Premire Baton Rouge Moving Company – 225-292-2424

Everyone has a different take on packing for a move. Some people love it, and some…not so much. However, it doesn’t matter if you love it or hate it, what really counts is the quality of the supplies you use. Anytime you use professional Baton Rouge movers for your packing needs, the movers will arrive at your home with high quality packing supplies, ready and anxious to get you settled into your new home.

For a DIY mover, the packing products used may vary. In fact, there are some movers who would prefer not to use single-use packing materials such as cardboard moving boxes and packing peanuts. Here are some examples of reusable packing supplies that can be used in any move.


Plastic Containers

As an alternative to cardboard boxes, plastic containers can be used in a move. These can be found in most homes and are often sturdier than cardboard boxes. These can be reused for storage upon arriving at the new home as well. Consider using these to pack appliances and other light/medium weight items.

 

Bungee Cords/Rope

These packing materials aren’t used in every move, but they are perfect for securing furniture in the moving truck. After the move, they are useful for several purposes.

 

Scissors

Rarely does a home not need a pair of scissors in it. Scissors are ideal to have when moving, because they allow the mover to cut tape off cardboard boxes among other things. Whenever you finish up a move, store the scissors somewhere safe and bring them whenever you feel the need to cut something else.

One of the most unique challenges of moving to Baton Rouge is figuring out how to move a fish tank to your new home. Some fish aquariums can be quite large and fragile, making it a tricky task to complete. Even figuring out what packing supplies in Baton Rouge to use to get it done can be tough. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve outlined steps to take and which packing products for moving fish you need to be aware of.

 

Preparing your fish and the tank for the move

 

You will want to change about 1/5 of the water every day for a week before the move-in day. Additionally, try not to feed them the day before moving. This will help to keep the fish happy, clean, and comfortable until you’re able to establish their home again.

Most of the packing products for moving fish are going to be in your home already. Plastic sandwich bags are perfect for this, depending on the size of your fish. You’ll want to fill the bags 2/3 of the way with some of the water from the fish tank and then transfer your fish individually to each bag. Make sure the bag has enough air for your fish as well.

If your fish tank or aquarium has plants, you’ll want to put them in large, water filled bags and put them in a safe place for transport. Once again, it’s best to use water from the tank so that the environment is consistent once the fish and the tank are established in the new home. Pack pumps, heaters, and other accessories like you would with any other fragile item into cardboard moving boxes, secured with bubble wrap and/or packing peanuts. The same process applies to your empty fish tank/aquarium. Make sure there are no unattached items inside that could cause damage during transport.

While different people have different reasons for hiring a moving company in Baton Rouge, there are several common themes and benefits of hiring local movers in Baton Rouge.

Movers in Baton Rouge offer better organization and packing

If you have any experience with moving, you are aware of how time consuming it can be to get things in order. It’s not that easy to do either. When you hire local movers in Baton Rouge, you do so because you know that they’re going to get the job done better than you could do yourself. The idea of hiring professional Baton Rouge movers is that they will work with a level of speed and accuracy that is hard to match.

All My Sons Baton Rouge movers are equipped to handle any job

Using the correct moving and packing supplies makes the entire moving process that much easier to complete. In fact, not having the proper packing products will slow things down tremendously. When you book moving and packing services, you can expect professionals to show up with every tool needed to get the job done. High quality cardboard boxes for packing, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap to secure the items inside those boxes, and moving dollies to quickly load those boxes for transport are some of the equipment at a professional mover’s disposal.

The moment you decide to move into a new home, you need to have a moving plan in place. Part of that is hiring a professional moving and packing service to make sure that you can get to where you need to go without worry. The experience and expertise they provide will ensure that relocating to a new home goes smoothly and leave you stress-free.

