Packing for a house move is strenuous and can go wrong in several ways. It is a tedious and time-consuming process. It’s essential to have a plan in place to ensure the process is simple and makes not only packing but unpacking a quick and swift process as well.

1. Begin Early and Create and Inventory

The sooner you start packing, the less you’ll need to worry about when the moving day arrives. Depending on how long to have to move – set a timeline. Use half of the time to take an inventory of your belongings. Even though this seems like a time-consuming process, starting early is the key.

Taking account of your inventory will give you an opportunity to go over your belongings and get rid of anything that is no longer required. This ultimately reduces packing efforts as well. It also gives you a brief idea about the packing supplies you would need.

2. Pack an essentials box for every category and label it

Pack a separate essentials box for kitchen and bathroom with a box of tools and essential cleaning supplies. It might seem easy to pack everything together, however essentials box can save you a lot of frustration in the initial few days and give you enough time to unwind.

3. Find a way to identifying boxes by Room

Color-code boxes by each room. This will make it easier to unload the boxes into the appropriate rooms. If you have boxes of same color, then color the corners or use different color markers to identify which room they will belong to.

4. Pack Fragile Items Appropriately

Use paper wrap and bubble wrap for keeping delicate items safe. If you fall short of these supplies, then you can use clothing to wrap these items as well. Alternatively, you can leave out packing of these items and outsource this task to professional Melbourne Movers.

5. Vacuum out of season clothes

Vacuum bags can save a ton of space. They should especially be used to pack clothing of the next season. You can put away vacuum-sealed bags in the appropriate location as packed and you’ll have one less thing to worry about when unpacking.

6. Use your already existing suitcases and bags

There are changes you may run out of packing boxes during the process. Instead of going out and buying more supplies, gather already existing luggage to pack your belongings. You can use small duffle bags to pack items of different categories and then place them in packing boxes.

7. Empty all drawers and cabinets

To avoid last minute packing, make sure you go over each drawer in the kitchen and wardrobes and empty it out to avoid forgetting any items in your old space. If you are carrying heavy furniture to new location, emptying them will take off extra weight and also prevent damage of furniture as well.


The above packing hacks will ensure you don’t have to deal with last minute packing. Use these hacks to save time, effort and money while packing and keep your belongings safe.
