We prepared a list with ten wise moving tips for you to have a successful and stress-free move.
One: Number Every Box and Keep a List: Create a record where you can write down the box number along with its contents.
Two: Have Supplies: Strong packing tape, plenty of various-shaped boxes and bins, packing paper or bubble wrap for stuffing and wrapping, tissue paper and/or bubble wrap for wrapping fragile items and black heavy-duty markers for labeling boxes.
Three: Packing Options: Plastic bins are a great investment as they are stackable and sturdy. Also, utilize luggage by filling with clothes and other items.
Four: Consider a Color Coding System: Rather than labeling boxes by room, consider tagging each box with a color-coded sticker. Assign each room a color and go for it.
Five: Create Personal Priority Boxes: This is a good option when individuals or families would like to be able to access certain goods immediately upon relocating. Family members can fill the box with the items they will need upon arriving at their new home.
Six: Pack Ahead: If you can start packing as soon as possible, you will save yourself a huge headache coming moving time. Start by packing items you know you will not need to utilize until after the move such as decorations, accessories, and books.
Seven: Keep Like with Like: Unpacking is a breeze when items were first packed together, keep books with books, plates with plates, electronics with electronics, etc.
Eight: Keep Cleaning Supplies Handy: Consolidate the cleaning supplies you will need to use prior to vacating your property. Items such as a vacuum, mop, and cleaners should be set aside.
