There are some simple things one need to do to make sure nothing goes "sour" during their move

Many of Glendale's residents are familiar with "Meatball", the bear who has become part of the community after being captured twice in Montrose and La Crescenta. Meatball keeps coming back for more interaction with the residents and now has his own Twitter handle @TheGlendaleBear that is maintained by a local Glendale resident. The lovable bear likely scours the city for food so it is important to make sure to keep food items out of reach to avoid surprise encounters.

On the topic of food, people moving in and around the city of Glendale may wonder how to properly transport their food items and perishables to keep them safe from the elements or neighborhood bears. Our Acclaimed Glendale Movers bring over 200 years of combined moving experience to the table and would like to help make sure that all belongings are safe and sound. There are some simple things one need to do to make sure nothing goes "sour" during their move:

1. One of the first things to consider is to eat the food people have stashed away in their refrigerator and pantry. Eating through the reserves of food will mean having less to deal with on the day of the move. Starting about a month in advance, most perishable food can be eaten with ease. On the last few days before the move, take out or buying only what will be eaten is a sure-fire way to avoid having to lug fresh groceries to a new home.

2. Another thing that can help on the day of the move is to simply to throw away things that are not needed. If there is a package of frozen vegetables that has been in the freezer for 5 years, chances are that it is not going to be eaten so it might be best to throw it out. Toss out things like the crumbs at the bottom of a cereal box instead of transporting them to your new home.

3. If there are some things like meats to ship to a long distance location, making use of ice and frozen gel packs to ship the goods is recommended. These perishable items can be shipped through standard shipping services like FedEx or UPS, but make sure to use the most expedited shipping method otherwise the goods may get spoiled.

4. For local moves, a small cooler with dry ice should be enough to keep items from spoiling for about a day. After arrival at the destination, it is best to unpack the items quickly and get them refrigerated.

5. As a last reminder, make sure to defrost your refrigerator about 24 hours before the move to avoid a big mess as the ice in the freezer will melt and leak all over furniture and floors.
