Once you’ve hired local movers for your relocation, the next thing you need to do is to start packing. It’s often a stressful process, and you may not know which items to tackle first.
Here are items to prioritize packing for your move.
Items in Storage
Items in a storage unit, garage or a walk-in closet are the easiest ones to pack because most of them are already in boxes. Make sure to go all through your stuff, and dispose of what you don’t want or need. It’s better if you can combine items into fewer boxes.
Like items in storage, they are mostly already inside boxes. You may not need these articles of clothing for the next few months so you can get them out of the way first. This way, you’ll have more energy to pack more difficult rooms.
You’re unlikely to host dinner parties during your move, making china the ideal item to pack first. Label the boxes as fragile so your movers are aware that the items inside are breakables. Consider packing your other dishes and kitchenware you rarely use along with your china.
Artwork, Wall Decor and Picture Frames
It’s easy to forget to remove decorations during your moving day. Pack wall decor and picture frames first so you won’t leave them out when the move-out day comes.
Pack your collectibles, souvenirs or any knickknacks first when moving. These small pieces scattered around your home can be overwhelming to pack at the last minute.
