The first step in any successful move is packing. Wrapping and loading up your belongings can be daunting, but don’t worry! The professional movers at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® of Madison share their tips to make this crucial first step efficient and easy.
It may sound simple, but a sturdy box is a vital start. Not only does it ensure the safety of its belongings, but it also makes transporting them much simpler. Don’t let your items go crashing through the bottom of a flimsy box, or have a stack of weak boxes collapse, and don’t let your boxes become sagging and unwieldy. Sturdy boxes also make the logistics of moving simpler. They tend to be more uniformed, so stacking and arranging them is simpler.
Organize during the pack
Packing like items together is a simple way to make your move easy. Filling a box with movies, books, kitchen supplies, etc. allows you to pack your house room-by-room. Make sure to label your boxes too, as this will help make the unpacking process simpler. We know how tough packing can be, but you can utilize the time to organize and set your new home off on the right foot.
Wrap your fragile items, but be careful
Newspapers are the classic go-to wrapping material when it comes to moving. What you may not have realized is that the pages of newspapers can stain glass with their ink. Using blank wrapping paper can help keep your items safe, while also keep them from getting stained. You wrap your items to keep them safe and clean, not to get them stained!
Unpacking after a move can be just as grueling as packing beforehand. Make sure you pack, and label, a box of essential items that you will need immediately after your move. This will help make sure you have what you need in one place right away, and will ease the transition into your new home.
Give yourself time
Packing takes time, make sure you account for it. Rushing at the end can lead to careless packing, damages, and even more stress on top of an already stressful moving experience. Starting early, taking your time, and having a plan can make the start to your move smooth.
