How to pack and move a bedroom

Tips for packing a bedroomPacking up a bedroom will require a certain level of planning and preparation, and the good news is that there are a series of tips that should help you out along the way.

One of the key things that you should be aware of is that you need to have every single detail about the move planned out ahead of time.  You need to know precisely where you intend to put your audio systems, bed, television, and anything else that will require a large amount of space.  You also need to come up with a pathway and make sure that you have removed all obstacles.  It is a good idea to establish an inventory list that features all the items you are intending to move and then have this list checked again after you have unpacked in your new home.

Another good tip is to sort out all of your items before you start thinking about the move.  It is pointless to take with you every little item and useless trinket that you no longer have any need or use for; therefore, it is a very good idea to separate out the good stuff from the junk.  You should do this in an unhurried manner so that you do not make any mistakes and accidentally miss an important item.  Unwanted possessions should be thrown away, given to relatives or friends, or donated to a charitable institution.  The less burdened you can make the cargo, the easier and cheaper you are going to make the move for everybody concerned.

The acquisition of packing materials is of an importance that cannot be overstated.  You are going to need all kinds of containers and boxes for the relocation.  Mattresses and pillows are going to require special covers, and you will have to purchase brand new ones if you no longer possess the originals.  Once more you are going to have to work out in advance the amount and kind of boxes that you are going to require.  You may not want to  attempt to save money by reusing the same ones if the boxes are severely damaged.  Cardboard boxes are not intended to last indefinitely and may not be as durable as they once were after they have been used a number of times.  It is far better to buy brand new sturdy boxes.  Other packing materials that you are going to need include micro-foam, pressure sensitive wrapping tape, foam peanuts, wrapping bubbles and other cushioning items.  It is a good idea to use items other than rugs or old newspapers for the purpose of protecting items, as they have little real effect.

You should always use caution when packing your precious possessions.  Never use raw physical force to try to pack anything, and make sure that every item is enveloped in bubble wrap and surrounded by other padding materials.  Items should not be able to collide with one another.
