So you are looking for tips for how to pack to move in a hurry. This means you probably do not have the time for long-winded introductions about the many reasons there might be for last-minute moving. All right, let’s simply skip that part!
Packing and preparing when there is not much time
In our blogs, we have been providing you with moving tips for quite a while now. We often recommend strategies that involve careful planning, list making and early preparations. The goal usually is to reduce stress on moving day. When you are pressed for time though, your opportunities for preparation are probably limited. Here are some moving tips to help you make the best use of your time.
Try to involve the material you already have available and that needs to be moved anyway: Towels, bed sheets, pillows and blankets can easily do double-duty as wraps and buffers for more delicate items.
Leave your clothes on their hangers. You can use special moving wardrobes/garment boxes that are usually made from cardboard. They can be transported with the garments hanging in them. Alternatively, you can take a big trash bag and have it double as a garment bag by hooking the hangers through. This will surely help protect your clothing during the move.
Use your suitcases
You are probably taking your suitcases with you, right? Then you might as well fill them, and it does not have to be clothes that go in there, either. You can use them to transport your books or other items.
Reserve some boxes for donations
While you are packing, sort out those things you don’t want take with you. You can then take those boxes to a thrift shop or other charities that accept donations. Most importantly, be sure to mark these appropriately.
Ask for help
Ask a friend for help with packing. When you have to pack in a hurry, an additional set of hands can make a world of difference.
