When it comes to moving, packing boxes is a must. But what about those items that don't fit into any shape or size of box? You can use bubble wrap or crumpled paper for light and delicate items, old towels or blankets for heavier pieces, and foam or peanut sheets to pack more valuable items. You can even cut custom polystyrene foam inserts to provide optimal protection for very expensive and very precious items. The key to successfully packing odd-shaped items is to disassemble them if possible.
Furniture, floor lamps, sculptures and other similar items can be disassembled to fit inside moving boxes. We strongly recommend that you call someone to help you disassemble the furniture properly. Invite some of your friends or hire reliable moving agents to help you. When disassembling items, be careful not to lose any screws or bolts.
Use plastic bags with a zip lock to store all the pieces inside them. Label these plastic bags correctly and store them all together in a single box or in a larger bag. Packing boxes is as much about wrapping your items as it is about putting them in place. Do not try to cut corners and save time by not wrapping your belongings, especially fragile and sharp ones.
This can cause a lot of damage, including broken items and boxes that are dangerous to transport or unpack. Keep clothes on your hangers and group them together and wrap them in large garbage bags or hang them in a closet box. Just make sure that the boxes are worn out very carefully and that you only use them to store light items such as bedding and towels. You don't want to deal with broken boxes and broken valuables on the big day.
Also, remember to fill the boxes so they don't weigh more than 30 pounds. For example, use small or medium boxes for heavy items, such as books. Use large boxes for lighter items, such as quilts. If you buy the right number of small, medium and closet boxes, you'll have more of a plan and less a puzzle to fit your belongings in random boxes. Many packers don't make an accurate assessment before packing and end up having to put too much in each box or having to put items in boxes that aren't right for them. And of course, there will be some things that won't fit into any shape or size of box, or that will just need a little extra care and thought out to pack.
In addition, the bubble wrap is very easy to use, lightweight and flexible, adapts to any shape and size, ensuring the safety of the wrapped item without increasing its weight. When it comes to packing odd-shaped items, it's important to take your time and plan ahead. Disassemble furniture if possible, wrap fragile items carefully with bubble wrap or crumpled paper, use plastic bags with zip locks for screws and bolts, fill the boxes correctly so they don't weigh more than 30 pounds, keep clothes on hangers and group them together in large garbage bags or hang them in a closet box. By following these tips you can ensure that all your belongings are safely packed and transported without any damage.
