Getting ready for your big move? Whether you are relocating your home, office, or other property, the prospect of transporting your belongings often seems easy enough. Perhaps you feel quite confident in your ability to pack your own cartons to ensure your items arrive safely and undamaged. But packing effectively may not be as easy as it looks. Did you know there is an art to packing? Before your next home or business removal, you may want to reassess your packing style to be certain your belongings get the protection and treatment they deserve.
Step 1: Consider Your Situation
Local, interstate, and international removals all share one thing in common: the need for high quality packing. First, assess what you are transporting and obtain the appropriate cartons for your unique needs. You will likely require cartons of a variety of sizes and purposes. Plenty of valuables? You may need small, sturdy boxes that give your valuables protection and necessary space. Transporting an entire library of books? You’ll be after some heavy duty boxes that will help you balance the heavy load. The staff at Lynns is happy to help advise and provide the proper cartons for your needs.
Step 2: Assemble the Right Tools
Cartons are your first stop, but you’ll also want to have a supply of packing tape and cushioning supplies such as paper, bubble wrap, or styrofoam. The packing tape should be of high-quality to help keep your cartons securely fastened. The cushioning items will provide the necessary buffer to keep your items from breakage and damage on their journey. Ideally, small, fragile items should each be wrapped individually, and fitted into the right box with other items and an abundance of cushioning. Place paper or bubble wrap along the bottom of your carton as well as lining the edges and separating items from bumping as they are transported. It may seem like the majority of your packing materials are cushioning products, but that is okay. It’s vital to protect those belongings most prone to damage.
Step 3: Pack With a Plan
When packing, keep your cartons to a manageable weight. Pack heavier items on the bottom with lighter items on top. Everything should be well cushioned and properly distributed. Many householders preparing for a move find that it is easiest to pack one room at a time. This ensures continuity with your packing and also enables you to proceed in a systematic way. When unpacking, having everything organised from a particular room is also very helpful for sorting in your new home. Be sure to label your cartons clearly and accurately directly after packing them.
