How To Pack For A Local Moving?

Moving can seem like a daunting task, but that’s where local movers in Colorado can help! Having a service help, moving your items out of your current home and into your new one can relieve some of the usual headaches that moving can bring. You can also strategically plan how to pack to make it easy to get everything in boxes and quickly identify where unpacking items are. Some of these top methods will be the best way for a seamless move!

Essentials

As you begin packing, set aside, or note all the essentials you will need to keep with you during your move. This could include clothes, toiletries, a few cups and dishes, medicines, shoes, electronics and chargers, and more. It may be beneficial to download a list app on your phone and have all of these essentials in the list to know what they are. Before moving, you can keep these in place and then put them in a bag to take with you for easy access, as they will be the last things you pack. You can keep these items in a bag or clear plastic totes for easy access.

Packing Order

For everything else, when you start packing, start with your decor and books. Place fragile items in bubble wrap or newspaper to help avoid damage during the move. Next, make your way to your kitchen and pack non-essential kitchen items. Be sure to put all fragile items in bubble wrap or newspaper too. Next, tackle clothes and linens. When packing clothes, if there are any on hangers, don’t worry about taking the time to take them off the hangers and fold them. This will save time when unpacking. Last, prepare all of your appliances to be moved. This can include cleaning and unplugging them. The week of your move can be tricky for refrigerated items. Try to keep purchasing new items at a minimum and pack food in coolers that you absolutely need to keep, and quickly get refrigerated when you arrive at your destination. Keep the refrigerator door shut to keep in the cold air.

Tips

Anything to help your move go smoothly will help create a better experience and help maintain the quality of your valuables. When you are ready to move, roughly two months out, keep Good Housekeeping’s Complete Moving Checklist handy to help with moving tasks for each week. Next, have a yard sale or donate items to charity that you no longer need. Moving is a great time to de-clutter and helps another cause at the same time! When you are packing, label everything with the room they belong in and what items are in the box. This will help during the unpacking process more than you may realize. To help avoid spills with toiletries and cleaners, remove their lids, cover the top with saran wrap then put the lid back on. Last, vacuum seal bags are easy to use and are huge space savers that will also help you store off-season clothes and other items.

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.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services!

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.
