How to Go About Packing and Unpacking During Moving
Whether you’re packing up the house or letting a professional company like Reign do the heavy lifting for you, the packing and unpacking process is an emotional roller coaster. For some, it fills them with excitement as they anticipate their new home; for others, it’s just the drudgery of trying to unpack boxes and sort their belongings. Whatever your feelings, it’s important to get a handle on the packing process before you reach your destination to avoid any last-minute headaches and make your move as smooth as possible.
Choosing Your Packing Service
A professional packing service will help take the stress and worry out of the process by packing all of your items, labeling them appropriately, and using top-notch materials to protect your goods throughout the moving process. They’ll also know how to pack fragile items with plenty of paper and padding so that they don’t suffer any damage during the move.
Before They Begin
Once your movers have arrived at your location, it’s time to start packing the larger items that will be loaded onto the truck first. For example, if you have furniture or a piano, it’s a good idea to remove them from the living room or other high-traffic areas so that the movers can load them easily into the back of the truck.
The First Boxes Are Ready
Once everything is packed, the movers can start unloading the rest of the boxes in the right rooms. If you’re unloading the boxes yourself, make sure that you label and color-code each box so that you can quickly locate their contents.
