Packing – The Forgotten Task

It’s common to lose sight of packing as you become caught in the fray and stress that is moving. Many people don’t realize just how much they have and how difficult it is to prioritize packing tasks. 

As well, many people underestimate the amount of time it will take them to pack all of their belongings. Indeed, it’s considered one of the most difficult aspects of moving. For a single-family home, it takes an estimated 25-37 hours to pack all belongings with a requirement of about 50-75 boxes.

A Few Tips

Packing can vary in difficulty. It’s next to nothing to transfer your off-season clothing from the dresser to the box but packing cumbersome items like toiletries and large dishes (think slow cookers and bread makers) can be difficult. 

Sometimes the task may seem overwhelming, and you may not know where to begin, so here are a few starting points:

  • Firstly, take advantage of resources such as Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji to sell or donate your unused – but still valuable – items. It takes them off of your hands for little effort and you can pocket a bit of change as well.
  • Make a list of each room in your house and create an estimate of how many boxes you’ll need. Pack each room one at a time so that your items are easier to find once moved.
  • Wrap delicate items like dishes in towels or smaller blankets. Doing this saves a bit of space and adds extra protection.
  • Pack your boxes heavy to light for even weight distribution and secure with strong packing tape.
  • You will thank yourself for labeling your boxes with as much detail as possible.

Early Bird Packing Services

Our packing services are as flexible as you require them to be. We at Early Bird Moving are capable of packing your entire home for you with precision and care, down to the last ornament. 

Alternatively, you can enlist our services for only your larger items that require special padding and packaging. This category usually includes high-value items such as flatscreen televisions, desktop computers, large mirrors, and more. 

We also offer unpacking services with the same degree of flexibility and allow you to take control of the process. For example, you can organize your kitchen and have us unpack your living room simultaneously. 

If none of these options work for you, we’re also able to completely take the reins ourselves should you wish to focus on other tasks. We at Early Bird Moving have extensive experience reassembling furniture and organizing items in a modern, cohesive manner.
