Place Where To Start Your Packing Process On Moving Day

Packing for a move is a tiresome process. It however does not have to be so with adequate planning and engaging the services of a reputable moving company. However, before you even decide which mover is best for your needs, it is important to have a plan of how you intend to handle the packing process.

Below are some ideas:

Prepare first

Packing is not something that you can wake up now and do efficiently. You need to come up with a packing plan that you will follow to ensure that the packing process is easy and successful. Among other things, your preparation should include transferring your information especially on utilities, finding a new home and getting the floor plan, and hiring a mover. Be sure to do this before starting the actual packing process.

Get the appropriate packing supplies

You will need packing supplies for your packing process and the actual move to be easy. Some of the important packing supplies include boxes, securing materials, labeling materials, etc. While you can buy packing supplies, getting free packing materials from friends, family members, or colleagues can go a long way to reducing your costs. Alternatively, hiring a moving company can save you such costs since they come with enough packing supplies.

Correct Measurement Of Floor

Take measurements

You will find that your old home may differ, in terms of size and floor area, from your new home. Such difference might force you to leave some of your items, or even dispose of them. You therefore need to have a clear picture of your new home’s size since this will help you determine what you can and cannot move with.

Sort your items first

You have a variety of items in your house, which must be packed differently. Then there are those items you do not use anymore and want to dispose or sell. Sorting through your items gives you a clear picture of what needs packing and what should be disposed.  

Label your items

Ensure that all your packing boxes and containers are labeled well during the packing process. You need to be sure what items are contained in each of the different packing containers and boxes that you have. This will come in handy at the handling stage once the move commences.

Needful List Of Items

Keep an inventory

Having a list of all the items in the house further simplifies the packing process. You are able to establish which items you have left out. In addition, it helps when unpacking as it gives you appropriate room to crosscheck whether all your items have been delivered.

The success of your packing process when moving to a new home depends on your prior preparation. If you get your new home, buy enough packing supplies, sort and have a track of all your items, and ensure that you are aware of how much your new house can accommodate, your packing process can be easy. Nevertheless, hiring a moving company saves you all these troubles.

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.
