Moving can be very stressful, which is why we do everything we can, here at Rare Movers, to ease the stress of all our moving clients. One way we can ease the tension come moving day, is by giving expert advice on packing; we’ve been moving a long time, and we know all there is to know about moving and packing.
First thing’s first, start packing up the items you don’t need well in advance to moving day; for example, since it’s summer, pack up your winter clothes, coats, gloves, shovels, etc. Pack up books, and old files you don’t really need at the exact moment.
Next, organize what you pack by the room they belong to; so you should start with spare rooms, and work your way up to the more important rooms like your bedroom, kitchen and living room. After you finish packing up the spare room, you can start to fill that room up with boxes once you started packing up the other rooms; that way there aren’t boxes lying around for everyone to see for weeks on end. It will also help keep your house from cluttering up with boxes.
On the top and side of the box, write a list of the contents that are in the box; what the products are and which room they belong to. The more descriptive these lists are, the easier the unpacking will be!
We of course will be more than happy to pack your belongings for you; if you are taking advantage of our full service packing services, make sure you leave a box aside, with the essentials that will hold up through your last days at the old house, and the first few days at the new house. Every member of your family should have their own travel products; clothes, toiletries, food, prescriptions, etc.
You should also put a side a box filled with blankets, linens, towels, toilet paper, soap, silverware, plates, cups, and maybe some all purpose cooking pots. Also, think about keeping a toolkit or toolbox handy, just in case you have to put furniture together at the new place.
Hope these packing tips help! As we said earlier, you can take full advantage of Rare Movers full packing services. For more information, or for a free estimate on our moving services, please give Rare Movers a call at 617-825-7273
