Pro Packing Tip: 3 Ways to Label Boxes When You Move, Cincinnati, Ohio

Moving can be a stressful event, but there are little things you can do to make the process less hectic. Labeling your boxes appropriately is a smart and sensible packing tip that will also help immensely when you arrive at your new destination.

There’s a fine art to labeling boxes when you’re moving out. Sure, you could scribble each one with a simple descriptor like “sweaters” or “dishes.” If the goal, however, is to be as organized as possible, it may help to take these extra steps in addition to jotting down the contents of the box:

  • packing tipsAssign a Specific Color: Give the boxes for each room in your home their own marker color. This makes it easier to sort boxes that would otherwise just be miscellaneous cardboard contraptions with black marker etched on them. The kitchen could be blue, for example, and the living room red. Give bedrooms separate colors, too.
  • Include a Number: Imagine you packed a total of 10 boxes for all of the possessions in your master bedroom. Label each one accordingly — “1 of 10,” “2 of 10,” etc. This way, you’ll immediately know if one of the boxes is missing.
  • Make Instructions Clear: Experienced movers know one of the best packing tips is to prioritize boxes in order of importance. Make a clear note on those that should be opened first (a simple “open first” works). It’s also important to indicate whether anything inside is delicate or breakable. Writing “fragile” in capital letters ensures everyone will see it.

Between purchasing moving supplies, hiring a moving truck, and making sure you have protective furniture pads, it’s understandably easy to get caught up in the stress of packing. Ease the moving out with packing tips that simplify the entire move from start to finish — you’ll never label your boxes the same way again!
