Plan ahead

The best tip for packing? Get started early. You don’t want to get caught realizing you haven’t done enough packing leading up to move day, especially when movers are on the way. Create a plan for packing, go room-by-room, and tackle a little bit of the process day-by-day leading up to the move.

Don’t mix up items from different rooms

When you’re packing up your home, keep things organized by room. This makes it easier when you’re unpacking at your new home and figuring out where certain items will go. This goes a long way in eliminating confusion.

Keep your items protected

It’s crucial to use proper packing supplies on delicate or breakable items to keep them protected. This means using packing paper or bubble wrap to ensure breakables and electronics survive the move untouched.

Also remember, the heavier the item, the smaller the box. The last thing you want is to load a box that’s too heavy, and the bottom to break. For more detailed packing tips, click here.

Label everything

Something that might seem simple at the surface is actually one of the most important steps of packing. Be sure to accurately and clearly label each box while packing so that movers know where to place them in your new home, and you know what’s inside as you unpack.
