3 Packing Tips to Make Your Move Easier

by Davy Talley 08/05/2022

No matter the size of your home, packing everything to prepare for a move is a long process. Luckily, there are many things you can do to make it simpler and more efficient. Here are some expert packing tips for an easier move:

Prepare Your Supplies

Make sure you have supplies ready before you even start packing. This could include things like tape, packing paper and bubble wrap. Consider having multiples of the same essential tools like box cutters, scissors and markers for increased convenience. By stocking up on your supplies in advance, you avoid the risk of running out right in the middle of packing. If possible, consider getting more than you think you need--you'll probably need it.

Opt for High-Quality Boxes

Reusing old moving boxes is a great way to get your money's worth and avoid waste. However, using worn-out moving boxes can hinder your safety and productivity. Instead of relying on recycled cardboard boxes alone, find some that are specifically made for moving. These boxes are usually made of reinforced, heavy-duty cardboard and have convenient cutouts for handles. While it does require some spending, getting brand-new, high-quality moving boxes will pay you back in saved time and convenience.

Pack an Essentials Box

There are few things more frustrating than arriving at your new home and realizing you can't find something important, like your toothbrush. To avoid this issue, set aside your "essentials" and pack them separately in a box to load last. Include things like toiletries, medications, phone and device chargers and a change of clothes. One way to approach an essentials box is to pretend that you're packing for an overnight vacation--bring just enough to help you get through the first day at your new home.

Moving can be stressful and time-consuming, but with the right planning you can make the whole process simpler. Consider these tips when preparing for your next move.
