Most of the times people usually hire a professional packing and moving company for an efficient moving out process, our moving checklist, will help you pack all your stuff efficiently.

Moving out is both exciting and stressful. With a large pack of luggage waiting to be properly packed and transported, a headache is sure to be welcomed. Most of the times people usually hire a professional packing and moving company for an efficient moving out process, our moving checklist, will help you pack all your stuff efficiently.

Listed below are some of the essential things you need to have for easy packing and moving :

Moving Boxes

Buy moving boxes of various shapes and sizes a few weeks before moving out. Make sure you have started the packing process a little early than the final date of moving out. Starting an early packing will help you give a lot of time to pack all your items in the box efficiently.

Make sure you buy a good quality box. Visit a nearby liquor store and ask for some cartons and boxes. Check the box for any damage or hole. Do not just buy single size boxes; you will require boxes in varying capacities to store your luggage.

Things to keep in mind while buying boxes :

Durability
The condition of the box
The strength of the box to hold the luggage
 
Packing Tapes
 
Once you have packed the items in the box, you will need tape. Look for a quality tape sourced from a trusted tape supplier like MPD Hook and Loop. You will need standard packing tape, duct tape or a strapping tape strapped with nylon fibres. The idea of using a quality tape is to ensure the safety of your luggage inside the box. Tape all the boxes properly and make sure none of the box sides is left open.
 
Types of packing tapes :
  1. Gaffers Tape
  2. Duct Tape
  3. Standard office tape
  4. Electrical tape

These are some of the most commonly used box sealing tapes that are a must to be used at the time of packing your luggage.

Bubble wraps

Bubble wraps are one of the most important packing tools that will make your packing process a lot easier and efficient. Bubble wraps are widely used during packing stuff as they help keep all your items safe and intact keeping them completely safe and secure.

Benefits of bubble wrapping items :

Saves items from shocks and jerks
Keeps the luggage intact
Reusable and recyclable

Permanent labels

Use permanent labels or markers to sort all your luggage. This will help you a lot when unpacking all your stuff. Packing might be easier; unpacking is not. Use markers or permanent labels to colour code the boxes for each room according to the kind of stuff it holds.

How to label items while packing?

Give each box a number
Then colour each box
And finally set a priority

Plastic Bags
 
It is always advised to keep your luggage properly packed in a plastic bag or a cover. For example: Keep all the wires and cables of your computer in a plastic bag separately and then put it inside a moving box. This will help you get rid of all the clutter when unpacking your luggage. Make sure you stock a considerable amount of plastic bags so that you don’t run out of it when packing all the items.
 
Well, these are some of the important things that you will be required when planning to move into your new house. It is always advised to hire a professional packer and mover for an efficient moving out process. With their years of experience and expertise you don’t have to worry about anything, neither the luggage nor the transportation.
