No matter where you’re moving, one of our most essential packing tips is to carefully pack belongings into boxes and storage bins. You can have a few loose items, but the vast majority of items should be packed in modular containers. This will make it easier on the movers who will be hauling, loading, and unloading everything from your home––and ensure that truck space is used efficiently.
It also helps to label each portable container and indicate the room it belongs to in your new home ("kitchen," "bedroom," etc.) for easier unloading. Don’t forget to label any fragile items you have to ensure they get some extra care.
During the packing process, you may also consider creating a detailed inventory of the items contained in each box. While this step requires some extra effort, it will save you time and energy (and therefore reduce stress) when you need to locate specific things upon your arrival.
