Use Colored Stickers On Boxes

This is so simple but most folks just box and go, maybe write the room on the box with a marker. The problem is you will likely have dozens and dozens of boxes and they may end up in one big pile. Colored stickers help the movers and help you identify by room.

Designate a color for each room in the new home, such as yellow for kitchen, orange for dining room, etc. Apply colored stickers on the box near the box number. In your new home. Put a matching sticker on the door to each room. The movers will know where to put everything when they arrive at the destination. It’s also helpful to post a big sign on the wall in the room where you want boxes stacked, (“Boxes here please”) to keep them out of furniture and traffic areas.

Good Luck and use those stickers.

More Tips On Boxing Your Personal Goods

Packing your moving boxes correctly will save you time and frustration and money as well. Although some folks don’t think too much about packing boxes, come move time you will be glad you did. At Willamette Express we’re to help and answer all your questions, even the ones that seem silly like what is the best way to pack my wardrobe box?

Strategizing wardrobe box use.

A few days before your move, fill some sturdy handled shopping bags with bulky closet items such as shoes, sweaters, belts, and jeans. On moving day, fill the bottom of the wardrobe boxes with some of the shopping bags, then add your hanging clothing. Pack hanging items tightly so things won’t move around and fall off of hangers. Finally, cover the shoulders of your clothes (a dry cleaning bag works well), then add a few purses or sweaters on top. You’ll have fewer boxes, and closet items remain together. Also, the shopping bags will make it easier to retrieve your belongings from the bottoms of a tall wardrobe box.

Good Luck!
