Moving is never stress-free especially when you have to pack your valuables all by yourself. Or even, when you hire a relocation service, there are still some things that you have to do on your own because the movers do not take responsibility for it such as organizing things and making a mark on each suitcase to have a better idea of the contents. If you have ever experienced moving or are going through the exhausting procedure, then you must be now aware of the complications that make the relocation even more difficult.
Things that you at one time thought were easy but now you’ve changed your perspective, welcome to the stressful job i.e. moving with the all the essentials packed in a collection of boxes that are extremely tough to both pack and unpack.
Here are top 10 moving tricks that will help you to make your relocation easier and convenient even after shifting to the destination.
Get the cartons from a nearby supermarket for free:
Don’t buy the cartons, make a smart move and get them for free from the nearby shop by asking their salesperson to lend you some that are of no use to them.
Put the first day belongings in a separate container:
Pack smartly by putting all of your first-day things in a separate container like a laundry basket to have an easier access to the essential items needed on the first day.
Use plastic wrap to fix the things in the same box:
Plastic wraps are the best saviors when it comes to dividing sections in the same box by putting different things in it, use them to pack the things tightly.
Pack the fragile items in a spare cloth:
bubble wrap are the best things to use to pack the fragile items in so that they don’t break in the rough shipping procedure.
You can also hire a full service mover.
Label the boxes each with a separate color theme:
Label and color theme the boxes to have a better idea of what’s inside the box and to which does it belong to save more time and energy.
Tidy up while packing:
Cleaning while packing is the best thing to do because it is easier too as compared to doing it later, after shifting in the chaos.
Use all the boxes for packing:
Utilize all the suitcases and bags available in your home to save space and saving money on the extra cartons/boxes.
Make different boxing for each category:
Packing different things of each category such as hardware, toiletries etc. in a different box is helpful in unpacking later.
Get rid of the unnecessary items:
Do this to prevent the extra space that is gained by the unnecessary items, either sale them, giveaway, or dump them.
Pack the books in a wheeled suitcase:
This way, your books will not tear the cartons, remain in place, and easier to move as well.
