Moving Tips, Best Kept Packing Tips

OUR BEST KEPT PACKING TIPS FOR MOVING

When you take the time to pack up all your items the smart way, you’ll be making things much easier on yourself when it comes time to unpack in your new home. Follow these packing rules to make sure nothing gets misplaced. Organizing your new home will be easy!

 

1: LABEL YOUR BOXES

This one is easy: label each box so you know what’s in it, and which room it goes in. This will make unpacking much easier on you. 

2: THE GOLDEN RULE

The heavier the item, the smaller the box! It’s much easier to carry heavier items when they’re in smaller boxes. Save the larger boxes for things that are lighter, but hard to carry on their own. Never over-pack a box.

3: ONE BOX, ONE ROOM

Pack the same room in the same box. Don't mix. This way unpacking is easy.

4: NO PACKING ON MOVING DAY

Take on this busy day with all of your boxes already packed. It's one less stress. This also includes things like removing all pictures from the walls before moving day.


MOVING TIPS WHEN WORKING WITH MOVERS

Your team of professional movers is there to help. So you can help them out by making sure they have all the information they need. Here are a few things you can do to help your team out on moving day.

1: LAST IN, FIRST OUT

Tell us which boxes you need first at your new home and we'll load it last on our trucks. That way, you won’t have to go searching for those important items.

2: FINISH PACKING BEFORE MOVING DAY

We repeat: no packing on moving day! Have everything ready to roll when the team shows up.

3: KEEP YOUR MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WITH YOU

Don’t pack cash, jewelry, or prescription medications - keep these with you. You might need to access them on moving day, and it’s nice for the movers if they know they don’t need to worry about keeping track of these small, but very important items.

4: SORT OUT THE DETAILS AHEAD OF TIME

Please know where your movers can park the truck, how they can best access your apartment, and if there are any time limitations on parking or moving hours

5: PREP YOUR FURNITURE

Remove all heavy and breakable items are from dressers and desks, so they’re easier to lift. It also helps to disassemble bedroom sets to save time on moving day.

Some Of The Best Moving Tips You Will Ever Get

Moving home is one of the most stressful things that you will ever experience. Nobody likes it, although we all love the result of moving into a brand new home. However, there are plenty of things you can do to make this experience a positive one. The following moving tips may be just what you need. The first thing that you must do is find a good Charlottesville moving company, because they will be able to make your job a whole lot easier. If you find a good company to help you, then they will basically do all the hard work for you. In fact, they may even supply you with the boxes and come up with solutions such as short term storage, if there is a period of time in between moving out of one property and into another one.

Unfortunately, there will always be a few things you need to do yourself. The most important one of those is sorting through your belongings. You are going to have to be really strict and make three piles of stuff. The first is a pile of things that absolutely need to come to the new property. The second pile is what you can throw away. Be ruthless and throw as much away as you can. Don't look back, the future is forward in your new property, where you don't need all that old stuff. The final pile you need to make is the pile of things that can go to charity. Some of the best residential movers Charlottesville VA has to offer will even take this to your chosen charity for you, although most would charge you something for that. Again, be ruthless. If it is something you won't use anymore, but that isn't broken, then send it to charity and make someone else happy with it.

Finally, a stress-free move is a well-planned move. Never leave anything to the last minute. Start sorting out your three piles as soon as you know you're moving and make sure you find one of the best movers Charlottesville VA has available as soon as possible. That is also because they may be able to provide you with boxes. Have a plan that clearly states who is doing what and when and make it as detailed as possible. Also, don't forget that moving is always in two stages: leaving one property on the one hand, and entering a new property on the other. This means you also need to come up with a plan for what to do when you are in your new property. Clearly mark your boxes with the room in which their contents will need to go to make that stage of the process easy as well.
