Tips On How To Pack Fast

What are the Tips On How To Pack Fast?

Truth be told, people are incredibly busy these days. Between taking care of the household, shopping, kids, main job, side business and social life, people are left with very few hours to sleep. It is no wonder that most people find themselves with only one or two days to pack before a move while experts recommend 6 to 8 weeks at least. Not to despair though, packing fast within a short period is still very possible.

Here are some tips;

Get all your packing supplies

Whether you will buy, borrow or gather them from your basement, make sure you have everything you need to pack so you don’t keep rushing to the store to get supplies. These include enough boxes, tape, wrapping paper, bubble wrap, scissors, marker and packing paper. Gather all the blankets you need to wrap delicate items with and put them on standby.

Assign a packing zone

Instead of filling every room with boxes, pick one room or station where you will do all the packing. This will not only make things less messy but you will also be able to see your progress as that room becomes full. Assemble boxes in that room before you start packing and line them up with all the protective supplies as required.

Separate essentials first

One of the things that really makes people spend a lot of time packing is going back into the boxes to get something they need. Before you begin packing, get everything you will need for at least two days; place these items in an overnight bag and set them aside so you don’t pack them in boxes.

Get help

You will need all the help you can get to get your packing done within the set timelines. It’s time to rally up the troops from neighbors, relatives, friends and even colleagues. Alternatively, if you have the budget for it, you can hire professional movers to pack for you and it will be done in a matter of hours.

Pack room by room

Trying to pack up the entire house at a go will not only create a real mess but also make you very confused. You will spend a lot of time moving from room-to-room in search of stuff. Instead, start with one room, label the boxes according to the owner of that room and start packing there until you are done before moving to the next.

Dispose as you go

The more things you have to pack, the more time it will take and also it will be more costly. Though you may not have enough time to first separate items for disposal, make sure that you dispose the ones that you don’t need as you go. You can assign one box for that purpose so every time you see something; you just throw it in there.

Packing fast requires tactic and a plan so you won’t just be going around the house doing nothing. Consider hiring the best moving company to help with the packing.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
