Top Five Packing Tips for Your Big Move

When you buy a new home, one of the most stressful parts is packing up your old house. Once you start packing and realize how much stuff you have accumulated over the years, the stress can begin to build. However, if you approach your packing strategically, you can make the process stress-free and well-organized.

Plan ahead – Give yourself plenty of time to pack. Don’t underestimate how much time it will take you to pack each room of your home. By having a strategic plan for how you will tackle your packing, you can ensure it will be a stress-free project.

Gather all your supplies – Before you even begin to pack for your new St. James Plantation, NC real estate, you need to purchase the right packing supplies. Invest in all the packing materials you think you will need. Having boxes, tape, packing peanuts and markers at your disposal will make your packing more efficient. Cut costs by only purchasing the packing supplies you will actually need.

Create “essentials” boxes – When packing, separate and label all of your essential items. Pack the things you will need all the way up until the move in these boxes and make sure they are easy to reach when you arrive at your St James, NC home.

Pack the moving truck strategically – While this may not be something you immediately consider important, it is always better to plan ahead. Devise a plan for how you will best utilize the space available in the moving truck. Keep boxes from one room together and always put the heaviest items at the bottom.

Don’t bring what you don’t need – When you start packing, have a large garbage bag nearby. If you find items when packing that you no longer need, don’t keep them. Start off life in your beautiful new home uncluttered. Donate unused items or have a garage sale before you move, but do not take anything to your St. James, NC new home that you don’t need!
