Packing up your life is one of the most stressful things that you can do but what is even more stressful is unpacking once you move into your new home. If you don’t pack smart, unpacking can not only take weeks, but also wear you out. As your local moving company, we thought that we would share with you some packing tips to help your move go as smoothly as possible.


When it comes to packing, you need the four essentials, markers, labels, boxes and tape. Having everything right where you need it will help you save time and money. We recommend that you have good quality, multi-colored, permanent and waterproof markers that will withstand anything that comes your way. You can also find great, printable moving box labels on the internet that are free or you can buy them at your local Office Depot. Using these labels will make it easier for you to determine in which room each box goes.


Choosing a different color marker for each room is one of the simplest and easiest things you can do for yourself. For example, using blue for your bedroom and green for the kitchen will help decipher the contents of each box when you get into your new home.


Some boxes need to be emptied before others. Just because you know that a box is supposed to go in the kitchen, doesn’t mean that you know what is in it. You may need coffee mugs before you need your pots and pans and you will just waste time opening all of the boxes looking for a single mug. By listing what items are in the box, you can save yourself a lot of time.

We hope that these moving tips have helped you prepare for your move. Whether you are moving across town or across the country, Out Of The Box Moving Solutions wants to help you. Call us today.
