If you decided to relocate, you probably heard of how important it is to plan your move and stay on top of organizing your belongings. Especially if you are not an organized person by nature, you should know how labeling moving boxes is important on the day of the move. You don’t want to settle in a new apartment and start unpacking not knowing which box is which. U.Santini Moving & Storage NYC can help you organize and plan your move better, so when the time comes, your relocation will be stress-free. Keep reading and enjoy the process.
First things first, you will need some supplies to safely pack your belongings. You should get as many boxes as possible. Preferably, you won’t buy the boxes as the move itself is expensive. You can get your boxes at a nearby store, as they will throw them away, so this is a win-win situation for both. Next, you need to get some colorful markers and labels. We recommend you dedicate a marker (color) to each room you will pack. You will also need a lot of bubble wrap, especially if you hired long distance movers Brooklyn, and you want to keep your stuff safe during the long drive.
Tips for labeling moving boxes
The easiest way to keep an eye on your belongings is to label them correctly. This will also save you some time, and prevent possible loss of your boxes. We gathered some crucial tips to help you organize and plan:
- prioritize your boxes
- create a color-coding and numbering system
- use all sides for labeling moving boxes
Once you are moved in, you don’t want to be opening every box just to find something really important and needed as soon as you settle in, like kitchen supplies. If an item needs to be unpacked right away, write “High” (or “H”). If it can be unpacked more slowly, and if it can stay packed for a long time, label it as “M” (“Medium”) or “L” (“Low”). This will also be useful if you are storing your boxes. We recommend a couple of storage Brooklyn has to offer, so you have a safe place for your belongings.
To make it easy to find items and identify whether every box has been delivered, use a numbering or a color-coding system. Each box gets a color (room also) and a number. When the boxes arrive you will know if a certain box is missing.
Labeling moving boxes on all sides
This tip is useful if you are using storage NYC. You will find your boxes easier in a storage unit if it’s coded correctly and visibly. The movers you hire will need to know where to place your belongings when they arrive at your new address (or storage unit). They won’t have to turn every box over and over again trying to find the label. If your property is quite heavy, your movers may not be able to carry it all. Labeling moving boxes on each side and adding more information about the contents, such as if it’s fragile or needs special care is super important.
