How to Pack for a House Move?

The average time it takes to pack all of your belongings is determined primarily by their quantity. However, in most of our packing tips articles, we state that you should begin the process earlier than most people believe. For example, if for example, if you pack one box per day, two months should be enough for a large house. One month should suffice for smaller homes. Of course, there is no precise figure, but you get the idea.

Begin with rooms and items that are used less frequently.

For example, you could start with the rooms on the highest floor, especially if you have a loft, and then gradually work your way down to the lower floors. Garden tools, coats, and Christmas lights are just a few examples of seasonal items you can pack before moving on to the rest of your belongings. Sorting through already packed belongings makes it easier to separate the boxes you’ll be taking with you from those you’ll donate or give away.

Donate the things you don’t want to carry with you

In terms of things, you don’t want to take with you, consider holding a garage sale or donating your old unwanted items to charity. There’s also eBay, so you’ll have plenty of options. If you have friends helping you with your moving to Melbourne, see if they need anything you plan to sell. After all, you’re not paying them, and they deserve something in exchange for their trouble. You can sweeten the deal by including pizza or drinks.

Roll your garments

If you ask any frequent traveller to Melbourne what is the best way to store your clothes, they will all agree that rolling them is the most practical option. This is far more convenient than following any guide on how to fold your clothes correctly. Rolling also reduces the amount of space they take up and makes wrinkles less likely to appear. So you can store more clothes in one box and not have to iron them before putting them back in your closet.

Carry all your essential documents with you

Birth certificates, passports, bank account statements, and other similar documents fall into this category. If your documents are small enough to fit into a single box, pack them in one of a suitable size and load them into your car. Depending on your needs, you may need to consider the packing and office removal services in Melbourne if you run your own home business or have a private practice. Remember that such services are usually insured.