If you’re anything like most pet owners, you want to make sure that your pets are happy, safe, and comfortable always. After all, they are members of the family and you love them! Moving to a new home is just as much of an adjustment on them as it is for you. This is especially true for pets that have grown up in one home. As part of your moving checklist, you will be contacting professional packing services in Baton Rouge way ahead of your move in date to make sure that you’re as stress-free as possible. However, it’s also important to make sure the same goes for your pet. Here are some ideal packing products for pet care that you will need to include in your essentials moving box on moving day.

 

Pet’s Medicine
If you needed an inhaler to breathe, chances are you’re going to make sure to keep it nearby in case of an emergency. It’s important to take the same approach with your pet’s medicine. Before moving, be sure to refill any prescriptions your pet needs for the road, and keep it close by.

 

Pet Comfort Toys
Some dogs and cats tend to have anxiety when traveling in a vehicle. It’s a good idea to include one of their favorite toys in their traveling crate when moving. This will help to keep them calm by providing them with something to focus on besides the moving vehicle.

 

Food and Treats

 

Although it should be a given, don’t forget to pack some food and your pet’s favorite treats on moving day. It’s going to be difficult to unpack your boxes in your new home. Although All My Sons professional packing services in Baton Rouge will happily assist you with this, you want to be sure that you have access to your pet’s supplies as much as possible.

If you’re a new parent either for the first time or all over again, then congratulations from the All My Sons Baton Rouge movers! We know how challenging it can be to go through the process of raising a child. Additionally, we understand the obstacles that come with moving into a new home, let alone doing so with a baby to care for. From obtaining packing supplies, to getting utilities transferred, it’s tough! That’s why we’ve made it easier for you. Below, we’ve outlined the things that you need to know to pack for a move with a newborn child.

 Pack Your Newborn’s Non-Essential Items

Your child’s non-essential items include the toys and clothes that they can live without for a few days. You’ll want to take a small or medium sized cardboard box (obtained at roughly any location that sells packing supplies in Baton Rouge) and pack it up with anything that isn’t critical to your baby’s day to day. Don’t forget to label it. While these are the “non-essential” items, that doesn’t mean that you want to go hunting for them later.

Move on to the Essentials

With every move, you’re going to want to pack an overnight box composed of the most important items that you’ll be needing for the first day or two in your new home. When moving with a baby, you’ll want to pack a separate essentials box for them. As a parent, you know what this includes, but just in case, here are the things you need to pack:

Diapers, pacifier, pajamas, baby’s favorite toy (whatever makes them stop crying,) formula/food, breast feeding equipment, bottles, blanket, baby wipes, medical supplies.

Anytime you need to move with a child, especially a newborn, you need to call All My Sons Baton Rouge movers as soon as possible! Let us take care of the moving and packing, so that you can focus on the more important things.

In order to keep yourself from stressing over what to do with your belongings, the easiest solution is to get a storage unit in Baton Rouge until you are able to get settled in.

Additionally, if you’re a company in transition to a new location, obtaining a climate controlled storage unit is the perfect way to protect your inventory until you can move into your new location.

Planning a long-distance move? More than likely you’re stressed about the process and not looking forward to packing, let alone the long trip ahead.

However, if you’re keen on attempting to pack on your own, then the following tips should help you be prepared to pack your belongings for a long-distance move.

 

Get Organized

The most common mistake that people make when moving is not preparing ahead of time. When it comes to a long-distance move, it’s imperative that you get your agenda in order. This means downsizing your haul if possible, booking your long-distance movers ahead of time, researching Baton Rouge packing services if interested, making sure you have the necessary packing supplies and checking off every other item on the moving checklist.

 

How to Pack for a Long-Distance Move

Unless you’ve made other arrangements, you’ll typically be in a vehicle for hours at a time. In this case, you’ll want to have a cooler with sandwiches, snacks, and drinks. It’s also a good idea to have a couple of changes of clothing that you can quickly access in case anything comes up.

Medicine, toiletries, and other essential items need to be with you always. You always want to pack an overnight box to help you get through the first day or two in your new home until you can unpack, but in a long-distance move, keep an essentials box with you to help you get through the road trip.

