Moving into a new house can be a stressful and time-consuming endeavor, so it is best to have an organized system to ensure the process runs smoothly. By packing well, you will not need worry about anything when the full service moving company you hired arrives with their movers & packers to pack and pick up your belongings; you will simply take your luggage and walk out smiling. The following are steps you can take to make your moving experience as stress-free and organized as possible.
- The first step is to make checklist for moving with everything that needs to be done – then you check off items as you complete the tasks.
- Gather all the items that you want to take in the luggage with you in one room, ideally on top of a bed or table, so you can look at, and work with, everything without bending your back. This can include important documents, clothes for two days – both for work and for staying at home, toiletries, medicine, and objects of personal value.
- Bring your checklist and moving and packing supplies, including newspaper, packing tape, bubble wrap, and scissors to the designated packing room. If you don’t have bubble wrap, you can buy it at stores that sell office supplies or from moving and packing companies.
- Start by wrapping any delicate object of personal value. Use bubble wrap or newspaper and clearly label the items to make it easier for you to know what it is.
- Fold all of your clothes neatly; tee-shirts can be rolled up to save space.
- Now it’s time to put it all in the luggage. Start with tee-shirts and towels, as they create a nice cushion.Place your toiletries and personal items, protecting any object that can be easily broken with additional layers of clothes.
- Cover the above-mentioned objects with heavier clothes.
- Leave work clothes and what you plan to wear the following for last, so you can easily get them without having to fully unpack.
- Insert important documents in the inner pocket of the luggage.
- The last thing to go in the luggage should be medicine, making it very accessible any time you need.
Now you are set to go! Order some pizza and relax to good music as you see the professional movers neatly and carefully packing everything else in your house.
