Top 10 packing tips for moving
We know that when it comes to moving the key is the proper packaging for everything. But how, when and in what order should you start packing? When you think „ Now I’m ready to do a quick sale home and I will move within one day after the sales has been successful” then you don’t realize how much work moving really is. The longer you stay at a place, the higher the number of things you end up stashing no matter you want it or not. So here are some top packing tips for you before you start moving.
Start packing away things which take a notoriously long time to pack, which includes books, clothes, things you don’t use on a daily basis, which include bed cloth, blankets, kitchen and bathroom supplies.
You will need several things for moving which include tapes, strings, wraps, special packaging supplies, extra cords, lightbulbs and batteries and so on. Get these well on time, so when the time comes you are all prepared.
Empty and defrost your fridge a couple of days before moving. Get rid of all things you cannot eat right away. Drop all the groceries which you have already opened. Otherwise they will cause tons of problems for you while being transported. Empty your closet and be ruthless with all the things you don’t actually wear.
Supermarkets, newspaper stores, tobacco stores, computer stores are all full of hard paper boxes which they won’t ever use. Go and visit them to get boxes for your moving. You can save a good amount of money with this move. Get smaller boxes for heavier things.
Pack according to types of things and always put a note on each box on what’s exactly in them and for which room they are intended. This way things will stay way more organized.
To avoid for any box to get lost put a number on a visible place and keep the moving company there, until you verify that all boxes have promptly arrived to your new home.
These are great for smaller things and for things you want to keep separated from the others.
And carry them separately. This way you make sure that nothing gets lost or if they do, this way you can replace them faster.
So that all those things can be carried into that specific room right away. This saves you tons of time and energy.
Some companies have weird conditions, such as refusing to carrying anything which is not properly boxed or refusing to help with the moving in. Make sure you agree on everything before settling the date. And don’t pay in advance.
