• Evaluate things to be moved
Every household item that you own is not worthy to be moved into shipping containers. There are certain restrictions imposed on the nature of items owing to them being hazardous and perishable. Though moving containers or cubes are considered a safer option we would advise you to first assess what are the things that you want to move in these cubes. Goods that you will not need in the coming days and things that you can easily do without – the furniture, décor items, crockery, and other basic household items can be easily packed and moved first. If you are moving in too many high-value items, you should opt for insurance to compensate for the damage. In case of moving sensitive and precious plants and tubs, you should clarify everything with the experts beforehand as to how they would be transported, and if the units would be well ventilated and designed accordingly.
• Research the right company
When you are opting for a portable storage facility to transport your goods to your new home, you should be clear that not every moving company offers you this portable containerization facility and those that provide are hard to find. So, make sure you are clear in your mind as to what sort of move you wish to make, do you also need additional service of few days storage of goods in the cube you book for your move, is there any extra charge for the same, and also discuss about the insurance cover that you would want. Also clarify with the professionals of Agarwal Packers and Movers, the statistics of your consignment and how long will the shipment take, is there any facility to receive the priority packages before time, etc.

All you need to take care of is that all your valuables are rightly packed in quality packing materials and moved into heavy-duty cartons and sealed before they are being loaded.
• Follow a packing process
When you are packing a moving container, you should follow a process that keeps things in order and also makes the entire unloading task a hassle-free job. Ahead of placing the final moving cartons and cardboard boxes, you should see if the boxes are rightly sealed with packaging tape, and there are labels fixed with them. Ideally, it is advised to load the larger cartons, which are also the heavier ones first into the moving truck followed by the smaller packages, the lighter ones in a middle way, and towards the end of the container. You can even load the lightweight moving cartons and cardboard boxes atop the heavier cartons you just placed at the back. Make sure the weight is evenly distributed across the moving cube and no side is loaded with too much or too little of the stuff.
Not everyone knows the right technique and the ideal manner that should be taken care of when a moving truck is being loaded with stuff. There is a list of guidelines that one has to follow and ensure everything that has been moved is fit to be moved. There are restricted articles, perishable goods, and dangerous items that should never be moved in these closed containers. Also, these containers come at a price which might seem higher to some people, so one should discuss everything with the professionals and book the right size as per your moving requirement.
