If you have electronics, battery operated items or items with liquid included amongst your belongings in storage, they can freeze, create condensation inside electronics or crack from expansion due to freezing. This can render some of your electronics, lawn equipment, etc. unusable. A climate controlled storage unit keeps your belongings between 50 and 80 degrees to avoid being too hot or too cold.

Our Columbus full service movers know that packing is one of the most dreaded parts of the moving process. The hassle of packing up all your belongings only to unpack them at your new home is stressful and can be overwhelming. Our team is here to help with these three simple packing tips to make the process simpler!

  1. Declutter!

Nothing is worse than packing items you know you will never use in your new home. Take a weekend to go through all your belongings and sort those that you no longer want or need. You’ll be surprised how much that can lighten your load and make packing easier. You can hold a yard sale or donate your items to charity. Decluttering will also save time and money when it comes to getting your belongings on a truck and to your new home. Less stuff means less heavy lifting!

  1. Don’t bother packing blankets and sweatshirts

Use them as fillers for boxes with fragile items. Your extra blankets and sweatshirts can serve as padding for those dishes, glassware and more that could break during transport. Save space in your suitcases and boxes this way and make your life a little easier.

  1. Don’t take your clothes off the hanger!

You heard us right- keep those clothes on the hanger. Take your garbage bags from the kitchen and use them to pack up your closet. Take a trash bag and pull it over 6-8 articles of clothing. Tie it at the top by the hook of the hangers and voila- you have transportable clothing that can go from your old closet to your new one in no time!

It happens all the time where the mere prospect of preparing for a move is stressful. This is understandable given how much work needs to be done for a move to be successful. One of the more stressful aspects of moving is the packing process. Purchasing packing supplies is challenging if you’re not used to moving. Then applying the same packing techniques that All My Sons Columbus movers use is another. However, here are some ways to making packing for a move to Columbus easier:

Get Started Early

There’s no going around it, packing is a long and tedious process. Even packing a small apartment can take days or longer to be completed. The only way to truly get through it is to do it. The sooner you begin putting things in moving boxes, the sooner it’ll be over. The absolute last thing you want is to have items unpacked when your Columbus movers arrive.

Pack One Room at a Time

There may be a mountain of work to do, but you only need to tackle it one pebble at a time. Begin packing the kitchen and work your way around your home. Don’t put items from different rooms inside the same box.

Organize Your Inventory

Keep track of what you’re packing and what you need to get rid of. Don’t bother bringing unused or unwanted items to your new home. All this does is take up valuable space in your boxes and the moving truck. Use packing labels on your moving boxes and if possible, color code them to make it easier to unpack. If you have enough time and patience, make a checklist of items so that you don’t forget anything on moving day.

Purchasing the right packing supplies in Columbus is one of the most important things to do when planning a move. It’s recommended to hire professional moving and packing services to handle the more difficult aspects of relocating, however some people choose to be a bit more hands on. If you’re one of those people who enjoy moving, then you need to be aware of the proper ways of how to pack a moving box.

The entire point of using a moving box to transport your items is to keep your belongings protected in the moving van. In order to get the most out of your moving box, line the bottom with a layer of crumpled packing paper. This ensures that the items placed inside are clean and adds a bit of protection. Each cardboard moving box serves a different purpose. For instance:

Heavier items are best suited for smaller boxes.

Medium items are ideal for medium boxes.

Lightweight items such as pillows and bedding are placed in larger boxes.

After placing your items into the moving box, secure the contents with packing peanuts and/or bubble wrap. This is ideal for electronics, glassware, or other fragile items that may become damaged from movement in the moving truck.

After filling the empty space with packing peanuts and bubble wrap, consider adding another layer of packing paper on top of the contents, although this is completely optional. Once you’ve done that, close the box and seal it with heavy duty packaging tape. Once you’ve sealed the box, be sure to label it with the contents of the box and if it’s fragile, along with which room it will be placed in.

All these packing supplies can be purchased from a local Columbus moving company. If you prefer a professional All My Sons Columbus mover do the packing for you, then speak to a representative today!


The big move is right around the corner and you’re probably wondering how you’re going to get everything done. After all, moving is a lot of work and if you don’t begin planning early, chances are you’re going to run into problems down the line. There aren’t many people who enjoy the prospect of moving, nevertheless it’s something that has to be done. Fortunately, packing doesn’t have to be the painful task that it’s viewed to be. Check out these ingenious packing hacks to make the moving process a little easier:

 

Color Code the Labels on Your Moving Boxes

One thing people forget to do is ignore putting things in order during a move. While it’s always recommended to label boxes with the contents and the room that it will ultimately go in, one cool trick to try is to use different colors on the labels to make finding boxes easier.

 

Create a Map with the Layout of Your New Home

Want to make unpacking easier? Create a blueprint of your new home so that you can visualize where everything will go before your Columbus movers arrive.

 

Wrap Fragile Items in Towels or Clothing

Want to save money on packing supplies? Look to the materials you already own. Soft towels, socks, t-shirts, sweaters, etc., are alternative packing hacks used to protect fragile items. These aren’t the packing materials that professional moving and packing services would use during a move, but they are functional in protecting electronics and glassware.

 

Use Sandwich Bags for Small/Loose Items

If you are packing things such as jewelry or other small items, consider sealing them in sandwich bags and labeling them so they don’t get lost.

If you need a relocation solution, the thought of renting a moving truck has probably come across your mind. While it may seem like a good idea to move on your own and rent a moving truck, there are certain pitfalls that you may run into. Operating a moving truck is not quite the same as driving your everyday automobile. However, there’s more to it than that. There are hidden costs and other inconveniences that can come up. Typically, your best bet is to skip the rental truck and allow All My Sons Columbus movers to handle your move.

 

Hidden Fees

 

People think that renting a moving truck is cheaper than hiring packing services in Columbus, and while at times this could be true, often it isn’t. Renting a moving truck can subject you to certain liabilities that you won’t have with professional Columbus movers. These include insurance costs, fuel, and mileage. Additionally, you will be subject to more fees if you don’t return the truck at the required time either.

 

Time Constraints

 

Rental truck companies aren’t known for being flexible with scheduling. When you reserve a moving truck, it has to be brought back to the location by the contracted time or you’ll be subject to penalties. This can become problematic if you run into any obstacles during your move. It makes it that much more important to get your household items shipped within the allotted window of time.

 

No Guarantees

 

Just because you reserve a moving truck doesn’t mean that you’ll get what you asked for. In fact, most of the time, you show up to the rental facility only to find that the truck is smaller than what you asked for an it’s an older model truck. Even worse, a truck may not be available at the time you reserved which can be a major inconvenience for you.

 

 

While getting a rental truck and moving yourself is an option, it’s always much easier to use packing services of All My Sons Moving & Storage. Contact us today and let us assist you with your next move.
