Packing for a Move

Preparing to pack for a move calls for preparation right from the start! In order to have a smooth pack, move, and unpack, it’s best to follow a system that will keep you organized and your items safe, allowing you to be more free of the common worries associated with moving. Below we outline a system for packing your items, offering the obvious tips like “label the tops of your boxes”, and even some words of wisdom. This article serves as a general guide to the packing process, and we provide more complementary information on other webpages about the unpacking process, our packing video section, and definitely check out the Checklist!

Preparing to pack starts with understanding what the needs are for your move. Because every move calls for vastly different plans and actions, these needs are often quite unique from individual to individual. Packing requires packing materials. The reputations of moving companies thrive on their abilities to not only provide the top of the line service, but also their abilities to provide supreme packing materials. The items that professional moving companies use in their day to day practice ensures that your items are transported from door to door as safely as possible.

Save time by placing your items inside of boxes that can be stacked and then carried or preferably, wheeled by hand trucks. The most quick and efficient moves come from those where very close attention has been paid to the organization of the packing process. Boxes should be labeled on every side, and top. Don’t worry about the bottom side that sits on the floor or on top of other boxes. As mentioned on our Packing Materials page, we suggest buying tape pre-labeled with the names of different rooms such as the kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom 1 and bedroom 2. Make sure that all of your labels are seen on the four vertical sides of the box and the top. When the top is labeled, the inevitable “fragile” boxes are most easily seen by the people picking them up. Labeling on the sides provides for quick placements into different rooms as professional movers use hand trucks (what many people call “dollies”) to move multiple boxes at once. This unloading process at the new place greatly depends on the organization of the packing process, and logistical experts like the professionals at United Moving Solutions will help you plan to take action!
