Moving house is one of the most exciting experiences in your life. It opens up a new chapter and lets a new wave of emotions in. However, it could turn into a nightmare if you don’t know how to do it.
Moving from A to B seems simple before the chaos erupts and all the stress in the middle of the working week falls on your shoulders.
This way, we prepared some brief suggestions on how to pack and unpack your stuff in the process of moving.
Use your belongings for wrapping and sorting
You can use your own stuff for packing purposes. For example, you can wrap things with clothes, towels, and textiles that you have. For anchoring, you can use heavy items like vases or cooking pots. To organize your stuff into something, you can use laundry baskets or shoe bins. Then think of items that need protection like delicates or finer textiles that could be damaged and ripped easily. These must be packed with professional materials.
Now that you know how to use your items to make packing a little easier, we can tell you how to place them.
Once you get a box, place all anchoring items at the bottom, then place a layer of wrapping materials over them. Place an organizational item on top and put your fragile objects in it. Put some more items around the edge of the organizational item.
Pack all electronics and dishes as tightly as you can without breaking them.
Once you have all items boxed up and packaged, it’s time to place them in a transportation vehicle.
Organization for a moving van or car
When you start taking the boxes to a vehicle, it’s crucial to remember some important things- make sure your necessities are on-top and labeled.
Always sort all boxes in the following order:
- Top: lighter boxes
- Bottom: heavy boxes
Pro tip: you can put some soft and squishy objects between the boxes to keep everything in place.
If you’re moving in a car, now that is a different experience to the moving van. You still have the same rules as with a van when it comes to light and heavy boxes. It will help if you keep your possessions in a way that doesn’t shift the car off the road.
