Packing Tips from Your Fort Lauderdale Movers

Moving by yourself can be overwhelming, but your Fort Lauderdale movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage are here to give you tips to take the stress out of moving! Follow these packing tips to have the best packing experience possible.


#1 Make a List

It’s important to make a list of everything that you want to get done. This will ease your mind while also giving you some structure for when you start to pack. You will feel less overwhelmed if you have everything all written out.


#2 Buy Supplies

To make your move go smoothly, it is essential to have the correct packing supplies in Fort Lauderdale. You are going to want boxes in a variety of shapes and sizes, packing tape, labeling supplies, protective packing material and garbage bags.


#3 Get Family and Friends

When you are packing up your whole house, you are going to need family and friends to help you out. Having your loved ones around also makes moving more fun!


#4 Get Rid of Clutter

You will feel so much better if you eliminate all of the unnecessary clutter from your house. This will make the packing, moving, and unpacking process easier overall, because you will have less stuff.


#5 Set Aside Stuff to Sell

After going through all of your belongings, you should try to sell a few of the things you do not want anymore. After deciding what you can and cannot sell, you should donate the rest.


#6 Pack Decorative Items First

You should pack up all your art and decorative items first. These pieces are not essential for everyday life. Having these items already packed will save you stress on moving day.


#7 Pack Room by Room

Packing room by room is going to maximize your time. Doing this makes both the packing and unpacking process so much more efficient. It makes packing easier because you can keep track of what you are putting in boxes and unpacking will be so much easier on you because everything will already be organized!


#8 Label Everything

The key to making your unpacking go smoothly is to label. You should label as much and as clearly as you can. Label the boxes by category and by room and do not forget to label if a box contains anything fragile.


#9 Use Small Boxes for Heavy Items

It is important to use smaller boxes for your heavier items. It will be much easier to carry and you will thank yourself later. Use the big boxes for lighter items like pillows, towels, clothing and linen.


#10 Have Fun

Packing can be stressful and overwhelming, but when you use our Fort Lauderdale movers, you can focus on the excitement that lies ahead.
