Packing Tips for a Successful Move
- Label Each Box With Detail- This seems easy, but with everything that goes on while moving it can
sometimes slip your mind, MAKE SURE boxes are labeled properly. This means
including what is in the box, what room it is going to, and if it is fragile.
- Box As Many Items As Possible- Almost everything that can be put into a box should be. This not only prevents
you from losing items, but it also saves your movers time.
- Avoid Packing Boxes Too Heavy- Keep in mind how heavy you are packing the boxes. If it feels super heavy it should likely be packed into two separate boxes. Not only is this for the sake of
our movers, but it also makes it much more difficult to stack boxes inside the
truck if they are this heavy.
- Pack An Overnight Bag- It is crucial to pack your necessities in a bag for the day of your move. Things like
hygiene products, phone chargers, and medicine can be difficult to find when
your items are all packed up.
Prep-Work Is Crucial for a Successful Move
- Make it clear where the items are going in the new home: this may mean labeling boxes with things like “pink room” “Dan’s room” or simply “master bedroom.”
- If the new home is big, it can be very beneficial to also tape the name of the room at each door.
- Make it clear of what items are not being moved: This can be done by simply putting them in the corner of a room or sticky notes.
- Make sure there are clear pathways with as much space as possible in each room: This helps speed the moving process along greatly.
- Make sure your movers will have a good parking spot: A close parking spot with lots of room can make your move a breeze. You may want to speak with your city, apartment complex, etc. about reserving a spot.
