For most people the thought of packing for a move to a new home in Edmonton is stressful. It takes time, requires a lot of elbow grease, and a touch of delicateness so that nothing will be broken once you unload the boxes.
To help you here are 6 packing hacks you can use when the time comes for you to move.
It is important to label each and every box with essential details to exactly know what’s inside. Labelling boxes where they should be placed like “kitchen” and “bedroom” is great but it isn’t enough. With the extra detailed labelling, it can save you time for guessing what’s inside and know which to unpack.
Knowing how to balance weight distribution is critical especially if you’re going to use a big moving truck. Make sure to load the heaviest boxes first and then the light boxes should be placed on top. By doing this it will guarantee of keeping your items safe and also a safety precaution for the truck for a less chance of tipping over.
Vertical over Horizontal
Your sofa is one of the most space consuming items in your list to move that’s why it’s important how to position it properly in the moving truck. It is recommended that your sofa is positioned vertically instead of horizontal (when possible in a way that doesn’t damage the couch) in the front corner of your truck. This technique will save the truck of vital space and it will help with the weight distribution.
The “First Night” Box
The so-called “first-night” box is a helpful means when you move to a new home in Edmonton. It consists of everything you’ll need on your first night in your new Edmonton home including things like blankets, toiletries, and other necessary items.
The reason for making a “first-night” box is there may be a chance that you’ll be too tired to gather what you’ll need when night-time comes.
Beds and Box Springs
The most protected pieces when moving are fragile items like mirrors and glasses. Wrapping it carefully is normal procedure but placing it in the moving truck where it would not shatter is difficult, but by placing them between mattresses and box springs, you can overcome this situation.
By placing those in between these items can secure them under the cover of something soft which will protect them when the truck starts to move.
