Successfully moving to a new home often starts with the packing. Most people are surprised to learn that, when it comes to packing boxes, it's important to have a strategy to ensure all of your personal belongings arrive safely. Consider these simple tips when it's time for you to start packing boxes.
Get The Right Boxes
The first step to success in packing boxes is to get the right boxes. Don't waste time running around searching for cardboard containers to pack your valuables. Rent plastic storage containers. Plastic bins are durable and strong, ensuring that everything you place inside is protected during your move. Best of all, you won't have to worry about constructing each box and taping it up once its packed. Rented boxes come already built with an easy to close top for added convenience.
Pick The Right Size
It's not enough to use plastic bins; you have to select the right sized plastic bins. Rent various-sized storage containers that will work well with the different sizes and shapes of the items you need to pack.
Think about the weight of your belongings when packing boxes. Pack heavier items at the bottom of the bins and lighter items on top.
Fill In The Gaps
Empty spaces in the boxes leave room for mishaps and damage. Once you've put everything you need in a storage container, fill in any extra spaces between items. Use clothing, towels or packing papers to keep the box tightly packed and balanced.
Go Room By Room
Don't mix different items from different rooms in the same boxes. Keep everything from one living space in the same box to make it as easy as possible when it's time to begin the unpacking process.
Label Your Containers
After you've packed and organized all your boxes, be sure to put a label on it. Include the room it should be placed in, as well as a general description of its contents to make your move as efficient as possible.
