How to pack boxes when moving house

Moving is considered to be one of the most challenging tasks these days. You not only need to pack your stuff correctly but also need to ensure that the things and boxes are correctly transported from one place to another. Packing things requires a professional person to do that for you so that you can quickly move from one house to another. 

Packing is the most crucial thing when you are moving. It has to be done efficiently so that the goods can be transported without damage.

You will need various types of boxes for moving house. These include small boxes, medium boxes, large removal boxes, wardrobe boxes, and heavy-duty boxes. You will also need packing tapes, bubble wraps, old newspapers, markers, and labels.

You should keep the following tips in mind while packing your stuff.

1. Always use the right kind of boxes for packing

There are dedicated packing boxes of each type of material. You should choose the right type of boxes, depending on the kind of stuff you are packing. You should never rely on used boxes or boxes that are used to pack things in supermarkets. They are not designed to carry heavy items and therefore should not be used for any such purpose.

2. Boxes should be sealed properly

Use packing tapes of reliable brands on the top, bottom, and the sides of the boxes to secure the packing properly. Also, use tape in the middle of the box where the box folds. Packing tapes reinforce the boxes and ensure that they do not break during transit.

3. The least used items should be packed first

Many people start their packing quite early. If you too are doing this, you should ensure that you are packing the least used items first. If you pack the essentials first, you will have to pull them out regularly and this will ruin all the packing you’ve done. To make things better, you should keep the frequently used items aside and pack them only in the end.

4. Keep heavy items at the bottom while packing

When you start filling the boxes, you should keep the heavier items at the bottom and then fill it up with the lighter ones. This is because putting heavier items at the top can damage the items below them. It is also challenging to lift boxes in which heavier items are packed on the top.

5. Dedicate specific boxes to each of the rooms

If packing is a challenging task, unpacking is all the more tedious. You need to make sure that while you are packing the goods, you also keep unpacking in mind. Therefore, dedicate separate boxes for each of the rooms in your house. This will make unpacking very easy for you.

While these are some of the tips you should keep in mind while packing, you should also pay attention to the way you are wrapping the items in the boxes. Use bubble wrap roll to pack them and fill in the gaps between the things using airbags.
