Apartment moving tips and tricks
April 26, 2018
Moving to a new apartment is something most of us go through at some point in our lives. And whether you move to a larger apartment or to a smaller one, the entire process can be exhausting. Luckily, Empire Movers can offer you a few tips you can use to save time next time you move.
Free moving boxes are useful
When moving, you often have a lot of completely unexpected and unnecessary costs. Moving boxes are included here. But why pay for them when you can get these items for free? Just check out clothing and grocery stores, or the Craigslist free section.
Pack clothes together with hangers
To save time and space, just leave the clothes on the hangers and fold them together. Afterwards, use plastic wrap. You can unfold and rehang the clothes later, after the moving process is finished.
Use drawers as moving boxes
Again, plastic wrap comes in handy here. Don’t empty your drawers. Just wrap them in plastic and you’re all set.
Keeping organized is one of the hardest things to do when moving. If you want to find things easily, just use color-coding. This system will allow you to find out fast where each box has to go and what’s in it.
Pack plates vertically
Broken dishes are something every mover dreads. If you want to avoid it, just pack your plates vertically, like records.
Put towels and sheets to good use
Instead of packing them and having them take up space, use them for other things, such as wrapping fragile items. This way, you save a lot of money on bubble wrap.
Soap will fill the holes in your walls
Not the big ones. But the they’ll do the job for the small ones. Just rub the hole with the soap bar until it’s filled. This way, you’ll save some money.
Pack your TV
It’s always hard to move your TV. These types of items can be very fragile. That’s why it’s so important to wrap them in towels or to build a custom box for it. But remember to keep your flat screen sitting upright.
