Packing for a MoveBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

Packing is not easy for all. It can be challenging to get going, or to have any idea where to begin. You may want to do your own packing however find the undertaking really daunting once you start with the 1st box. How can you get your whole house into boxes and then loaded into a single moving truck? If you are not certain how to start, when you should get started, or how to pack your belongings - you are in the ideal place.

From managing your first move to packing when you are too stressed to think, these easy tips from professional movers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City can help you commence setting one carton on top of another until your house is packed and ready to go.

Start out with Cartons and a Permanent Marker

Start with that first carton. Get a bunch of 'Medium' packing boxes and a permanent marker. Start with the rooms you use least, like the attic or den. Clear cabinets into boxes (with padding, if needed) and label the carton for its contents. And then start another box. And then another. Empty your off-season garments straight into one box and your backup toiletries straight into another. Clear your books and desk drawers into one box and your less used kitchen pots and pans in yet another.

One carton at a time, label by label, your residence is going to get packed up.

Break Up Your Packing into Manageable Pieces

If perhaps packing the whole residence seems like a large undertaking, break it up. Pack your home office first, or all things in your bedroom closet you don't use regularly. Pack up your storage areas, they're actually half-packed anyway. Section your residence into areas, leaving your most-used things for last. Undertake packing one evening and weekend at a stretch and congratulate yourself on reaching goals.

Dispose of Belongings You Do Not Need

Moving is the perfect time to purge your belongings of whatever you have no need for or don't want to bring together with you. Those shirts you won't ever put on, the cookware you don't ever prepare food with, or the household furniture too worn out to be worth the moving truck space can get kicked to the curb or - better yet - donate them. There might be a young couple who really needs a well used sturdy couch or possibly a family who could possibly really make use of that extra bed.

Eliminate things you have no need for. Anything you will not miss in the new house is a candidate to lessen your load and minimize the amount you'll need to pack.

Allow Enough Time

If you aren't a professional mover in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, start early. The majority of people are not able to pack their home over a long weekend, or even over three or four weekends. Therefore, allow ample lead-up time for you to pack the house - and acknowledge when it is time to bring in the moving company reinforcements should you just don't make adequate headway before your moving date gets near. This is typical, not everyone is a packing machine.
