Smart Moving: How to Pack your House Strategically
Generally moving a house takes a lot of time and effort. If you’re planning to do it on your own, which most of us do, you need to carefully plan and pack. Doing it right will save you time and money!
Smart moving, a few things to keep in mind:
- Decide what will go and what will stay behind. This is the perfect time to clear out all your old clothes and junk. Everyone has these items in which we don’t use or don’t even work anymore and it is not worth moving or packing these items. No matter whatever it is, decide in advance what goes and what stays.
- Prepare a list of what all packing supplies you need and ensure to have enough on hand. You can buy moving boxes online directly from My Moovers. They have a wide range of moving boxes and packing supplies online at affordable rates.
- Pack non-required items first. If you’re moving in winter, pack summer clothes first and so on.
- Label and number all boxes. While packing boxes, ensure to label the top and sides of all the boxes with contents, location in the house and if there are any special instructions like ‘fragile’ or ‘open first’. This will also help the movers to effectively pack the moving truck and unpack and place your items in the necessary rooms in your new house. It is also a great idea to add a complete list of contents on the outside of the box. This will eventually save a lot of time when unpacking.
- Bubble wrap the expensive or fragile item like mirrors, picture frames, etc. ensures smart moving as they will not bump against one another. Ultimately, they can be stored and carried out easily & efficiently.
- Ensure to keep all parts together with the item itself while moving furniture. Put screws, bolts and small pieces into a self-locking plastic bag and tape to the furniture. Wrap up all furniture in protective padding. This will protect them from getting stained or dented during the move.
