Simple Moving Tips That Sometimes Get Overlooked

In the heat of the rush during a move, many things can be missed that would have made a move much easier and safer. For example, something as simple as packing an overnight bag that contains all of your essentials can save the day. Toiletries and a change of clothing as well as laptop computers and other important items should be kept close at hand in an overnight bag. Equally important is to consider placing all items that will be needed first in a clear plastic bin.

Carefully Wrapped In Clothing

Everything from paper towels to trash bags and cookware as well as phone chargers and toilet paper can be placed in a clear plastic container to ensure easy and quick access. In addition, all breakable items such as glasses and dishes should be carefully wrapped in clothing or quality bubble wrap. This will greatly reduce the chances of breakage. Best of all, using clothing is a great way to save money and still get everything moved in a safe way.

Cost Of Packing Material

One great trick that is often used is that of using clean socks to pack glasses and stemware. The idea here is that these are items that will be moved anyway and it saves in terms of the cost of packing material. Another great tip when it comes to moving is to always label your boxes with the contents as well as the room where they will be placed upon arrival. Once you have arrived at your destination it is simply just a matter of unpacking room by room.

Mark The Boxes On All Sides

As items are removed from the truck, they should be placed directly in the room where they will be used. This increases efficiency, saves time and reduces stress. When labeling boxes it is a good idea to mark the boxes on all sides so that they can be easily identified. Consider placing all toiletries, cleaning supplies and other liquids in containers in sealed plastic bags so that spillage does not damage other items in the box.
