Welcome to B & K Movers Blog – Movin’ on Up! At B & K, we appreciate that you are entrusting us with your most valued possessions. We make sure to treat your items as if they are our own! We will help you through every step of the process, from packing tips to helping you purge.
Do you have a plan for where everything will go? Do you have a sufficient number of boxes? Furthermore, do you know the best way to pack everything? You want to consider weight, where the items will go in your new home and ensure items are secure within their boxes.
A crucial packing tip is making sure you don’t move anything that you no longer need. Lighten your stress and workload by decluttering before you enter the packing stage, which means figuring out what to toss, keep, sell, or donate. Take measurements of your new home and get rid of any furniture that won’t fit or you know you won’t use.
To stay organized, print off multi-colored packing labels or use different colored masking tape and give each room its own color. Label the contents of each box and include the room it belongs in. Then in your new place, use colored tape to mark entrances to rooms. This moving tip will save movers a ton of time. Instead of needing to read the label explicitly or play the room guessing game, they can just match color to color.
Think about how you can repurpose things you have — like hampers, suitcases and laundry bins for storing some of your clothes and household items. To help take up as little space as possible, use vacuum sealing for your clothes.
