Pack and Unpack by Room

It doesn’t matter if you’re moving your home or your business, the number one tip you can follow is to pack and unpack room by room. This not only makes the process of moving more manageable, but it also helps you to stay organized during the process. Write out a plan prior to any move listing out all the rooms that have to be addressed. Assign specific dates to this plan, starting with the least-used rooms and ending with the most important rooms. Make sure to start packing early in order to be able to move on time without a massive rush to pack at the end.

Choose the Right Packing Materials and Tools

In order to pack quickly and pack properly, you will want to have all the materials and tools you will need to get the job done ahead of time. Make sure you’re stocked up on boxes, packing tape, and bubble wrap or packing paper. In addition to these important materials, you will also need the right tools to make unpacking easy. Make sure you have the right safety cutter to pop open box tops quickly, like the SafeCutters Box Top Cutter.

Label Like Crazy

As you pack, take the time to label all your boxes based on where they need to go and what they contain. These two labels on each box can make moving easier and unpacking easier. You won’t forget where you packed up the printer or which box contains all of your silverware when you follow this method. It also makes it much easier for movers to handle items with care and make sure the boxes are placed in the correct rooms in the new location, saving you time and effort.

Opt for Professional Help

In addition to making sure you are prepared for a move, you might want to consider hiring professional help to physically move everything for you. With all their experience, movers are excellent to help get large items out of difficult places and they can also help save you time. Many movers offer packing services for your home and business as well as moving services if you want the extra help.

If you follow the above tips, your move is sure to proceed smoother. Don’t forget to order your SafeCutters products in advance in order to make sure you have all the tools and supplies that you need for your move. Shop online today!
