Importance of Packages when Moving Home

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 6th 2012 | Views:

Moving homes can be an exciting affair. It means new places to see, new people to interact with, and new cultural outlooks that you may have been yearning to get involved with. But shifting you house can be a real ordeal unless you plan days ahead. To make it as easy as possible plan at least 7 weeks ahead and that includes the Dish TV Packages you had bought and the antennas and set top boxes along. Packing your belongings using the right kind of packaging materials will ensure that you don’t miss something during the journey and you get them undamaged in your new home. The key to making proper packages is using the right kind of boxes. Depending on how big your household is you may even have to hire a full truck or negotiate with a moving company to get your job done. You can entrust most of the task to a moving company, but never be compromising on the materials that will be used for making the packages.

Here are some packing materials you will need to keep handy before you begin making packages. Needless to say label all the packages and attach a small note giving a brief description of its content. That will help you unpack the packages in an orderly fashion and help you arrange your belongings in the right place at your new house. The first packaging material you may have guessed correctly is the boxes. There are specialized companies that understand home movers requirements. They make boxes of all sizes. In fact if you can give them a brief description of the huge wall mount HD television you bought a few days back you can get a box made for that too, of course with all the filler foams included.

Packaging boxes come in a variety of size and capacity. Some of them may be made of papers, wood or a combination of material that will be easy transport. Don’t opt for the heavy one; they will cost you lots of money if your mover is going to charge by weight. The lighter the better, but that again is not a universal rule to follow. Keep plenty of ropes and gum tapes ready to seal the boxes. See that you procure a little more than what you have estimated rather being stingy. After all carrying some packing material to your new home is not a tedious, but losing something you have cherished can be a cause for concern to you and your spouse.

Having a liberal supply of bubble sheets is important too. You will need them most when you move your kitchen stuff. Stuff the boxes with bubble sheet to even out the void; they will help prevent damages that are common while moving household items in trucks. A tape dispenser is a must especially if they are wide. It saves time and material as well. Another piece of time you can never miss is the rope. Keep a liberal supply, you may not need them for packing, but don’t forget that without the ropes moving the packages to the truck is impossible. Keep all stray items like brooms, ski poles, mops and the like a separate box and load them into the truck at the last. You will need them the first thing when you have arrived at your new house.

If you are about to negotiate with a trucking company for the first time in your life, you will need to do some hard bargaining, and find out if they will be buying insurance liability for your belongings. Give them a brief description of the items you are entrusting to them so that they will know beforehand what their liability will be in case of the unforeseen happening.
