Helpful Packing Tips
No move ever goes 100% according to plan. And that’s ok! As long as you have the right supplies and attitude, you’re already on your way. While some treat packing and moving as an art form, there are always new tips and tricks to learn to make your life easier. Following these steps can make the difference between a painless move and an exhausting nightmare. Protect your possessions and ease the stress of moving.
Label Your Boxes
It’s a good practice to break up your packing by room. But sometimes, that’s not always enough. Your kitchen will have plenty of appliances, stemware, flatware, cutlery, and more. Instead of just labelling your kitchen boxes with the name of the room, label them with specific items. This will make your job easier to unpack and organize at your new place. Additionally, it’ll help you pack them in the moving truck as you’ll know how much each box weights and where you can stack it. Finally, nobody wants to search through 20 boxes to find one item they need after packing it prematurely. Labelling your boxes alleviates this frustration. You’ll be surprised at how many items you have; staying organized will immediately relieve some stress.
Keep Small Items in Bags
During transit, smaller items like screws, hardware, and other disassembled furniture become lost very quickly. When breaking down items with small hardware, place them in sandwich bags and tape them to the furniture or store them in a secure place where you’ll be sure to remember them. This makes setting up in your new location easier.
Use the Right Size Boxes
This is an important one. Making sure you use the right size box is imperative to stacking and the preservation of your items. Using one over-sized box sounds nice for all of your plates and bowls, but that quickly becomes too heavy to move safely. As always, our team is here to help you with any questions and can provide recommendations to help ease your move.
Don’t Leave Empty Space in Boxes
Along with the previous tip, leaving empty spaces in your boxes can result in items shifting and taking damage. It’s also wasted space. When you pack your boxes, try to organize them in a way that they do not become lopsided or shift around while the truck is in motion.
Never store food or edibles in your storage locker.
