The living room is usually the place where you keep most of your treasures. Since it is very likely that most of them are very expensive, make sure to use cardboard boxes for moving that are guaranteed sturdy and safe. The knick-knacks that you have collected from your travels may not be that expensive but they are valuable in terms of memories. You do not want them to be damaged or broken.
What will be the first things that you will pack? To be honest, the most valuable is your electronic gadgets. Most of these devices came with a sturdy box with Styrofoam for support but you have thrown them away. Your best option is to wrap your TV and computer in bubble sheets before you pack them in sturdy cardboard boxes to ensure that they reach the destination in perfect condition. The wires, cables, remote controls, chargers, power banks, etc. can be packed in large plastic boxes.
A clever way to pack the carpets and rugs is to roll them tightly with a tape to keep them closed. Wrap them with plastic or cling wrap for protection. Put a coloured label on the plastic wrap so that you will know which room the carpet or rug will go to.
One of the items that will be difficult to pack is mirrors and big picture frames. The worst thing that will happen to the mirror is to shatter during the move. Wrap the mirrors and picture frames in bubble wrap and then pack them in a special box that is designed for the purpose. If you can’t find a mirror box, you will need plenty of bubble wraps and two large pieces of large cardboard box that you can create into a specialized container. Blankets can serve as cushion and support to prevent the mirror from moving.
There is wide range of cardboard boxes for moving from the heavy duty shipping boxes, recycled moving boxes and customized boxes for your valuable possessions. The jumbo boxes are perfect your pillows, linens and comforters while the standard boxes can be used for heavy items like books, documents, files and other stuff.
