Ahead of Time

Don’t wait to pack. Last minute packing goes in the complete opposite direction of organization. As you progress through the packing process, you can take your time, properly label boxes, and take a good inventory so you know exactly where everything is.

Donate

As you pack, you will notice belongings that you do not necessarily need or want anymore. If you have old shirts and jeans that are still in good condition, there is always someone who could use a shirt on their back.

The Convenience of Luggage

Yes, you will need boxes for packing, but your luggage can help you save some money. Not to mention, stay organized. Use your luggage to store away specific items or clothes so you know exactly where they are.

Professional Jacksonville Packing Services

When in doubt, call the professionals. We have the packing products and services to keep the most difficult of moves organized on a level that is unmatched. You will have peace of mind and a stock full of organized possessions at your disposal ready for moving day.

Your moving to Jacksonville, but you’re not sure what to do with those large appliances that you love so much. Do you bring them with you or leave them behind? With the help of our packing services, moving those large appliances can be a breeze. Although, if you’re thinking you want to leave them behind, here are some reason why we think you may not be making the wrong decision.

The larger the item the larger the care. It’s so easy to pick up your kitchen utensils and throw them in a box, but you’ll need more than a few fingers to get that refrigerator to budge. Additional care is necessary for those larger appliances and can save you from throwing out your back if you decide they don’t need to come along in the move.

On the fence about shipping them separately then everything else on moving day? Not your best idea. Large appliances like that can cost a fortune to ship and that’s not even including packing services for that washer and dryer.

Chances are if you are trying to decide whether to take those larger appliances, the move is because you are selling your house. Well if the sale hasn’t finalized on the old place yet, leaving those larger appliances behind can drive up the price of the house. So, why not cash in and buy some fresh appliances to top off a fresh start when you move in.

Aside from boxes, there are three important, yet highly overlooked packing products that are necessary for a move to Jacksonville. As professional Jacksonville movers, we would never be able to reach the outstanding customer satisfaction we achieve without these three necessary products for a successful move.

Packing Tape

Yes, tape. And it does matter that you buy actual packing tape. We know what you’re thinking, it’s just tape it can’t be that important. Think again. Packing tape is designed to be more sturdy, durable, and has more stick than traditional tape. It is your safety net for packing anything, don’t move without it.

Labels

It’s not enough to just write the contents of the box right on it. The extra cost of color labels will make your life so much easier. Don’t tread away from labels, they are your best friend when you realize you packed something that you didn’t predict needing so soon. Save time, avoid headaches, and buy some labels – you’ll be glad you did.

Notebook

This simplest of things. A notebook is the best way to keep an inventory of everything you packed. We challenge you to find Jacksonville movers that do not use one or a form of a notebook to keep track of progress during the move and most importantly, your inventory/everything you have packed during the moving process.

It’s no secret that moving is frustrating, time consuming, and simply annoying. Most people just want things to be over with as soon as possible, which is why they turn to the best movers in Jacksonville, All My Sons Moving & Storage. However, besides getting your possessions from point A to point B, there’s another aspect to moving that must be considered. What to do with all the leftover packing products?

In a perfect world, the moving boxes you purchased would magically disintegrate the day after you unpack and everything will be like new. That’s not how the real world works unfortunately. However, there are some other alternatives to take into consideration.

 

Donation

Just as you were looking for packing products for your move to Jacksonville, others are too. Consider donating them to a collection center or listing them online through Craigslist or a similar site. Sometimes, movers in Jacksonville will accept used packing supplies, so ask your movers if they will take them off your hands once you settle in.

Recycling

If your neighborhood has a recycling service that comes around weekly, then recycle your cardboard moving boxes. Alternatively, check to see if there’s a recycling center nearby that will allow you to drop of your recyclable materials. This could also be a great way to get rid of other packing products such as packing peanuts, bubble wrap, foam, etc.

Repurpose

You don’t necessarily have to get rid of your moving boxes after you’ve moved into your new home. Consider the different cardboard arts and crafts projects that you can create with them. This can be a great way to have some quality fun time with the kids.

 

 


Did you know that Jacksonville boasts a robust economy in a tax free-state, and has a projected job growth of nearly 40%? It’s no wonder why All My Sons Jacksonville Florida movers have seen such an increase in the moving population lately. If you’re one of the many business professionals who are intrigued by the opportunities that the city has to offer, then you may want to consider corporate packing services from our Jacksonville movers.

 

Why Use Professionals for Corporate Moves
Growth and expansion are important in the business world, which is why people turn to All My Sons Moving & Storage for corporate moves. We have been helping businesses and their employees relocate to Jacksonville for years. People rely on us to make sure that the transition to their new environment is as seamless as possible. Using professionals for moving and packing services reduces the stress and confusion that comes with a DIY move.

