Moving is all about getting your things from one place to another. Sounds simple, but as you know, it’s not even close. Before you hire Mountain Moving Company to come by with friendly movers and a truck, you need to have your things organized, packed, and ready to go. Here are some tips to make packing for your move as easy as possible.
- Start as early as you can. Packing and moving takes planning. If you know you have to move by a certain time—your lease is up, your new job starts, etc. — write a checklist for everything you need to get done before moving day and schedule your time. If you start planning a month in advance, you won’t be able to pack everything. Start packing things you won’t need before you move. For example, if it’s summer time, pack all of your heavy coats and boots first. The more work you get done before crunch time, the better.
- Label boxes. This seems so simple and obvious, but many people eschew this crucial step, making it more difficult to organize your new place, because you have no idea where anything goes.
- Pack one room at a time. This practice helps you keep items that are going to the same room together, and allows you to set up a systematic method of packing. Packing one room at a time will also help you clean rooms as you go as well.
