Moving Tricks That Save You Time, Trouble And Effort

Moving can be a busy and stressful time for even the most seasoned of movers. That is why it is a good idea to consider a few common tricks that are designed to save you time, trouble and effort on your next move. For example, when moving dresser drawers consider keeping all contents of the draws intact and simply covering the top of the draws with Saran Wrap or Press’N Seal type plastic. As a result, the dresser drawer becomes its own moving box. This saves a few steps since a separate box will not have to be packed and then unpacked.

More Effective And Convenient

Jewelry displays can also be wrapped with the same type of material as a way to prevent loss or damage. Even more effective and convenient is to buy a large roll of stretch wrap from your local moving and storage company. This is a far superior type of material that can easily help you group like items together. It is also effective at protecting furniture from getting scratched or scuffed in the moving process.

Holding Small Or Tiny Parts

Another great item to have on hand for any move is a few boxes of sandwich bags. These are ideal for holding small items or parts. This is especially true when taking apart furniture that has a large number of screws, bolts or nuts. Even the mounting hardware used with a flat screen TV can easily be stored in a Ziploc plastic bag. As an added note, you could even attach a plastic bag with small items to the corresponding piece of furniture or item that it is associated with.

Simply Refer To The Photos

Finally, consider taking pictures of how your electronic item wires are connected prior to taking everything apart. This can be a lifesaver when it comes time to put all your electronics back together at your new home. If you can’t remember where the wires were positioned, simply refer to the photos that you took so that you can return all components back to their original spot.
