HOW TO PACK PROPERLY

If you move your life from one home to the next, a pile of shit is the last thing you want to see when you unpack the boxes. Whether it’s wedding giveaways and crystal glass, or your grandparents’ beloved heirlooms – some things in our possession cannot be paid for with money and can never be replaced if they break during the move.

1. Start packing in time

The packing of the belongings usually takes longer than one thinks - and is often more complicated. Too often, the time is moving or they run out of patience and they throw everything into a box, taping it all in tape and closing time. Damage is far more likely if you postpone wrapping until the last moment. Avoid unnecessary shards by packing your belongings well before the move - Moving Company Los Angeles recommends making one room per day ready to move. These materials need you to start.

2. Pack each piece individually

It may seem obvious, but you should pack each fragile item individually to avoid breakage. Packing porcelain and glass together leads to clashing and finally breaking off the pieces. Even with fragile ones, which consists of several parts - teapots, for example - you should wrap each part one by one.

3. Attention to unevenly shaped parts

When packaging, remember also the shape, size, and weight of the pieces to be packed. Even protruding parts such as handles and cannon noses break easily. Therefore, wind such objects completely in bubble wrap, which you tape with tape afterward. If you want to be extra careful, protect what is still there with rolled-up paper. It should be wrapped around the handles and noses.

4. Packing in several levels

When you pack smaller pieces in boxes, boxing in layers is a good idea. First, fill the bottom of the box with crumpled paper. Then place the heavier and less prone to breakage parts well packed. Once the first layer is complete, all gaps are padded with padding. Another protective layer of the crumpled paper follows before the next layer of objects follows. Repeat this process until the carton is full.

5. Invest in proper packaging material

It may seem tempting to save money by using old towels, paper towels, blankets, and newspaper lying around to pack his fragile belongings. In the end, however, the resulting damage could cost you more. The printing ink from newsprint can rub off and kitchen paper is too thin to be used as wrapping paper. Instead of being frugal in the small and ultimately wasteful, you prefer to invest in a professional packaging material such as bubble wrap, air cushion, wrapping paper and polystyrene balls.

6. Choose the right boxes

When it comes to moving boxes, bigger is not always better. Choosing the wrong box size has its own problems and accidentally grabbing too big or too small boxes is a common mistake that can damage your otherwise immaculate possessions. For heavy, fragile and large objects, you should choose a box that sits like a glove on your object. There should be enough room left for sufficient padding. But again not so much play that the item is moving around in the moving box.

7. Leave no room

Any space in the box should be stuffed with paddings like paper and polystyrene beads. Smaller pieces of clothing or socks and underwear are also suitable for this. Your items should never have room in the carton, as any movement could cause bursting and splitting. To see if it has been packaged properly at the end, you can carefully perform the Shake Test. If you still hear or feel any movement inside the box, it is better to reopen the box before transport to add more padding.

8. Mark your boxes

Labeling the boxes is a simple way to avoid breakage. After gluing the boxes, mark with an arrow which side is the top. Also, an indication of the fragility of the content may be helpful, should that be true. That can easily happen with markers. However, you could also invest in 'Caution Fragile!' Tape to make sure your hint is not overlooked. After all, your relocation helpers are only human.
