When the time comes to transport your life to another city or neighborhood, there are many things to think about. From getting the best relocation team to transferring utilities, getting your child into a new school, purging your belongings, organizing, and packing, etc. – moving is, aside from being an emotional experience, quite a tedious task to complete. But when it comes to packing, are there any ways to do it properly?
If you pack well, you will relocate easily and stress-free. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and protect your goods for a move.
Protect Your Dishes
For any ceramic dishes or fine china, there is a simple rule – wrap them in something soft to isolate them and protect from breaking. If you’re all up for getting your own packing kits, bubble wrap is a savior, but if you opt for a more budget-friendly option, you can use your towels or clothes – it will get the job done yet won’t cost you anything. Another tip for packing plates is to wrap them and pack vertically.
Packing Cosmetics or Make-up
It goes the same as with the dishes – cosmetics, or especially makeup, can be quite fragile and shatter easily inside the container. Wrap them carefully so, for example, your favorite bronzer or blush arrives at the new home in one piece.
Get Plastic Moving Boxes
Even though they’re a more expensive solution than cardboard, plastic crates are the ones to really protect all your belongings. Why is any plastic box superior compared to the old-fashioned one, you might wonder? They are safer since the plastic is much more solid than thin cardboard. Plastic boxes are waterproof, as well as easily stackable.
After packing each box, take a little time to label them, so you know which box belongs to which area. This method will make the transport, as well as unpacking in the new home, much easier.
