Moving Mistakes to Avoid in Los Angeles, CA; When to Start Packing, Labeling Boxes & More

When you set out to do any type of project you never hope that you do the worst job possible. It is simply human nature to want things that you do to turn out well. As we embark on a project that we are comfortable or familiar with it is much easier to have a favorable outcome. We know how the project should go and we just need to make it happen. When we do not have much background knowledge about the project it becomes harder to have it turn out well. If you are getting ready to move you may have done it before. But if this is the first time that you have moved as an adult you do not have any previous knowledge about how to plan and execute a successful move. There are some common mistakes that people make when they are moving. Prodigy Moving & Storage has put together a list of mistakes that you want to avoid so that your move can be successful.

Knowing When to Start Packing

The number one mistake that people make when moving is that they do not start packing at the right time. This mistake actually has two ends of the spectrum. Some people pack so early that they have to go back through their boxes to get things out that they actually still need to be using. The more common mistake here though is that you do not start packing soon enough. If you do not leave yourself enough time to pack you are bound to lose or break possessions during your move. Take time to plan out your packing process so that you can track your progress and make sure that you are ready for moving day.

Pack & Label Items Carefully when Moving

Another common mistake is that people do not pack their items carefully. As you pack your boxes you will want to take the extra time to wrap up your fragile items so that they do not get broken during your move. You will also want to pay attention to how heavy you are making your boxes. It really stinks when you did carefully pack a box but the weight of its contents causes the bottom of the box to fall out when it is being moved out.
As you pack you will also want to label your boxes. Many homeowners do not take the time to label their boxes. This makes unpacking a complete nightmare! You have boxes in all sorts of different rooms where they do not belong.
