The first thing to decide before moving is, of course, packaging materials. Poor quality or inappropriate packaging specifications will negate all your further efforts.
The most universal type of packaging is specialized packing boxes made of dense multilayer corrugated cardboard, with detailed fields for marking.
An important point — provide materials for different things. In addition to standard packing boxes of various sizes and adhesive tape, stretch film, wardrobe boxes for transporting clothes on a coat hanger, air bubble film, protective profiles and corners may be required.
If you are having difficulty calculating the required amount of packaging, just contact our managers.
labeling will help much as possible to facilitate the process of unpacking housegoods in a new house.
If the packing boxes you purchased do not have special fields for marking, then do not be too lazy to put marks on your own. The more you sign the packing box, the more convenient it will be to find the necessary things. Indicate the room / room from which these things were collected; piece of furniture (things from a chest of drawers, a closet or a bedside table, for example), type of things (clothes, dishes, documents) and to which family members belong.
Additionally, for clarity, you can use different colors of tape or markers, giving each room its own color. So even with a cursory glance at the packing box it will be clear — the things from which premises are packed into it.
Mark packaging with fragile, fragile objects correctly, use the inscription “glass” or special badges (a glass or an exclamation mark).
All packing boxes before moving must be signed on several sides.
Do not neglect this simple rule! Be sure to make a numbered list of all the packing boxes with a brief indication — what kind of things are packed in each. Such a document will also help you out a lot on the day of moving (it is convenient to check against it whether everyone has loaded it into the truck, whether all things have reached the new address), and after that it will save a lot of time and effort in finding the right little thing.
So, you have chosen a quality container. The moment has come for immediate preparations for the move — time to pack and pack.
Keep track of the weight of the packing boxes, do not overload them. This is an inconvenience when moving them, and the risk of tearing.
The general principle for packing any thing: put heavier things (for example, books) at the bottom of the box, and you can place something lighter on top.
For packing light volumetric items — clothes, bedding, children’s toys — medium-sized boxes are well suited.
Put dishes, books, and other heavier things and objects in smaller boxes to prevent overloading.
One of our favorite life hacks. Clothes «on a coat hanger» are most conveniently packed and transported in wardrobe boxes — nothing is rumpled or dirty.
Fragile objects, dishes, vases, secure with several layers of air bubble packing tape, fix it with adhesive tape, only then carefully fold it into the boxes.
Small indoor plants in pots are easy to pack: put them in a box of a suitable size, filling the gaps between them with wrapping paper, for example. The main thing is to monitor the temperature during transport!
Packed items immediately try to place indoors compactly. Most likely, there will be a lot of boxes, and they should not clutter up the space. Do not stack heavy boxes on top of each other — the lower one may not support the load.
