Packing boxes to move to your
mini storage in Manhattan can be a hassle. However, packing, moving, and storing boxes doesn’t
have to be as difficult as some would imagine. There are various things
you can keep in mind while packing boxes to make the move easier. Read
the following tips and tricks to make the packing and storage process a breeze.
Remember that Weight Matters
Big boxes with heavy items, like books, often make moving a lot harder.
Lifting heavy boxes not only poses a risk of possible injury, but also
increases the risk of the box breaking. To make the job easier for yourself
or your movers,
pack heavier items into small boxes and lightweight items into the big boxes. Indicate on the outside of the
box if it is heavy to warn anyone who picks it up. No matter what is in
a box or how much it weighs, be sure to tape it well.
Take Care of Breakables
If you are packing breakables, such as dishes or glasses, it is a good
idea to wrap each piece with packing paper. Next, bundle a few pieces
together with more paper. It is advised to pack dishes upright on their
sides, rather than flat, and remember that you can never use too much
padding. Indicate fragile items to movers, and be aware of any special
treatment that a belonging might require.
Pack Boxes By Room
With unlabeled boxes scattered everywhere, it can be impossible to tell
what is inside or where a box belongs. To avoid this and make packing
quicker, simply pack your boxes room by room before moving them to your
storage facility. Keep like items together and think about how you would
later unpack the boxes. Then, write the name of the specific room on the
outside of the box to keep track of it in the future. Consider also writing
a description of the contents so you know what you have packed.
