Whether you are planning out a local move or moving across the country, figuring out what to pack and what to get rid of is a necessary process that everyone must go through. To help you in your packing decisions, WestPac International, the experts of moving and storage, have come up with these tips:
If you haven’t used it in more than a year, get rid of it: It is natural for people to acquire a lot of possessions over time, but when you are moving, the fewer things you have to pack up the better. If there is some clothing in the back of your closet that you forgot you even owned or an appliance that is simply sitting in a cabinet gathering dust, sell it or give it to charity. You’ll be a lot less stressed once you realize how much less stuff the moving services will have to ship.
When thinking about things to keep, try to stick to the essentials: As you start to pack, consider in the back of your mind what you actually need to take with you and what can be easily replaced. While it’s more than likely you are going to want to bring your bed and furniture with you, it is a lot simpler to buy a new refrigerator and shelving when you get to your destination. If it doesn’t have sentimental value and you think it will be a pain to move, don’t try.
