When should you start packing for a move?

Here you go! You have found the perfect home. Everything is tied up except the crates, boxes and packaging. Yet the organization of a move, you can never think about it too early. When should you start preparing for it ? How do you pack your belongings ? Nothing is improvised, everything is prepared on time. Maison Genné, an expert in moving and packing materials in Brabant Walloon, gives you some valuable advice.

How to prepare for a move ?

It's important to choose resistant and suitable packaging materials.The right preparation for the move involves anticipation. A well-thought-out organization avoids doing things at the last minute and being overwhelmed. It is advisable to think about your departure between three months and a month and a half before the date. This period is obviously relative to the volume in your home. You also have to think about carrying out the administrative procedures, preparing the packing materials for the move (tape, felt, cutter, blankets, bubble wrap, etc.) and transport. Do not hesitate to establish a precise schedule of the various planned tasks.

Which boxes should you pack first ?

Preparing and filling the boxes seems obvious. However, to avoid doing and undoing, searching for an object that you urgently need, sorting is essential. Pack accessory items first and keep those essentials close at hand. This inventory also gets rid of objects that have become useless and lightens your moving boxes. By emptying your cupboards of the superfluous and filling your boxes with the accessory, you also free up space to store the first moving boxes.

Running out of space? You can, during your move, opt for the rental of a storage unit to start well in advance and store your boxes.

Suitable moving equipment

The organization’s timing for the move is laid out in black and white with a chronological list of tasks in support. You have taken note of the essential items to keep on hand until D-Day. All that remains is to take action and fill the boxes, etc. But which boxes or packaging do you choose ?

Forget crumbly “recycled” boxes and opt for optimal protection with resistant and specific packaging materials for each object. Among the moving equipment, there are different types of packaging : glass boxes and boxes for planes, for wine, for books, others for linen or even wardrobe boxes.
