Packing your boxes strategically

Packing your moving boxes can go two ways: strategically or chaotically. It can feel quite good to toss everything in one moving box. But it is not at all handy when actually unpacking those boxes. Or when you own a lot of stuff and just a few boxes. Packing with a certain strategy is the right way to go. It enables you to bring more than you actually think and makes unpacking an easy job. We provide you with a number of moving tips:

  1. Organize your boxes.
    Firstly, analyse how much stuff you have that actually needs to go into boxes. It wil help you to determine whether you have enough boxes or if you should buy some more. Subsequently, it is good to know which box contains which items when unpacking. So keep your marker close! If you number every part of the house, you are able to easily unpack the boxes and bring them to the right room. For example, give the kitchen area and other parts of the house different numbers. This will prevent the cutlery from ending up at the attic.
  2. Small boxes, large boxes
    Maybe you have bought different moving boxes that each can hold a different weight. The large moving boxes are suited for light materials as this will prevent you from hurting your back. Put clothing or office supplies in large boxes, rather than all sorts of books. Even better: put your books in a trolley to easily carry your heavy books.
  3. Packing strategically
    There is a strategy for everything in life – such as packing moving boxes. Put all materials with a flat surface on the bottom of the moving box. Should there be any space left, you might fill it with materials that do not need to be put neatly together, such as toys, cutlery, make-up etcetera.
