Tips to make your move easier
Have a first to open box: Ensure that all the essential items you will require on your first day in your new home are easily accessible. These include snacks, paper plates, wipes, toiletries, pajamas and linens. Keep them in a clearly labeled box or a clear plastic bin. This will make it easy to spot the items.
Protective padding: The best way to protect your delicate items from breakage is by stuffing the boxes with sufficient cushioning. You can use thick winter clothes, dish towels, t-shirts or even newspapers to pad the boxes. If your budget allows, purchase bubble wrap and Styrofoam; they offer the best protection. Ensure your glasses and plates are individually wrapped for maximum effect.
Clearly label every single box: Labeling your boxes will save you a lot of headache. A good labeling system should be able to tell you the contents of the box and the room it belongs in. For instance you can assign a color to each room and place colored stickers on every box. This way, whoever unpacks the boxes will know all blue boxes should go to the bathroom and all brown ones to the bedroom. Numbered labels also do the trick. Also remember to place special labels like ‘FRAGILE’ and ‘First to open box.’
Preventing spillage: You are bound to experience a lot of spillage if you fail to properly seal certain items. You ought to give extra attention to containers filled with liquids like perfume bottles. Cover such with saran wrap before placing the caps on. Do the same for your shampoos and liquid soaps. Make-up products are another group of items notorious for spilling while in transit. You can prevent this by placing cotton balls or pads directly on the product. This will cushion their falls when dropped ultimately preventing them from spilling and breaking.
