There are some packing tips that you always forget because you are too busy complicating things. The most effective method of packing is taking things slowly at the right pace. There is no need to expedite the packing for instance, hence, the need for planning. Be sure that you follow your set schedule and in moving, time is always important.
At this crucial point, you can't afford to waste your money, time, and effort so you need to be specific with everything you do.
When placing your things inside the box, make sure that the box is not too heavy. Even if the box is still not full yet the weight can no longer be handled by the box, place some bubble wraps or newspaper to fill up the space and then seal it.
But for the record, there are special boxes which you may need in packing fragile or highly valuable items.
You need to be protective of your things. Your valuables should be packed separately and as much as possible, they should be transported with you. And finally, to be more certain, document your packing by taking photos or recording the moving process so that you will have something to rely on in case of losses.
