Top 3 packing hacks
These days we have a DIY approach to more things than ever before, from putting together IKEA furniture to home renovations, and even moving. Whilst hiring a professional removalist is always going to be the fastest, cheapest, and most efficient way to move, you can still do your own packing! Are you having trouble finding interstate furniture removalists Melbourne? Say goodbye to your troubles! Interstate Removals are here to help! With over ten years in the business, we have built a reputation as the best in the removals industry! Just ask our clients! We are here to help you every step of the way. Here are our top 3 packing hacks to get you moving:
This can be a problem area for a lot of people. While in theory you are going to get straight into packing on the weekend, you may go out on Friday evening for afternoon drinks, meet up with friends on Saturday, watch movies on Sunday, and before you know it your weekend is over and your precious packing time is wasted! Devoting an entire weekend to packing may seem like a lot, but believe us, it’s worth it. To make things more fun, set challenges for yourself. For example pack five boxes then have a 15 minute break, use a half hour timer, or pack up the living room then order takeout dinner. Before you know it, it’ll all be done!
Make a party of it!
Well, not exactly a party, but invite your friends around to help! A few extra sets of hands will get the job done a lot more quickly than you could have done yourself. Entice them with the idea of after-packing drinks and the promise that you’ll help them with the same tasks next time they move. If you are moving interstate, this will be a great way of spending some quality time with your mates before the big day!
Ever noticed that cardboard moving boxes all look uncannily similar? This is exactly why a clear and effective labelling system is absolutely necessary. To begin with label the room each box belongs to, then underneath add the names of items specific items. If you are extremely organised, you may consider also using a colour coding system. For example, use different colour packing tape on the boxes depending on the room they are from. For example, red for kitchen and blue for bathroom!
