House movers have a lot of knowledge about moving house. But they donít know everything such as how many times you will have to bend and stoop when you pack a box. Nor can they tell you how many steps you will have to take each time you bring boxes into the house so you can make them up and pack them. The house movers will show up on time, pack what they have to pack then load it into the truck or van and get it started in its journey to your new home. Then at your new home they will unload the van or truck and take the items and boxes into your new home.

When you move house and are doing the packing yourself or with family helping you, it helps to be fairly organized because it takes probably more time than you expect and it requires a lot more steps then you ever imagined. It may be a very good way to lose weight and firm up some muscles also. Because when you begin to pack boxes you will have to lift the items off of the shelves or out of the closets and then pack them or wrap them and pack them then tape up the box and put it aside so you have room to work in. You canít just pack boxes and leave them lay just anywhere because you, your family and the house movers will have to maneuver around them.

What you will need to do is organize your packing time so you have few disruptions. It will take you some time and if you are constantly interrupted by children who are not assisting or by the telephone it is cutting into your packing time and come moving day you will not be completed. If you delay the movers as you continue to pack you will also incur more cost as the hours pass before they can pack you up.

If you are going to pack books then line up some book boxes that are already made up. Make sure you tape the box bottoms and not interlock them because the tape is stronger and helps reinforce the boxes. Once you have the boxes lined up begin to pack them but donít over pack them so that a mover cannot pick them up. They do have to be a reasonable weight and if you canít pick up the box and move it to another pile then chances are the mover wonít be able to either.

Go room by room keeping like items together. You donít want to pack fragile items amongst the books but you can slip sturdy wrapped nick knacks in amongst the places where you have openings between the books. When you pack fragile items use towels or bedding to protect the items beside the packing paper that you get to wrap things in. If you coordinate and carve out time to pack correctly then you will be successful during the move.
