Movers in Denver CO Reveal the Most Common Packing Mistakes

Packing everything you own and moving into a new home can be incredibly stressful—especially if you’re not an experienced packer. Fortunately, there is a way to take the stress out of packing. How? According to movers in Denver, CO, all you have to do is avoid these common mistakes:

Mistake: Procrastinating

Packing is probably not your idea of fun, so you may find yourself putting it off over and over again until moving day is right around the corner. But, this is not a good idea. Putting this off will make it more stressful since you will have to rush to get everything done in time. It’s also more likely that you will break something since you will be doing everything in a hurry. Prevent this problem by starting a few weeks before your big move. Start small by taking artwork off of your walls and wrapping up fragile vases and picture frames. If you pace yourself and do a little bit at a time, it won’t seem so bad. Learn more about the top 5 moving mistakes and how to avoid them.

Mistake: Packing Everything You Own

Don’t assume that everything in your current home needs to be brought with you to your new one. There are bound to be things that you no longer need or use, so there’s no point in packing these items up and bringing them with you. This will create more work for you when you arrive at your new home and waste energy unpacking items you don’t need. Before you start putting your belongings in boxes, sort through everything and take out anything that you don’t need to bring with you.

Mistake: Using Alternative Packing Materials

Moving can be expensive, so, understandably, some people try to cut costs by not buying packing materials. But, it would help if you never tried to use alternative packing materials that you find around your house instead of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, and other supplies. Packing materials are designed to keep your belongings as safe as possible during the move. Other items, such as blankets, newspapers, and garbage bags, are not. If you care about keeping your items in good condition, stick to traditional packing materials instead of cutting corners.

Mistake: Using Vague Labels

Be specific when labeling the outside of each box that you pack. You may think that you will remember what you meant by “miscellaneous kitchen” when you get to your new home, but you probably won’t. Don’t spend the first night in your new home digging through boxes looking for something—plan by using labels that clearly describe what is inside each box.

Now that you know how to avoid these packing mistakes, are you ready to plan your move? If so, it’s time to get in touch with the professionals.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
