5 Packing Tips From Expert Movers, Puyallup, Washington

Relocating and transferring oversized items from one place to another can be stressful without the right people and equipment. To alleviate the pressure, hire a professional moving company, like Safe to Go MoversAs trusted movers servicing the greater Tacoma, WA area, we provide full-service moving assistance, including helpful packing tips leading up to the big day. 

5 Professional Packing Tips

1. Categorize

MoversBefore you start packing, scan each room and take a mental inventory of your possessions. Categorize everything in a manner that makes sense. Room by room categories are helpful, but you should categorize even further. For example, in your living room, you could break possessions into boxes of books, electronics, textiles, and decor.

2. Donate

Once you’ve decided on the appropriate categories, create a donate pile. This practice will eliminate clutter, reduce packing waste, and help you settle into a new place with only the essentials. 

3. Make a Schedule

It’s easy to procrastinate when organizing a move. To avoid packing at the last minute, stick to a schedule a few weeks out. After setting a move date with a professional moving company, start by packing decor and nonessential items first. By setting deadlines, you’ll avoid stress as moving day approaches. 

4. Invest in Boxes & Packing Supplies

While it may be tempting to use old boxes in a variety of sizes, investing in new packing supplies will make the move easier. You can rest easy knowing your boxes are sturdy and the uniform size of these boxes will make stacking them in the truck a breeze. If you’re having trouble deciding on materials, talk to our crew at Safe to Go Movers for advice. 

5. Label & Number

Once each box is packed, label the contents on each side. Be sure to note the room the box should belong in and a basic rundown of the items inside. To ensure boxes aren’t mixed up along the way, number each one as well so you can do a quick check that nothing’s been lost along the way.
