PackingĀ For A Local or Interstate Move

Packing and moving can be stressful. While there is no way to avoid packing altogether, you can ensure your experience runs as smoothly as possible by understanding how to pack strategically. Here are five ways to make the process a little easier:

Bay Area moversGet some boxes – early in the process! This may sound like an obvious first step, but many people put off box acquisition until the last minute. Start collecting boxes about a month before a big move, so that when it comes time to pack, you are not running back and forth to the supermarket trying to find enough boxes.

Gather all packing supplies in one place. Designate an area for boxes of various sizes, padding supplies, markers/labels, packing tape, and scissors. Having everything together will help you keep your packing process more organized.

Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others. Talk to friends and coworkers who have done similar moves. Read moving company reviews before you hire people or companies to assist with the process.

Pack a bag for the move. No matter how early you plan to arrive at your new home, moving day promises to be hectic. Plan ahead by packing a bag with the items you (and all family members) will need for a day or two.

Find a trusted packing and moving company. Moving is hard work; consider hiring a packing and moving company to make the process easier.
