General Packing Tips for Moving

Packing all your belongings is one of the most stressful parts of moving. Fortunately, packing can also allow you to get rid of the clutter to help make life in your new home simpler and more streamlined.

The best way to get started packing is to first gather all of the moving supplies you’ll need, such as boxes, packing tape bubble wrap, etc. and then pack one room at a time. At Gardner Moving, we’ve put together some general moving guidelines to help make packing easier.

Start by Purging Clutter

Before you begin packing, one of the most important things to do is get rid of the items you no longer need. This will save you the hassle of packing, moving, and unpacking them. This will help to lighten up you’re the overall moving burden and will also make transitioning into your new home easier.
Label Boxes by Room and Contents
This tip will help keep you organized rather than scrambling to find your items when it comes time to unpack. Make sure you write legibly and clearly label all boxes by the room they belong in and by their contents.

Pack Similar Items Together

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, begin packing by room. To elaborate further on that point, you want to put like items in the boxes together. Start with a padding layer and then place the heavier items in the box first, stacking the lighter items on top.

Pack the Essentials

Pack a bag or a box full of the essentials that you can keep handy throughout the move. This box should include items such as:

  • Screwdrivers
  • Hammers
  • Snacks
  • Drinks
  • Change of clothes
  • Toothbrushes
  • Paper plates and plastic utensils
  • Cups
  • First aid kit
  • Medications
  • Children’s favorite toys
  • Pet supplies
  • Etc.

This will help to keep things going smoothly for you and your family so you can focus on the move rather than having to run to the store or search through box after box for the essentials.

Hire Professional Movers

Another great way to take the stress out of moving day is to put your move in the hands of trained professional movers, like Gardner Moving. You won’t have to worry about driving a big moving truck, carrying heavy boxes up the stairs, or navigating heavy furniture up the stairs, risking damage to your new home.

We can safely move transport your items and place them in your home to help provide you with a stress-free moving experience that you can rely on.
