We know you are looking for ways on how to pack quickly. Aren’t you? Read on and ease your packing job.

Don’t Procrastinate Packing

Of course, there is no exact number of days as to which you should start packing before moving out. Based on the size of your house, you can determine how long would you take.

Let’s Go Room by Room

Let us give you an example of self-pack moving so that you understand the objective. You can start with the rooms on the highest floor, and then slowly you can move your way towards the ground floor. You can pack seasonal items such as garden tools, Christmas lights, etc. to handle other items easily. Sorting already packed items is much easier than packing items one or two days before the actual move.

Declutter and Donate

When you are packing stuff, you come across things that have been in the storeroom for years. You might no longer need them, then why carry them to your new home? It is better to donate them to someone who might need and use them. If the items are no longer usable, put them in the garbage without any second thoughts. Professional packing services will help you deal with the clutter.

Why Not Have a Detailed List of Items?

You will love this tip, especially if you have a large collection of books, CDs, etc. What if you write books on all the boxes containing books, how would you know which one contains the specialized literature collection and which one has history books? The solution for this problem is to have a detailed inventory list and stick it on each box.

One Room at a Time, Please

This is one of the most important things that you should keep in mind while packing boxes. Now the real question arises – whether to segregate items by category or by room? The answer to this depends on what’s convenient for you. However, it’s better if you pack things in rooms so that you are more organized while guiding the movers.

While unpacking the items, you can follow the reverse order of your packing process. Pick up those items that don’t need any unpacking, and later move to the smaller boxes. This will, ultimately, reduce the strain on your muscles because by the end of the relocation process you would be too tired.

Don’t Make the Boxes Too Heavy

When you are moving, you will be taking many boxes with you for sure. Ensure that you don’t overweigh the boxes to avoid back injury. There are fair chances of boxes not able to withstand the weight when moving it. Let us tell you the best packing tip. Put lighter items in large boxes and heavy items in small boxes. Trust it, it will save you a lot of hassle while moving.
