The best packing tips for moving
Estimate the number of boxes you will need
Averagely, home studies advise allocating about 10 storage boxes to pack up items in each room respectively. You do not have to spend a fortune or even a few extra bucks purchasing moving boxes, you can ask friends for their old boxes or take a trip to your local supermarket to get some for free.
Get extra boxes
Stock up on extra boxes just in case your estimates aren’t correct and you find yourself needing some extra storage space. You can, after all, never err on the side of caution.
Start decluttering early
You will be amazed at how much stuff gets accumulated over the years. If you plan on moving anytime soon, then we advise that you begin to declutter today. This saves you time and much-needed energy.
Pack your essentials
Moving so much stuff at a time can leave you searching for the most basic items like your toothbrush and pajamas. To avoid this, make sure you pack a small bag of essentials to use before the dismantling begins.
Book professionals early
If you plan to utilize professionals during your move, then it is imperative that you book their services on time to avoid last-minute disappointments, inconveniences, and hurried changes of plans.
Label your boxes and fragile items
Label which box has which item and is supposed to go into which room. We cannot stress how much easier this simple trick makes the entire moving process.
If they can’t move, they won’t break
Here’s a packing tip for moving your fragile items: if they can’t move, they won’t break. This goes for your china, figurines, and picture frames, as well as other breakable items. Place them in a box with a large towel or an old cardigan to serve as a buffer.
