The key to a successful move is properly packed things. In this regard, it is worth considering the right sequence of packing your belongings and furniture. In this article, you will find some helpful tips on how to do it right.
Best Packing Sequence: Useful Tips
Before calling the Los Angeles movers company, you may be interested in packing things yourself to save some costs on your moving. To pack things as quickly as possible, it is necessary to adhere to a certain order:
1) Bed linen and towels
First of all, it is necessary to pack bedclothes and towels, which should be put into bags. They must be appropriately signed because they will be needed first.
A stack of books should include no more than 15-20 pieces. All piles should be carefully wrapped with paper, the free space in the box should be filled with paper or cloth. Seal every box with tape.
3) Shoes and clothes
These things should be packed in large travel bags, suitcases, packing bags, etc. If there are items that are undesirable to wrinkle, you should use special covers made of plastic or fabric. These covers will help you transport things without rumpling them.
4) Kitchen utensils
Kitchen utensils must be packed in thick cardboard. At the bottom of the box, you need to place a layer of bubble wrap. It is also necessary to fill all the spaces in the box with the same material. If there are some hollow places left when packing the dishes, there is a very high chance that they will not arrive at their new location safely.
Furniture must be disassembled into parts and put in large boxes, sealed with tape. You will need to allocate a bag for small accessories because they are often lost when moving. It is advisable to put cardboard sheets on the bottom of those boxes in which the furniture is packed. Cover glass parts of furniture, mirrors, and paintings with cloth and air-bubble wrap.
6) Large equipment and technique
All equipment is packed last in the list of things. A refrigerator must be completely defrosted at least 24 hours before moving. For large equipment, it is necessary to know its weight so that the movers can place it correctly in the car. The best way to transport household appliances is to pack them in their factory boxes, in which they were purchased. It is imperative to pack the equipment, securing it with foam. Alternatively, you can use the air bubble wrap.
All the boxes in which appliances and utensils are packed must be signed on all sides. Movers may damage things (especially fragile and household appliances) during their loading and unloading. If the things or household appliances are marked, the movers will not make a mistake, and breakage or damage of things will be less possible.
