Aeon house movers and packers will sort, packer and also reassemble in the new apartment. If you have decided to sort and pack on your own, even then the list below ought to help.
How to Pack for a Move-in One Day
Here is a checklist of everything you need to do to pack your apartment a day before the move.
Tackle Each Room Separately
It is essential to tackle each room separately. This will save you a lot of time and energy since you will not have to carry around stuff from one room to another. Go to each room with the packing supplies and start packing things in the same category in the boxes. Pack books in small boxes and lighter things such as clothes, accessories, etc. in large boxes. Pack fragile items in bubble wrap. Cover the bottom and the top of the box with newspapers to safeguard the items from dust. Also, label each box with an appropriate name like books, utensils, crockery, etc. Mark fragile, delicate or handle with care with glassware, bone china or breakable decor items.
Get rid of clutter
Planning in advance will also give you enough time to identify junk and eliminate it before the crazy day of the move. Even if you did not get the time for that, you can still declutter your house by creating purge and donate piles while packing. Just pack everything that you think you need in your new house. If you are not 100% sure about something, put it in the purge or donate pile.
Label Your Boxes Thoughtfully
Whether you have hired a company that provides packing and moving services or you have decided to handle packing on your own, the boxes need to be labelled properly. You can write the contents of the box with a marker, the room it will go in, number the boxes in the same room, etc. For special items, create labels such as “Breakables”, “Open First”, “Important”, etc. Consider labelling on all 4 sides of the box to reduce loading and unloading time and also finding information about the contents of the box easily.
No matter how well you plan the move, a few days before the move and a few days after can be a little chaotic. You may need to take some time to get settled in your new surroundings, get used to staying in a new place and set up everything the way you want it. Therefore, it is essential to pack a 72-hour kit for each member of the family so that they have all their daily essentials in one place. Even if their room is not set up, they must be able to find everything they need on a daily basis from their hairbrushes, combs, shampoo, toothbrush, medication, etc. in that kit. This is one of the best packing tips for relocating to another city, particularly for families. You will have to make a list before you pack these kits and involving the family members in creating this kit or bag can save you a lot of time.
