To pack your house correctly and efficiently, you should start with purchasing durable packing supplies. The way you pack your belongings is going to set the tone for the rest of your move. If you pack everything in a hurry and don’t even remember what you are putting where, you’ll have the biggest headache when you go to unpack everything. Start with purchasing or finding free moving boxes. You can purchase boxes from All My Sons Moving & Storage, or they come included with our full packing services. You want to make sure you get them in a variety of sizes, so that you can ensure your belongings will be safe during transit. Next, you need the proper padding. Bubble wrap and packing peanuts are some of the best and easiest packing products to use. Moving blankets and furniture pads are the best packing products to use for your furniture. Finally, you need strong packing tape to hold everything together and to ensure protection during transit.
Packing Your Kitchen
When it comes to packing up your refrigerator, you want to get rid of all your food a couple of days or weeks before the scheduled moving day. You should defrost it at least 48 hours before moving day. You can pack your plates and bowls together in the same box, and wrap them individually with the packing paper or bubble wrap. If you have a sectioned box, you should use this for your glasses. Our St. Louis packing company suggests that you remove any sharp blades from small appliances before putting them in boxes, to keep anything from getting damaged.
Packing Your Living Room
The next room on your packing schedule should be the living room. you should remove any legs to couches and chairs and wrap them in moving blankets. If you have the original packaging for your electronics you should try to pack them in that. If not, you should wrap them in moving blankets or bubble wrap and fit them in the proper sized boxes. Any TV stands or shelves that have glass, should have the glass taken out and wrapped in blankets.
Packing Your Bedroom
We suggest that the last room on your packing checklist should be your bedroom. You should break down all the beds, and put mattresses in mattress bags. You can put the hardware in plastic storage bags, and attach them to the headboards with tape. You can pack the pillows and blankets in the dresser drawers, or you can put them in large, labeled moving boxes.
