How to pack things when moving?

Moving is usually associated with the hassle. It is important not to forget anything, to plan and pack everything correctly. By the way, the time for unpacking things upon arrival at the appointed place will be significantly reduced if you know how to pack things when moving. All in Moving Systems offers you detailed instructions for packing things in case of an impending move.


The most important things, that you will need:

  • scotch tape (as strong and wide as possible);
  • cardboard boxes of various sizes;
  • newspapers and wrapping paper;
  • a film with bubbles;
  • soft cloth;
  • large plastic bags;
  • a notebook;
  • a pen;
  • a marker.

We advise you to purchase all this with a large margin.


You don’t know where to start and how to pack your things when you move so as not to stretch it for months? All in Moving Systems is ready to help you!

First of all, focus on the things you don’t need for today and tomorrow:

  • books;
  • clean bedding sets;
  • Out of season clothing.

Last but not least, oversized property such as:

  • furniture;
  • household electrical appliances;
  • kitchen appliances;
  • office equipment, etc.


Which shelf is the first to remove books from? Stop! Start with the most difficult to access. That is the top point of cabinets, mezzanines, for instance.

1.You can fold in plastic bags the following things:

  • blankets;
  • curtains;
  • tablecloths;
  • linens;
  • pillows;
  • towels.

Number each package with a marker and write in a notepad or notebook, the package number, and its contents. This technique will reduce the time for the subsequent unpacking of things and speed up the arrangement in a new place.

  1. The turn of books has come. They should be stacked neatly. Wrap each of the stacks with paper and fix them with tape. Now you can put book stacks into cardboard boxes.

If empty spaces are visible, then they must be filled with newspapers, cloth, or film with bubbles. One book does not weigh much, but if there is a whole box of them, then that makes a difference. For greater security, tape not only the top of the book box but also its seams.

  1. Wardrobe. Pack summer and demi-season clothes in travel bags, if there are none, then the same plastic bags together with boxes will come to the rescue. Number them and write them down in your notebook.
  2. Kitchen. This is the most difficult and responsible place, here you will have to work hard. Mandatory for paper or newspaper wrapping:
  • glasses;
  • cups;
  • plates;
  • glasses;
  • vases, etc.

To save space, you can put any fragile trifle inside the pots, after wrapping it with newspapers and filling the voids with a cloth. You should mark with a red marker those boxes in which there will be breakable objects.
