One of the most challenging things for any task is figuring out where exactly to begin. The same goes for where to start when you are on the move. The list of things to do is practically out the door, so what do you focus on first? Moving isn’t the time to close your eyes and jab your finger at any task on the list; you must be productive in your choosing. The EZ Move team are professionals when it comes to this type of thing – and all things moving. Here are some tips on where to start when packing for a move from the experts at EZ Move.
1. Make a list
Make a list and check it twice – well more than twice. This list is your holy grail and the first step to beginning your packing journey. Writing your duties down will help organize all the bits and pieces of information flying around your brain. This organizational technique will allow for you to check off or scratch off – whatever you prefer – all the tasks that you have accomplished as you move down your list.
2. Stock up on packing supplies
Getting the supplies you need in bulk will help the beginning stages of packing move faster and more efficiently. Try to estimate the number of materials you will need and – worse case scenario – you can always get more supplies. Running out of packing essentials will increase your errand time and lessen your energy and patience for things. You can acquire used boxes and other supplies from friends, stores, or your workplace to cheapen the cost.
2. Pack the non-essentials first
Packing things that you need or use every day is counterproductive and makes little sense. Be sure to pack things that aren’t essential to your time being such as winter clothes if its summer, or pool supplies if its winter. Packing the things you don’t need will declutter your space and lessen the chance that you’ll have to reopen and rummage through a box of things you have already packed and sealed.
3. Find the right movers
A crucial step when you start your packing journey is finding your movers. Moving is not a one person job – you need a team of experts. Finding professionals with your best interests in mind is a key aspect when moving. Do your research and don’t settle. Moving is a process and the best team will provide the best support for you.
