When It Comes to Packing, Preparation is Key

When it comes to packing, preparation is key. It seems obvious, but so many of us neglect to really think that much about our packing aside than the obvious of putting everything in boxes. Making sure that you undergo an in depth time table for packing everything up is important, as it can be the difference in having a stressful and pricy move, or a fairly easy and inexpensive relocation. What kind of thing do you need to be thinking about then? Well if you are doing a larger move, then you will not be able to just throw everything in boxes at the last minute, as you will have way too much stuff to have time to do so, but if you start packing well in advance, then you may pack things that you need to use by accident. In most moves there will be an unavoidable period of having to live out of boxes in a way, but it needn’t be very long if you are clever with your planning and pack efficiently around your life. Start early, with a good month or so, and get things going with the move.

This will give you the foresight to be able to map the whole moving process out, and get important things done like booking the removals company early. This early start will put you in a great position to start time tabling your packing process, which though it sounds hellishly boring, will mean that you can pack your home up efficiently and in a relaxed way that will not impact too much on your daily routine, and therefore not upsetting your home life until the last minute. You should think about the rooms in the house that you use the most, and the things in them that get used the most regularly. These will obviously be the kitchen and bedrooms, and perhaps the family room or lounge. With this in mind, you can start packing up extraneous rooms that get less attention a long time in advance, which will mean that they are out of the way as soon as possible.

When you have done all of these, you can move on to packing up the lesser used items in the more regularly inhabited rooms. This means books and more obscure kitchen utensils, as well as ornaments and pictures and the like. You can work out a clever schedule as to how you will be getting things packed away without having to unpack them straight away, which should help you minimize the amount it upsets your life at home. This will be especially important for the wellbeing of your kids, as they will not like the change being too drastic too quickly. When packing your things be sure to give yourself the time and materials to do it all properly as well as quickly, as otherwise you may find that you get everything done in time, but you suffer as a consequence in having damages rack up and become extremely expensive in the end. These damages will cost you loads, especially given that many companies will not insure you against items that you have packed yourself. In some instance it may be clever to invest in having a packing service thrown in to your removals service. This sort of service will mean that you can just direct them to do it all in the final couple of days before the move, meaning that you will be forced to eat take away food for a bit, but that sounds pretty nice right!?
