When we talk about a move, it is essential to refer to the packaging, that is, the process by which the different objects to be moved are protected in order to safeguard their integrity while they are being transported.
How is the packaging done?
If you are thinking of moving, you should know that packing is a key part of this process, which is why it is essential that it is carried out by experts who know the techniques and materials necessary to adequately protect all the objects to be moved.
In this sense, the best thing to do is to hire a solid company with sufficient experience, such as “Mudanzas y Guardamuebles Lidon”, an organisation based in Mallorca that has dedicated more than 35 years to carry out removals, both national and international, with total seriousness and responsibility.
However, if your decision is to do the packing in a personal way, you can also do it, but you will have to take into consideration some key elements so that the packing is done in a correct way.
Tips for Packaging
If you have already made up your mind and are planning to do the packing yourself, here are a few practical tips that will be very useful throughout the moving process.
Firstly, try to pack only what you need, by this we mean that you take advantage of the move to get rid of those old objects or those that you are no longer using, this way you will save space while cleaning the place.
Organize with time, do not leave everything for the last minute, because the work will accumulate and it will be impossible to pack everything properly. Plan ahead for the necessary activities and make an inventory of all the things to be packed, this will make it much easier to keep track.
Use only the appropriate materials, in this aspect, many people think that any box will be enough to store things, however, it is important to clarify that there are materials that have been specifically designed to safely pack the objects during a move.
On the other hand, large objects that do not fit in a box, such as furniture, should be protected with some other type of material such as tarps, blankets, plastic with air bubbles, among others.
In addition to the above, fragile objects, such as glasses, cups, ceramic or glass objects, should be wrapped separately in paper or plastic and then placed inside the boxes, if possible with some kind of filling that gives greater protection.
Finally, use labels to identify the boxes, so that you know what each one has inside when you unpack it, and also allows you to keep track of it throughout the whole moving process.
What are the Best Materials for Packaging?
On the other hand we have the plastic covers, which are very useful when protecting large furniture such as sofas, armchairs, beds and mattresses, against possible tears, blows or any other mishap during the move.
In addition, we have bubble wrap, a very useful material for wrapping delicate objects that could break. The most common option when packing objects for a move is cardboard boxes, as they are economical, resistant and easy to obtain, and also come in different sizes.
In addition to the above, to protect the corners or edges of the furniture, you can use pads that are usually made of plastic, so the furniture will be much safer.
