What To Do Before Your Move

Get your closet organised now! Once you do, everything will be easier to pack. To prevent breakages during your move, you should pack your items in strong boxes. The size of the box you choose depends on how many items you have and their approximate size. . For example, if you have 10 suits and 5 shirts, a large box will do the trick. You should invest in some basic packing supplies too. Use paper towels to line your boxes, so that your clothes don’t get dirty or wet during transit. You’ll also need packing tape for sealing boxes and organising the contents of each one. Fill up each box to capacity.

Separate hazardous materials and put everything containing paint, chemicals or anything else that could cause a fire onto a separate pile. This will prevent your other possessions from being at risk.

Pack An Essentials Moving Home Box

Pack your essentials, things like toothbrushes, spare clothes, snacks, cooking utensils and medications in a bag that you can access with ease. A first aid kit is also recommended in the event of an emergency happening. As you get ready for your trip, add items that you might need during your first few days to this pack. That way, you’ll have everything in one place and handy on the first night. You’ll be able to unpack the rest of your clothes and other items later.  When packing for your first big house move., it’s important to pack items that are universal.
