Moving house is never easy. One of the headaches that you must address when moving is the question of how to package your household goods. Three Men And A Truck gives a checklist below that you should ideally tick off whilst packaging.
Prior to packaging, there is a starter pack of sorts that you need to have at your disposal. This is listed below:
Boxes: This is the main ‘tool’ for the job. Your goal is to find as many size(s) of boxes as possible. Ensure that you get free or low priced boxes that are in good condition. Sources of your box could either be neighbors or shopping stores that discard them after unpacking their products.
Bubble Wrap: This offers two advantages, first it ensures that the household good being moved is steady when moving. Secondly, it ensures that any superficial scratches /denting to your stuff are prevented. Bubble wraps can be purchased from office supplies stores.
Moving Dolly: A dolly ensures that you can move your boxes from one room to another. The leverage offered by this bit of equipment is that it saves you from back wrenching work.
The rule of thumb when it comes to packaging is enumerated below:
Like Items/ Same Box: Ensure that all like items go to the same box. This means that your photo frames should not be packed together with flower vases. In the same vein, ensure that each item that you pack is wrapped in some sort of padding, think of old newspaper pages or bubble wrap;
Volume: Do not fill boxes to the brim. This is on account that a cartoon that is filled up could suddenly tear at the base and this could potentially lead to loss or damage of your household good.
Labeling: Correctly label each box. A nightmare scenario could unfold when unpacking non label boxes and you consistently miss your target. It goes without saying that this could play havoc on your stress levels.
Essentials: Finally when packing do ensure that you do set aside a package that will hold your essential household goods. Essential in this case is in reference to medical boxes, toiletries, a change of clothes, and some utensils. The easy with which you access these items can smooth your transition between two points.
Logistics of Packing
You as the client leave the logistics of moving in our hands. Our mode of operation is to ensure that the heaviest of items (furniture) is fastened and placed at the extreme end of the truck. In the mid-section are items such as refrigerators- stuff that are bulky but do not take a lot of floor space. This is then followed by boxes.
Organizing your affairs before moving makes it more manageable to move your household goods. As a strategy it lowers stress levels plus saves on time. A local mover worth their salt will guide you on how to walk this process and as you tick all these boxes be assured that we, Three Men And A Truck will walk this journey with you.
