Troy Michigan Real Estate – 7 Tips for Packing to Move into Your New Home

Posted in Troy Michigan Real Estate by Michigan Real Estate Expert on December 22nd, 2008

You’ve just bought Troy Michigan real estate and you’re ready to pack and move into your new home.  If you find yourself staring at your rooms in bewilderment, wondering how you’re going to pack it all, take a look at these helpful tips.

Tip #1:  Have plenty of boxes.  Too many is better than too few.  If you buy boxes from a moving company you can return them for a refund.  Extra boxes from a grocery store can just be thrown away if you have too many.

Tip #2:  Pick a color for each room.  Use color-coded stickers to mark which boxes go where.  There’s no need to open a box to see what it is; just look at the sticker color.  Be sure to make a list of the color associated with each room.

Tip #3:  Pack heavy things in small boxes.  This makes them less bulky and easier to carry.  It also makes it less likely that you’ll drop them or that the box will break.

Tip #4:  Put all furniture accessories in one boxFurniture knobs, feet, screws or legs should all be in one container, clearly marked, so the parts won’t get lost.

Tip #5:  Load what you’ll need first, last.  Make sure that items you’ll need as soon as you get in your new Troy Michigan home, such as a telephone or cleaning supplies, are loaded last. 

Tip #6:  Pack for the first day.  Use a separate bag for toiletries, a change of clothes, etc – whatever you might need for the first day.  This way, there’s no need to run to the store for things you can’t find or dig through boxes to find them.

Tip #7:  Save extra boxes for moving day.  You will forget something – it’s guaranteed.  Rather than try to stuff it all in your car, have extra boxes set aside for any last minute items such as blankets, towels and pillows.

When you’re ready to move into your Troy Michigan real estate home, follow these tips to help make the move a smooth, easy transition.
