Moving Can Be Very Stressful And Overwhelming For Anybody That Is Planning To Move. Just A Thought Of Packing Everything Is Challenging Enough. First Thing First!
Decluttering Is The Most Important Part Of Your Moving Process Because You Want To Take Only Things That You Actually Want To Keep.
Work In Each Room As One Step At The Time. Follow The Plan On What To Keep, Donate, Discard And Possibly To Sell.
You Also Have To Decide If You Want To Use A Moving Company Or Use Your Friends Or Family Members, Especially For A Local Move. Moving Companies Can Be Very Expensive And They Pack Fast, Not In The Organized Way.
The Best Way To Declutter And Pack Professionally Is To Hire A Professional Organizer Who Has An Experience In That Field. Together, You Will Determine What To Pack Plus Everything Will Be Categorized And Placed The Right Way. Inventory List Is Also A Great Idea To Have More Specifics On What’s Inside Of Each Box. I Use Color Tapes For Different Rooms, Like Kitchen, Bedroom Etc So That Is Much Easier To Place Boxes In Your New Home.
You’ll Need Several Small, Medium- And Some Large Sized Boxes. You Can Purchase New Boxes, Or You Can Pack With Used Boxes. Just Keep In Mind That If You Pack With Used Boxes, Make Sure They’re Sturdy, Not Overly Used And Can Hold The Weight Of What You’re Packing. Wardrobe Boxes Can Be Also Very Useful But There Are More Expensive ($18 Or More) They Are Great For Hanging Items, Like Blouses, Suits Etc And You Can Place Shoes Or Bags On The Bottom Of Each Box For A Total Capacity.
You’ll Also Need Packing Paper Or Newsprint, Packing Tape And A Marker To Label The Box. Note That If You Use Newsprint Or Newspapers To Pack, You’ll Have To Wash The Dishes Well After You Unpack To Remove Any Ink That Remains Behind.
If You’re Packing And Moving To Another House, You’ll Need To Know How To Pack Fragile Dinnerware To Ensure It Gets To Your New Home In One Piece. So When It Comes To Packing The Kitchen, Dishes, Including Plates, Need To Be Packed Properly. Find Out How With This Easy Step-By-Step Guide To Packing Dishes And Flatware To Ensure They Safely Arrive At Your New Home.
Whether You’re Packing With A Used Box Or A New One, You Should Also Reinforce The Bottom With Packing Tape. Add A Couple Of Layers Of Tape Then Test The Bottom By Pushing On It Plus Place Some Paper On The Bottom Of Each Box.
Wrap Each Dish
Place A Stack Of Packing Paper Or Newsprint On Your Work Surface. The Sheets Should Be Large Enough To Accommodate The Dishes You Need To Pack.
Place The First Dish In The Center Of The Top Sheet And Fold One Corner Of The Sheet Over The Plate Until It’s Completely Covered. Place Plates Vertically With Some Extra Paper On Top. Sometimes I Use Bubbles But Paper Is Far The Best Way To Pack Glass And Fragile Items. Lots Of It!
I was asked by my clients located in Wayne, NJ to help them organize
packing and prepare them to relocate to California. Overwhelmed and stressed, they asked for my help. Maggie’s Organizing and Staging to the rescue!
I told them not to worry about anything and that I will take care of everything. And that’s what I do – Everything from A to Z to create a stress-free project for my clients with the best possible organizing solutions for them.
Can you imagine I can save you thousands of dollars for your moving or relocating? I told my clients.
My clients from Wayne, NJ were going to spend about $24K for their relocation and through my research, I was able to cut the cost by $20K.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”502″ img_size=”full”][vc_empty_space height=”22px”][vc_single_image image=”497″ img_size=”full”][vc_wp_posts number=”10″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
How this is even possible?
It was Simple- we found the solution that worked best for my clients.
For instance, we decided to use a pod, through a local company that specializes in a long distance moving and relocation.
The next step was to decide what to keep, discard, donate and to sell.
I was there at every step helping my clients with some difficult decisions.
As a professional organizer, serving my clients in the Tri-State Area, I have seen many times homes very cluttered, stuffed with Forty years plus with items of many generations packed and hidden at every room.
So we were digging through corners of each room and making decisions on what to keep, am I’m going to use it again and do I love it?
Bravo!! We only packed what my clients wanted to take with them into a new location
We also created 3 categories: New Home, Storage, and Moving-Sale/Estate
By creating a color-coded inventory list and boxes with colorful tapes designated for a specific room, it was super helpful and easily visible for my clients.
I also managed to get loading and unloading Long Distance Pods – all that for total of $4,500 with rental and relocating the Pod including. Even though I was not going to California, I knew that my clients were in good by getting them an extra help with unloading all their belongings. Did I say helping them from A to Z? That’s right!
Stress-free project is totally possible. Sometimes we need to ask for professional help to save time, money, and stress!
My clients are looking forward to a new beginning with much less stress and much more money in their pocket! Hurray! [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Contact Maggie’s Organizing & Staging
