There's no doubt about it, moving can be extremely stressful. And with all of the different aspects that you have to deal with, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. However, there are ways that you can mitigate these feelings, and it begins with one of the first steps in the moving process: packing. 

Yet so many people still aren't sure how to properly pack. That's why, in this blog, we'll discuss the importance of strategic and organized packing. But before we do that, we thought you should know more about us.

State Where the Boxes Go

Most people will simply just label what's actually in the box like "T-shirts" or "TV." Instead, you should label where the boxes are actually going. Labels like "Master Bedroom" and "Living Room" make it much easier for your moving company to operate in an efficient manner and help to prevent any confusion.

Use Proper Packing Materials

The packing materials that you choose to use will play a crucial role in the success of your move. For fragile items, use extra packing supplies to reduce the risk of damaged or broken items. Consider the following as proper packing supplies:

  • Packing Paper
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Grocery Bags
  • Foam

Use High-Quality Tape

This is an aspect that is often overlooked but is extremely important. Make sure that you're using strong and durable moving tape. Especially for heavier items, you want to know that your tape will hold. And the better the tape is, the less of it you'll have to use.
