So you're moving — again. Everyone says that a move is stressful. Whether you're moving across town or the country, packing your bathroom has its own challenges. Packing your bathroom items can be one of the trickiest parts of moving. You need to pack all your bathroom essentials, so you have them in the place you choose to make your new home. Also, transporting those essentials can be difficult, so it's important to know what will survive the trip and what won't. National Movers has significant experience in packing and moving. Give us, your local movers, a call if you don’t know where to begin.
When you move to a new home, one of the first things you'll need to do is set up your bathroom. When it comes to packing your bathroom, there are lots of things to consider. One of the most important things to remember when packing your bathroom is that you'll want to make sure you have enough space for all of your belongings.
One thing that can help with this is using boxes specifically designed for packing bathrooms. These boxes are larger than traditional moving boxes and have extra room for towels, toiletries, and other necessary items. Often, these boxes will also have wheels on them so that they're easier to move around.
If you're planning on using traditional moving boxes for your bathroom, then make sure that each one has enough room for everything you plan to bring with you from the old house. Try to leave some room in each box so that when it's time to unpack everything, there isn't too much pressure on any single item, and something breaks or gets damaged during the move. Also, remember not to overpack any box because this could also cause damage during transit.
You may be tempted to just throw all your lotions and creams into a large box, but you'll want to think about how much space they will take up in your new home. Lotion bottles can leak, which can be messy and ruin other items in your box. It's best to pack them carefully in their original containers so that nothing gets wet or damaged by broken glass.
Medicine is another important item that needs special attention when packing for your move. You should always remove any medication from its original container before packing it for the move. This is because some medications can react with other items in the box, causing them to break down or melt into liquid form, ruining everything else in the box! If you have pills that need to stay dry during transit, try placing them inside an empty film canister or pill bottle before placing them in the larger box with all your other items. The canister or pill bottle will keep moisture out while protecting it from breaking open during transport.
Packing your bathroom is a very personal process. Every family has certain items they use daily, and you need to ensure those items are packed first. For example, if you have young children, all their toiletries must stay together, so they know where everything is located. If you have small children who use bottles or sippy cups, get them packed before anything else because they may not remember where their bottles are stored in the new home.
When you arrive at your new home, your bathroom items should already be organized, and anything unnecessary has been disposed of. Unpacking should be easy!
Moving is a stressful time, requiring a lot of advance planning, physical labor, and patience. How can you lighten your load during this time? By being smart: be prepared to handle packing efficiently, moving supplies, and all the other aspects of the packing process. This way, you can get to what matters: unpacking your kitchen and bathroom essentials! Our moving company is happy to help with all your moving needs.
