Packing Well Will Help Your Move

If you have ever gone through relocation, you know how much of a drag it can be. Weeks of preparation lead to a big moving day, but then after you get everything to your new place, you still have to unpack it all. If you didn’t pack well to begin with, this part of the move can be just as stressful as the packing itself. Thus maintaining a proper packing method throughout your move will vastly impact your experience along the way. Here are some tips to consider while you pack.

One of the first things you can do to help your packing and moving go smoothly is plan out your new place. You need to have in mind where everything will go in your new home so you can group items accordingly. You may just be moving the same rooms from one place to the next, but you need to think about that ahead of time. While you are planning out your home, consider if there is anything that you can get rid of in your home. You can use this time to de-clutter your house and prepare a fresh start for when you get to the new place.

If you can get the same size boxes for the majority of your packing, you can stack them a lot easier. A lot of times you can get used boxes from department stores that are all the same size because of the merchandise that is in them. Usually you can get these late at night or in the morning after a shipment. Some places have recycling bins right in the back of their stores that you can pull the boxes from. Call around a week or so before the move so you can figure out where to get your storage containers from.

Make sure that you use labels on all of your boxes. This will help you determine what room to put the boxes in, what to unpack first, which boxes have delicate items, etc. Packing is a lot easier when you know where everything you own is. If the packing goes well, the relocation will too. Proper labeling will also help your movers take good care of your fragile items and potentially distribute them more easily on the big day. Make sure to wrap your glassware well when you pack that up and label that box as fragile. You’ll be moved into a new house before you know it.
