Without further ado, here are the tips to make your move organized.
Try to keep the boxes to 50 pounds or less
The biggest problem for the people in moving process run into is with books. Yes, books do weigh a lot. You will need to use small boxes for them. Otherwise, you will never be able to lift them.
Develop a system for storing small pieces or parts of bigger items
For items that have lots of pieces or have to be taken apart, such as curtain rods with all its attachments or furniture, make sure that you secure all small pieces in a plastic bag and attach securely to the item. Another option is to pack one box with all hardware and small pieces. Then, clearly label them with what item it belongs to and to where it will go.
Make a plan for putting things back together as well
That’s right. If you are taking apart the items that may be difficult to put back together, you can do several things. Make sure you have the original manual, order one or download from the manufacturer. You can also take pictures of the items as you take the items apart.
Packing when staging follows a natural progression
This means that you pack out season item first. After that, pack out less frequently used items. And so on and so on. Don’t pack anything that you don’t need or want. Or any items you think you will eventually throw out.
Think about your pets
If you have pets, make plans in advance how you will move your pets to the new residence. Of course, this will vary based on the type and number of pets you have. Make sure all of them have identifying information and/or micro chipped. And yes, having both is better. In case you are moving out of the area, locate a vet in your new area before you move.
