1. HANDLING THE DIFFICULT PART OF A MOVE
If you are completely new to the process of moving out to a new home it is good for you to learn that the packing is the most difficult part of it. A logical question would be how to make it easier and that means faster, less exhausting, less chaotic and shorter. If you follow the tips briefly described in this article you will not only be able to complete your packing in an efficient and quick way, but you will also greatly succeed in making the entire experience of your removal better.
2. TIPS ON HOW TO MASTER THE PROCESS OF PACKING
-First, you need to single out the most important things you will need when you eventually arrive at your new home and place them in special boxes, labeling them distinctively. Such things might include a pillow, some food provisions, utensils, basic cleaning tools, etc. In short, the things you will need in order to calmly live in the unequipped house for a couple of days before all of the possessions are brought in properly.
-Second, you will need to get rid of all those unnecessary possessions you won’t be taking with you to your new home. This is quite important because it will not only free up space for you but if you manage to sell some of the furniture it will also financially support you. Of course don’t forget your biggest secret weapon when it comes down to stabilizing your finances-your old home. Make it rentable or simply sell it. The money you receive from it will greatly contribute to your new life at your new living place.
-Third, think of the protective materials you will be using for the packing. For instance, you might be short on bubble wrap or packing paper and if this happens to be the case you will have to use other means of protecting your normal and more fragile items alike. You can use old cushions, towels, blankets and rugs. It doesn’t matter how you wrap the protective material around your belongings. The important thing is to cover every angle of the item with protective matter and then secure it to its container by filling the empty spaces with protective material.
-Fourth, make a plan and follow it. The best way to pack your apartment or house is by making initially a list of all your stuff that you will be transporting to your new living place and then acquire the appropriate boxes for them. Then go in each room carrying all of your boxes and start packing everything room by room. Finally, drag all the filled boxes to one place and wait for the moving company to come and start working on them.
-Fifth, whenever you fill in your boxes with packing materials and items, make sure you do it with measure. Each box can only manage to handle a particular weight. You don’t want your box torn and the belonging inside broken on the stairs, the floor, or the road. Set a limit of weight for your boxes and follow it.
-Sixth, in all likelihood there will be some large furniture in your house or apartment that won’t be able to leave the front door as they are in whole. You will have to disassemble some. The important thing when doing that is to always remember to keep all the separate parts together and to keep the tiny particles that hold them together in a separate tightly closed bag which accompanies the parts of the individual furniture set at all times.
