#1: Pack Items by Room and Type
Pack items by room and type to begin with if you want to save yourself a whole lot of time when it’s time to unpack. You can save most of the time when it comes to unpacking just with this simple step – and this also ensures that you can pack fragile things with other fragile items to ensure safe transit, and careful packing.
#2: Enough Packing Materials?
Do you have enough packing materials to pull off your move? This can be one of the most stressful parts of packing, and it only kicks in when you realize that you might be a few boxes short. When you hire a professional moving company like We Are the Movers, we can help to supply all the packing materials that you could ever need – and we always bring along extra to make sure you don’t fall short.
#3: Packing Tightly
Everything that gets packed into a box should always be packed as tightly as possible: Newspaper and bubble wrap can help to pack fragile items tighter. This is done to ensure that it doesn’t move around, scratch or break during transit. When hiring a professional moving company, hire We Are the Movers – we care about your stuff just as much as you do, and we can hep you get your stuff safely from one point to another.
#4: Tape it Shut
Make sure that you use high quality packing materials and tape for closing up boxes. If you don’t tape boxes shut properly at both ends, you risk the contents falling out the bottom when the box is picked up – and what would you rather prefer between just using stronger tape and a few hundred or thousand dollars worth of damage?
#5: Plan Your Move Properly
Make sure that you have everything arranged at your end destination before you actually get there, including things like the keys to your new place, and where things have to be off-loaded. Make sure that you also arrange a time, and have your contracts in order where this applies. Most moves that go wrong happen because of improper planning – and just the use of a simple to-do list can help you avoid most of the common moving issues right there.
