Easy Steps to Pack and Move Fast

If you need to move multiple times in a year, you will have to figure out smarter and cheaper ways of doing it. Hiring professional services every time might work out too expensive. Here are a few easy tips you can use to pack and move fast:

Start early

Packing is a very time-consuming process, irrespective of how good you are at it. It therefore makes sense to start packing at least two to three years before the moving day. Start by packing things that you use least, such as books and china.

Sort things out and pack strategically

You need to always think of unpacking before you start packing. If you want to make life easy you will need to be very strategic in your packing process. Group the items that you would need on day one in one box or suitcase – this would include towels, sheets, change of clothes, and toiletries. Mark this box with a star or any other symbol for easy access.

Designate a room for packing

Select one of the little-used corners or rooms in your house and use it as a packing station. Stash there, all the supply that you would need, such as boxes, tapes, markers, and other packing materials, if you want to keep your momentum going while packing.

Recycle as much as possible

If you want your moving to be a greener activity, you would be better off using used boxes instead of new ones. Look for places that let people drop off good boxes so that you can pick them up and use them.

Use small boxes for heavy items

Moving large boxes is tougher than moving small ones. So if you use large boxes to put heavy stuff, you will find it very difficult to move them across. Always make it a point to put heavy items in small boxes and light stuff in large boxes. That way you don’t have to worry about the boxes breaking.

Don’t pack air

You might think it would be a good idea to empty your chests and dressers before moving. But remember – you will be wasting usable truck space. So fill up your dressers and chests with linens or stuff that are lighter.  Likewise, make it a point to fill up all your empty suitcases.

If you do some research you can find many other tips like these that can make your packing and moving easy. Try and find a Rockville chiropractor you can consult, in case you face any injuries while packing or moving. This will reduce a lot of moving stress. Safety should be your number one priority, at all times.
