Suggestions For Packing Successfully – Items To Be Aware Of

January 4, 2020 Off By Carl Hayes

There are two sides of the moving-to-a-new-house process. The first one is, of course, the most important – the excitement of moving somewhere new; the second phase of the moving process can become something quite exhausting and stressful.

But moving doesn’t necessarily need to be a time of apprehension and stress. Follow these easy tips and keep everything organized, so you can fully enjoy the entire experience.

The first step to the packing process is purchasing all your packing supplies. You will need boxes, tape, markers, bubble wrap and extra newspapers to start with. Having all these on hand gets you off to a good start.

You can also use your clothes and pillow as buffers between any breakable objects you might have. But of course you should start your packing with a good plan.

Most people find this an ideal time to also create an inventory list. The list will help you identify every item that you are packing and which box the item is in. Later, you can use this list to determine how much insurance you need for your possessions. Pick a room and pack everything in that room first before moving on to the next room.

Remember, you will have to carry the boxes as well so don’t overload a box making it too heavy to carry. It is good to pack small and light items in bigger boxes and pack larger, heavier items in small boxes.

Make sure you keep your boxes to less than 50 pounds, to avoid any unnecessary back pains. Make full use of your bubble wrap and your old newspapers: wrap everything that needs to be wrapped and place all your glasses and other breakables in storage bins made of plastic, surrounded by bubble wrap.

Prior to actually moving, place all the things you might need for the first night and say in your new house in a separate bag. Moving out is a process that requires some planning and patience, but you will make it, no need to worry.
