Boxes and Moving Supplies in Scarborough
here’s what you should know before you start packing
Whether you’re moving to your new home, you’re packing for storage, or both, there’s one thing that everyone who has ever contemplated getting a new place can agree on:
Moving is incredibly hard work.
There’s always an item you’ve forgotten to buy or a box of belongings that needed to be thrown out years ago. If you’re working against an expiring lease or a possession date, the pressure only goes up from there.
What can you do to avoid these problems during your move? Is there anything you can do to work towards a more seamless move this time around?
If it looks like you’ll be packing items for moving or for storage in the near future, here’s our best advice:
The first and most important step you can take towards making your storage or moving process easier is to plan ahead. Sit down and create a top to bottom list of all the items that you’re planning to put in storage or to take with you. Once you’ve done that, figure out a rough estimate of how big your items are. This is really just to ensure that you don’t end up with boxes that are the wrong size.
Next, you should figure out what you need to buy. Ideally, your to-buy list should include staple items like your boxes and cartons. But it should also feature lesser-known items like packing paper, bubble wrap, marker pens, sealing tape, and more.
And while we’re on the subject, are you planning to store or move any furniture? If your response to that question was “Yes”, make sure you buy furniture covers! Whether you’re planning to store your furniture away for a long time or for just as long as it takes you to drive to your new place, furniture covers can help you protect your belongings.