When it comes to moving, the All My Sons Baton Rouge movers are the best source to trust with the safe transport of your belongings. Contact us today and learn how we can make your long-distance move easier on you.


Once you’re done moving into your new home, you’re probably asking yourself, “What do I do with these leftover packing supplies?” No need to fret. With over 20 years of moving experience, All My Sons Baton Rouge packers have all the answers. Here are several options to deal with packing supplies after a move:

Cardboard Boxes

Good quality packing supplies are always in demand. We recommend giving them to a friend or family member who is moving soon, or posting them on an ad site such as Craigslist. Not only will this free up your home from the clutter of cardboard boxes, but you’ll also be assisting someone in need and saving them some cash.

Bubble Wrap

If you live in an area that has a recycling service that picks up weekly, or if there’s a recycling center nearby, considering taking your bubble wrap there. Additionally, bubble wrap is one of those packing supplies that can be conveniently reused and repurposed. For drafty windows, bubble wrap can be a great way of covering it and keeping a room warm temporarily.

Styrofoam peanuts

Styrofoam packing peanuts can be used to fill beanbag chairs and similar items. Additionally, much like cardboard moving boxes, they are an invaluable packing supply and can be donated to someone else who may be moving soon. As with all packing supplies, passing it forward is always a better alternative than to throw them in the trash. It not only saves other people money on their Baton Rouge packing services, but it also helps to keep moving “green.”

Are you moving to or from Baton Rouge? The Baton Rouge movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage want you to know that you can save time and money by donating more and packing less.

Moving forces you to make a clean sweep of your house and get rid of items that you no longer use or need. It’s cheaper and easier if you have less to pack and less to load onto the back of the moving truck. Also, the less stuff you have, the less packing supplies you will need to purchase.

Before you even start the moving process, you should determine what to sell and what to give away. If you have the time, you can have a garage sale and make a few extra bucks, but let’s be real- you’re not going to want the added stress of having a garage sale while you are trying to pack. Consider foregoing selling your things in favor of donation. It’s a way to help your local community and let someone else benefit from your unwanted items.

For your clothing, furniture, bedding, kitchen supplies and toys, our Baton Rouge movers recommend consignment shops, thrift stores and shelters/support agencies. Consignment shops are great because they offer a discount or money in exchange for selling your items. Thrift stores include charities such as Salvation Army and Goodwill. You should check for local shelters and support agencies in your area, because these agencies work with individuals to help get them back on their feet.

By donating your unused items, you are saving yourself time and money, while also helping your community. There will be less time spent on packing everything up, and less money spent on packing supplies and packing services- it’s a win-win.


One of the biggest obstacles when preparing for a move is figuring out how to protect your furniture. It’s best to hire professional packing services with the Baton Rouge movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage. Our team knows exactly how to safely pack all your large furniture. With the proper precautions, a few tricks, and the right packing products for moving large furniture, you will be able to move your furniture without worrying about the potential damage.

Here are our tips for moving large furniture:

The first thing you need to do is gather the correct packing products for moving large furniture. You want to make sure that you are investing in supplies that will ensure your move is flawless. While cardboard boxes, packing tape and moving blankets will work, you should purchase additional items such as: bubble wrap, sofa and mattress covers, plastic wrap, and sheets of corrugated cardboard.

Bubble wrap and plastic wrap are going to two of the best tools when packing your large furniture. Bubble wrap is best used to protect delicate wood pieces, and plastic wrap and sofa covers are used to protect your upholstered items. The corrugated cardboard sheets are best used in between any wooden pieces. Our Baton Rouge movers suggest using cardboard because it adds extra protection and helps prevent any gouges or scratches while your furniture is on the moving truck. Bubble wrap is also ideal for protecting any glass pieces and mirrors. Wrap the glass or mirror completely in bubble wrap, and place the item in between two sheets of cardboard.
