Moving season is on the horizon, and if you’re someone who is thinking about a move in 2021, now is the time to start thinking ahead and planning for it.
Two crucial things we tell our customers they should focus on as a move approaches is packing and organization. If you have a good grasp and plan on your packing process, chances are you’re going to have a positive moving experience. However, the idea of packing can seem like a daunting task – and deservedly so. It requires good planning, proper packing supplies, organization like we mentioned above, and time to roll up your sleeves and get it done.
We’re here to help! We offer a full-line of packing supplies that are guaranteed to cover all of your packing needs, and we can even pack for you! Our moving teams are also trained to pack an entire home or just a few rooms.
In the meantime, here are some of our best packing tips to help you get a jump on the process.
We’ll keep repeating this for the rest of time – planning ahead will make your move easier. Tackle the packing that needs to be done little by little, day by day, so you don’t have to do it all at once.
Pack things room by room
This builds off the point above, but going room by room is a solid way to take things in stride and chip away at the packing process. It will also help you keep your belongings more organized and give you some room for error should you need to re-pack something.
The last thing you want is to arrive at your new home and not know where something is because you forgot to label the box. Be sure to accurately label each box you are packing up with what’s inside and where it needs to go. This will help both you and the moving teams transporting the boxes.
Keep items protected
Proper packing supplies can play a huge role in the safety of your belongings during transport. Using quality moving boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper will prevent damages as they’re loaded and unloaded from one house to the next.
Here’s a good packing reminder to keep items safe: the heavier the item, the smaller the box. This prevents items from falling out of the bottom.
For even more expert packing tips, here are a few of the best ones we’ve heard from our frontline moving experts – the ones who do the moving and packing each and every day!
“Have all of your loose items boxed up and packed away, and also make sure to label the boxes. Make sure to have a game plan for unpacking the boxes, too.” – Shawn – Operations Manager – Lorain-Medina, Ohio
“With your packed boxes, take them all into the garage. It’s going to save a lot of time for us with the move and will also save you some money on your bill at the end of the move.” – Anthony – Team Lead – Lincoln, Nebraska
