If you have packed and moved before, you will know how difficult it can be to pack up all your things and move them to the new home. There are so many little things you have to consider that it is easy to get lost in all the tasks. But moving can still be a very exciting thing. You are off to start a new adventure and have a fresh new start. There are some secrets to make packing and moving a breeze. In this guide, we share more about manufactured home packing and moving!

Don’t Procrastinate

It is so easy to delay doing things that you don’t want to do. This tends to happen with packing. It is easy to tell ourselves that we don’t have time, or maybe we will start tomorrow. But starting early will save you much stress when it grows closer to the moving day. This is not something that you want to rush through. There is always more for you to do and always another thing that you could have overlooked or forgotten. If you begin the process early, you will have time to plan and figure out how to move. You can call moving services, catalog everything and take breaks during the process. You will be able to work on packing little by little each day.

Sell Or Give Away Unwanted Items

You will surely find more things throughout the process of packing, but you want to give or sell the things that you don’t want right at the start. Look through the items for those you don’t need or want and place them in a pile to sell or give away. Then, take a minute to consider if there is enough space for what you want to keep. Look at the big items and ask yourself where you will put them and whether they match your interior design. If you cannot picture the item in the new place, find a way to sell it and buy another item that can fit better. This is not only a way to start new but it is a way to invest in your new home. What you want to give away or sell is entirely up to you. There are some great resources online to sell second-hand items such as eBay. There are also great local charities around to contact if you want to donate your items.

Get Some Supplies

Before you start to pack, here is a list of the supplies you should get:

  • Boxes and containers to pack items in. The plastic totes with lids are stackable and also convenient to access.
  • Bubble wrap for any fragile items. You can use newspapers to wrap fragile items as well.
  • Packing tape
  • Labels.
  • Permanent markers for labeling boxes.

It is good to have these supplies on hand to make life easier for you when packing and moving.
