Moving to a new place may sound good. But when it comes to transporting your belongings it can become most stressful part of the whole moving process. You can enjoy the experience and can also avoid the stress with a little preparation and careful planning.
Following are some tips helping you plan a peaceful and hassle-free move.
Make a List: First start with creating a list of all the movable items. When you know what you have to move, things simply themselves. Create a simple list and write down everything. When you are going to pack in boxes, place a number on every box and write the contents on your list. This will make unpacking much easier and reorganization easier.
Have Plenty of Supplies: You will need lots of boxes in a variety of sizes. Having enough boxes during move will only make your life easier. Make sure always use strong packing boxes, particularly for heavier items, otherwise your treasured belongings are far more likely to be damaged. Apart from the boxes, you also need a strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely.
Valuable and breakable items must be covered under unprinted newsprint because newspaper can stain your items. Packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap household good will ensure that there is no risk of the bottom falling out when you pick up a box full of crockery. You just need to arrange more supplies than you think for smooth packing.
Utilize Wardrobe Boxes: Large boxes are perfect for bulky and lightweight belongings such as clothes, blankets, comforters etc. Call your mover to ask the width of the wardrobe boxes they'll be bringing to see how many wardrobe boxes you'll need. You can also use shoe boxes, closet storage boxes, other items such as large baskets, fabric bolts, or gift wrap tubes. Most importantly - don't overfill the boxes because it will make them too heavy to lift and reduce the risk of injury or breakage.
Use Wardrobe Boxes: If you're doing the move yourself then start organizing your things as early as possible. Pack some bulky closet items in sturdy shopping bags a few days before your move. On the moving day, you can fill the bottom of the wardrobe boxes with some of your shopping bags and then add your hanging clothes later if you need to keep things together. Pack hanging items tightly so they won't move around and fall off of hangers. These bags will make it easier to retrieve your belongings from the bottom of a tall wardrobe box.
With these simple tips, you can relax and look forward to a smoother move without much stress.
