Common packing mistakes to avoid

Moving is among the most stressful tasks we will ever have to perform, but the fact is that it is almost inevitable that at some point in our life we will have to move.  There are a number of mistakes related to packing that are quite commonly made during the process of relocation.  In order to reduce the number of mistakes made to an absolute minimum, it is vital that you should plan out the things that you have to do and stick to this plan strictly.

Unelaborated planning is one common packing mistake made during a move.  The process of planning is by necessity quite slow and is not something that should be rushed through.  Every single step should be run through and you should do one room in its entirety before moving on to the next.

Nothing should be skipped and details should be written down stating precisely what has to be and has been done, enabling anyone who takes a look at your plan to have no difficulty in understanding it.

Packing late is another common mistake.  Many people actually plan to conclude their packing on moving day itself, which is a big mistake.  Changes that take place at the last minute can wreak havoc on your plans and cause even more difficulties.  Things may then be forgotten, and rushing can lead to accidental damage to your possessions.  A buffer of at least two days is advisable so that you will be able to confirm multiple times that everything has been done.
