Packing Tips


    When it comes time to move, you will need solid packing tips and an experienced apartment finder to help find the perfect apartment. Finding an apartment on your own can be challenging and time consuming. Using the services of an apartment finder, your moving will be much easier. If you are not sure where to start, ask other people you know that recently moved, or family and friends if they know of a reputable apartment finder. You want an apartment finder that will help you find the perfect apartment when you need it.

    Good packing tips will make your move less frustrating and probably less breakage of personal items. We have put some packing tips together for you that will keep your possessions safe and make your move easier. First, always use proper packing material. While it may be tempting to use boxes that you find behind the local grocer, proper materials are designed for moving. For a great deal, visit All where you can find any size box needed. You might also ask your apartment finder if they can provide recommendations for good moving boxes and other supplies.

    An additional packing tip is to pack only one room at a time with each box properly labeled. After you arrive at your new apartment found by the apartment finder, you will be glad you took the time to do this when it comes time to find something. Simply reading the label, you can place each box in the proper room and know exactly what needs to be unpacked first. Another packing tip is to keep any valuable items such as jewelry, family heirlooms, or collectibles, or loose items in a separate box with everything clearly marked in a see-through bag. If you are using a moving company, keep this box aside to take in your own car.

    Always pack heavier items into smaller boxes to make the move easier and use your blankets, towels, and rugs to wrap your more valuable breakables. Another important packing tip often forgotten is to take your old phone book. This will be a huge help when you want to call old friends without spending a fortune on directory assistance calls.

    Another valuable packing tip is to not to pack anything that is flammable or heat sensitive such as candles, video tapes, propane tanks, paints, and so on. Since moving companies usually load up several families at a time, you could be the last on their scheduled deliveries, meaning your things will sit in a hot truck longer. Bing a box or suitcase of personal items such as pajamas, change of clothing, toilet paper, pet food, medicine, and coffee and coffee pot. This will last until your moving van arrives with all your belongings... Once you arrive at your new apartment, be sure to make a quick phone call to the apartment finder letting them know you arrived safely.
