before you start packing
Moving can be difficult in the best of times.
When you’re not marking boxes and trying to make sure you’ll remember where you put things, you’re working overtime to ensure that your valuables will be transported safely. When you have all of those concerns on your plate, the last thing you want is to be finding out in the middle of your packing that you’ll need more boxes or that the kitchenware might break unless you can find some bubble wrap on short notice.
In our multi-decade experience, having a fast and efficient moving experience ultimately comes down to having a solid plan in place.
As you start mapping out the logistics of your move, it’s a great idea to sit down and make a list of all the items you are planning to store along with their approximate sizes. That way you can avoid being in a situation where your boxes are too small for the items you’re trying to pack.
Then, once that’s out of the way, you need to put together your shopping list. For most people who are moving, this list should include plenty of sturdy packing boxes and cartons. But alongside those major, big-ticket items, it’s also important to pick up “moving accessories” or items that can help you pack more efficiently like packing paper, sealing tape, and marker pens. If you’ve got a couch or a dining room table that you’re transporting, remember to think about whether you need furniture covers!
