You have to pack your belongings strategically in the moving container to keep them safe and protected during the journey. Here, in this article, we are aimed to present a detailed and easy step by step procedure for you to make the hectic moving quicker, cheaper and more convenient. Now, have a glance:


  1. Schedule the date and hire a moving container:


At first, research and learn about different moving container companies and their services before booking anyone. Then, contact one which best meets your needs and budget both. Schedule a date and how long you are going to keep the moving container for storage purposes – with the sales representative and it will be delivered to your doorstep.


You also have to choose among the different size of containers available to meet best your need within your budget. Lastly, ask the representative if they can help you with a moving professional in executing the packing for moving.


  1. Decide on the items to pack:


Within a file prepare the checklist of your belongings and just don’t increase the number of luggage by packing needless household possessions like extra furniture, extra old clothes, carpets, cushions, junks, unnecessary tools, kitchenware etc. You can think about distributing or organising a garage sale day with such staff. Remember, the less you need to pack and move, the more you can save on money and time. Then proceed strategically by packing things of every room one by one.


  1. Fix a Loading Area:


You should ask the moving container company to place the container in a perfect easily accessible place like facing the door or in the garage, to make the moving procedure easier. You have to make sure the container is creating no obstruction in your neighbour’s property or a public road or shared car park for residential or commercial traffic.


  1. Packing important staff:


At first, collect all important staff like medical reports, school reports, financial documents, property-related documents, bank details, and organise them safely in different folders and label them properly. Keep all your private files or credit cards, ATM cards in your personal handbag safely and also keep some cash in hand.  For unimportant items you no longer want and can’t sell, the most cost-effective option is to hire a skip bin to dispose of as much as possible.


  1. Pack your belongings:


The best way to pack a container is to use every inch of space of the container. Accumulate your essential elements like medications, toiletries, a couple of clothes change and pack all of them in your open-first handbag. Decide on the numbers and sizes of the moving boxes you are going to need for packing all of your belongings and also gather equipment like enough packing tape, papers and furniture protectors.


You can also skip buying things like bubble wrap, moving blankets, and stretch wrap. Instead, you can use household items like clothes, blankets, towels, to provide padding and protection for easy-breakable things like glasses, artworks, vases, platters, mirrors, etc.


  1. Finally, load the container:


Cover the bottom of moving the container with blankets and cardboard, then start packing with larger furniture and fill-up the gaps in between furniture and boxes with smaller boxes, pillows, sheets, packing paper and buffer.


Wrapping up:


Once you are done give it a final check if anything is left or forgotten and if all boxes aren’t secured perfectly. Once your contents look safe and secure, close the container doors with a straight shackle padlock. Your con
