A big part of successful move is having your boxes properly labeled. This can help to avoid any confusion and ensure that boxes are moved into the appropriate rooms for unpacking. Most people think that simple writing a room in which this box should go is sufficient. However, when it comes time to unpack, they are going to find that they will have to go through numerous boxes in order to find the objects that they are looking for. Being in business for more than 20 years has allowed us to see numerous ways in which boxes can be labeled for a move. We have compiled what we consider some of the best methods for labeling a box for a move.
Write More than Just the Room
It is vital that you write the room in which the box should go into. However, go a step further and write a list of the items that are found in this box. For example:
· Office: Official paperwork
· Office: Printer, printer ink
· Living Room: Lamp shades, extension cords
· Kitchen: Blender, set of 6 glasses
The more specific that you get, the more likely you are going to be able to find what you want when you want it.
Number Each Box
We highly recommend that each box that is packed is numbered. Start with 1 and go through whatever number you have to in order to get to the total amount of boxes that you have. Then keep a note of how many boxes you have total to move. Upon unpacking these boxes, you can rest assure that you are going to have all your belongings in your new home.
Ensure Labels Stick to the Boxes
One of the biggest issues that people have when they move is that the labels that they attach often come loose and fall off upon moving. If you want to ensure your labels stay attached, use a clear packing tape across these labels. You can also choose to write directly on the box. If you do this, be sure that you write the information on the side and on the top of the box to ensure that you can find this easily.
