Impress Your Movers by Following These 4 Box-Packing Tips , Branson, Missouri

A lot of planning goes into moving, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways of upping your efficiency and cutting back on the anxiety. Proper packing techniques not only make the move more efficient but also reduce the hassle of unpacking and make the job smoother for the movers. Affordable Moving Services is well-acquainted with all elements of moving and is ready to assist residents of Branson, MO, in optimizing box packing.

Even though there always seems to be more to pack than you think, there are many simple tips you can follow to maximize your space during a move. Here are four packing techniques to remember the next time you’re filling up moving boxes:

  • moversClothes: While your first instinct may be to fold and stack your clothes in boxes, you’ll waste a significant amount of space doing so. Instead, tightly roll each item of clothing and arrange them next to each other in the box. Keep adding layers, but save some space at the top of the box for bulkier pieces like winter coats.
  • Plan & Layer: Even if you have the assistance of movers, packing boxes shouldn’t be a spur-of-the-moment task. Plan ahead so you can separate items by weight, placing the heavier ones on the bottom and the lighter ones on the top.
  • Books: Books are heavy, but you can maximize your space when it comes to packing them. Pack books so their spines are facing upward, adding another layer on top of them, if possible.
  • Don’t Seal Until You’re Done: Try not to seal any boxes until everything is in its place. You may find certain items fit better together than in their current box, and setting the tape aside until you’re completely packed will save you headaches in the long run.

By following these simple rules, you’ll pack more efficiently and cut back on the stress of moving. Another excellent way to reduce stress is by hiring reputable movers. Affordable Moving Services has a crew experienced in residential, commercial, and long-distance moves, along with secure storage facilities.
