We also offer professionals packing tips and guidelines as part of our packing services NYC
Packing can seem like one of the most tedious and stressful jobs when it comes to residential moving NYC. You’ll likely wonder where you got so much stuff in the first place. You might even consider not taking it all with you. Don’t let your own pile of ‘stuff’ overwhelm you. It all took a long time to get into one place, so there’s no need to expect that you can pack it all up in a matter of a day or two.
When you’re moving to New York City, chances are you want to make as few trips as possible between your old home and your new place. Between traffic, pedestrians, and flights of stairs (especially if you’re dealing with an apartment) making multiple trips just isn’t efficient, or a good use of your time and energy. Check out these helpful packing tips to use when you’re planning your move, and turn your packing experience into a (somewhat) stress-free event.
Pack Items like Groceries
You wouldn’t put a watermelon on top of a carton of eggs in the same grocery bags, would you? The same goes for your home items – you’ll find things are easier to lift and fit in one box if you pack heavier items first (at the bottom) and gradually get lighter toward the top. Also, put heavier boxes into a moving truck first, so you can pluck out the light ones when you get to your destination.
Don’t Mix Rooms
This may not seem like a big deal while you’re packing, but when you’re unpacking, it will save a lot of stress. Make sure you pack items from one room at a time, instead of mixing up items from different rooms. That way, you can designate each box with its own room when you’re ready to unpack, and it will make the entire process go by much quicker!
Bundle Up Your Breakables
Take the time to learn how to package up your breakable items. For example, you should always place dishes on their sides, instead of laying them down flat, and cups and bowls can be stacked inside of each other. The key with breakables is to try to ensure they are as ‘safe’ as can be. This can be done by filling in gaps with towels, packing paper, tape, etc. Breakable items can end up being heavy in a box on their own, so don’t be afraid to separate them into two or three boxes, but try to keep them together as much as you can.
Use The Right Size!
Make sure you’re using the proper sizes of boxes when you’re backing. Heavier items should go in smaller boxes, while lighter items can go in bigger ones since more can fit without a lot of weight.
Packing paper or bubble wrap – which is better to use when packing?
When it comes to packing away your items, knowing the right type of medium is crucial. The usage of packing paper and bubble wrap has its own benefits and downsides. Let’s take a look at what each of them can offer before you make a decision on using them for your packing purposes.
Pros and Cons of using bubble wrap
Bubble wrap is considered to be one of the best inventions for packing away supplies. The bubbles on the wrap provide an extra cushion when packing away fragile items such as books, kitchen dishes, and DVDs. It is also useful for protecting large items, such as electronics. One of the confusing aspects when using bubble wrap is to whether or not if the bubbles should be placed inward or outward.
Considering that you want to provide enough cushion for the items without breaking during the transportation process, you’re better off turning them inside out when packing away your items. The nice thing about bubble wrap is that it doesn’t take up too much space when using them to wrap your items. You can secure each of the items in bubble wrap and place a tape to keep them in place during transportation
A major downside with bubble wrap is the inability to recycle. Some companies do provide an eco-friendly version. However, it can be more costly especially if you’re planning to use the bubble wrap as a one-time solution for your packing needs. Additionally, if your items are packed within bubble wrap and is transported to an area where the climate is humid, there’s a good chance that the bubble wrap will melt onto the items.
Pros and Cons of using wrapping paper
Wrapping paper is easily accessible to anyone, compared to bubble wrap. A misconception about packing paper is that it’s equated to newspapers. While newspapers can easily fit the budget, you’ll run into risk with the ink bleeding through your items and on your hands. Packing paper does not have any printed ink and is much stronger than using newspaper. Additionally, packing paper is easily recyclable since it takes less time for the breakdown process to occur. When using packing paper, it’s a good idea to line the boxes before packing away your items.
Compared to using newspapers, packing paper can be easily crumbled up and placed inside the boxes as a means to provide additional shock protection. This comes in handy when transporting your items from one area to another. Just like bubble wrap, packing paper is also good to use when wrapping fragile items. You can place sheets of packing paper in between the items to prevent any breakage. Since packing paper holds its shape well, there’s no need to use tape when sealing your items. Assuming that you’re careful in making sure that they’re well covered without any slips in between, of course.
One of the downsides with wrapping paper is that it can bulk up your boxes and leave little room to store your items. Be mindful on how much paper you use when you wrap them before placing them in the box. If you’re traveling to an area where it’s mostly rainy, be mindful of the fact that your packing paper is not meant to be waterproof. Too much water when exposed to the element will result in leaving the boxes and packing paper very soggy. And this leaves every bit of chance for your items to be damaged.
