When it comes to moving, the most important part of the process is planning and when to start packing. Ideally, you should start packing a few months before your move date, so you have plenty of time to sort your items, provide packing supplies, and pack at your convenience. However, if you're short on time, you can start packing just a few days before the big day. If you're moving cross-country, it's best to start packing at least four weeks in advance.
This way, you can pre-pack the least needed items in advance and load them into the container when it arrives. Additionally, you should move anything you may need sooner rather than later to the front and pack everything else in boxes marked on the back. When packing, it's important to take care of each and every item. Ask each family member to pack a small suitcase with a few changes of clothes, shoes, toiletries, and medicines.
Everything else in the closet can be packed in boxes. If you're using a capsule moving service, it's best to start packing about a week before the capsule is delivered. If you're hiring professionals to do the work, they will handle all relocation tasks including packing. However, if you're packing yourself, make sure to wrap your furniture and load the boxes carefully as the moving company won't be responsible for any damage that may occur inside the boxes. To sum up, it's best to start packing as soon as your move is confirmed.
If you have plenty of time before your move date, start packing months in advance. If not, start packing just a few days before the big day. Make sure to pack each and every item with care and move anything you may need sooner rather than later to the front.
