DIY or Let Your Moving Company Do It?

When you choose one of the best international moving companies to take care of the process for you, it only makes sense to let them handle the packing process also. Those who are relocating or facing a big move have a lot on their minds and so it comes as no surprise they tend to choose their moving service provider as the best solution for packing. That said, there are those who choose to do the packing on their own. In this case, there is no right or wrong, only what’s best for you and what fits your needs.

If you prefer saving time, saving effort, and knowing where everything is and that nothing will get misplaced in the process, have one of the best international moving companies do your packing for you. Want to take care of things on your own? No problem, do the packing yourself.

Tips for Efficient Packing

If you choose doing your own packing, make sure you follow these tips. Believe us, they come from experience…

  • Order, gentlemen, order: putting the entire content of your home in boxes requires planning and order. Make a list of the packed boxes, assign each box a number, specify what’s in each box, make sure you write the number on the boxes themselves, and also write the destination within your new house each box should go to (e.g., kitchen, bedroom, etc.).
  • Clear signs: some boxes contain fragile things, for example. Make sure to mark such boxes clearly so your movers can handle them with care.
  • Destination: make sure you clearly write on each box the intended room it should get to. This way your movers will do most of the job for you.
  • Control: make sure you control the process. In your list mark which boxes have been carried away, which have been accounted for in your new house, and which have been unpacked. This way you can make sure nothing gets left behind or misplaced.
