Preparing for a big move? If yes, one of the best ways you can prepare to move is learning how to pack the best way you possibly can. Von Paris Baltimore Movers is here to make your move easy by providing you some great packing tips. Read now to start packing the right way for your move.
There is nothing funny about picking up a moving box full of your valuables and the bottom falls out. Becoming a skilled packer is a necessity before you start filling cardboard boxes with 80 pounds or more valuables.
There is an art to packing. The following are must know tips for packing:
Pack It Right The First Time Around
To make your moving boxes super secure, tape the seam on the bottom and run a piece of tape perpendicular to the seam. Be sure to pad the bottom of your moving boxes with newspaper and stuff the sides with extra paper to make the bottom completely solid. All items should be wrapped with paper as well.
Once the boxes are filled, tape them shut and label the sides of the boxes by content and your name.
Pack Room By Room
Next packing tip is to pack similar items together. It’s easiest to pack by room so you can unpack and fill your new rooms one by one without confusing matter. For example, bathroom items of washcloths and towels should be packed together. Not only will this keep you organized but washcloths and towels can serve as items to prevent your stuff from moving around inside your boxes.
Keep Items In Drawers
If you have drawers, take them out of your chests and desks with items in them to help you save on boxes. Drawers make for great storage if you stretch tape across the top of the drawer to hold all the components in place.
