Real These Moving Tips to Learn How to Pack Like a Pro, Cincinnati, Ohio

One of the biggest tasks involved in relocating is packing up all your items and ensuring they make it to your new home without incident. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to do that. Here, the team at Carlton Movers in Cincinnati, OH, shares their top moving tips and a few packing secrets you need to know.

Essential Moving Tips

1. Wrap Up Fragile Items

If you’re bringing fragile items with you, make sure you wrap them up securely before placing them in boxes. Carlton Movers suggests covering them in bubble wrap, newspapers, or soft packing paper beforehand and putting them in a box lined with some type of padding, like an old towel or sheet. If you’ve got delicate furniture, ask your moving team if they offer free quilted padding to keep it safe. 

2. Consider Your Timeline

3. Donate What You Don’t Need

You won’t need everything you currently have in your home. Make packing lighter and help others by donating the clothes or furniture you don’t want or no longer use. It’s better to do this beforehand so you don’t pack anything unnecessary in the boxes.
