Tips to Pack your Luggage

By | September 30, 2009

Are you moving to a new apartment and waiting for packing the luggage, then you have two better choices one is to pack for your self and other is to hire any professional packers. Not interested in hiring and trying to pack by yourself- Yes this is what I did when I was shifting to a new apartment. So you need to follow certain things in packing your luggage. They are: Gather packing supplies before you start packing such as boxes, tapes to cover those boxes etc. Keep an inventory list of each box and its contents that you are going to pack. And keep a box labeled. Load something that is very essential for you at the end so that you can easily take when you need them. This is easier than sorting out all those pieces after your move. After all packing by yourself saves your time. Insist on keeping things together when you or the movers are packing boxes. Keep bookends with books, light bulbs with lamps, and extension cords with appliances, shelf brackets with a bookcase, a special wrench and bolts with the wall unit. Keep larger corresponding items in lock bags, and tape these to the underside or back of the item. As a backup, have a box open on the kitchen counter and fill it with cables, cords, parts, pieces, brackets, or nails that are removed from any items of furniture. Keep this box with you, or mark it well with a rainbow of colored stickers so it can be easily located on move-in day. After this is done load the luggage into truck or van and Get started now! It’s never too late to plan, sort and start packing.
