How to Get Packing When You Don't Know Where to Start

Residential MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Packing isn't easy for all. It might be tough to begin, or to know the place to start. You could want to do your own packing however discover the undertaking really daunting once you begin with the 1st box. How do you get your total residence into boxes and after that loaded into a single truck? If you aren't certain where to start, when to get going, or how you can pack your belongings - you are in the right place.

From handling your initial move to packing when you are too overwhelmed to think, these simple recommendations from professional movers in El Paso will help you begin setting one carton on top of another until your residence is packed and ready to go.

Start out with Cartons and a Permanent Marker

Begin with that first box. Grab a pile of 'Medium' packing boxes plus a permanent marker. Begin with the rooms you use least, such as the shed or den. Clear cabinets into cartons (with padding, as needed) and mark the carton for its contents. And then get started with yet another box. And then another. Clear out your off-season garments directly into one box as well as your backup toiletries directly into another. Clear your bookshelves and desk drawers to one box along with your less used kitchen pots and pans in one more.

One carton at a time, label by label, your home will get packed.

Split Your Packing into Achievable Pieces

If perhaps packing the full residence may seem like a huge undertaking, break it up. Pack your home office to begin with, or everything in your dresser you don't use weekly. Pack up your storage areas, they're already half-packed anyway. Section your home into areas, leaving your most-used items for last. Undertake packing one evening and weekend at a stretch and congratulate yourself on reaching objectives.

Get Rid of Stuff You Have No Need For

Moving is the perfect time to purge your possessions of anything you have no need for or wouldn't like to bring along with you. All those shirts you don't ever put on, the pots and pans you don't ever prepare a meal with, or the pieces of furniture too worn out to be worth the moving truck space can get kicked to the curb or - better yet - donate them. There may be a young couple who urgently needs an old durable sofa or a family who could really take advantage of that extra bed.

Get rid of things you don't need. Whatever you would not miss in the new home is now a candidate to lighten up your load and decrease the amount you will need to pack.

Give Yourself Ample Time

If you're not a professional mover in El Paso, begin early. Most people cannot pack their home over a long weekend, or even over three or four weekends. Therefore, allow lots of lead-up time to pack the house - and recognize when it is time to call in the moving company reinforcements if you merely don't make ample headway before your moving date gets near. This is typical, not every individual is a packing machine.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
