The process of relocation is not simple. You need to plan the packing and moving procedure according to the rooms and their stuff. For instance, the kind of items found in kids’ rooms will be different from those in adults’ rooms. Therefore, the smart thing to do would be to pack things accordingly.
Sort and Select – One of the most basic and preliminary steps to be taken while starting with the packing process is sort and select. Separate the similar things which can be packed together and keep them on one side. For instance, books, frames, files, desk utilities, pictures, and magazines can be clubbed together in one box. Packing similar things together will minimize the risk of damage. It will also save the confusion which might occur when you finally start unpacking. Finding important or little things will become a tiring task. Don’t forget to separate valuables such as jewelry in one box and keep it with yourself.
Size of the Boxes – Determine the different sizes for the boxes that you want. It will depend on the number of things which are to be packed. Electronics will need special packing, and bigger equipment might take up the whole box. Lamps and bulbs can be packed with clothes, as they will need extra cushioned layer for shock absorption. You can also use garbage bags to pack linen.
Labeling – Another important and obvious thing to be done is labeling. It is done to ensure that the fragile things are handled with care. Mishandling or misplacement of the boxes can cause damage to the electronics, glasses, crockery, dresser, etc. Therefore, make sure that you have labeled boxes for the things to be taken care of. Also, mark the boxes according to the rooms, so that when the unpacking starts, the process is completed with ease.
