The task of packing up every item in your home for a move may seem daunting, but there are a few tricks to tackling this mammoth task.  Whether you are moving locally or across seas, a lot of thought and organization goes into packing.  Here are 3 tips from our New Jersey movers to help you when preparing for a move:

  1. Start Early
  2. Donate
  3. Boxes of Necessities
Start early – By getting a head start on your packing, the job will be much smaller. Start by packing rooms that are not often used.  If you get the whole family involved, it won’t be overwhelming and will go quickly.

Donate – Before you even begin packing boxes, go through each room and get rid of items that haven’t been used in the past year.  There is no need to haul belongings that aren’t used anymore.  Items that are still in good condition can be donated to someone who will be able to us them.  Items that aren’t being used because they are in poor condition should be tossed in the garbage.

Boxes of necessities – There are several items you will need immediately after moving into your new home.  You won’t have time to empty every box on moving day, so you should have essentials in easily accessible, clearly marked boxes.  These necessities should include items like toiletries, bed sheets, towels, food, basic cleaners, disposable dishware and toys for children.

Planning out your packing process can help to make this task more manageable.  Our moving company in New Jersey also offers full-service moves and packing services to help you in the moving process.
