Where to start packing when moving?

One of the most essential parts of any moving process is packing. Many moving companies require you to pack before you move. That's why it's important to know what to start packing first.

Before you even begin packing your items you have to purchase packing supplies such as boxes, tape, packing paper, or bubble wrap which are the most important things you need. When all the essentials are ready you can go ahead with an actual packing process.

It's not a secret that packing takes a lot of time and the more experienced you are in this process more efficient it will be. That's why it's important to understand where you should start packing to make sure it goes as fast as possible. As professional packers, our expertise can guarantee you great results.

First of all, the attic, and basement are usually the first places where you can begin your packing simply because you don't use these belongings. Then you can go around your kitchen and living room area, and office as well, and then should be your bedrooms. The garage must be one of the last places when you pack for a move.

Some tips on packing for a move

Here are some tips on how to properly pack your items:

  • Make sure you provide some extra care to pack your fragile items

  • Use bags for your clothes

  • Use packing materials such as packing paper or bubble wrap on the bottom and top of the boxes

Another important tip on the packing process is to get rid of belongings you no longer need. Packing is always a great way to decide to dump some old furniture and items like old clothes.

How soon before moving Should you start packing?

The earlier the better. Moving is a long and stressful process starting from finding a reliable moving company and finishing with unpacking all of your moving boxes. That's why it's important to plan all the processes ahead of the moving day especially packing.
The best time to pack for your move totally depends on the size of your move - the more items you have to pack, the more time you need for that. Professional movers and packers can handle the whole packing of a large one-bedroom apartment just in one day with 3 men crew. But if you are packing yourself we suggest starting early at least 1-2 weeks prior to your moving day. And remember, packing with your family or friends will speed up the process greatly.

Hiring professional packers for your move is a great way to save time. They will carefully pack your fragile items such as dishes, use maximum space in the box to make sure you don't use too many packing materials, use proper box sizes to pack books or clothes, and will pack the entire apartment or house in no time.
