Here are 5 tips for a quick transition to your new home:
Pack items by room and properly label the boxes. For example, toiletries, towels, and shower curtains could go together in a box labeled “Toilet area”. When you get to your new home, unpacking will be easy and less cumbersome. Have the right tools on hand to help you move items from the rooms to the vehicle. A few tools you will need are:
- An upright utility dolly – you can put a lot of boxes and bags in stacks
- Furniture sliders – they make it easier to move heavy and large items
- Ropes – to pull heavy items
These tools will not only make moving faster but they will also put an ease on your back. No more heavy lifting!
Use clear jumbo bags to transport clothing and linen so you can see the contents in them. Or, you could bag clothing by type of by the owner and include the room they will be going to. Use old newspapers to secure your glasses and other glassware from the kitchen. Box your pots and pans in sets. Put utensils together so that when you unwrap them in your new home, it will be easy to store them away. Place stuffed toys and soft items in large clear bags. They should be packed on top of the heavier items in order to get enough space for other stuff.
