Start Packing Early!

Movers New Orleans

It's no surprise that moving to a new home can be a stressful process. To reduce this stress, it’s a good idea to start packing your items early. Here are some benefits to packing ASAP.

It Keeps You Organized
Rushing through the packing process doesn’t give you enough time to properly label your moving boxes. It seems fine at first but when you arrive at your new home, it will leave you in utter confusion trying to figure out where everything goes.

When you pack your items early, you are more likely to organize and label boxes correctly. This gives you plenty of time to look over all your items and pack similar items in the same boxes, making them easier to unpack when you arrive at your new home. This little bit of extra organization will save you hours later.

Clean While You Pack
Packing your items early gives you time to properly clean while you pack. You know that closet that you haven’t touched in years? Packing early gives you time to throw away or donate those items you don’t want anymore, instead of wasting your time packing and moving them.

Throw away trash and broken toys, donate old clothes, and sell those hard-to-find items you’ve been holding onto for years. Cleaning while packing can help lighten the load to your new home and save you money with the moving company. Who knows, you might make a buck in the process!

Enlist the Help of Friends and Family
Most people dread packing before a move but packing early can be a fun experience! When you set aside extra time, you can enlist the help of friends and family. Instead of rushing yourself and throwing everything into random boxes, pack early and throw a packing party. You’ll have plenty of time to direct your helpers, enjoy each other’s company, and chat while you work.

If you want to keep your move stress-free and fun, it’s important to pack your items early. Six weeks before your move is a good timeframe, but don’t hesitate to start ASAP. The earlier you start packing your items, the smoother the transition will be to your new place!
