However easy it may seem, moving you home is not that easy and straightforward. The most time-consuming task when you are moving your home is packing your stuff. When you are moving internationally, then it becomes all the more perplexing to decide what you need to keep and what not, and how to properly organize the items for full safety through the long-distance transportation.
Creating a checklist will definitely help. Here we provide you with some important tips on how to make your move from UK to Europe with properly organised packing:
- Create an Inventory
Write down a list of things that needs to be packed, room-wise, which must be ticked-off when you are done completing the packing of that specific item or room stuff.
- Start Early
For organised and effective packing, it is better to start early. Make sure to start packing the items that you won’t use in immediate and leave the essential daily-use items for the last, like your kitchen items. Make sure you pack smart, in a way that you keep on with your daily routines for the last few days at the current place.
- Sell or Donate What You Won’t Along
Check through your home stuff thoroughly and pick out those items which you won’t use at the new place, or you can buy a replacement for them, or is just unnecessary to carry along. Sell the remaining items in your local market or donate these items to a charity or ask in your circle if someone is in need of those items.
- Source the Right Size Box
The packing is as good as you source the packing boxes. Depending on your stuff, source the right-size packing boxes as you would be able to find a lot of options. Also, make sure that boxes are of high quality, and are taped in a robust way after you are done packing to keep your stuff safe and damage-free.
- Keep Fragile Items Separately
For a long-distance move, packing of fragile items in a secured and safe manner is of utmost importance. Get the right size box, keep a payer of soft cushioning at the bottom, then the item, and then cover it up with another layer of soft cushioning. Ensure you do not leave any space which can create chances of impact higher.Make sure that you don’t waste any space, it not only becomes unorganized leading to breakage chances but also loss of space. Remembering the small details is vital, like every box must be clearly labelled for convenient unpacking at the new place, and make sure to keep your important documents, identification papers, cards and similar items with you in a carry-on luggage.
