Since you are reading this piece, we assume that you have chosen a new place to move to. We understand the worries that could cloud you before the move begins. Organizing and planning a systematic move may not be possible if you don’t have too much time in hand. Worry not! We at Calgary movers www.matco.ca have some amazing packing hacks defined for you. Take a look:
1. Do a quick photo session of confusing items
This is the best hack for managing electronic items. There is a possibility you own a lot of them including a huge LED TV screen, PlayStation, Music System and more. If you aren’t sure of what cables go where click some pictures of them before the packing begins. You will thank us once the unpacking begins and all you will have to do is check out these pictures.
2. Set aside a box of moving tools
Tools and stationery items are necessary for packing and it is better to have one box for all of them. It is easier to get them and not have to misplace them. Box cutters, stick tapes, markers, screwdrivers, threads are just some of the many things you may need for packing.
3. Towels and blankets as packing materials
Worried about managing your breakables? You have a lot of towels and blankets to be packed. A foolproof thing to do is to bubble wrap your fragile items with these soft materials. They are safe and can be transported without you having to worry about them. Items like cutlery from the kitchen, flower vases, electronic items could make use of your blankets as a safe pad.
4. Try to color code every box
There are two phases you need to be organized about. One is packing and an equally important part is unpacking. We need to make our unpacking easier by color coding every single box that is packed. Suggestions can be given to your team of packers to move a certain color to box to the living room and another one to the bedroom. This will save up a lot of your time as you unpack.
5. Liquids can be packed with a plastic wrap
Your move can go horrifyingly wrong if not done well. Liquids could be your villain in the moving story! Well, a great hack would be to wrap them with plastic one by one. This makes sure it won’t be spilling and creating a mess. The last you want is to be cleaning them up from your packed boxes.
6. Use plastic wrap for steel utensils
If a lot of your utensils are made of steel or silver, chances are they are going to make a lot of noise during the move. Why not wrap them up over newspapers and plastic? This works as a brilliant noise proof method and makes it easy for the packers who carry them.
7. Rubber bands on doorknobs to not be locked out
As the packing and moving happen, chances are you will be walking in and out of the house a lot. This applies to everyone who is helping you out. The last you want is to lock out. Use a rubber band from a doorknob and connect it to the outer one. This way it blocks the chance of it getting locked and will be stuck.
These are just some simple hacks we could help you with. Calgary movers wish you a happy and safe move!
