When people think about the stress of packing up and moving homes, they pay so much attention to the kitchen – as they should – but often forget how difficult it is to pack clothes.
One too many people have said, “Oh, I’ll just lump them together real quick and call one of the moving companies in Regina to cart it to the new house.”
If only it were that simple.
Clothes might not look so difficult to pack until you start packing and then unpacking.
If packing isn’t done right, then unpacking would be a nightmare. Therefore it is essential to have a good packing pattern to make the process seamless and less stressful.
Here are 5 packing tips compiled from past movers to make packing easy
- Pack Each Category of Clothes Differently
Just like sectioning and packing your kitchen utensils in different boxes, pack your clothes together according to category.
Pack your work clothes together but in a different suitcase or box. Put your party dresses separately from casual and sleep wears.
One, it’ll save you time when unpacking since you don’t need to sort them out. Also, if you eventually unpack your clothes much later than you anticipated, you won’t have a hard time figuring out where each cloth category cloth.
- Use Your Drawers
Rather than pack up your drawers only to repack when you arrive at your new home, just seal the drawers’ tops and move them.
When you get to your new place, you don’t have to unpack
- Let Go of Some Clothes
Deep in the murky depths of your wardrobe are clothes you would most likely never wear again.
Don’t pack these items.
Create two piles of clothes and choose what you would be packing. As for the rest, you can give it out to people who need them.
It may be difficult to choose what should go with you and what shouldn’t. Here’s an easy tip on figuring that out.
Pack what you intend to wear and can still wear. Anything that doesn’t fall within this category should be left behind.
- Invest in Garment Bags
Other than getting some garment bags, how else did you plan to move your fancy gowns and clothes without running the risk of damages?
Garment bags would keep them protected and easy to move.
- Get Suitcases
Suitcases are a whole lot better than cardboard boxes. If, for some reason, they get exposed to the elements, they aren’t going to soak up water and mess up your clothes.
Secondly, if you get to unpacking much later than you wanted to do, you won’t have to contend with brown cardboard boxes taking up space. Suitcases would look a whole lot better than unpacked cardboard boxes.
Even though they cost more than cardboard boxes, you can use suitcases for many things, including travelling. So investing in cardboard boxes won’t be a bad idea at all.
- Hire a Moving company
No doubt, taking clothes off their hangers, packing, and hanging again seems like a strenuous task. With moving companies in Regina, however, you won’t have to do this.
A professional mover will typically provide wardrobe boxes with a hanger bar across the top. As the mover loads your other boxes onto the truck, you can immediately put your clothes in the wardrobe boxes. Afterward, you can remove them and hang them back up at your new home.
