Moving Homes? Here are 7 Simple Tips To Make Packing Easier

A huge part of a successful relocation has to do with efficiently packing up your home or office. While this may seem like a daunting, even impossible, task at first, with the right attitude, supplies, and expertise, packing up your belongings can become easier.

Here are some simple tips to help you get started:


  1. Start as early as possible. It may seem simple, but getting started on packing can be challenging. A few weeks before your relocation, start packing several boxes a day, beginning with items that are least essential to your daily life. Remember: If you pace yourself, you’ll be more organized and your move won’t seem so overwhelming.


  1. Go room by room. To make your packing more efficient, focus on one room at a time, and make sure not to mix items from different rooms into one box. If you have small items or miniature knick-knacks, wrap them in brightly colored tissue paper so they won’t get misplaced or accidentally thrown out.


  1. Don’t forget the packing labels. One of the most important things you can do is label your boxes clearly. On the top side of each box, write a small description of the contents and the name of the room they have to go in. This will provide great clarity for your movers and make unpacking a breeze.


  1. Find the right movers and packers. If you decide to enlist the help of professional movers, it’s important to do your research. A moving company can often make or break your entire experience, so the more effort you put into finding a reputable company ahead of time, the less stress you’ll have on moving day.


  1. Pack the right way. Before you begin packing, make sure you have enough boxes so you don’t have to overpack. If your boxes are too heavy, they’ll take longer to move and your valuables might get damaged. Always pack heavy and light things in one box, with the lighter items at the top.


  1. Protect your valuables. The last thing you want to deal with is broken items when unpacking. Bubble wrap will protect your glassware and other delicates, while protection blankets can cushion bulky items that won’t fit in boxes. Also, consider using white packing paper instead of newspaper because the ink can stain your items.


  1. Keep a box full of essentials for your first night. Pack an essentials box for your first night in your new home, because you may be too tired to unpack! Include toiletries, bottled water, toilet paper, pyjamas and snacks, and make sure to connect your electricity and gas ahead of time so you aren’t sitting in the dark!
