The time has come for your first move, and you’re a little nervous. Whether you’re moving away to college, moving in with a friend, moving across the country, or just moving into your significant other’s place – packing is still going to be a big task. Fortunately, the professional packing company All My Sons Moving & Storage in Salt Lake City can share a few tips to make your first time move go smoothly!
Take a Thorough Inventory
Take an inventory on your home (or your room!) and determine what needs to make the trip with you, and what can stay behind. Consider the space of your new location. If you are moving in with another person, determine what they already have in terms of furniture and appliances so you aren’t unnecessarily doubling up on items. Try donating, selling, or throwing those unused or outgrown items away.
Gather Packing Products
You will need durable packing products. This is not something our team of Salt Lake City packers suggest you skip out on. Trusting old, worn out boxes to hold your items will only get you so far before they break and your items are scattered everywhere. When you enlist packing services with our team, we provide you with the highest quality packing supplies including boxes of all sizes, specialty boxes, antique protection, wrapping, padding, and more. You will also need labels, packing tape, bubble wrap, furniture covers, and packing peanuts to safely secure your items before transit. We’ve got you covered.
The Packing Process
Try to stay as organized as possible in the packing process. You will thank yourself when it comes time to unpack and you know exactly where everything is located. Pack no more than 50 pounds of items per box, and label each box as you go.
When everything is packed up and ready to go, our team will arrive to safely move your items in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas. Call us today to learn about our Salt Lake City packing services and packing supplies.
