Working with several homeowners across Toronto and the GTA, we have seen it all when it comes to moving time. Here are a few useful moving tips that might reduce your workload by little:
- Smart Packing
Perhaps the most obvious, yet underrated tip : Packing Smart. If you pack all your materials and items well, you should know exactly where everything is. Moving is already a stressful undertaking and having some form of organized method goes a long way. All Packing is done in cardboard boxes and begins with knowing where to find cardboard boxes. Grocery Stores, Liquor Stores and Several thrift stores all carry small and large boxes you can use to pack up your materials.
Another form is packing is by using plastic bags. Using Clear Plastic Bags allows you to transport what you need without wasting time. Clothes, Electronics and other light weight items are recommended for these items. Your everyday material is what you must put into these bags to allow for a simple transition. Things such as wires, computers, monitors, mouse etc are all examples of what can go into these bags. Be sure to know what connection goes where and even take a picture if you have too.
- Label Everything!
Labeling is key. When you label boxes, you are a lot more organized and you can organize things in your new house very quickly as well. Be sure to take the following precautions when it comes to labelling:
- Apply Labelling on Multiple Sides of Each Box
- Box Numbers – Identify which box came from which room
- Keep a count on the number of boxes.
