Changing your home can quickly become a real obstacle course. In addition, most of us do not know how to prepare for a move properly. The list of things to do includes the preparation of boxes. Discover in the lines that follow our advice to facilitate this step as well as some tips for choosing the most suitable packaging to your needs!
The Kraft Bag For Valuables
The kraft bag is a 100% natural packaging. This paper bag is handy for protecting and packing small valuables such as jewelry, boxes, bedside lamps, etc. It can also act as a protective fit to keep your belongings during the move. Of course, they are made from paper, but know that the kraft paper bags are robust and tear-resistant, hence the German name kraft meaning “strength.” Also, they are biodegradable, which means they are not harmful to the environment.
Cardboard Packaging To Wrap Large Objects
The cardboard is, of course, unavoidable during a move. It offers several advantages: cheaper, lightweight, practical and robust. Also, it is available in different sizes. Generally, it takes 20 cartons for an adult and 10 for a child. When assembling, remember to use a large tape (brown or white) that you will then note in pen. This will allow you to organize well and not get tangled.
Also don’t be afraid to buy a lot of boxes when you move. If you have ever moved you know that one can not have to many boxes. If anything you want more boxes than needed as it’s better to keep them in storage for when you move again compared to not having enough while you move.
The “Bull Pack” To Guarantee The Safety Of Your Belongings
Before you use kraft bags and cartons, you must wrap your belongings (and especially objects that may break) in a bull pack. Also called bubble wrap, this film helps dampen shocks during the journey, but not only. It will also serve to fill the void in the cardboard boxes. You now know the packaging that is essential for a successful move. Last tip before leaving us: remember to prepare your cards at least a month before D-Day. This will save you time and improve your organization.
