Fortunately, our Atlanta packing service professionals of All My Sons Moving & Storage are well versed in the art of moving. We carry the best packing supplies in Atlanta, and our movers have seen it all. As a result, we’ve outlined this comprehensive guide to give you the best packing hacks you’ll ever need for any move!
Best Way to Pack Essential Items
Did you know that the essential items box is going to be the first thing you’ll need to pack before a move? Of course you did, but did you know that packing those items in a clear bin will allow you to easily find everything you need amongst the sea of cardboard boxes?
Protect Dishes and Glassware
Short on funds to purchase packing supplies in Atlanta? It happens. The good news is that you may have most of what you need already. If you can’t get your hands-on bubble wrap for your fragile kitchenware, then you should wrap them in your clothes! Wrapping your kitchen items in T-Shirts, Sweaters, socks and pants can keep your dishes safe without breaking the bank.
Invest in Sandwich Bags
When disassembling furniture for a move, you’re going to end up with several screws, nails and bolts to store until you can reassemble everything in your new home. Sandwich bags are a great way to keep track of these small items. As one of the most underrated packing supplies you can use in a move, simply place the loose objects in the bag, label it and tape it to a piece of the furniture. This will save you from stressing about it later.
Photograph Your Electronic Connections
Not everyone is tech savvy which is why we highly suggest taking a photo of the wire hookups on your electronics. Connecting the T.V. or desktop computer can be a pain if you’re not sure what you’re doing. Before you disconnect everything, take a snapshot of the cables so that you can put things in place much faster when you move in.
Lighten the Load
If you’re moving bedroom sets, don’t forget to empty the drawers of clothing and any other items inside. This can reduce the weight of the furniture by half and make it much easier to lift. The same goes for any living room or bathroom furniture with drawers or additional storage. Clean them out and save your back some strain from the lift!
