Moving to a new place can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. In addition, packing up your belongings can get overwhelming, especially when there’s no prior experience to base things on. So, in this article, we’ll be going over all the packing tips we could think of to make it as easy as possible for you.
1. Start Early
Most people do their packing for a move at the very last moment. And that’s a big no-no. The longer you wait, the more pressure you put on yourself and, therefore, the less likely it is for you to complete everything before moving. So start as soon as you know where and when your move will happen. However tempting it may be, don’t wait until everything else is perfect before you start packing — take things one at a time and do them as they need to be done.
Once you have decided on your move date, it’s time to start thinking about the things you don’t need anymore. Donating old stuff is one of the best ways to make room for new items, quickly saving you a lot of time and energy. There are endless ways of donating your possessions without feeling guilty, whether you sell or give away out-of-season items.
3. Use Proper Packing Supplies
The proper packing supplies can make the difference between a quick and damage-free move. Make sure to buy padded blankets, packing paper, markers, plastic wrap, stretch wrap, tape, and whatever else you need. With the right supplies, you’ll be able to pack up everything quickly.
4. Label Your Boxes
Labeling your belongings is a must in case something gets lost. It will save you loads of time and money by working with movers that know what they’re picking up and where it should be delivered. People who don’t label everything end up paying for movers to do it for them, but even then, there are no guarantees that everything will make it where it needs to go.
5. Be Careful With Electronics
Electronics are the most challenging things to pack up. Sturdy boxes are necessary to move your computers, stereos, and other sensitive devices. You don’t want a broken computer or music player to be the first thing you see when you arrive at your new place. And that’s just one of the scenarios when having the right supplies with you can save you a lot of unneeded stress. Most movers have experience in dealing with electronics.
