Everyone wants to make moving easier. Unless you have thousands of dollars to throw around, you are likely to be very hands on during your move. This means packing—and lots of it. Consider the following tips to make packing up your treasures that much easier.
Tip 1. Gather The Right Tools
Packing materials are a must, but choosing the right ones can be tricky. You should purchase packing materials according to what you need to pack. For example, if you have tons of paintings or picture frames to pack, then invest in small flat picture boxes. For glassware, consider a cell kit where you can pack things individually within a larger box. The key is to know what you’re packing and then gather your materials accordingly.
Tip 2. Get Rid of Junk
If you haven’t used an item in more than six months then it doesn’t need to go with you to your new home. Although it can be emotionally distressing to throw out your child’s old finger paintings, you can’t hang on to them forever. Look at your long distance move as a new beginning, and treat it as such by throwing out your junk.
Tip 3. Get Organized
You can never be too organized when it comes to a long-distance move. We suggest that you do things such as take pictures of the inside of your boxes once you seal them, just to guarantee that they arrive in the same condition they were packed in. This protects you from the mover claiming it was your responsibility for breaks or damage. You also want to take an inventory of all of your belongings to guarantee everything you want and need has been packed.
These are just a few packing tips you can use to make your move much easier.
