Full CircleMoving Tips, Packing

When getting ready for a move, it is important to be prepared and organized. Most people have a lot of stuff to take into their new home, and packing all of your essential items can prove to be stressful. If you need advice for your next move, check out these helpful packing tips.

Organize: Put similar items in the same container to keep your possessions organized. Label your boxes so you can find specific items easier when you begin unpacking.

Consolidate: Maximize your space by consolidating multiple items into one box instead of individually packing everything. Pack boxes as full as you can get them (without causing the box to collapse under the weight).

Quality Packing Materials: Use sturdy boxes, resilient straps, sufficient padding, dollies for heavy objects, etc. It’s important to use equipment that will make your job easier and keep your possessions safe.

Break Down Large Items: A smooth move is all about maximizing the space you have. Disassemble large items like furniture if possible. This will allow easier storage of bulky items and more leeway to move things around. Protect protruding pieces and sharp corners with bubble wrap or blankets.

Clean!: One thing that often gets overlooked is ensuring your valuables are clean and dry before you load them up. Wash any clothes and blankets and make sure any furniture is properly dusted. Also, check that every item is completely drained of water, as any moisture buildup can cause items to mold or warp.

Above all, don’t stress! Moving is part of life and staying positive through it all is important. One way to reduce stress during a move is hiring a moving company.
