There are a lot of moving companies that offer packing all items. However, packing can also be done by yourself and this is not so complicated if you know the technique and definitely, saves a lot of money. Here are some packing and moving tips.
Boxes (either cardboard or plastic) and plastic bags of good size are essential for any move. You will also need newsprint, packaging bubble, and foam rubber, adhesive tape, a marker and labels to mark the boxes.
Upon getting the boxes, select the most solid and not too large, so that the loading will be much easier. Make sure to reinforce the base of the boxes across two strips of adhesive tape.
In large plastic bags, you can store the clothing and bedding. Avoid sharp or heavy objects, and make sure place them in appropriate boxes.
Another option to pack clothes are suitcases, it will be easier to carry, but you need to make sure that they are strong enough.
Clearly, label boxes which contain fragile objects to be handled with care. You should indicate what side of the box that has to be always on top.
Fill the boxes so that objects will not bounce inside. You should put the heavier things and put the smaller ones on the edge of the box.
For heavier items, such as books, use small boxes that can be transported or moved easily.
The dishes have to be packed separately and carefully. Dishes, glasses and cups with bubble wrap must be placed inside the box vertically, then fill the gaps with newspaper. Label with the word “fragile” in several faces of the box.
Do not remove the protective sheaths until a furniture is placed in its proper place.
Never use adhesive tape directly on the furniture. Electronic devices are better to move them wrapped in blankets.
During the unpacking, you should instruct your moving company where to put your items. Some companies offer a complete service that includes unpacking and assembling the furniture again. You can ask for their assistance and this makes your unpacking less stressful.
