DIY for packing for a move

Shifting? Relocating? Travelling? Redecorating?  Whatever may be your reason, packing things to protect them is a must!! Packing important and valuable items is like ensuring them from various climatic and damaging conditions.

We are listing some tips to start with:

I don’t want it now?

Many items are not required for the coming season or maybe do not match with the current choice of redecoration. We recommend packing such an item first. They being seasonal may get damaged in another season.  Shoes, sweaters, umbrellas, fur coats, warm rugs, etc. such items are stored till next year and don't need immediate access.

My valuable collectibles!

We possess a lot of valuable possession or collectible or antiques etc. When sifting these may get damaged if not packed and handles properly. Such item also needs to pack properly to store for years and generation to come. This is due to their sentimental value attached to them. So we can pack these in bubble wrap, boxes, etc.

Use what is readily available the buying new.

A lot of local retailers and businesses have boxes and wrapping material stored with them. They discard it after one use. You can ask such vendors for the packing material. This will not make it hassle-free but also economical.

Multi packing

We have a lot of fragile packing to do at the time of shifting. Let us do multi- packing. Use cloths to wrap fragile items. Fill up pots and pans with spices containers, dish towels, and other kitchen items to save space.

Put stemware and glasses inside clean socks for extra padding. This will not also help you store your item but also no extra space for clothes.


Sort and List

Write the contents of each box on the box, or on an inventory list. Even better create an Excel document that tracks the contents of each box.

Label the sides of boxes so you can read the labels even when the boxes are stacked.

Unpack your boxes by room to prevent constant back and forth trips around the house, especially if you have stairs!
