Moving is stressful, no matter how near or far your relocation is taking you. While the idea of moving into a new home can be somewhat stressful, most people find packing to be the most significant stress. To help reduce this stress, our professional packing services offer these packing tips.

  1. Pack less – the best way to have less to pack is to go through your home and declutter. Determine what you want to keep; the rest can be sold, donated, or tossed in the trash.
  2. Furniture – measure the rooms in your new home, there is no point in paying to transport furniture that won’t fit.
  3. Bite-sized chunks – rather than trying to do all your packing in one or two days, try packing for an hour each day. Doing so will make packing far less stressful.
  4. Moving essentials – create a tub or box of moving essentials, including disposable dishes and silverware, snacks, drinks, toiletries, and a change of clothes for everyone.
  5. Colored labels – make it easy for the movers (or you) to put boxes in the right rooms by using colored labels. Use a different color for each room and place one sticker of each color on a piece of paper with the room it belongs to listed.
  6. Create an inventory – create a written and photographic inventory of electronics, jewelry, antiques, and other valuables. If anything happens to them, this will make it easier for your insurance company to payout.
  7. The right supplies – be sure you have plenty of boxes in different sizes and shapes, tape, packing paper, and bubble wrap before you get started. As a leading moving company, our packing services include a comprehensive selection of professional-grade moving supplies available for purchase.
  8. Don’t overload the boxes – it can be tempting to try and cram as much stuff as you can into each box to save space and money. Often, this results in damaged items, and if the boxes are too heavy, injury. Pack heavy items on the bottom, lighter ones on top, and keep the weight of each box under 50 pounds.
  9. No empty spaces – empty spaces in boxes can allow items to move around and become damaged. Use packing paper, peanuts, towels, t-shirts, and linens to fill these spaces. Be sure you tape the boxes securely.

The most important tip is to take your time. Start early and give you plenty of time to get the job done. Not only will this be less stressful, but it will reduce your risk of opening boxes to find damaged items.
