3 Helpful Packing Tips for an Efficient Move, Rochester, New York

Moving out of your home means dealing with a hundred moving pieces. Between packing up all of your valuable items and making sure that the family is comfortable for the trip, you can easily become distracted and disorganized, slowing down the process. Luckily, with the help of your local moving company and a bit of expert insight, you can make moving quicker, easier, and more efficient.

Make Moving a Breeze With the Following Packing Tips 

1. Make Use of Storage

Gathering everything from your current home and packing it into a truck can mean a tight squeeze. Rather than wasting time trying to rearrange the contents of the moving truck or deciding what items you are willing to leave behind, why not consider temporary storage? Choose a few things that you won’t need at the new house right away, like an old box of collectibles or a couch that goes unused, and keep them safely in a storage unit until you’re ready to move them into the new home.

2. Set Aside Valuables 

movingLet your movers know what you’d like them to handle ahead of time. Fragile or breakable items and heavy furniture can be better transported by those who have the experience and equipment to move them safely. Setting aside these special-care items ahead of time will ensure they are not missed by the movers and that they arrive at your new space in perfect condition. 

3. Label Boxes

One of the most effective ways to speed up the unpacking process is to label all of the boxes thoroughly. Before you pack anything, use color-coded pens or tabs to mark each box according to the room it belongs to. Start with larger rooms, like the kitchen or living room, and make sure to make a list of each item that goes into the box, which you can later tape on top. Once you’ve completed larger rooms you can then move on to bedrooms and bathrooms, which are known to have a larger number of small items.
