Master the Art of Packing With Our Movers


Packing is a crucial aspect of any move, and doing it efficiently can save you time, effort, and ensure the safety of your belongings. At Great Plains Moving and Storage, we understand the challenges that come with packing for a move. That's why we're here to share our expert tips to help you master the art of packing. With these essential tips, you can streamline the packing process and ensure a smooth transition to your new home.


1. Start Early and Create a Plan:

Begin the packing process as early as possible to avoid last-minute stress. Create a comprehensive plan that outlines each room and the items that need to be packed. Breaking down the task into smaller, manageable steps will make the process more organized and efficient.


2. Gather Packing Supplies:

Ensure you have all the necessary packing supplies before you start. This includes sturdy boxes in various sizes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and markers for labeling. Having everything on hand will prevent unnecessary delays and allow for a seamless packing experience.


3. Declutter and Donate:

Before packing, take the opportunity to declutter and get rid of items you no longer need or use. Separate your belongings into three categories: keep, donate, and discard. This not only reduces the number of items you need to pack but also allows you to start fresh in your new home.


4. Pack Room by Room:

To stay organized, pack one room at a time. Start with the rooms you use the least and gradually move on to the more frequently used areas. Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking at your new home much easier and more efficient.


5. Protect Fragile Items:

When packing fragile items, wrap them individually in bubble wrap or packing paper. Use extra padding, such as towels or clothing, to fill any gaps within the boxes and prevent movement. Clearly mark these boxes as fragile to ensure they are handled with care during the move.


6. Pack Essentials Separately:

Pack a separate box or suitcase with essential items you'll need immediately upon arrival at your new home. This can include toiletries, a change of clothes, important documents, and any necessary electronics or chargers. Having these essentials easily accessible will make the first day in your new home more comfortable.


7. Seek Professional Assistance:

If you prefer to leave the packing to the experts, consider hiring professional packing services.
