When it comes to packing up your room for a move, there are certain areas that can be particularly difficult to navigate.
When you’re beginning to pack for your move, be sure to have supplies on hand, such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap or newspaper. You also want to have large garbage bags on hand so you can declutter your items as you go through each room. You’ll want to start with the hardest room first and pack the boxes as you go. To save energy, leave the boxes in the room once they are packed up until you’re ready to take them out of the home.
You will also want to set aside a box for items that you are throwing away, donating, and selling. For the items you are keeping, make sure the boxes are clearly labeled for the room they belong in when they arrive at your new home.
With all of its small appliances, cookware, and food items, the kitchen is one of the most challenging rooms to tackle when getting ready for a move. It’s important to take into account what items will need special packing supplies such as dish boxes or bubble wrap for fragile items like glassware. Be sure to get rid of any expired food items before you begin packing so that you don’t have additional weight on your move day.
Like the kitchen, garages, and sheds often contain a variety of items that can be difficult to move. Lawnmowers, tools, bicycles, and lawn furniture all require special attention when packing up for a move. Make sure you have enough boxes for each category of item and label them accordingly. If possible, take apart any large items, such as tables or shelves, so they’re easier to transport.
With its abundance of personal-care products and toiletries, the bathroom is another area that requires extra care when packing up for a move. Don’t forget to disconnect your bathtub drainpipe before you begin packing in order to reduce potential water damage during your move day! Again, it’s important to use appropriate packing materials for items like shampoo, conditioner, and body washes.
From clothing and bedding to electronics and books, bedrooms can hold a lot of your belongings that need special attention when moving. Make sure you have enough wardrobe boxes or garment bags to ensure all of your clothes are packaged separately from other items in the room. If you’re moving with children, be sure to gather any toys into one box before starting the packing process.
Basements and attics tend to accumulate a variety of items over time, making them some of the most daunting areas of the home when it comes time to pack up. Take some time to go through any items that haven’t been used in a while and consider donating them before the big move, as this will help reduce the amount of stuff you have to pack. If possible, try to break down any bulky furniture or items so they are easier to move from the home.
