A cutter is a popular moving tool commonly used for slicing through boxes, tape, and other packaging materials. Austin, the co-founder of Central Coast Moving & Storage, introduced a clever cutter in the first Moving Pro-Tip Monday video to highlight its importance during the moving process. Here’s why everyone on our team recommends using this incredible tool when relocating:
Safety- A well-designed cutter offers a secure grip and a retractable blade, reducing the risk of injuries while packing and unpacking.
Efficiency– Utilizing a box cutter allows quicker and easier packing and unpacking, conserving time and effort.
Organization– The clever cutter allows you to make clean cuts on packing materials, making labeling and organizing your items easier. This makes the unpacking process more streamlined.
Cost-effectiveness– Effectively using the clever cutter minimizes waste and optimizes the use of packing materials. This will save money and promote eco-friendliness.
Properly labeling your packaging material is critical for an organized move. In this video, we demonstrate the importance of using Sharpies to mark boxes and other packing materials. This makes it easy for you to locate your items when unpacking. Labeling or tagging furniture with a Sharpie can help you remember where each piece should be placed in your new home.
Assembling boxes may seem simple, but there are techniques to make this process more efficient. In the Building Boxes video, we show you how to build sturdy boxes to protect your belongings during the move. Here are a few tips to consider for a perfect box assembly:
Choose the right size box for the items you’re packing to avoid overstuffing or underutilizing the space.
Reinforce the bottom of the box with tape to ensure it can support your belongings.
Carefully fold the flaps in the correct order (as indicated in the video) to create a stable and secure closure.
In this informative video, we demonstrate the importance of placing wrap papers on the bottom of your moving boxes. Wrapping couches can help stabilize the items you are packing. This is particularly important for fragile items or those that are easily breakable.
By providing a stable base, you can help prevent items from shifting or moving around during the move, reducing the risk of damage. This simple yet effective technique can be a game-changer, preventing damage and ensuring your possessions arrive at your new home in perfect condition.
Besides, you can use the wrap couches to keep your items clean during the move. The papers will prevent your belongings from accumulating dirt, dust, and debris.
Packing Fragile Items
Our Packing Fragile Items video offers essential tips for packing delicate items such as wine glasses securely, ensuring they arrive at your new location intact. Here are a few tips to consider:
Use packing paper and bubble wrap to cushion fragile items and prevent them from shifting during transit.
Fill any space in the box with packing materials to keep items from shifting and minimize the risk of damage.
In our Packing Silverware/Knives video, you’ll learn practical techniques for packing and keeping silverware and knives organized and safe during the move. Here are a few tips we highlighted in this video:
Use a tray or organizer to keep utensils sorted and secure.
Wrap individual knives in 3 packing paper, then secure them with tape to prevent them from puncturing the box or causing injury.
Place the package at the bottom of the box to cushion these items during transit.
