In our last post, we discussed some tips to help your packing progress with efficiency and simplicity. But it’s important to know how to handle and pack all of your belongings properly after hiring movers in Lake Oswego. Here’s part two of our guide that will explore some more quick tips for packing your belongings properly before your big move.
Designate a ‘Packing’ Room
When packing items from many rooms, it usually helps to have a designated packing room in which to keep your moving supplies and packing-related materials. This helps to keep clutter out of the way, and keeping your boxes all in one place helps you to know what you’ve already packed, provided the boxes are labeled.
“Chose a little-used room or corner of your house to serve as the packing station … Momentum is key. Keep a stash of good thick markers, packing tape, and packing materials such as bubble wrap, popcorn or unprinted newsprint there,” writes Marni Jameson on The Denver Post.
Arrange for a Donation Pickup
If you have many belongings you wish to donate, consider arranging for a donation pickup, which is often free of charge. There are many donation services that offer free pickups for those who are willing to give, and arranging for a pickup at the right time can help save you the trouble of dropping off your belongings yourself.
As mentioned, failing to label your boxes or storage containers with clearly visible and descriptive titles can cause a mess of chaos when it’s time to unpack. Save yourself the trouble and frustration by taking this simple step once each container gets full. In addition to labeling the category, don’t hesitate to write as many details as you want about the specific contents of the boxes. This way, if you’re looking for a specific item once you arrive at your new home, it’ll likely be much easier to find.
