How to pack for a move?

Packing for a move can be one of the most time-consuming tasks, especially when it comes to ensuring that all of your belongings are secure during relocation. Whether you’re moving just down the street or across the country, there are some key tips and strategies to make packing up much easier.

  1. Gather all the necessary packing supplies. You’ll need a variety of boxes in different shapes and sizes as well as packing tape, bubble wrap, newspaper or other wrapping materials, markers for labeling your boxes, and scissors. If possible try to purchase supplies at least three weeks prior to the moving date; this way, you won’t feel rushed when it comes time to pack up your home.
  2. Separate belongings into categories. Start by making an inventory of all your stuff. Create three groups: “keep”, “donate”, and “throw away” for items that are broken or worn out beyond repair. If you haven’t used something in more than a year, it’s probably time to donate or throw it away! Consider having garage sales to make extra cash while decluttering at the same time.
  3. Pack room by room. Taking each room one at a time and breaking down the items into manageable chunks will help you stay organized and efficient. Begin with things you don’t often use, such as seasonal decorations or collection pieces that are stored away in closets or cabinets. Then move on to larger items that require extra care when being packed away, like mirrors or electronics.
  4. Label each moving box with its contents. Use labels that are clear and easy to read, such as a room name or an item category (clothing, kitchenware, etc.). This will make it easier to know where certain items go when you unpack at your new home.
  5. Secure moving boxes. Reinforcing each box with tape helps protect against damage should the boxes get wet or bumped around on their journey from an old home to a new one. Tape all seams and closures so that no air can escape and nothing can get into the boxes during transit. Additionally, using quality packing materials like bubble wrap or foam peanuts ensures everything stays securely in place within each box.

At Superior Mover, we offer comprehensive packing services, which include providing all necessary supplies, carefully wrapping items, and securely loading everything onto the truck. We also provide partial-service packing where you pack some items yourself and leave the more difficult ones for us such as furniture, fragile pieces, mattresses and more. No matter what kind of service you choose from us, Superior Mover will help ensure your possessions are packed with care and arrive safely at your new home or office.
