There are a few essential steps that you can take in order to make your packing process faster, more organized, and more fun. Furthermore, we will cover a few important reasons why it is necessary to have trusted and reliable movers Bakersfield by your side when you relocate.

How to make packing fun – Start with a checklist

It may not seem like the most fun thing to do, however, if you plan on relocating stress-free, it is essential that you have a checklist of your items. So, before you even start packing, be sure to create a simple yet effective inventory checklist. This checklist should give you an overall idea of what kind of items you have in your inventory as well as how many items you have to move. Why is this essential for fun while packing? Well, you will basically find out once you start packing. If you go into the packing process without a simple checklist or something to give you an idea of what you are dealing with, you may not have a whole lot of fun. Of course, if you happen to realize that you have too many items to pack and you will not be able to do everything on your own, be sure to hire movers who can assist you with professional packing services Bakersfield. That way you will not have to worry about the protection of your items.

Create games and competitions while packing

If you are packing and moving with your family, why not turn some of the packing processes into a fun game or a competition? Furthermore, you can invite your friends over and have even more fun while organizing various games to see who gets to pack first for example. In addition to this, make sure you are keeping some form of tabs on the packing process while having fun. Pack room by room and try to use the right packing tools and materials. Do not start the packing process unless you have all of the necessary packing tools and materials such as:

  • High-quality cardboard boxes,
  • Packing foam,
  • Packing tape and scissors,
  • Bubble wrap,
  • Labeling materials.

If you do not have access to these, contact movers who can help you find the right moving services Bakersfield and packing tools and materials for the needs of your inventory.

Get creative with your cardboard boxes and labels

During the packing process, it is highly advisable to label all of the packed boxes for their content. This will help you keep things organized as well as tell your movers which boxes need to be handled with extra care. In addition to this, it will make your unpacking process a whole lot easier. However, who says labeling boxes needs to be boring? Get different labeling materials and decorate your packed boxes! Colorful tape, markers, stickers, and other items can truly help you make your boxes stand out. This is an especially fun activity to do if you are moving with kids. They will be busy and also have fun while decorating the boxes.

Call your friends to help you pack!

Packing on your own can be extremely challenging. Packing is a long and often complicated process that requires a ton of mental and physical strength. There is no need to do everything on your own. Therefore, call your friends as backup. Packing with friends is always more fun than if you were to do it alone. Furthermore, as mentioned above, you can also turn it into a game of sorts, especially when packing with other family members. However, do not forget to use the cardboard boxes properly. Make sure everyone involved in the packing process knows how to properly construct a moving box to avoid damaging your items accidentally.

Declutter while you pack

Decluttering is an essential process that you should always tackle when packing for the move. It helps you get rid of the items you no longer need or want. How can you make it fun you might wonder? Well, for starters, you can donate and help others with some of the items that you no longer need. Additionally, you can also set up a garage sale. This is a very fun activity that lets you spend more time in your old neighborhood before moving and your kids can be involved as well. In case you do not have time to deal with the decluttered items, check with your movers if they can help you find the proper storage Bakersfield for your items.

Relocate with the assistance of reliable movers by your side

Moving can be challenging and if you have to tackle a packing process on your own, it may not be all that fun. However, as you can see, with these few tips and tricks, you can learn how to make packing fun. The most important thing is to give yourself enough time to handle the packing process. If you have a few months at least to pack before your relocation date, you can take it slowly, play games along the way, pack room by room, and also call your friends to assist you. Do not forget to always look for reliable and trustworthy movers to assist you. With the right movers by your side, you can enjoy your new home and the relocation quickly and stress-free!

“I highly recommend Hansen's moving and storage, Jessie Montecino came out and help me move my house. Not only did he show up early but we also finished in a great time. Jessie made sure everything was wrapped and protected. He has a great sense for detail. I would use Hansen's again.”
