Prepare To Handle With Care
One key tip for packing up is to ensure you have enough packaging materials to protect fragile, expensive, and sentimental items properly so that you have a safe way to transport them later. Having everything you need to get you through the packing process will save you from having to skimp on tape when it runs low or from leaving for a supply run when you've hit your packing stride. A few items you'll need on hand include boxes, tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, and permanent markers. Once you've estimated how much you'll need, add 25%, as it's better to overestimate than to underestimate.
Make Your More Useful Belongings Accessible
After moving into a new residence, the last thing you want is to have to dig through all your packed-up belongings to find the stuff you need right away, like clothes, toiletries, or cookware. So while packing, be sure to put aside your home essentials and store them somewhere easily accessible. This way, you can have all the important items you need just within arms reach. Additionally, you'll want to consider packing overnight bags for yourself, pets, and any family members moving with you. Overnight bags should include all the essentials, including medications, toiletries, electronics, chargers, and other items you require regularly.
Update Your Billing & Shipping Information
You don't want important documents and bills to end up in the wrong place. To avoid this, we recommend submitting a change-of-address request with your local post office. You should also update your billing address and shipping address with your bank and for any services, including monthly subscription boxes, online retailers, and so on. Having your new address saved in a document to copy and paste over makes it easy. Most importantly, contact your utilities and internet providers to cancel services at your former home and activate them in your new one scheduled for moving day.
