How to Make the Moving Process a little Easier
No one enjoys the process of moving. To try and make the moving process a little easier, we at Mini Safe Storage in San Leandro have gathered some tips to help you with your move.
Set the Necessities Aside
When you are packing up and moving your home you will want to set aside the items you will be using the first few days in your new home. Unpacking can take quite a while and it is a hassle to dig through large amounts of boxes when you are trying to find what you need. Set aside enough clothing, cookware, food, and bathroom accessories to get you by in the first few days in your home while you unpack.
Use what you have for Packing Supplies
Packing supplies can be expensive, especially if you have a large amount of items to pack. Utilize the packing supplies you have on hand first before going out and purchasing any additional packing supplies. You can use blankets, rags, and old newspaper to wrap up the fragile items in your home. Utilize suite cases and duffle bags to put clothes and non-breakable items in during the move.
Pack by Room
While it may seem easier to just throw everything you can into a box, it is important to stay organized during the packing process. Packing by room will make it easier on you when the time comes to unpack all of your new items in your new home. Label all of your boxes accordingly and make sure not to over pack each box. Boxes that are too heavy can cause damage to you and the items you have placed in the box.
Loading your Truck or Trailer
When loading your truck or trailer you will want to start by loading the boxes first, and then the furniture. You can easily pack up the back of the truck or trailer when corresponding box sizes. Make sure you have the heaviest boxes on the bottom and the lighter boxes up towards the top.
Purge as you pack
