Moving can be so much more than a hassle. While going to live in a new city or new home is often exciting, the physical act of moving is time-consuming and difficult. It also requires a considerable amount of planning. Simply tossing objects into boxes is a good way to damage your valuables while increasing the number of boxes you actually need for the job. So, whether you don’t have time to pack, need packing assistance or are just looking for a few tricks of the trade, Winter Moving & Storage has you covered.
Home Packing Tips
Looking to get some of the packing started yourself? Here are a few tips to follow. First, always mark down on the box what room the objects go to. That will really help when unpacking. This way, instead of having a giant stack of boxes in the living room, you can take the guesswork out of it and move boxes to the necessary rooms. Using color-coded, easy-to-view stickers (or packing tape) can help, since it instantly makes the box recognizable.
One of the biggest problems people run into is making boxes too heavy. This causes a few different problems. First, the bottom of the box is more likely to rip open. Additionally, it becomes difficult to move the box and increases your risk of an injury. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can avoid this. Take, for example, a box of books. It’s easy to pack, but when you go to pick it up, it’s incredibly heavy. Instead, it is better to pack a box half of books (or other, similar objects) and half with clothing and blankets. It takes up the same amount of room, but it helps spread the weight around.
Perhaps you just don’t have the time to pack, or you’d rather turn to professionals to pack. Whatever the reason, if you need pros to help out, Winter Moving & Storage is here for you. Our experienced team of packers knows how to properly pack boxes and protect all of your valuables. This way, whether you’re moving an entertainment system or fine china, everything is in good hands.
Packing the Truck
Packing and loading a truck matters. It’s more than just tossing boxes on or playing a game of Tetris to see what can fit where. You need to pack a truck with several things in mind. First, weight distribution is important, especially if you’re using your own rental moving truck. Too much weight either at the front or the rear of the truck can lead to undesired shifts while in transit. Plus, there are certain items you’ll likely want access to when you first arrive at your new home. So, even if you intend on unpacking the truck yourself, Winter Moving & Storage can properly pack it up to ensure that it’s ready for your arrival.