When businesses and their employees need to relocate to a new city or new part of the city, they are on tight schedules that typically involve a slight break in business operations. This means that anything that goes wrong with the move can cost them more than someone moving for residential reasons.

Employees that relocate to begin a new position, need things to go as smoothly as possible. For example, if they’re moving from Atlanta, Georgia on a Friday to start their new job on a Monday, then they have only but a short window to move, settle in and become familiar with their new environment.

Ultimately, it’s best to use professionals for a move, be it local, long-distance, or otherwise. To learn more about which services our Jacksonville movers can offer, contact us today at 904-757-4500!

 

 


There are some people who are under the impression that a local move is simple. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, local moves arguably present more challenges for inexperienced movers than a long-distance or commercial move. When it comes to a relocation, All My Sons Jacksonville local movers are the best resource to use for stress-free moving. With over 20 years in the business, we’ve seen it all. Here are some of the mistakes people make during local DIY moves:

 

Taking Things for Granted

 

For local moves, people always have the mindset that “they have time” and “they can get boxes later.” This is a huge mistake. Not purchasing packing products early and getting things organized immediately is how moving turns into a nightmare. Long-distance moves tend to invoke a stronger sense of urgency than local moves, because people feel that since they aren’t going far, they don’t need to think about it as much.

 

Attempting to Do Everything Themselves
Inexperienced movers naturally make plenty of mistakes in packing. They don’t bother to search for quality packing products and cost themselves more in the long run. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving a few blocks or a few miles, using All My Sons Jacksonville local movers saves you more time and money. People hire professionals when they want something done right. For instance, we all have a friend that knows something about fixing cars. They may perhaps be great at performing a tune-up and can install a new oil pump with ease. But when things really get bad, we turn to the professionals. Why? Because we want it done well, and we want it done right the first time around. Before attempting a local DIY move, see what your Jacksonville movers have to offer first.

 

 


The final moving box is unpacked, family photos are on the wall, and your children are bouncing around with off-the-charts levels of energy. Everything is back to normal and your new Jacksonville home is finally feels like home. You may feel as if you’ve finished moving in, but there are still things that need to be done. There are certain responsibilities that go beyond purchasing packing products and hiring moving services when moving to Jacksonville. There’s important paperwork to take care of now.

 

Medical Documents
Think about it, are you thinking about taking your children along the biking trails in Jacksonville? Then you’ll want to consider getting their medical records updated. Accidents happen and the last thing you want is to have to waste time at the hospital or doctor’s office filling the staff in on your child’s medical history. Nip the potential problem in the bud early and get your new doctor up to speed asap.

 

Identification

 

If you are an adult over the age of 18, then you’re very much aware of how important having up to date identification is. In fact, there are many things you won’t have access to without updating your driver’s license or state ID in Florida. For your security and to avoid future inconvenience with vendors or utility companies, obtain a new ID that reflects your new address.

 

Forward Your Mail

 

In addition to hiring All My Sons Jacksonville movers, you should have already had your mail forwarded to your new address. If not, then now is the time to do so. It can take some time for the information to reflect in USPS systems so the sooner you get this done, the sooner you can stop worrying about missing love letters from your secret admirers.

Packing up your home can become a mindless activity- it shouldn’t, but it happens. However, you need to make sure that you’re paying extra attention to your electronics when you are packing. If you aren’t careful, you could cause some serious damage to your most expensive and valuable belongings. Follow these dos and don’ts of packing electronics that our movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage use as part of our Jacksonville moving services.

Do make sure you are protecting and stabilizing your fragile equipment. For example, when you are packing your flat screen TV, you don’t want to place it directly in a cardboard box. You need to have something in between the TV and its case to provide some sort of protection to the screen. One of the best packing products is a soft moving blanket. You do want to make sure that you’re keeping your TV upright, so that it doesn’t get damaged by any other items when you are moving.

You do need to make sure you’re labeling your electronics appropriately. When it comes time to unpack and reconnect everything in your new home, your labels will save you time and headaches from doing everything incorrectly.

Don’t separate cables and remotes from your electronics. You want to make sure that everything is packed together, so you can easily find everything when you’re unpacking.

Lastly, don’t forget to label your boxes carefully. It would be unfortunate if you weren’t careful with your belongings, and your electronics were damaged because you forgot to label the boxes. When you hire our Jacksonville moving services, our professional movers make sure to label your boxes on each side, to ensure proper handling.
