Are you ready for your moving day? Whether your big move will be successful or not could come down to a matter of organization. If you don’t consider yourself to be especially organized this is the time to learn! There are some folks who like to make a list of box contents. For instance, box #1 has dishes, box #2 has towels, etc. With an iPad this won’t be that much of a hassle. But if you don’t want to go through that hassle then by all means label the boxes.
Speaking of boxes, you’ll want plenty. If you feel like it’s crazy to spend all that money on something you’ll be throwing away then look out for box rentals. Many moving storage companies are getting into the recycling business by offering customers plastic bins to rent instead of boxes. You pay a small fee for the bins and turn them back in when you’re finished. You might even be able to get those bins dropped off and picked up. Even with the bins it’s always good to have a few extra boxes on hand especially on moving day.
When packing a box if it is too heavy for you to lift it’s probably going to be too heavy for the movers to lift. It also runs the risk of bottoming out which means whatever you pack inside could end up broken on the street. Try to avoid using newspaper to wrap your breakable items in because that could stain those pieces. To help the movers you’ll want to label the rooms where the boxes belong. The kitchen is easy to figure out but will they know which bedroom is which? Help them out by taping a note to the door of the room that corresponds with whatever you’ve labeled the box with.
As you go through the packing process you’re probably going to be coming across a lot of items which you don’t want to bring with you into your new home. That’s why you should think about two move days. One for the actual move and one for a pre-move of your junk. This is where a company like Junk King Central Virginia can be a big help.
