Smart Moving & Packing Tips to Make Moving Easy
Moving day will be here before you know it! The key to having a smooth and successful move is preparation. If you take the time to plan ahead and get organized in advance, you’ll have much less to worry about on the big day. Not sure where to begin? We’re here to help! We’ve put together a list of our top moving tips and tricks to help get you started. Get ready for the best moving day you’ve ever had! Moving prep doesn’t start with packing up your things; it starts way before! The first step is to make sure you have enough packing supplies to get you through. There’s nothing worse than having to scramble around on the day before or morning of your move, trying to find extra boxes. That brings us to our first set of tips:
1. Don’t be afraid to order a lot of boxes because you never know.
You know the old saying—it’s better to be safe than sorry! It’s much easier to deal with extra boxes than it is to find more at the last minute. Give us a call and order your boxes!
2. Pack in all sizes
When picking out boxes, be sure to get a variety of sizes. Think critically about what you need to pack up. While you might think you need just a bunch of large boxes, you’ll probably need more small and medium-sized boxes, since most things pack better in them. Get a few wardrobe boxes, many medium and definitely a lot of small boxes. Packing is a bit of an art form. It’s much more than just throwing your things in random boxes. If you want to make sure your stuff arrives at your new home safely (and is easy to find!), you want to make sure you pack smartly.
3. Dont forget the other moving supplies.
So you’ve ordered enough boxes, but you also don’t want to run out of tape! Make sure you have more than you think you’ll need, just in case. It’s also smart to purchase a tape gun to help make box assembly a little faster. Make sure you grab packing paper and everything else you’ll need too!
4. Keep your fragile item safe
Group delicate items together and make sure to label them as fragile. That way your movers will know which boxes need extra care, and can place them in the right spots in the moving van.
5. Paper packing.
When packing those delicate items, use proper packing paper instead of newspaper to avoid smears and stains on your valuables.That way, you won’t have to give everything a scrub down before you put it away at your new home.
