Are you moving out of your old house? Are you finding yourself to be a novice when it comes to moving? Don’t worry, this piece would help you with simple tips to make your move an easy one.

We all try DIY to make any kind of work simple and cost-effective. You can also use DIYs to generate less waste and more productive work. This means you will be moving out of your house in an eco-friendly way within budget. All you have to do is use what you already have.

This way you won’t have to shift an extra load to your new house. So, just follow some of the packing tips for your DIY move and save extra money and energy.

Start early

Once you find a place to shift, you have approx. one month in your hand to pack. During this time, you need to sort your moving into different levels. If you start early with your plan to shift the household to a new city, then things will get more sorted and easier.

If you can start to go through the things four weeks prior to the date of moving. Seasonal clothes and decorations can be sorted first and packed to be kept aside. Remember everything sorted earlier means one thing less to do on the day when packers and movers charges in Bangalore of the city arrive.

Sort, Stack, and Sell

Once you have gone through your stuff, its best to sort out all the things that you won’t be needing anymore. These things you need to get them sorted and stack them. Later you can either sell them off or give it to the local charity organisations.

You can schedule drop-offs and pick-ups to the charity organisations, so that your things are put to a good use. If you want to resell your clothes or other gadgets then its best to post those items in sites such as Etsy, eBay, Etashee, OLX.

While stacking if you come across everyday items then its best to keep them marked and set it for the day before you are finally going to move. Pack them up in an easy to access container to avoid confusion.

Protect fragile items

The delicate items need to be taken care of in the early phase of packing. This will save you a lot of time. in case of handling breakable items such as crockery and wall hangings you can use old socks. They fit easily and is comfortable to carry. You can insulate these items by using blankets, cushion, bedding, and towels as the filler so that, they don’t break while shifting to a new place.

If you are running short of these fillers, then try using bubble that occasionally come with the courier. If that is not enough then you can always use those old newspapers kept in the corner of your storage place. These newspapers can be easily recycled once you move to your new place.

Pack your plates side to side like what you do in the dishwasher, instead of stacking one over the other. This way the chances of breaking these plates during the move lessens.

The decorative pieces can be packed several weeks before the packers and movers knock on your door. These can be very tricky to store as they are oddly shaped and fragile. It is very important to figure out how to cushion them properly so that, they won’t break.

Your walls may seem blank but in the long run, when you are shifting you will find this to be a good idea. You can use bubble wraps, newspaper to keep these valuable delicate items safe.

Moving furniture & electronics

Another crucial item in your list of moving items list is furniture. They are heavy, bulky and not the easiest of things to move. They can’t be packed and stacked prior to your shifting day, but you can keep the things inside them organised.

Label all the cords, cables, nuts and screws of all the furniture and electronic gadgets. You can place them inside plastic bags individually. This way you can place them yourself at your new place.

Prepare your new home

Use what you have

It’s always start with what you have for packing. If you have less things, then you can use your suitcases, large containers, duffel bags, and laundry baskets that are already available with you. This way you can cut the cost and minimise waste.

If you are thinking about those never-ending stacks of clothes, then you can keep them in the drawers of the dresser. You can keep them in place using a plastic wrap or Press’n Seal.

To pack hanging clothes, you can use heavy duty trash bags. All you have to do is tie the hangers together with the string and stuff all the clothes in the bag.

Stay organised

When it comes to packing your belongings, it is very important to stay organised. If not, you won’t remember which box has what things. It comes in very handy while unloading. So, once you commence packing, simultaneously label the boxes, things packed inside.

If you have the map of your new place, then you can also name the box according to the room it will be going to be put. This makes unloading and unpacking far easier.

You can also use discarded ribbons or coloured packing tapes to easily track down which box belongs to which of the rooms. You can use labels and colors to help packers and movers Bangalore to Delhi in the city to know if the box contains heavy or fragile items.

Number your boxes and keep a track of all your belongings. This helps in tracking the boxes in your new place. Once you understand a number is missing it becomes easier to track if it was lost during the move and you can find it quickly.

Always keep an overnight bag with you to track whatever you need while you are on the move.

Things to use make your own DIY packing materials:

Get Cheap or Free Packing Supplies

To get good packing material you can pay a visit to the closest liquor store. Generally, liquor stores recycle their boxes, if you can get your hand on some that would be great. You can use these boxes to move your belongings with much care.

All you have to do is look for boxes and cardboard containers that are gently worn. They can be used to hold lightweight items such as towels, linens etc. If you use ripped boxes, then you may end up breaking things.

Use original boxes and containers

These boxes are one of the good ways to cut your costs while moving and become environment-friendly on the way out.

You can use the original containers to carry some of your gadgets. Your beloved flat screen and xBox may not be able to withstand to be transported across the country or town in a cardboard box. Being a fragile piece, it needs special care. If you have best packers and movers in the city, then they may charge you a good deal to move them safely and efficiently.

If you are packing them yourself then that may be a problem. Having their original boxes in which you bought them, will be the best way to pack them. You may have stacked them in your storage area. If you don’t have them, then make a list of things to borrow or buy for proper cushioning of the item. Quilts, sturdy tape and bubble wraps will be enough to make it work.

Brainstorm with your family & friends

Brainstorming is an essential part of the move. Before you move, sit with your family or friends to discuss what all you will need to make a smooth transportation of your things. This discussion may take some time, but it will give you a proper insight about how to go about things.

From packing tapes to ziploc bags, extra screws to measuring tape, you may write it all down. Visit your closest hardware store to get things for wholesale rate.

How many times it has happened with you that you have cried over your bottle of spilled shampoo or oil? It is better to take out time to wrap a piece of ziploc bag or saran wrap to keep the contents of the bottle from leaking.

Before the packers and movers come to transport your things its best for you to pack things up if you want to know which stuff is where. This will make things easier for you on the day of shifting. Happy DIY shifting
