We are continuing our series on packing tips to help your move go smooth. There are several strategies movers and packers take to ensure your belongings are organized and stay safe. Our previous article discussed the importance of utilizing wardrobe boxes and considering the option of leaving items in drawers and tightly shrink wrapping them for the move. Today, we will look at two more packing strategies to consider.
Utilize Linens, Towels, Blankets, etc. to Keep Items From Breaking
Linens, towels, blankets, etc. make excellent padding. Fragile and breakable items can be wrapped and cushioned by them to keep them secure and protected. You’re moving them anyway so why not put them to good use!
Implement a Color Code System
Implementing a color code system will save you significant time when unpacking. Simply purchase some colored stickers and assign each room a color. When your movers and packers unload the truck, ask them to place boxes in their corresponding room. Color coding makes it so much easier to identify where the box goes vs. having it handwritten.
