We don’t normally comprehend how complex moving is until the days are upon us and we have no other choice. Confronting this task systematically is going to make it simpler, quicker and easier. Pre-packing is the best solution to large-scale moving operations. It allows you to quickly siphon all your items collectively and organize them in the right way. Preparing to make the advance toward your new home will be far easier when you have essentially organized everything like a game of Tetris. Everything fits and makes sense.
1. Color-code similar items.
One of the most common strategies is to pack rooms separately. However, more often than not this can cause more trouble than solve it. You might think that everything will stay organized but it often doesn’t. Rather, packing items of a similar nature will keep things organized. All lighting goes in blue color-coded boxes. All of the electronics in yellow marked boxes.
All of the kitchenware goes in red marked boxes and so on. It keeps all similar items together, which can then be unpacked to different locations of the house. Rather than go through room by room, you’re adding smaller things to each room, each time you unpack a box. It speeds everything up when packing and unloading.
2. Temporary inconvenience.
It’s better to get the heavy lifting out of the way as quickly as possible. You will have to suffer from temporary inconvenience, but it will save you so much bother. Take apart your beds and wrap all the pieces in cloth or cling-wrap to prevent scratch marks on the wood. Keep the nuts and screws in pouches and sellotape them onto the bed bars.
You will have to sleep on the floor a few days but if you time this correctly, it won’t be for more than a few days. Get your sofa ready in a similar manner. Wrap the frame and cushions up, so you’re ready to move the heaviest items first. You will have to sit on the floor or a barstool if you have one, but you will be ready to get going as soon as the truck pulls up.
3. A personalized truck.
Moving companies are adapting to the needs of the consumer. And having your items ruffled and damaged on the journey to the new house is no longer just part and parcel of moving. These movers offer to uniquely personalize their trucks to the kinds of items you own. High-quality fragile items can neatly ride with harder more robust items without knocking into each other. They use furniture pads, hardwood floor runners, door jamb covers and straps to hold everything in place. This prevents items from becoming loose even on bumpy roads.
Get ready well in advance of moving day by pre-packing all of your items. Keep similar items together so you can unload far quicker without having to wait for each room to be given all its boxes.
