Packing Moving Tips
1. The Right Side of The Box
This is the most common mistake which most people make. They don’t select the right box size for their move, making their work more difficult while loading those boxes in the truck. Always put heavy goods in the smaller boxes to make them easy to carry. By selecting the right side of the box, you can also save the number of boxes used to move, ultimately affecting your moving cost.
2. Place Heavy Goods on The Bottom of The Box
It is essential while packing a box that does not place all heavy things in the same box. This will make it very heavy, which will become very difficult to carry the box. The professional mover always recommends placing heavy goods on the bottom of the box and lighter objects on the top to make it balanced and accessible to carry.
3. Tape Your Boxes Well
Always tape your boxes well to keep the good present in them well protected. During the taping, apply two to three wraps of tape around the box to make it properly sealed.
4. Empty Spaces in The Box
While placing things in the box, make sure that you do not leave any space in it. These empty spaces allow the goods present in the box to move, through which they can be broken. So, always place pieces of clothes, and you can also place foam in those spaces.
