How to Start Packing
Now that you have a good idea of the when and where, you need the how-tos.
1. Have a Designated Packing Zone
Make a zone and claim it as your own.
Having all of your packing materials spread all over the house is going to waste your time, and make it super frustrating when you really need the tape.
Whenever, wherever, and whatever you’re packing, have a space where you can grab what you need and not have to go searching.
Your packing zone can move as you move between rooms. Claim a corner, a counter, or even a whole empty room. Just make sure your zone is well-stocked with packing supplies like tape, markers, and boxes.
2. Label Your Boxes
This isn’t Deal or No Deal. You want to know what’s in each and every box.
Get a batch of markers – good ones – and label every box on both sides with the following information.
-What room it belongs in
-The exact contents
-Whether or not it’s fragile
-What side needs to be up
-Trust us: you are going to be so happy you did this on moving/unpacking day.
3. Get Boxes – Really, Really Good Ones
Before you can label your boxes, you need to get some.
You might be tempted to scour the neighbourhood for cheap – or free – cardboard boxes.
But those flimsy cartons will collapse on you, and your belongings.
Invest in boxes that are actually designed for residential moving. They’re basically custom made to handle anything homeowner can put in them.
We sell moving boxes and deliver them right to you. And we make sure that these boxes are sturdy, reliable, and recyclable. You can give them to a friend, or we’ll pick them up and recycle them for you.
4. Don’t Pack What You Don’t Need
If you don’t need it, there’s really no sense in packing it.
So take a good, hard look at all your belongings. Decide whether you’ll keep it, donate it, or toss it.

6.Create Your Very Own Set Up Kit
Similar to your moving day survival kit, or Batman’s toolbelt, you’ll want kit of tools that will help you set up your new home. This includes:
-A drill battery pack and plug
Really, anything you think you’ll need to put together bed frames, reassemble chairs, or just get your house in order.
Again: pack it, label it, and keep it somewhere you can easily reach it.
7.Assemble the Team
The team being your bubble wrap, boxes, packing tape, crushed paper, packing peanuts, scissors, markers – anything you need to make packing a success.
Get them early, and organize them in your aforementioned packing zone.
