Essentials Box

The first item to pack when moving is an essentials box. As part of our professional packing services, we recommend including everyday items you'll need right away in your new home. This box should contain toiletries, medications, important documents, a change of clothes, basic kitchen items, and any essential items specific to your family's needs. Having this box readily accessible upon arrival at your new place can provide a sense of comfort and convenience during the initial transition period.

Seasonal Items

Next, focus on packing seasonal items that you won't need before your move. Our professional packers advise packing away clothing for a different season, holiday decorations, and outdoor gear early in the process. By categorizing and packing seasonal items in advance, you can effectively streamline your packing process and prioritize essential belongings for your move.

Fragile Belongings

When it comes to fragile belongings, our professional packing team emphasizes early and meticulous packing. Items like glassware, ceramics, artwork, and electronics require special care and attention to ensure they arrive safely at your new location. Utilizing high-quality packing materials, such as bubble wrap and sturdy boxes, can safeguard your fragile items throughout the moving journey.

Non-Essential Items

Lastly, our professional packers suggest packing non-essential items that you won't need leading up to your move. Books, extra linens, decor items, and kitchen gadgets fall into this category. By proactively packing non-essential items ahead of time, you can declutter your living space, reduce last-minute packing stress, and focus on organizing essential items for a smooth transition.
