Getting Started with Packing
People don’t move everyday (except for professional movers ), and while you’re in a hurry to organize your things and get them in the right places, the care you take in packing may be lacking. Here are some moving packing tips that can help you keep up the speed while treating your items with care.
First, have plenty of supplies. Estimate how many moving boxes you will need and in what sizes and shapes. Purchase plenty of packing tape, have scissors, a box cutter, or a tape gun handy for cutting it. Also, a dark marker will help label boxes-- you can also use a different colored label for each room. Bubble wrap, newspaper, or packing tissue is also a necessity to prevent fragile items from breaking and to pack each box tightly.
Keep important papers and fragile, valuable items separately. You could put them in a fire safe or in a safe deposit box. These should come with you on the day of the move; do not leave them with the moving company for liability reasons.
Your "last in, first out" box should be filled with things you will want right away when you get to your new destination. Sheets for the bed, towel, a telephone, and some pens and paper for example.
