The only thing you need to keep in mind, before you start packing is the better you pack, the better the condition of the goods. The items need to be organized and packed accordingly. Therefore, give your packing time, and follow the tips given below:
Make use of as many boxes as you can. Pick on sturdy ones, as these help in stacking the items, and don’t require a lot of space either. Boxes could be whatever shape you like, and whatever size you are comfortable carrying as long as you seal them with the right packing tape. Also, ensure that you have an adequate supply of the right packaging material like bubble wrap, shrink wrap, old newspapers, napkins and towels, tissue papers, etc.
Similarly, when packing furniture, make certain that you disassemble it. Dressers, vanities, chests, all have drawers that can be removed so that they don’t fall out while you are moving. Besides, it will make the furniture a lot lighter for you to carry. Moreover, wrap the table and chair legs in paper or any other material to protect it. If in case, you have lightweight furniture, it can be stacked upside down on tables. Do not pack all the heavy items together; it will be extremely difficult to carry the weight. Use materials in order to cover up your furniture. This ensures that it is safe and well-protected.
Screens, mirrors, etc, can be stored on the edge, but never flat. For crockery, chinaware, and other antiques, you can place a layer of padding inside the bottom as well as at the top of the boxes. This gives an additional protection. What's more, these items should be separately wrapped and placed. More to the point do not fail to label each and every box.
Metal tools and equipment should be cleaned and wiped using tissue paper, or a rag that has a few drops of machine oil so as to stop it from rusting.
Take out the time and put in the effort, you won’t go wrong with this one!
