Moving to Toronto can be one of the most stressful times in your life, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you hire an experienced and professional Toronto or nearby Bradford movers and work out a plan, then it really can be an exciting and stress-free experience. Below are some tips to help with the packing of your belongings and for things to go much more smoothly before moving day arrives.
De-Clutter Before You Even Start Packing
The top item on the bill may be the packing, but it is important not to pack what you don’t need. By de-cluttering all of the unnecessary piles of paperwork, old clothing, and dispensable knick-knacks that you have, the packing process can become a much lighter job.
Make a Priority List
Pack what you need most often last. For instance, pack non-essentials like books, collectables, and ornaments first, then move on to the most necessary items last.
Don’t Overfill Boxes
The boxes may be big, but that doesn’t always mean that they are stronger. Don’t fill the big boxes or overfill the small ones, it’s never worth it for risk of damages. Opt for boxes made of high-quality and thick material that can fully support the weight of the items you’re packing.
Breakages during the move might happen due to a large amount of different uncontrollable reasons. Thus, it’s important to work with a Toronto moving company that have insurance in place for mishaps and you must ensure that your packaging is top-notch.
Essentials for Your First Night in Your New Home
What might you need during the first few days in your new place? Tea, coffee, a change of clothes and your toothbrush, perhaps? Make a list of essentials and pack them in a separate box. This box can be stored in your car so that it is readily available when you get to your new home.
Doing all the packing on moving day is an option, but definitely not the best one. Starting early with the non-essentials will lighten your load and make the whole experience easier. The earlier you pack up your things, the lesser are the chances of you forgetting anything or incurring damage to your belongings because of rushed and haphazard packing.
