Regardless of the purpose of relocation, moving into a new house is an exciting experience. But with the “Zeal and Zest” comes an unavoidable headache of packing your belongings.
The packing process sucks most of the pre-move energy and time, but it is of paramount importance to settle down in the new home.
Today, in this post, we’re enlisting four pro packing tactics that are effective yet easy-to-implement. Let’s take a tour :-
Tactic 1: Pack What You Need and Love; Not Everything
Packing all the items to your new address seems obvious, but this isn’t practical always.
Many of your belongings may not serve a purpose in your new home, because of the size & layout, surrounding, new lifestyle, and climate change.
Therefore, it is advisable to pare down the possessions before the move to lessen the relocation hassles and costs.
As a thumb rule, pack items that are of practical use or carry sentimental value to the family.
Sell or denote the rejected stuff to the underprivileged people.
Tactic 2: Prepare Detailed Inventory List
So, you’ve decluttered your property, and decided on things you are taking and what you are leaving behind, right?
The next step is creating a detailed inventory list of things you are moving.
Prepare the list, room by room, noting down the information of each item. For instance, make a list of fragile items, woolen clothes so on so forth. Take the photos of the expensive stuff as a visual record of the item’s condition. Create a list of all the things on a paper and on your computer as well to keep a proper track.
This information will be useful for your local movers in Miami while making room for different boxes in the trucks during the relocation.
Lastly, unpacking the boxes at your new house will be a lot easier when you have maintained an inventory list.
Tactic 3: Have Adequate Packing Supplies
When you know what you’ve to move, figure out what and how much packing supplies are required. The supplies include the bubble wrap, packing tape, moving boxes, packing paper, etc.
Start gathering the packing necessities well in advance to cut down on the moving supplies buying costs. Ask the neighbors, friends or retailers for free cardboard boxes.
Use the big containers in the house as a substitute for boxes. Materials like bed sheets, blankets, towels, clothes, newspapers, etc. best for cushioning the fragile items.
Tactic 4: Start As Early As PossiblePacking is a time-draining process- far more than what you perceive.
By underestimating the packing time, you’ll end up committing packing blunders. Also, moving delays incur additional expenses, and jeopardize the safety of the items.
A pro tactic for efficient and timely packing is creating a moving calendar. The calendar defines the various tasks assigned within the family. This way, you’ll be able to track the progress and make sure packing is done on time.
