When you think of preparing for a move, you likely think of packing. Packing is one of the most time-consuming parts of move preparation, which is why many people don’t look forward to doing it. That is why, in this blog article, the professional movers at Westheimer Transfer & Storage will go over some tips on how to pack for a successful move that way you can have a more pleasant moving experience. 

Create A Packing Schedule

The last thing you want to do when it comes to packing up your belongings is doing it at the last minute. This can be a stressful experience and can leave you with a variety of boxes that are disorganized which can lead to a less-than-pleasant unpacking experience. To make sure you are on track with your packing, create a packing schedule. In this packing schedule, you can list the days where you will pack each room in your home. Doing so will help make packing up your items less overwhelming. 

Get The Right Packing Materials

As a homeowner, you likely have some things that are more fragile than others. That is why you need to make sure you have the right packing materials for your belongings. Having just cardboard boxes isn’t all you need. Some packing materials you should consider getting include: 

  • Bubble Wrap
  • Labels
  • Moving Blankets
  • Wrapping
  • … and more!

Label Boxes

When packing, you should make sure that you label each box with the type of items that are in them. Packing random items together can be a recipe for disaster when it comes time to unpack your boxes at your new home. You can label your boxes based on items or the room they are in so that way you know exactly where to unpack each box in your new residence. 

Hire Trained Packers

Of course, if you don’t want to pack your belongings yourself, you can always hire a moving company that provides full packing services, like us here at Westheimer Transfer & Storage. A team of professional packers will have the packing materials they need to safely pack and transport your items for you. All you need to do is make sure you get to your new home and get familiar with it. 

Pack For A Smooth Moving Experience

By following these packing tips, you can be better prepared for your moving day and won’t have to scramble around at the last minute. Packing ahead of time will make sure your move is less stressful and more enjoyable.
