Packing up the contents of your home and moving are tough jobs, but there are ways to make the whole process go more smoothly. One way to do this is to be thorough and organized when labeling your boxes. Although it may seem like a lot of work while you're packing, if your boxes are labeled well, the moving company employees will be able to put each box in the appropriate room of your new home, saving you a lot of time and effort. You'll be able to focus on unpacking your boxes and putting things away rather than shuffling boxes from one room to another. Following are some useful tips for labeling boxes for moving.
Color-Coded, Numbered Labels
Rather than writing out labels with the name of each room, use color-coded labels and then number them. Choose a separate color for each room of your new home, and use the number so that you can make a master list of the contents of each box. Color coded labels are viewable from further away than handwritten labels, which will make it easier for your local movers to get the boxes into the correct rooms.
You should also affix your color coded labels to all four sides of your boxes, but you can skip the top and bottoms. When the boxes are stacked, you'll be able to see the labels; if the labels are on the tops of the boxes, you will have to do a lot box shifting to see the labels. Use the master list to determine an order of priority when it is time to unpack your boxes. With a master list and color-coded, numbered boxes, you'll be able to determine quickly if a box has been misplaced or lost in transit.
Arrows and Caution Signs
Another way to make the job more efficient for your local moving services is to draw an arrow on each box pointing up; you can also print out arrows on adhesive labels and affix them to your boxes. This way, the contents of your boxes won't become damaged because the boxes were stacked upside down. You should also choose a brightly colored label with "fragile" printed on it to label all of your delicate items. These words will help your movers can see the fragile boxes from a distance and can treat them with the care they require.
You should also choose a colored label for junk removal. Many moving services offer junk hauling in addition to moving; while the boxes you want for your new home are being delivered, the boxed up items that you're not taking to your new home can be hauled away so that you won't have to deal with them at your new home.
