Make a list
For your ease, number each box and make a list of what is in each one, this will make me unpacking process much smoother. You may want to make a note on the box as to which room in belongs.
Set-up donation pick-up before moving day.
Arrange for a charity to come pick-up items you plan to donate after all packing is completed.
Packing your household goods.
Packing can appear to be an overwhelming task. Pack one room at a time until it has been fully packed. Dividing into several smaller task makes your packing goal more manageable.
Use small boxes for heavier items and larger boxes for light-weight bulky items.
Pack boxes to the top. This prevents them from being crushed when they are stacked.
If you're moving expensive art, ask your relocation consultants about special crating. Never wrap oil paintings in regular paper; it will stick. Pictures framed in glass should be wrapped with brown packing paper, or bubble wrap and placed inside a mirror/picture box. Use plenty of bunched-up packing paper as padding above and below.
Don't apply packing tape directly to polished or painted wood finishes. removing the tape could cause damage to the surface.
DO NOT PACK!
Don't pack flammables or other chemicals dispose of partially used cans of paint, thinner, bleach, or any other substance that may be flammable or combustible. You need to drain the fuel from your lawn mower and other machines before loading.
Loading your household goods.
Make the loading process easier and more organized by designating a room in your home/apartment, preferably the one closest to the door, in which to place all your boxes. Keep related boxes together since they'll end up in the same room. This will help cut on the carrying time and make the move much more efficient.
