Packing up your house can be a mammoth task; however, it is one that you do not have to do on your own. It can be very tempting to try to do everything yourself simply because you want to be in control of the process; however, this often means spending weeks and months before the move knee deep in boxes. You can save time during the process by bringing in a few extra hands.
First of all, make sure that everybody who lives in the house is contributing to the packing for a house move. There is no point panicking about packing up your teenager’s room when there is a teenager there who is perfectly capable of packing up their own possessions. This can save you a lot of time and enable you to get on with other tasks.
You also have the option of bringing in friends and family to help out. Some people choose to hold a packing party, where they give everybody something to eat and drink, a few boxes, tape and packing materials and set them to work on tasks such as packing up the DVD and CD collection. This can help to dramatically reduce the overall workload.
Don’t forget that your moving company will also provide a packing service, which can really reduce your workload. The professionals simply come in on the day of the move and do everything for you. At the very least you can get your packing materials from your moving company, as the supplies will be of good quality and will represent good value for money.
