 Pack All Belongings In A Way That The Movers

How to Pack Room By Room?

Most of us have a sentimental attachment to our homes. Depending on the experience you have had, the thought of moving to a new house can either make you feel upset or relieved. Your home’s accommodative aspect is not on its walls but the warmth, joy, comfort, and love that abounds. So, as you move to a new area, you can rest assured that all these aspects follow. Moving should be easy; you only take your belongings, rearrange them, and the new place begins to look homely.

However, getting into a new house is not always easy. You must first pack all belongings in a way that the movers you will hire can transport them without a hitch. Going by the intensive labor involved, an efficient transition only comes if you opt to pack your household items on a room-by-room basis. Here’s how to go about it:

Living room

The challenge with this space is that you still need to use the furniture and electronic devices. Nevertheless, the sacrifice of doing away with a few days of comfort has its reward once you settle down in the new home. Therefore, be systematic by packing wall hangings, family photos, lamps, and vases. Also, get the furniture ready.

Bedroom might seem like the most comfortable place


By looking at the room, your bedroom might seem like the most comfortable place to pack your stuff. You only must remove clothes from their hangers or wrap them intact. You can clear the dressing table in an instant by putting bottles of perfume, cologne, lotion and makeup kits in the appropriate container. Avoid tagging excess baggage along by removing shoes and clothes you no longer wear. Put them in a carton and label it with the mark to suggest you intend to donate.


Despite its size, your bathroom will leave you amazed at the number of items it contains. Packing the things in this place calls for tolerance. There are bottles containing medicines, tubes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, shower gel and soap and shaving razors. Sort them out keenly and dispose of any expired pills plus old shaving kits. Here too, you need a box bearing the name “bathroom.”


There is no way you can prepare to move without sorting and packing items in your kitchen. Knives and forks, dishes, drying racks, blenders and coffee makers are just but a few examples of stuff that needs packing. You must be extra careful with the kitchen as there are sharp and fragile objects. Be also prepared to spend a good amount of time in this room as you pack all the fragile dishes.

Stick to the plan and pack one room at a time putting the contents of each into a separate box. Stick a label on each container with details of what is inside. Packing in such a format makes the work of moving company staff easy. They know how to stack these boxes in their truck in a manner that ensures their safe delivery. With well packed and labelled boxes, unpacking becomes that much easier.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
