1. Pack early
You should always plan to pack early as you never know what can go wrong at the last minute of the move.
2. Start with rooms you least need
The rooms that are used the least so they should always be the first option as you wouldn’t be using the things in the room so less work for you at the end.
3. Pack one room at a time
This is a very good practice because your things are all arranged for the room so you never lose or misplace a single thing.
Toss off the things that are not required, sell them or give them away because these things are only take up use full space.
5. Do not exceed the limit of 30 pounds for a box
This is very important for you to consider if you, are exceeding the limit for 30 pounds you might ending up paying more for the move because the weight will be more for a man to pick up.
6. Fill empty gaps
Whenever you pack glass and ceramics plates and cutlery always fill the gaps in between it would prevent anything from moving freely and thus saving to from breaking.
7. Label your boxes
Don’t forget to label your boxes it will help you keep track of all the things in different boxes, and help you when you unpack.
8. Put heavier boxes on the bottom
Always put the heavier boxes in the bottom because those are the ones which can damage or crush other boxes and spoil valuable things.
Always have to box of essentials and put it the van last because this box would contain items of most frequent use.
Once you have packed everything it would be a whole lot easier for a man with a van to pick the box up and put it in the van.
Always remember to put your kitchen items separate, because they are very sensitive and can create quite a mess if you not handled properly. The canned food and the bottle food will have their own expiry which you need to check. Extra attention is required to handle the glass products and ceramic plates, knives and other kitchen items.
Always prepare a box of essentials which you are going to use immediately after the move is finished make sure you put this box at the last, so you can take it out first and use it.
