Tips for an Easy Chicago Heights Move
- Make use of suitcases with wheels
Heavy and bulky items are hard to carry and if improperly lifted, can do some damage. Put these unwieldy items in suitcases on wheels. You can then avoid picking them up. Just roll them onto and off the truck with little struggle.
- Use paper bags for glasses
Paper bags are better than a newspaper for keeping your glass bowls and cups from breaking while they are being transported. Paper bags also won’t leave traces of ink on your glasses, unlike newspaper.
- Pack your plates properly
Most people stack their plates horizontally when moving, but more often than not this results in breakage because there is too much pressure on them. Avoid this by stacking your plates vertically. This will reduce excess weight and pressure, preventing your plates from breaking. When positioning them, put foam plates between each glass and ceramic plate. They’ll arrive in their final destination without chips or breaks.
- Protect your jewelry
Untangling dainty necklaces can be a headache or nearly impossible. Pack your jewelry the right way to keep them from tangling or from losing pieces altogether. Connect any necklaces through a roll of toilet paper to prevent tangling. To protect and store small jewelry items, place them in egg cartons.
- Put hanging clothes in bags
Clothes take up a lot of space, time and energy during the packing. Save yourself the trouble of removing hangers from clothes that were in the closet and put them into garbage bags. Not only can you avoid having to pack hangers, but your clothes stay in order and will be safe during transport.
- Complete the hardest task first
This is typically packing the kitchen for most people. There are lots of delicate items, like dishes, and kitchen appliances are bulky and can be difficult to pack. Deal with this first.
