Moving and Packing Tips

1. DIY:

Packing the majority, if not all, of your possessions yourself will save you money. You can free up the best movers crew’ time to pack heavier items, which typically take more time to pack and load into the moving truck, by packing non-fragile items like books, linens, clothing, and shoes yourself.

2. Limit the Weight of Each Box:

You should always attempt to use a smaller box when packing heavy items. As a general rule, aim to maintain the box’s weight at or below 50 lbs. Shoes shouldn’t be packed in one package with your clothing; instead, place a few pairs at the bottom of each box. Never forget to lift with your knees rather than your spine.

3. Pack Your Own Valuables:

Never allow a moving business to pack precious items like jewelry, heirlooms from the family, or other priceless possessions. Jewelry, sports memorabilia, picture albums, and other valuables should be packed by you. Additionally, if at all possible, attempt to transport these kinds of items in your car or personally.

4. Get the Right Size and Strength Boxes:

Use moving boxes for all valuables. Save money by going to your local supermarket and asking for boxes. Pack your clothing in bags and suitcases you already own.

Ensure that you pack your fragile things separately in the boxes. Old newspapers, bubble wrap, linens, blankets, pillows, and towels are all acceptable materials. separate wrapping for fragile goods. Avoid leaving empty spaces in boxes that could move and change while being transported. For each package, use sturdy packing tape (not masking tape). Your packing time will be a little bit longer, but it will be worth it to safeguard your valuables!
