Packing Tips from MovingServicesNearMe.com
Now that you know you are moving the task of packing is awaiting you. At this time its always useful to assess your belongings and really ask yourself what needs to come with me and what can stay? Whatever you feel is no longer useful to you ask yourself these two questions.
1.) Can it be donated?
2.) Should it go to the garbage instead?
As you pack your belongings stack them in separate stacks; start with a stack to keep, a stack for donations, stack for garbage. You may also consider having a garage sale or checking with local homeless shelters for those you can donate to directly. If you have enough notice then it can be helpful to rent a local storage unit to keep the packed items to make more room to work.
Here are more useful tips to keep in mind while packing!
Time Is of The Essence
If you have decided to do the majority of your packing on your own than please be advise to give yourself plenty of time to pack. Packing is very time consuming and requires a lot of patience. You may even need to have friends help or consider hiring professionals.
Depending on the size of your home you will want to give yourself at least a week or more to pack all of your essentials. Don’t wait until the last minute to pack because under that type of pressure you can and will forget a lot of things.
Remember your belongings are important and have a lot of fond memories. Take your time and pack with no stress. A good rule of thumb is 1 week per room, be sure to include attics, basements, outdoor sheds, etc. In some cases those can take longer to clean out so plan accordingly.
Getting the right size boxes is very important part in packing. You want to try to avoid getting small boxes which will be troublesome to your move. Small boxes should only be used for specific items (See Packing Materials) and perhaps last minute items you overlooked. Otherwise, proper size boxes are essential to get everything packaged correctly.
The recommend box sizes are as follow:
- 1.5 cubic feet these boxes are great for books, knick knacks, and medium size items.
- 3.0 cubic feet these boxes are great for dishes, kitchen items, and even living room items.
- 4.5 cubic feet these boxes are great for clothes, linens, bathroom essentials, etc.
- 5.02 cubic feet these boxes are great for your fragile items for example your china ware and lamps.
When sealing your boxes always make sure you tape the bottom of each box before placing your items inside the box. Close the box and tape it up. Don’t be shy with your tape; you want to make sure its sealed and nothing will get out. Buying moving tape and a good amount of rolls will be very important when packing. Again, you are trying to make your move stress free and want to make sure you have everything you need when packing.
Labeling your boxes is very important and it will save so much time come unpacking day. Having your boxes labeled will help with your move greatly because it will be organized the day of the move. Labeling the boxes with what the box consist of and what room they will go in will be time saving, stress free, and will allow the move to flow effortlessly. By also indicating whether the box has fragile items will save you the stress of items being broken or misplaced. So, do yourself a favor and buy yourself a permanent marker in black or red to label your boxes with big letters.
