Packing and Moving in a Hurry
Between family matters, job changes, health, money, and ten thousand other factors, life throws a lot of curveballs at you. Regardless of the reason, you may find yourself in a situation where you need to move fast. Everyone knows moving takes forever – right? Not necessarily. All My Sons Moving & Storage has a team of fast movers in Knoxville to get your move done quick, and correctly.
When you find yourself needing to move fast, use these tips from our Knoxville moving company for the best results:
GET RID OF STUFF. This is the golden rule of fast packing. There’s not a lot of time to go through each old birthday card, Halloween costume, and expired can in the cabinet. If you haven’t used it in a year and it doesn’t hold sentimental value to you, THROW IT AWAY! If the type of clothing doesn’t fit you, or doesn’t suit the climate of your new environment, throw it out or donate it! Create 3 piles: keep, donate, toss.
GET PACKING SUPPLIES. All My Sons in Knoxville can help with that. Let us provide you with high quality packing materials, like boxes, packing paper, pads, tape, labels, and more. Trust us, we have everything you could possibly need to get the job done quick. Moving fine china or a treasured antique? We have specialty boxes that can keep your items safe from damage.
ONE ROOM AT A TIME. Don’t overwhelm yourself by running around your house trying to pack stuff from various rooms at once. Tackle one room at a time, leaving the bathroom and kitchen last. Pack up the stuff you use the least first. Save your most used items for last. Keep a few outfits and your toiletries on hand.
USE PACKING TRICKS. Without time on your side, you may have to use some packing techniques you’ve never thought of before. Don’t spend hours taking each item of clothing off the hanger then neatly folding it into a box. Place a garbage bag around 20 or so shirts and coats, then tie the bag around the hangers to keep them together. Not only is this the quickest way to pack clothes, but unpacking your clothes will be a breeze in your new home. Another packing trick you can use is to distinguish the contents of the boxes by labels on the box. This helps for organizational purposes.
