Only those who have already moved know that, in general, their belongings packing deserves a special attention. There are many details, pieces and items containing a life story and they deserve special care. For most people, this is an extra burden in an already stressful moment.
Here are some tips to make this experience smoother and peaceful.
Rely on the experts
First, it is always advisable to have a team of professionals. Having everything packed by specialists will be faster and more efficient and, more importantly, safer. It is the best investment when you move. Separate just the items you need to take with you.
Know in advance how your belongings will be transported
Before the "D-packing Day", it is important that you already have in mind the best way to classify your belongings. In case of an international move, with more than one mode of transportation, it is very important to establish beforehand what will be shipped by air, land or sea. This will make the process much more efficient and practical.
Do not take anything away from its place
It may seem strange, but for moving professionals, keeping the house as it is makes the service easier. Therefore, do not remove your objects from their normal places, in order to make the work easier for the packers.
Separate what you will need for the trip
We all know that packing usually takes more than a day. Especially when it comes to international moves. Therefore, it is important to have everything you may need during such time separated from the items to be packed by the moving company. In international moves, separate documents such as passports, visas or any other necessary items for the trip, such as tickets or hotel reservations.
Keep the keys to trunks and bags with you
In the case trunks, bags, or any other furniture items that have locks, they must be unlocked to avoid stress and headaches with customs authorities at your destination.
