Are you moving into your new home? Now all you need to figure out is how you’re going to pack and move everything without breaking the bank, that fragile lamp, or even your back. Proper packing is a crucial point that you must keep in mind when it comes to house shifting, after all, nobody likes to lose their dear belongings. So, in this post, we have come up with some helpful tips for you to consider while packing your valuables before moving out.

Moving Box

First, get a moving box that will be used for packing items. You can easily get one at a nearby local store. Often professional packing and moving service providers offer to pack your stuff; however, it will not be budget-friendly. Better to do it on your own.

Electronics Boxes

If you have electronic items that you wish to take along then it's time to find those dust-covered original boxes stacked somewhere in your house (probably in your storeroom). This will have two benefits. First, original packaging always offers the best protection. Secondly, they'll be easily identifiable among the stack of boxes so you won't have to hunt them down. Also, consider using quilted blankets, bubble wrap, and sturdy tape. They all do a good job of protecting delicate electronic items like TV, laptop, and more.

Packing Clothes and Bathing Items

One good thing about packing clothes is that they can be folded, or sometimes even rolled, and adjusted in a way that they occupy less space and there's still some room left for extra stuff to fit in. Also, do not forget to pack bathing items like toilet paper, shower curtain, hand soap, towels, sheets, or whatever else you think you will need for the first day at your new home. Having all the essential items at hand will make you feel more comfortable and prepared to tackle the overwhelming task of unpacking.

Decorative Items and Utensils

You should always pack decorative items like dishes and other fragile items separately. Wrapping them with a bubble wrap or towel blanket is a good idea. This will ensure protection from any external damage. Do not stack your dishes horizontally inside a box. Fill up the empty space with a bubble wrap or newspaper, or any other kind of paper to prevent cracking of dishes.

Numbering, Labelling, and Loading

Try to pack heavier items in a compact box; they'll be easy to carry around. As for lighter things like decorative pillows, towels, and linens, you can go with a large-size box.

While you're at it, take a note of the items being packed in the boxes. Try to keep belongings of a particular room in one pack. For instance, put all the bathing items in one box and kitchen utensils in another separate box.

Another great idea is to assign proper numbering to each box. This will facilitate in finding the right box at the right time. You can go straight to box #16 carrying plunger instead of digging through every “Bathroom” box just to find it. Moreover, you’ll know the exact number of boxes being transported so it will be easier to keep a track in case any of them is misplaced or goes missing.

By following the above-mentioned tips, you can make your packing day smooth and stress-free.
