Top 5 reasons why you should start packing early

Packing for a move involves a lot of processes: preparing suppliers, sorting your stuff, and others. It took a lot of time, so don’t leave everything to the last minute. Some people leave packing for the last day before moving and that may cause some incidents. When people are in a hurry, they make a lot of mistakes, they can lose, forget or break something. To have an opportunity to pack your belongings in peace, you should start preparing early.

Either you are going to hire professional packers or do everything by yourself, you need to start packing early. Here are 5 reasons why.

You will give yourself a greater chance to finish packing on time

The first reason is obvious — timing. It is very stressful to pack your property if you are in a hurry. And it is even more stressful to not have enough time to finish your packing before the moving day.

You can never know how much time will you need to pack everything you have. You can face problems and new tasks while packing. Professionals always know the appropriate time they need to pack a particular amount of stuff. They have rich experience and they are trained to pack belongings fast.

Since you are not a professional packer, you need more time to pack stuff and you need to have some spare time.

You will give yourself more time to make the right decisions

The more time you have, the better you will analyze any situation. The essential part of packing is to make a plan and decide what items will you pack first and what stuff you should put in boxes right before the departure. You also have to analyze the approximate amount of stuff to understand how many supplies you have to buy.

It is crucial not to skip sorting your possessions. When you get rid of stuff you don’t need, you also:

  • make less amount of boxes, so it will be more convenient to transport them;
  • lower the price of moving, because the less stuff you have, the less price is;
  • save space in the new home.

When you see things you haven’t used for a long time, you probably don’t really need them. It is better to donate these items to social centers or children’s houses. You also can sell stuff you don’t need.

You will need more than one day to manage it all. That’s why it is better to start packing early. People who lack time often make incorrect decisions.

You may have time to organize a profitable moving sale

After you finish sorting your belongings, you will have a list of things you don’t need. It definitely will include items in good condition. For example clothes, small appliances, and small furniture. You don’t need to drive somewhere far away to get rid of them. You can organize a garage sale.

To organize a garage sale properly you will need time. So, you have to start sorting and packing quite early to get everything done before the moving day. Your successful garage sale will give you a chance to earn some money. You will have to pay movers anyway, so you can reduce the price a bit.

You will have enough time to pack your things in the safest way possible

If you don’t want to arrive at a new place, open your boxes, and see broken belongings, you should protect them during packing. To pack glasses, porcelain, expensive clothes, and paintings is not enough just to put them in boxes. To pack fragile items you have to cover each of them with packing paper or plastic wrap and then carefully put them in the boxes. Pay attention to empty spaces in the boxes, you should fill them with crumpled paper. A professional packer can do this work in a few hours. You probably will not have time to do all these. Or if you decide to pack everything carefully, you will risk not finishing on time.

You will save money by not having to hire pro-Packers

If you start packing early, you will not need to hire professional packers. You will have time to analyze your tasks, plan how to do them, and do your work. You will pack your property carefully without worrying about time. It means that instead of hiring pro packers you can save money and spend them on activities you like.
