Tips To Make Packing Easier
You’re ready to make a move and you’re excited. But then you look around and don’t know where to start with packing for your move. Below are a few tips that could help. Remember to prepare ahead and keep yourself organized.
Don’t procrastinate. We all know that getting started can be difficult. A few weeks prior to your move, start packing several boxes a day. Begin with items that are least essential to your daily life. If you pace yourself, you will be more organized and the job won’t be so overwhelming.
Focus on one area of a room at a time and don’t mix items from different rooms in one box.
Label clearly. On the top and side of each box, write a general description of the contents and the room name. Use different colored markers for each room, which will make it easier for you and for your movers.
Use Packing Paper.
Stay clean. Regular newspaper may bleed ink onto your possessions. Use white packing paper to wrap all items.
Stick with Moving Boxes.
Use boxes designed for moving. Boxes obtained from grocery or liquor stores are not always clean and might not hold the weight of the items that you will be putting in them. Varying box sizes can make loading more difficult.
You should personally transport heirlooms, important papers, legal documents, and valuables.
We hope you found these tips valuable. Good luck with your move!
