Everyone can use some moving tips when they are packing stuff to relocate to a new location. If you pack correctly, you can save a lot of time and money. Here, we have collected some helpful tips that can make your packing more efficient and easier:

Organise

Listing down things is one of the most crucial aspects of packing. You can do this with a pen and paper or through a computer. Number and label all of your boxes so you don’t lose track of its contents. It is also important that you label fragile items properly. Try to pack heavy items in small boxes because it makes them easier to transport. There will be lots of items that you probably won’t need, so instead of throwing them away, you can donate them to charity.

Remember not to leave anything to the last minute and plan as early as possible. Check if the contents insurance would cover all the things. Place all hazardous material such as paint, bleach and aerosols in a separate box and keep it away from rest of your stuff. If possible wash all your clothes before time so that the box does not become damp. It would be a good idea if you would place all the dirty laundry in a separate box as well. Pack important documents together such as birth and marriage certificates and keep them in a separate bag with you.

Planning the Supplies

You will probably need a lot of boxes, and having enough of them would make your life easier. If you buy the boxes from a moving company you can always return the unused boxes for a refund. Have about 10 boxes set aside for cleaning, clothing and beddings because that’s the first thing you will need when you start unpacking at your new home. You may also require a strong plastic tape to close up the boxes securely. Use bubble wrap in almost all of them so that nothing gets damaged, boxes get placed on top of one another, and sometimes they can fall and the bubble wrap can reduce the impact force, so it is better to be safe than sorry.

Wardrobe boxes are perfect for bulky and lightweight items such as comforters, pillows and blankets, or clothes that need to remain hanging or ironed. Just know the dimensions of the box so that you can estimate the number of items you will be able to place inside the box. You can also use them as closet storage boxes, shoe boxes or for other bulky items such as fabric bolts, large baskets or gift wrap tubes.
