Time to Get Packing
Here are some quick tips to help with your move!
1) Start early: Begin packing well in advance to avoid last minute stress. Start with items you don’t use daily like seasonal items or décor.
2) Gather Supplies: Collect plenty of sturdy boxes in various sizes, packing tape, markers and labels. Try looking for boxes at local stores and on-line marketplace.
3) Label Boxes Clearly: Label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make unpacking much easier and helps movers know where to place boxes in your new home.
4) Pack Room by Room: Focus on one room at a time. This approach keeps things organized and makes unpacking less overwhelming.
5) Pack essentials Separately: Pack a separate box or bag with essentials you’ll need right a way in your new home, such as toiletries, a change of clothes, chargers and important documents.
6) Color coding: Assign a color to each room and label boxes with matching colored markers. This provides a quick visual reference when unloading.
7) Don’t over pack boxes: Avoid making boxes to heavy to lift comfortable. Aim for manageable weight and use larger boxes for lightweight bulky items.
8) Take Photos: Before disconnecting any electronics, take photos to remember how things are connect for easier reassembly.
9) Keep hardware together: After taking apart furniture place screws and bolts and all small pieces in a Ziploc bag, label and tape to a piece of the furniture.
