Easy Packing Tips for your Next Move
Whether you are hiring Small Movers in Ottawa or are making a major move there will be quite a bit of packing involved. Here are some easy packing tips to help make your next move easier:
By Room and By Person
Some people take it upon themselves to do all of the packing on their own. However if you have a family it makes sense to have each person pack their own items if they are old enough to do so. It is a good idea to split up the responsibilities for the rest of the house and focus on the rooms that are used less frequently to start the daunting task of packing. This would include your garage and basement as well as storage areas and attics. You can then toss as you go so you don’t lug boxes filled with items you haven’t used in years. You can then have each person deal with their own clothes and toys and they can toss anything they no longer need or wear. This will cut down on the amount of items you have to move. You can also provide a generous donation to your local charity with the items you no longer need or have a garage sale to help pay for your small movers in Ottawa. Mark each box clearly so you know where it goes and you don’t sell or toss something you meant to keep.
Another good tip is to think of items seasonally. Pack away the clothes you do not need based on warm or cool weather. You can also think of items such as good dishes you use for holidays and entertaining and pack these away with holiday decorations and your best linens.
Use your linens to wrap breakables such as dishes and glassware. As well if you have sheet sets specific to bed size and room take each set and place them in the matching pillow case to keep them together. You can then store them like this when you unpack for easy reference when looking for fresh sheets. Take down pictures and tape the nails and hooks to the back so you can reuse them when you arrive at your new home.
Packing will be a chore no matter how you go about it. However these tips will keep things condensed and help things go a little faster. For more information, visit http://www.gerrysmoving.ca/movers-ottawa today!
