Remember that you are not only the one who is relocating therefore if you want to pick the right movers for yourself then you should start the process of booking movers earlier. If you leave the job at the end moment then higher are the chances that you need to compromise and will not get the movers according to your needs. Also, they will not be interested to give you deals and discounts because you will have a lesser number of options to choose from.

Have an “open first” box 

It allows you to put everything in a separate box that you need to stay there in your new home for the first night. You should take this box along with you in your car and ensure that it does not get lost during all the chaos of the moving process. Pack items like one or two pairs of clothing items, night suit, shampoo, soap, scissors, toilet paper, paper towel, mattress, and other items as per your requirement.

Packing is the most time-consuming part of the moving process. To do it effectively and efficiently in less duration, you need to use hacks that will save your time.

Leave the clothes onto the hangers as it is and then wrap up them in large garbage bags for transportation safely.

You can use several clothing items like linens, towels, and soft items to pack breakable items such as glasses, perfumes, and so on. These can provide cushioning for fragile items and keep these items completely safe and secure. To transport knives with safety, you should use a dishtowel.

You should always use plastic wrap around the liquid things which can spill out to save these from pouring out.

Before you close boxes, make sure you take pictures of the box’s contents. While in a shot, you won’t be able to capture all the items present in the box but it will give you a general idea of what is present inside the boxes.

Don’t label the boxes on the top, you should label boxes at all the sides so that during loading and stacking up of boxes, movers can get to know about the contents and can handle the box with care.

When buying cardboard boxes, it is recommended you buy small and sturdy boxes. If possible then you can also get them for free from local shops. If you use big boxes then it will become awkward for a person to lift and load them.

For electronic items, use the original boxes for the packing.
