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!
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!
- 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.
- 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!
