Packing Check List
Moving from Ireland to Canada we learned the hard way, most of the pitfalls
associated with relocating. That was ten years ago, today I work
as a realtor and relocation specialist in Calgary. If I can be of assistance making
sure you don't make the same mistakes, please
give me a
call. or fill out the form below and I will get back
Packing Items Before Moving
A selection of good sturdy
boxes and containers.
Filler material such as
Styrofoam nuggets, newspaper etc.
Heavy duty box tape
Box Labels to identify
HOW BEST TO PACK
Double box any fragile items and
mark the boxes as such. Place any heavy items in smaller boxes and
mark them as "heavy" or "over weight" This makes it easer for the
movers when loading the truck. Mark the destination room that the
package should be placed in on the outside of the box. For example,
"kitchen or master bedroom". Don't pack small valuable items such as
jewelry or cash. Instead take this with you in your own car. Number
boxes and keep an itemized list of all items packed and the boxes
they are in.
When packing, try and sort any
items you are going to need first, by packing them last. Pack any
items you are going to need immediately such as food or clothing in
a separate box and take that one with you in your own car. If you
have small children remember to leave some toys or games unpacked
and available for quick access on any long journeys. Also, don't
forget to bring along some snacks and drinks for the children if it's
going to be a long drive.
Like I said, when it comes to the
moving thing I have been there and have the scars to prove it. If I
can help you learn from my own experiences please don't hesitate to
call me on (403) 383-8025.
