- Get professional supplies, don’t try to use grocery store boxes to pack you precious belongings. Banana boxes or grocery store boxes are not made to pack thing like book, plates ,or wardrobes. using the wrong tape can cause your boxes to open and spill the contents, which could be really bad. using proper packing paper can also really make a difference for example wrapping plates in newspaper can cause smudges of ink which would cause you to have to wash all your dishes when moving in…simple measures make all the difference.
- Pack Per room – Start with 1 room and pack it all the way then move on to the next room. Don’t pack random. Mark every box with consistent information. For example pack master bedroom – mark all boxes Master Bedroom – then mark sub information like Master Bedroom – Mike’s Closet Master bedroom – Mikes night table ect. Being organized is the key to stress free moving and stress free unpacking
- Use an appropriate vehicle – if you are moving yourself at least try to get 1 big vehicle and load it in one day with everything. this will save you all kinds of time and energy rather than making all kinds of trips you can organize loading the truck and packing according to how you will unpack.
- Have a plan for loading the vehicle and pack it according to how you want to unpack. This may require you coming up with a plan for the new house or office ect but in the end this will save you time.
- Hire Professionals- If you can do it hire professionals to take care of everything . Let them come pack you house label and do everything properly. Professionals can handle everything from packing organizing and even offer short term storage
