6 Great Packing Tips
Just like any other project that you have in your home, it is good to know how to pack your items so that you can have an efficient and smooth moving process.
To ensure you get the best results, here are a few packing tips…
START PLANNING EARLY
One of the most effective tips when moving is to ensure that you begin the process early. Begin by packing the less important items, and work towards packing your daily household items last. This will help you to avoid searching through boxes that you have already packed to find essential items that you need.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
Be sure to listen to professional advice and you pack your items in high quality materials such as wrapping paper and bubble wrap. These materials will prevent any damages to fragile items during your move.
KEEP AN INVENTORY
It is important that you keep an inventory list of the items you have packed and haven’t packed yet. This will keep you organized and on top of which items you have put away. It is also advisable that you have a list of anything that is precious or of great value – this will make sure that nothing is forgotten or lost.
DE-CLUTTER YOUR HOME
It is good idea to use the packing process as an opportunity to throw out items that you might not need. This will reduce the amount of contents you have to pack and unpack, and will ultimately make your move easier.
LIMIT THE WEIGHT
It is good to spread your items evenly throughout the boxes that you pack. Over-packing boxes could result in damages and injury during transit. Be sure to pack fragile items tightly, any loose items could move around during transit, causing cracks or scratches to occur.
PACK YOUR ESSENTIALS TOGETHER
Create an ‘essentials’ box that you can keep close to hand until the day before your move. This means that you will have access to daily household items at all times, making the last few nights in your old property easy, simple and comfortable.
