Moving Tips to Make Your Move Easier

  1. Pack an Overnight Bag – At the end of a tiring moving day, you will probably not want to unpack. If you pack an overnight bag, you will be set.
  2. Pack Necessities You Might Need ASAP – If you have things you use on a daily basis that you will want to get to first, pack them in a box that you can easily find.
  3. Pack Breakables – To save on bubble wrap cost, pack breakables in towels or clothing. You can pack glasses in clean socks! You will be killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
  4. Labeling – Make sure to label each box by room. It will make unloading and unpacking a breeze.
  5. Shower Items – Put everything you need to take a shower in one box labeled Moving Night Shower. Be sure to include shower curtain and rod (if needed), towels, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, etc.
  6. Toiletries – wrap toiletries in plastic or put in plastic bags to keep them from leaking.
  7. Plate Packing – Pack plates vertically, like records, to help avoid breaking.
  8. Small Parts – Put any small parts, screws, etc., in plastic bags and label for anything you have disassembled so they will be easily found.
  9. Electronics – Take pictures of how electronics are connected so they will be easy to get the wires reconnected.
  10. Vacuum Seal Clothing – Vacuum sealing clothing and linens can help with space saving, especially anything out of season for easy storage.
