One of the most important things you’re going to do when moving is packing your goods. If you opt for the more expensive full-service moving package, moving experts will pack most of them for you, but many people opt to pack themselves to save money. This isn’t a bad thing, but it’s important that you pack your goods right to avoid anything being damaged during the move. Read on to read some tips on packing for a household move and how to make sure your goods stay in top shape.
The first thing you should do is get actual moving boxes. You can usually find them at self-storage places, as that’s usually where they’re most used. Packing items properly starts with having the proper boxes. Did you know they make special boxes for moving kitchenware such as plates and bowls and glasses? They also make special boxes for wardrobes, particularly clothing that needs to stay hung up in order to remain in top shape.
Another good tip on packing for a household move is to make sure to put like things together; in other words, don’t put books in with electronics, as your electronics are likely going to break. Make sure to pack TV’s in their own boxes (and they have special boxes for those too, along with other flat surfaces like monitors or even things like tables). As always, your goods should be properly protected via bubble wrap or plastic popcorn.
