What Room Should You Pack First When Moving?
Picking A Room To Pack First
Looking for ways to guarantee a stress-free move and figure out the logistics of moving? Don’t overcomplicate it. The truth is being organized will pay off during your move so, with your moving checklist in hand, it’s time to get started on packing. Which room to pack first will vary in every home.
Consider these three tips as you figure out which room to pack first:
- The easiest way to start packing up your belongings is by going room to room and visually assessing your moving situation. Make note of large items that will need to make the move with you in each room such as appliances, pianos, large furniture pieces, etc. Your mover will need this list in advance to properly plan for your moving day.
- Dedicate a space for moving supplies such as packing materials, labels, and your moving lists. This space is your central zone for all things move-related and this will be helpful if family and friends come to help.
- Because there will likely be items that you need until you leave your current home, you can’t just pack everything in each room. Consider designating a room or a small section of a room to those items you still need while you can go ahead and begin packing up the rest of the items and set them aside.
While you’re packing, you should take the time to go through your belongings and decide which items you are going to bring with you to your new home. You may be surprised at how many of your things you decide to part with before your move. Doing this now will make unpacking easier at your new home and will help save valuable space on your moving truck.
