Where can you get some really nifty ideas and tips to make it easier for you? Definitely, you would get those tips from people who have been in this situation for a couple of times. They would know what would really work based on their experience.
Here’s a really cool video about moving tips that you’ll ever need:
#1 Buy 2 to 3 times more extra boxes.
It would be pretty tiring to go back and forth buying extra boxes. Same rule applies for tape!
#2 Buy paper tape.
It easily rips and you don’t need to use any dispenser. Just lay it flat on the surface and rip it away!
#3 Buy small boxes.
You can put it your fragile things in small boxes and easily carry them. Large boxes can get really heavy so, try to reconsider small boxes.
#4 Put everything in boxes.
This will make things more stackable in your car or moving van.
#5 Pack a travel bag.
You can pack necessities such as clothes and toiletries, that you’ll need for the next couple of days. Just try to imagine that you’re traveling.
#6 Set aside essentials.
Prepare things that you’ll need right away after you moved in to your new house. Toilet paper, hand wash, you name it.
#7 Pack in sections.
Start off with stuff that you’re not going to need at all such as books and other knick-knacks that you might have. Creating sections would make it easier for you especially if you’re not a multitasker.
#8 Label boxes in detail.
Be specific about what things are inside the box. For example, don’t just write “kitchen” because you might have some boxes with the same label and you can’t figure it which box has the stuff that you need.
#9 Overalls and boots.
What you wear while packing and moving can be important. Overalls can give you some pockets which can be useful if ever you don’t want to lose your markers and stuff. Somehow, overalls and boots can give some amount of protection for your body.
#10 Use trusted movers.
Go with the best of the best. Just imagine entrusting your personal stuff with strangers. There are some incidents of stealing so, always go with movers who have a very good reputation.
