It’s always exciting to move to a new apartment, but moving can also be stressful some times. It’s all about the little things that make the difference.
Here are some tips to save you some headaches when you move:
1. Find free moving boxes
Check out the local grocery stores, clothing stores, Craigslist and other classifieds.
2. Pack the clothes without the hangers
To save time you can remove the clothes from hangers, fold and wrap them in plastic wrap. Then zip-tie the hangers together.
3. Remove Furniture handles
If you remove the handles from drawers then you could load furniture with the drawers inside and save space on the truck.
4. Keep the plates vertical
It’s safer to pack the plates vertically like old vinyl records – they will have less chance of breaking on the move.
6. Wrap the mirrors and pictures
Take care of all glass items to make sure they have enough padding to ensure they don’t break in the process – use towels and sheets for this.
