Avoid These 8 Packing Mistakes
Pensacola Relocation Services
Moving is not easy task. Knowing that you will need to pack your entire life into boxes can be a challenging and overwhelming job. It’s no wonder that some people procrastinate and postpone until the last minute! But don’t fear, there is a system that will help you avoid mistakes when preparing for your move.
A little planning and organization goes a long way. Here are a few tips to make your packing experience a breeze:
Plan ahead! Do not wait till the last minute to start your packing.
Start an inventory and get rid of the unwanted items. If you haven’t used something in over a year, discard it. Once you have decided on the items you wish to keep, organize them in packing materials room by room.
Buying packing supplies can get expensive. If you are on a tight budget, stop by your local grocery stores and ask them to give you the discarded and undamaged cardboard boxes. You can also enlist in Pensacola packing services and supplies.
Start the moving process early and recruit your family or friends to help you out – you don’t have to have the entire burden to yourself. You can also opt for full-service movers in Pensacola to take the weight off your shoulders, as well! Remember to start with the things you don’t use on a daily basis and aim at packing a box or two every day.
Do not overfill boxes. It will be unsafe for anyone to pick up boxes that are too heavy and/or not sealed correctly.
Mark and label your boxes. If you do not have a label-maker, a marker will do the job. Fragile items should be marked on the boxes as such. Buy extra bubble wrap, padding, or use towels to wrap and protect said fragile items.
Pack and carry any important items that you can’t be without, such as medications, toiletries, and other essentials you will need upon arrival at your new home.
Do not pack any type of hazardous materials and/or flammables, such as household paint. These should be discarded before the move.
