Sometimes relocations don’t happen as per our schedule and before we know it, the day of moving is looming in front of us and the packing hasn’t been even half completed! It is easy to get fretted and anxious about all the packing left. Some even go as far as to postpone the date of relocation after a few days. But such extreme steps aren’t necessary. But by following a few moving house tips, you can ace your last minute packaging and get your things transported right on schedule.
1. Purge through your stuff
What’s the best way to avoid packing a lot of stuff? Getting rid of the unnecessary things that you know you won’t be needing instead of wasting the time by painstakingly packing them. As you pack, have two boxes – one box to pack the things you need and another box to keep the things that you won’t be needing or wouldn’t even realize if it missed. Be practical when sorting through the stuff and avoid such wasting of time.
When you are done with collecting the box that you don’t want to carry to your next home, you can sort among it to decide which ones you want to give away to charity, which ones you want to sell and which ones should be tossed out. Alternatively, which you are keeping things aside that you don’t want to carry to your new home, sort it then and there in different boxes depending on what you want to do. This can save so much of your time; all you have to do is think and multi-task a bit.
2. Create a sequence and follow it
Work gets done easier and faster if a single sequence is followed. This can be best executed when two or more people are involved with the work. You can sit down in a room with one person wrapping the items as needed and another person quickly helping to stick tapes all over to prevent the packaging from opening. Another one can be in charge of the boxes to smartly fit as many items in a box without crowding it, packing the boxes, labelling them and keeping them to one side.
Once you follow a sequence, your work will be much easier done than you expect and sometimes, you start to do the work subconsciously without feeling the burden of it.
3. Get all your packing supplies ready
Do you where we can definitely avoid losing time? Running around to the supermarket at the last minute to find the right sized box or getting the right packing supplies. There are situations that can be avoided easily if you make a single trip to the supermarket before you start packing and get all the right packing supplies in sufficient quantity and picking up a sufficient number of boxes in different sizes that can contain all your things.
4. Get the help of professional removalists
