There are always new tips and tricks that make life a lot easier. For those packing the contents of their home for a move, are a few packing hacks that can make your move from Louisville a lot easier.
Remember, most home movers will offer full packing and unpacking services. This can be arranged for the whole home or just for a few rooms; it can be all up to your needs and confidence in correctly packing your possessions.
The following ideas from home movers are guaranteed to take some of the stress, frustration and anxiety out of moving day:
* Pack early – start packing as early as possible. Pack the spare room, seasonal items and those items not in use. By starting early, you can work for an hour or so and day and get most of the home packed in the weeks prior to the move.
* Eat out – the last few days before your move plan to eat out rather than cook. This allows you to pack the kitchen and not have to deal with perishable food and dirty dishes when you are already busy and getting ready to vacate the home.
*Get rid of old stuff – moving is a great time to declutter your life. Donate things that you don’t use, haven’t used or won’t use. You can also plan a garage sale or give them away to friends. The less you pack, the less you have to move and unpack.
* Use clothing as packing – if you are packing your own breakables, you can use your clothing, towels and linens to pad the bottom, sides and top of the box.
* Invest in packing peanuts – filling all the space in packed boxes of breakable or fragile items with packing peanuts will help to prevent damage.
