If you’re planning a move and have already rented self storage in Etobicoke, then you’re well on your way to success, but here a few handy tips that can make the packing process even easier.
First off, come up with a schedule and give yourself plenty of time. The rest of your life won’t stop just because you have to pack up for a move. Give yourself at least 6-8 weeks to get everything packed and you can coordinate a move that maintains peak efficiency by being well organized.
A wise person once said “anything worth doing is worth doing right.” Okay, Hunter S. Thompson said something quite similar, and while he maybe didn’t live the most organized life you can still find much wisdom in what he had to say. If you’re packing your possessions with the intent of moving them, they must be worth something to you. So why not pack them right? Use high quality packing/moving boxes and other supplies. Designed specifically to better protect items while being moved, these packing supplies will become your best friend as you pack your home. You can find these packing supplies at any facility renting self storage in Etobicoke.
Stick to your plan when packing up the house. As much as you can, pack an entire room before moving on to the next. This will accomplish a few things. First, items meant to be kept together will stay together. Secondly, completely emptying a room will provide space from which you can stage the packing of the next room. Third, it will feel like you’re making real progress with your packing if you can see the entire contents of one room after the next going into boxes rather than going from room to room and packing only a few items at a time. Moving can be stressful, so any technique that helps relieve the pressure you’ll be feeling is a good idea.
It’s worth the time to take photographs of the wiring for your electronics, so as to provide a reference for re-assembly. Bag cables/wiring/remote controls for each component separately so as to avoid getting everything mixed up. It’s always a good idea to have saved the boxes of electronic components as they’re sure to provide a perfect fit, but if you have to use other boxes make sure you use towels (or something similar) to help prevent a component from moving around too much inside the box during transit.
When you’re all packed and are loading your moving van, pack it right. Large/heavier items (furniture, appliances, etc.) should go on the van last so they can be among the first items to come off. This is also true for any boxes and other items you’ll be placing in self storage in Etobicoke as you’ll likely be stopping off at your storage unit before going to your new home. Packing your van in this manner will make the unloading much more efficient.
Moving will never be easy, but following these basic packing tips can help make it easier.
