When you are getting ready to move, the task at hand is overbearing. The thought of packing up everything you own in preparation for a big move is overwhelming to say the least. As you get ready to start the packing process, there are several things that can make the load a little lighter. Prodigy Moving & Storage is here to share some packing tips that can hopefully make the task seem a little less daunting. It is our goal to make your packing process a breeze.
Procrastinating Packing to Move Should Be Avoided
Saving all your packing until the very last minute will make the process that much more stressful. Don’t wait, as soon as you find out you have a pending move on your hands, you can do small things to get the ball rolling. Start to sort through closets and purge the items that you no longer need. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used the item in the last five years, you probably don’t need it anymore. By pacing yourself in the packing process, you will find that you are more organized and packing will go much smoother.
Pack One Room in a House at a Time
One way to keep things simple is to pack one room at a time. Don’t try to do a little here and a little there. Be methodical in the way that you are packing and it will keep things organized without putting much effort into it. This will also help to keep things in the same box as other items in that room rather than mixing it all together. It will help in the unpacking process as well.
Label Boxes for Moving
You can never label too much when you are moving. You may think that you will remember what you have packed where, but when you are surrounded by cardboard, the boxes will all start to blend together. Be very specific when you are labeling each box so that you know what the contents are as you go to unpack.
Use Packing Paper
Packing paper should be your best friend when you are moving. This one item will help you keep your belongings safe as they are jostled about in the moving truck. While some people use old newspaper to pack their belongings, this may not be the best idea since it can bleed onto your items and ruin them.
Use Standard Sizes of Moving Boxes
You may want to stick to moving boxes as well rather than refurbishing older boxes you have gotten from different places. These boxes aren’t worn and have a smaller chance of breaking apart as your belongings are packed on and off the moving truck.
