1. Lessen the moving load – since moving is about new beginnings then maybe you should get rid of your older unneeded items. When you are packing you should compile three different piles, one of things to keep, one to throw away and one to donate.
Once the piles are ready pack only the items that are in the “to keep” pile. This may reduce the amount of items that you will transport which will ease the entire relocating process.
2. Packing tools – many people make the common mistake of thinking that a couple of boxes are enough to pack their items. However there are other packing tools that you would need to pack your belongings.
For instance you will need bubble wrap and shredded paper to create an extra protective layer for your fragile items. Also you will need labelling stickers and markets to mark the content of each box.
3. Packing the clothes – clothes usually take a lot of space. However there is a technique which can facilitate their efficient packing. This method is used by soldiers who instead of folding their clothes roll them. It may not be the best way to transport clothes but it will save you valuable space in the moving van. This method can also be used with towels, beddings, curtains and etc.
4. Get rid of the paper – many people don’t know how heavy paper can be. This is why you should make a digital copy of your paperwork instead. By doing this you will have less to lift, carry and move. The same applies to your books and magazines. If you can put them on a hard copy, do it. It will save you a lot of space, efforts and time.
If all this seems too complicated for you then you can hire a company that offers packing solutions. In terms of packing solutions most moving firms in the area work at very affordable prices.
