Here are some of our Richmond movers’ favourite hacks!
Pack heavy items like books in suitcases. The wheels on the suitcases will allow them to serve as a simple form of portable storage, and will not hurt your back moving them around.
Wrap clean socks around delicate items like wine glasses to keep them from breaking while also eliminating waste. This environmentally friendly hack will keep your breakable things safe and reduce the amount of moving supplies you need to purchase.
Place small jewelry in an ice cube tray or egg carton to prevent them from getting tangled or lost during your move to Richmond!
Wrap your silverware trays with plastic wrap or paper to simplify the unpacking process. This can also work for bins of toys or other organizers.
Keep kitchen and bathroom drawers together by putting all the contents in large Ziploc bags before dumping them in moving and storage boxes.
Organize your electric cords with toilet paper tubes to keep them visible and untangled. If you have multiple cords from one device, keep them together to make settling in easier.
