So you got a new place! While going somewhere new can be exciting, packing and moving isn’t always so. We’ve compiled a short list of tips to help make your move smoother!


  1. Put all the items you will need FIRST in a clear bin. These would be box cutters, trash bags, select cookware/utensils, phone chargers, toilet paper, etc. The clear bin allows for distinct visibility among the legion of cardboard boxes.
  2. Pack plates vertically, like dish racks; they will be less likely to break.
  3. Buy a roll of stretch wrap for your belongings and work it like a giant press’n seal. It will protect large items (like furniture) from getting scratched, and small items (like jewelry) from getting mixed or tangled.
  4. For the ideal moving experience, hire professionals in your area. Movers like Element Moving makes sure your items, whether small or large, get to their destination in mint condition.
  5. Pack an “essentials” bag. This would consist of everything you’ll need for the first night at your new place, so you can rest easy and recharge!
