You can either pack everything yourself or pay extra for your moving company to do it. Either way, you want to make sure that you don’t leave anything behind. Once you move, you usually can’t retrieve any items you forgot to take with you, and you may have to pay cleaning or trash fees for removal of these items!
Packing all of your belongings requires the purchase of boxes, packing tape and bubble wrap, as well as taking the time and effort to pack everything safely and securely. Make sure that you don’t over pack boxes, as the bottoms may fall out or they may be difficult to carry. After packing each box, label it with a magic marker. Your label should say which room the items belong in. This will help your movers to put the items in the correct room when they unload the truck for you. Move each box into your living room as you finish packing it. That way, when the movers come on moving day, they can easily see what needs to go.
