So if you are moving abroad, packing for storage, or have many valuable items, it will be easier to use our professional service. You can decide to pack your belongings yourself, however, and we have thus compiled this list of packing tips to help you organize your move more efficiently.
You will need lots of packing supplies. No matter how small your house might seem, you will probably need more supplies, and boxes than you would think. You can buy a wide range of packing supplies from Intime Freight & Cargo Services Ltd, or get boxes from local shops.
Use strong and sturdy boxes of different sizes. Get Bubble Wrap and Newspapers to wrap fragile items. Tape, scissors, and a marking pen will be crucial, while wardrobe boxes and mattress bags are also useful.
Keep track of what you are putting in each box. This way you'll know right away where you can find anything while unpacking. This might seem unnecessary after 5 boxes packed, but once you've packed up the whole house, the pile of packed boxes with all your belongings will seem much more daunting, and a detailed list will be very handy.
A single packing box should ideally contain similar items. Try to fill a box with items from one single room, and pack one room at a time. Think about your new home, and pack accordingly. It is also crucial to label every box very clearly.
Try to pack heavier items, books, canned food for example in smaller boxes, and lighter items in bigger boxes. Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one box.
Heavier items should always be placed at the bottom and lighter items on top to prevent damage. Use paper and bubble wrap – wrap fragile and valuable items thoroughly, and wrap everything individually. Fill all boxes, but do not overfill. Cartons that are under filled can crush when another box is placed on top. Close every carton and seal with tape to avoid damage. Don't forget to label each box.
Every person should pack a box with the items they'll need right away in the new house. Also prepare a box with general essential items, like snacks, cleaning supplies, bed sheets that you will need right away. This box should be loaded last and unloaded first.
Do not pack official documents, passports, driving licenses, birth certificates, financial documents, cash and jewellery. Keep these items with you, as they are not easily replaceable, if at all.
Hazardous, flammable, and explosive materials should never be packed as it is dangerous and illegal for movers to transport them. Dispose of these safely in all cases. Perishable items, such as plants and perishable food should not be moved either.
One of the most stressful activities that you will ever undertake is moving. Alongside starting a new job, getting married or welcoming a child into the family, moving is the most significant experiences in life. Long-distance move robs you of the friendships that you have taken such great care to build and nourish. Family members may be left behind -and it will suddenly require a lot of planning and forethought to keep what were once easy going relationships intact. Moving also tends to wreak havoc with the fond memories that you have attached to your home and its surroundings.
You may have been in love with the way the light hit the wall of your breakfast nook- but now you find yourself in an apartment with no nook and no morning sun. You won’t know the neighbours, you’ll still have to figure out how to get to where you need to go using public transport and you may even be a bit flummoxed by the set up of your local grocery store.
A seasoned removals and relocation company with many years in the business knows that moving is not everyone’s cup of tea and that for many; it’s an experience that they would happily do without. Yet did you know that with the right mover you can actually plan your move and ensure that your personal belongings will be awaiting you at the other end-and so have something to which to look forward? This is the kind of business relationship that can make the butterflies of moving day flatter with excitement rather than fear.
If you use the right moving company, moving will not be the big deal that it seemed at the outset. Sure, the apartment will still be new- but so will be the experiences that you will have in it. Just think; you have the whole new opportunity to shake up you home furnishings and arrange them in completely new patters; your new neighbours may be friends whom you simply haven’t yet met; and exploring your new area may very well be an exciting adventure.
Moreover, when you contract with the company, and have your goods and personal effects shipped ahead of you, the process of moving becomes as simple as taking a carry-on bag onto a plane, train or ship.
All of the heavy listing is done at the target destination and, if you have hired the right company, all of that lifting will be done for you. Suddenly, moving day is nothing to be dreaded- but rather a journey that opens up the door to a whole new set of exhilarating experiences.
So, are you starting to be ready to embrace your relocation? Can you catch a glimpse of the rewarding experience that it promises to be and the power that you have to make it a relatively stress-free venture? What’s holding you back? The time is now and the new life ahead awaits you- so hang on for the ride and enjoy the experience. Two months from now you’ll wonder whatever made you think that this could possibly be anything but a positive turn of events in your life!
