Packing for your big move

When it comes to moving, packing is one of the most important factors to consider. Your valuable items need to be packed correctly if you want to ensure they stay safe and protected during the move. Here are some tips to ensure your packing and moving experience goes as smoothly as possible.

– In the weeks and months leading up to the move, use the opportunity to clear out the clutter and get rid of old or unwanted items. This will make your move easier and save time and effort transporting possessions that you don’t really need anyway. You can sell on eBay or use other online resources, have a car boot sale, or donate items to charity. You may even make some extra cash that you can spend on your new home.

– Planning is the key to successful packing. Make a list of your important items before you begin. This will help to ensure that nothing is left behind.

– Stock up on packing materials, such as boxes in a variety of sizes, newspaper, bubble wrap, tape and bags for storing small items such as nails, screws and bolts.

– Pack heavier items in smaller boxes, if possible, as this will make them easier to transport.

– Make sure to clearly label all boxes so you know which room they need to be placed in when they arrive at the new property.

– Make up a separate box or bag containing the items you will need on your first day or night in the new property. This way you will have easy access to your essentials without having to completely unpack everything. You may wish to include items such as clean clothes, toiletries, cups, plates, and a kettle.
