Packing Tips to Simplify Moving Day

Moving is more than just finding a new house to meet your requirements. In reality, the actual process of moving can be quite overwhelming and maybe even stressful. There are many things you can do to be certain that you’re on the right path to a successful move in the simplest way. Basically, stick with your strategy and keep in mind the following tips:

  • Use colour-coding or Post-it note descriptions

Colour coding boxes and using post-it notes can be a very useful tip when moving. You even use different coloured markers or even different coloured stickers to colour-code your the boxes by rooms and names of family members. For example, blue for anything in the kitchen and anything in the living room. Do not forget to make yourself a colour-coded sheet for the reference. It will make it much easier to pack and unpack.

  • Wrap parts together

You can probably imagine the confusion of getting to your house and realising that you may have lost a few things along the way. It’s possible to use small, sealed plastic bags to put screws and other parts from furniture away without the risk of losing them. Securely tape the bag and use smaller portions of the plastic wrap to cover the openings of shampoo and lotion bottles to avoid leakage. Simply set the cap back on once you seal the shirt.

  • Protect your breakables

You do not want anything to break during the moving process. You may try using extra clothing and linens to protect things like drinking glasses and mugs. Not only does this keep fragile items in one piece, but it also helps you move a number of your clothing items that are bulky without taking up space in other boxes. You may also use extra bedding or towels.

● Reinforce your moving boxes

Make sure that your moving boxes are sturdy. It is possible to use packing tape to reinforce the bottoms of each box. Use bubble wrap or perhaps scrunch newspaper to fill in spaces around breakables for extra protection against breakage.

  • Pack smartly

Do not forget to pack smart. It is possible to designate fragile things by padding the corners of things before you seal the boxes. Write “Fragile ” or “this way up” on the boxes containing breakable or delicate items.

  • Hire a removalist
