Unexpected Move

Unexpected Move

When you unexpectedly have to move, packing can be a daunting task. Here are some tips to help you pack efficiently:

  1. Prioritize essentials: First, pack the things you absolutely need, such as important documents, medication, and a change of clothes. A file storage box is a great way to keep all these items together.
  2. Declutter: Take the time to go through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer need or want. This will make packing easier and reduce the number of items you need to move.
  3. Use sturdy boxes: Invest in good quality boxes and packing materials. Stay away from free boxes from online marketplaces or local grocery stores. Moving Cart has a wide selection of boxes that will work.
  4. Label everything: Label each box clearly with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make it easier when it comes time to unpack. When purchasing a moving kit, a marker will be provided for labeling.
  5. Pack strategically: Pack heavier items at the bottom of boxes and lighter items on top. Use bubble wrap or packing paper to protect fragile items and fill gaps. Check out all the moving supplies you may need here.
  6. Don't overload boxes: Try to keep the weight of each box manageable so that it is easier to lift and move. Consider purchasing medium boxes for midweight items while using other box sizes for heavy items or light items.
  7. Enlist help: Ask friends and family members to help you pack.
